After putting in work all week long, the Shine Ya Eyes Housemates finally thrilled us to their much-anticipated play. This musical theatrical play cut across different tribes, showcasing Nigeria’s cultural diversity in all its richness and grandeur was performed by all the Housemates. The presentation marked the completion of the first Abeg Task in the House.
Putting up a show
Cross got the play started calling it “the greatest show ever” in his opening remark. Once the welcome address was out of the way, the Housemates took turns to the stage where they demonstrated the rich traditions and cultures of the various tribes in Nigeria in their musical dramas. Their play took them from the east to the west and from the north to the south, demonstrating the essence of their cultures. They ended their show by emphasizing the need for unity in spite of the diverse cultures.
Impressed by their performance, Biggie showered them with compliments as he congratulated them for a job well done. From Liquorose, whom he compared to a veteran actor, to Whitemoney, whose songs he mentioned helped elevate this musical from being interesting to captivating, and to Sammie, whom he said deserved applause and an award. To reward them, he threw a Jacuzzi Party for them and gave them Abeg Naira.
For a group of amateur artistes, the Shine Ya Eye Geng put on quite a stellar performance and we can’t wait to see more from them as the Show goes on. Hopefully, rehearsals and brainstorming sessions for future Abeg Tasks among the Geng won’t be as complicated as it was this time. As entertaining as it was to watch them go at each other during the early preparation stages, we think they can achieve more if they are less confrontational… or maybe that’s just their winning formulae.
