Asap Reforms is an initiative by Aduke (A dancer, singer and Actress). It’s a movement that aims to use entertainment to bring socio-political issues to the fore. The first issue on the cards is #DomesticViolence.
We would be Marching in March from Unilag in Lagos, through Bariga and Somolu sharing fliers and educating people on the issues, cause and effects of #Domestic Violence.
Then over the 4 weekends, we intend to stage the play “Onions Make Us Cry” written by Zainab Jallo performed by Crown Troupe of Africa as directed by Segun Adefila.
With the walk, we can reach the grass root, while the chat session and plays can get the message across to the more upwardly mobile.
It warms my heart, knowing that initiatives like this are being taken in Nigeria, and i urge everyone out there in Nigeria to support the march, participate in the chit chat session, and also see the play,educate yourselves, and i hope this marks the beginning of bigger and better initiatives to come.
For more information feel free to follow them on twitter @asapreforms and @itsaduke.
“And to all those involved with ASAP REFORMS, i say a heartfelt well-done.
