Band Aid premiered in May, 2014 and recorded over large audiences and rave review in the media and on online, which prompted a repeat showing in December 12, 2014 at the MUSON.

Band Aid is the story of three Band mates – Femi , Flex, and Ton, connected by their love for music who meet and fall in love with Ivie who is also a music enthusiast.

They think she can help them conquer their fears and become successful. They think she has come to save them from themselves but she takes them on as a project to fill a void in her life. What happens when her demons emerge from the past she is trying to escape from? This is the conundrum at the heart of this funny, reflective and exhilarating play.

The play draws the audience in with good humour, AMAZING music and hits them with the truth they need to hear about chasing ones dreams and fighting ones fears.

Band Aid 2015 also features Toyin Oshinnaike who plays Sekere, Toju Akiya Ejoh who plays Ralph.
