BIKIYA GRAHAM-DOUGLAS STELLAR PERFORMANCE AT THE CAPE TOWN FRINGE FESTIVAL
At the recently concluded Cape Town Fringe Festival 2016, Nigeria was well represented, as our very own Bikiya Graham Douglas delivered an outstanding performance of the critically acclaimed play, Wait, a true celebration of women who have succeeded in the face of adversary, written and directed by Dipo Agboluaje and Kenneth Uphopho respectively.
For the performance, “Graham-Douglas flaunts her versatility by kicking off with strong and clear Afro-jazzy vocals, balanced by the whimsical idealism of her character. She hits the mark as, with raw intensity, she taps into the despair and disappointment of a woman left with limited options” (excerpt taken from www.whatsonincapetown.com)
After exceptionally executing an astounding and remarkable performance, Graham-Douglas maintained her modesty and humility by saying “To affect lives positively through my craft is everything, I’m humbled by how much love South Africa showed me. We can all make a difference in ensuring girls have access to education and have choices” I’m honoured to lend my voice to this cause.”
Bikiya was styled by Mabello Clothier throughout the festival which was sponsored by Ford Foundation.
