Recognition for positive behavior is an appropriate response from the social environment to elicit desirable external behavior among the youth. Such positive responses, triggered from various social systems, is what we made Queen Moremi The Musical not just an evening entertainment piece but more on the historical heroism awareness and self-realization for the youth to take the center seat in solving today’s societal challenges that we battle daily.
Queen Moremi’s unique personalities, that we are utmost proud of, embodies all of these heroic elements such as selflessness, determination, loyalty and patience which has been put in the minds of the audience.
Positive behavior recognition is especially important to youth’s development because it promotes identity formation as well as cultivates moral reasoning and social perspective thinking from the various personalities she exhibited. The practical implications of these positivity is when the audience left the hall feeling inspired, pumped and super excited to be the change they want to see in the society.
The first thing you think about when you hear Queen Moremi The Musical is how intriguing the audience at Terrakulture felt with the dramatic performance of the untold stories of our greatest female heroine that came from the African soil. The beauty of the show was it’s ability to capture the attention of the audience throughout the time span of the play. You can safely say that there was never a dull moment! Queen Moremi The Musical broke records becoming the first stage play centered around a tru- life female heroism in Nigeria, to have sold out on all 27 of its shows with the extra shows added due to popular demand by the audience. It is remarkable that hundreds of people went in their numbers to see the play, however, it was even more interesting to realize that many of the viewers saw the play more than once. This alone demonstrated that it was a play rich in culture and content. Noteworthy was the fact that it wasn’t centered around entertainment for just the Yoruba folks but had a widespread acceptance across various cultures in Nigeria and beyond. It was endearing to see non-Nigerians turn out excitedly to come watch our culture in full blast.
During the show the older generation expressed their assurance about how relieving with the musical one of the most selfless, confident heroism act of our time that Queen Moremi Ajasoro exhibited is forecasted to be a sound wake up call for the younger generation.

Eventually saw Queen Moremi The Musical with a friend today, I would categorize it differently from other productions though it was a collabo, it’s a history play, well researched and good acting performance by cast and crew. Alot of A-List actors =, experienced actors and super good new faces I just got to know. The opening for Precious was electric! I got sold from there

Queen Moremi… the Musical. This is officially the best stage play i’ve seen in a long time. Awesome casts, costume and crew. The excitement from the clips on social media was super underrated.
Queen Moremi The Musical is super timely in the recent discussions and spring up of gender equality. This musical was made by and for women “In superhuman culture you don’t see a lot of women and relieving Moremi shows that just like we can be finance analysts, business entrepreneurs we can also be great leaders in our society. And the key learning is that she earned her equality right as opposed to begging for it. We are happy to have exposed our younger generation to taking ownership, especially the females.
The success of the December editions which includes the sellout of the extra shows and clamor by people to have another edition, is why we believe the director Bolanle Austen-Peters, concept creator Princess Ronke Ademiluyi, the executive producers, House of Oduduwa Foundation and Rejuvenee, is bringing back 21 raving shows this Easter, and we are more than ready for the electrifying show. Save the Date April 18th – May 5th, expect more dramatic costumes
