Abiose Champions Theatre Revolution for Positive Change, Calls for Support
By Alabidun Shuaib AbdulRahman
The visionary founder and creative head of Osumare KreatiVision, Lukman O. Abiose, has unveiled the profound motivation behind his unwavering commitment to the world of theatre.
Beyond personal fulfillment, Abiose perceives theatre as a potent instrument for instilling hope, nurturing dreams, and impacting lives positively.
In a heartfelt message commemorating the new month and Nigeria’s Independence Day on Sunday, Abiose expressed that his passion extends beyond personal success. He is dedicated to uplifting talented performers and cultivating a community that believes in the possibility of a fulfilling life through theatre.
He stressed that supporting his shows goes beyond a mere endorsement of his career; it’s an investment in the dreams of countless artists collaborating with him and an inspiration for those drawing courage from his daring exploits.
Championing positive change, Abiose aligns his theatrical pursuits with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), addressing issues such as poverty, hunger, decent work, and economic growth.
In his own words, “Making theatre is me standing up for art, I am making theatre for positive change.”
As Abiose embarks on what he terms a “Movement” and a “Great Revolution,” he urged the public to join him in supporting the cause, noting, “Theatre is more than entertainment—it’s a lifeline, a force for good, and a means to save lives.”
He acknowledged that despite his ambitious dreams, he cannot accomplish the mission alone.
“With the upcoming production, ‘KONJI HARVEST IN LAGOS,’ I implore everyone to contribute in any way possible.
The plea is urgent, and the stakes are high.
“If I die in the pursuit of this dream, I will feel fulfilled as long as you KEEP THEATRE HOPE ALIVE with your continuous patronage of the art!”
