I spent a great part of today with the Managing Director of Terra Kulture, Bolanle Austyn-Peters, discussing how her arts and cultural centre on Victoria Island, could be a major supporter of "A Season of Soyinka", (4 of the master's works and one of mine 'Who's Afraid of Wole Soyinka?'). We got it all sorted- through the 5 Sundays of July, Terra will be the venue of "The Season...", the biggest theatrical celebration of WS in Nigeria in the recent past.
After taking important business lessons from Bolanle, I made her come into the gallery of her establishment and took pictures of her. Sometimes one forgets she's a lawyer too...all beauty and brains. The picture in the background is part of a photo exhibition at Terra by Hakeem Adedeji titled "Noblesse", showing five children of Northern Nigerian Royalty at the annual Durbar Celebration.
