Actress and media personality Temi Otedola has made her stage debut in “Motherland The Musical.” Directed and produced by Nigeria’s Queen of Theatre, Bolanle Austen Peters, the play was a perfect blend of costuming and storytelling. In the stage play, Otedola acts and sings as Young Hassana, a Fulani girl who must navigate forbidden love amidst the political and social turmoil of 1957 Nigeria.
Set in modern-day Nigeria but making many references to the past, “Motherland” is a fast-paced, educational, and emotional look into Nigeria’s history and the country’s current state. The play features actors like Francis Onwochei, Bamike Olawunmi-Adenibuyan, and Uzo Osimkpa.

5. Atletico Madrid set Joao Felix asking price amid Man Utd & Arsenal interest
Arsenal and Manchester United have been told the asking price for Joao Felix 💰— GOAL News (@GoalNews) January 8, 2023
Atletico Madrid has set their Joao Felix asking price amid interest from Manchester United and Arsenal. Atletico is demanding a £9.5 million ($10.8m) loan fee for the Manchester United and Arsenal target, with an obligation to buy the Portugal international for £70.5m, according to reports. The 23-year-old moved to the Spanish capital from Benfica in 2019 but is now free to leave having fallen out of favor with manager Diego Simeone.
Erik ten Hag is looking to bolster his forward options at Old Trafford following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo in November, while Arsenal is also looking for an additional spark as the Gunners look to maintain their lead at the top of the Premier League table. United has already stepped up their pursuit of the attacker and made an opening offer of a straight loan for around £3.5m while committing to cover the player’s agent. Jorge Mendes is understood to have met with Atletico’s CEO, Miguel Angel Gil on Thursday to present United’s opening offer, but the move was dismissed.
