There is a popular song on all lips in Nigeria today – CORRUPTION, CORRUPTION CORRUPTION! Our filmed play YEEPA coming soon on DVD release soon provides comic relief and cools frayed nerves. YEEPA, a hilarious comedy translated from Prof Femi Osofisan’s Who Is Afraid of Solarin by Prof Dotun Ogundeji and Prof Femi Osofisan as Yeepa Solarin Nbo, the platform for the filmed play Yeepa.
On the journey from text to screen via thespian accomplishment involving seasoned theatre and film director Niji Akanni and an assembly of talented actors with formal theatre education from the University of Ibadan working with versatile and creative crop of actors from the traditional theatre orientation who have crossed over through changing media but retaining the spontaneity and versatility, a hallmark of the Yoruba travelling theatre tradition.
