i think Wole Oguntokun is a voice of theatre in Nigeria... and i mean a big voice. from Ladugba to the other side and now prisason chronicles. He's really one voice that every should sit down quietly and listen... even though most time you cant help the humour he stylishly hides within his plays.
i haven't watched any other proffessional playwright of our generation do thier thing on stage... but watching Wole... is like watching all that theatre has to offer.
keep up Mr., we are listening

>>> a younger younger generation
