ABUJA SHERATON. NOVEMBER 16-17, 2017.


The Nigerian Satire Festival 2017 is the first of an annual event to promote satire as a tool for dialogue and social commentary in Nigeria. The event is scheduled to hold on the United Nation’s International Day of Tolerance, November 16 & 17, at the ballroom of Sheraton, Ladi Kwali, Abuja. Over the two days, participants – citizens and government – will dialogue and highlight serious issues without offending sensibilities.

Here comes BLACKOUT, a satirical play on the state of electricity supply in Nigeria.

Lick your fingers clean
You murderous lot!
Or were the ones we buried yesterday
Slaughtered by unknown apparitions?
Your pens and silence are guns
Your cowardice, indifference are daggers
