Nigerian veteran actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo, popularly  known as RMD alongside with Rivers of Water Production, Patrick Otoro are set to unite Nigerians with a stage musical drama ‘One Good Man’.

While addressing the press in Abuja, Otoro the director of the stage musical dance drama mentioned.

The director also said that the stage musical drama is in 13 parts.

According to him, the musical drama perpetuates practical realities and Nigerian diversity that promote unity and peaceful coexistence.

“Many years ago, students use to eat chicken in school, school fees was never an issue; we use to have good lecturers that were willing to teach and impact on the students, where are those day?

“We use to have good hospitals and roads. In those days when we were growing up and nobody wants to know if you are a Muslim or Christian, Hausa or Igbo?

“We use to coexist without any perceived difference. I remember when I was a little boy from the south-south growing up in the north; when I slept in my Muslim brother’s house, his parents would carry me in their arms to my parents house.

“We want those days to come back. So the question is, who is that one good man that would lead us to the promise land. That is what the stage musical drama wants to achieve,” he said.

He picked point the diversity in Nigeria.

“I reckon that musical drama will help us express the diversity of Nigeria effectively on stage with music, costume and cuisine.

“Most of the songs we use are Nigerian songs,” Otoro said.

To buttress further, he said that the musical drama has about 13 songs with creative dancing, showcasing different ethnic group in the country.

He added that the dances were directed by a dynamic choreographer ‘Elevator’.

Otoro, however, said RMD would play Baba Tega, the father of the lead character.

He said that the stage musical drama would be staged in public on Nov.12 and 13 at NAF Conference, Abuja.

“Summarily, our story is that of contemporary Nigeria. You know that we are in electioneering season where politicians are now campaigning, asking Nigerians to vote them into power.

So we are telling Nigerians to vote wisely. Electorate should chose right. Who is that one good man that we will cast our ballot for?

It is in our hands, we can change our story; that is the story we want to tell.

I thank RMD and other members of the cast and crew. They have worked very hard in this project. Nigerians should vote wisely from the president to local government chairmen,” he concluded. (NAN)
