The 9th edition of “Yaw Live on Stage” series tagged #APERE was held on Sunday, May 28 at Eko Hotels Convention Centre and it got the whole of Lagos talking. In case you are still not sure if the hype is worth it, here are six reasons why you shouldn’t be missing the biggest comedy show of the year.
Yaw’s Unique Stage Play Plot
Over the years, Yaw has transformed from being just a funny OAP and TV actor into a professional comedian and stage play actor. From the first edition of “Yaw Live on Stage” series, there has been a noticeable difference in his flair. His antics and delivery have become funnier and more relatable.
Sound Sultan In A Never-Before-Seen Fashion
The APERE buzz has gone beyond the shores of Nigeria and Sound Sultan’s role in the stage play has raised some eyebrows but reports have revealed otherwise. It is being said that musician and actor Sound Sultan will bring something exceptional to the APERE experience. Rumour has it that after APERE, he might delve into fulltime acting.
A Long List Of Fun-Packed Performances
Last year at the 8th edition of the “Yaw Live on Stage” series ‘Shalanga’, we witnessed an unusually long eclectic list of top Nigerian musical acts such as Olamide, Burna Boy, Reminisce, Falz, Korede Bello, Patoranking, Timaya, Adekunle Gold, CDQ, Solid Star, YCEE, Seyi Shay and many others who delivered exhilarating performances at the show. The show also witnessed some of the most celebrated A-list comedians who threw the audience into gales of laughter.
Another Nostalgic Journey Down Memory Lane
Ask those who were present for Shalanga, they’ll tell you how much they enjoyed reminiscing on their favourite pastimes. Hilarious clips from cartoon shows like Sesame Street, Fraggle Rock, SuperTed were displayed on a huge screen and they had the audience cheering and reliving old memories. The APERE experience was not different this year. A lot more throwback videos of shows and TV series from the 80’s and 90’s gathered to entertain and prickle guests with feelings of nostalgia. There’s nothing better than a good old fashioned journey through a memory lane.
