About Ajegunle

“Ajegunle” is a musical theatre production. Set in the Ajegunle district of Lagos, Nigeria, it follows the forthcoming Local Government Chairman elections and the struggle for leadership between the present Chairman and a young, hopeful duo Vic and Gabs, who are looking to make Ajegunle a better place.

The sitting Chairman, who has designs on extending his political career in Nigeria, has been informed by the Party Leaders that they doubt his resilience, and as such will be using the upcoming elections to gauge his ‘mettle and steel’. However, the Chairman’s attempts to impress lead to devastating results as he resolves to crush anyone standing in the way of his quest for a second term in office.

Will the Chairman wreak havoc as planned or will Vic and Gabs overcome the opposition and see their dreams of leading Ajegunle to a better tomorrow​,​ come true?

From the producer of “One Last Cry”, “42 Weeks”, “Nana”, “Daddy’s Girls” and ‘’Unbroken’’. Zera Productions presents a pulsating and electrifying musical called “Ajegunle” with music from leading contemporary artistes in Nigeria written, directed and produced by Gbadero Lahanmi. Lyrics by Linda Adame Sesay, Michael Femi Dada, Nike Dada and Gbadero lahanmi. Music composed by Michael Femi Dada.

Meet the Producer

From the rough note taking on a friends couch to the birth of a theatrical production company, Gbadero Lahanmi created Zera with the vision to tell untold stories in magnificent ways. Since its inception, Gbadero has worked tirelessly to create insightful, comical and unforgettable productions.

Gbadero’s first stage production, One Last Cry was held at St. George’s Theatre in 2010 and has since paved a way to many other successful plays such as 42 Weeks, Nana, Daddy’s Girls and Unbroken. The production ‘Nana’, was particularly praised for raising awareness of human trafficking to an audience of over eight hundred people. This was achieved through partnership with organisations such as London Metropolitan Police, House on the Rock London and the Anti-Slavery Foundation.

With just eight years in the game Gbadero has produced several thought-provoking productions. Gbadero’s vision is to stage further extraordinary productions in London and various cities all over the world.
