26 Sep Tolu Ogunlesi speaks about #NaijaNoDeyCarryLast
“The point of this collection of satirical pieces, covering a handful of years from Nigeria’s recent history, is that the country repeats itself endlessly as farce. In piece after satirical piece we’re given a privileged glimpse of Africa’s largest circus stage, filled with a cast of clowns whose genius lies in make biting satire feel like breaking news. And yet with all their talent, none can overshadow the biggest star of the production: Déjà Vu. Naija No Dey Carry Last is an immensely entertaining show of words: paeans, parables, plays and epistles; Pius Adesanmi does such a fine job one could easily get away with re-titling it: Pius No Dey Carry Last!”
Tolu Ogunlesi, West Africa Editor, The Africa Report.
