Spectacular new Afrobeats musical Oliva Tweest follows the ambitious dreams of London hustler and club-promoter Tobi, as he navigates comedic and sometimes explosive clashes with women, family tradition, and his reawakened conscience.

The original 2013 version of this inspiring show sold-out in the West End and attracted a whole new theatre-going audience to a subsequent run at Hackney Empire, before heading to Nigeria.

For 2018, the updated and refreshed Oliva Tweest is ready to tour the UK with a fresh, feel-good format.

Tobi, is a self-proclaimed gyalis (ladies’ man) who wants more out of life. Driven by his need to succeed, he plans the ultimate show to attract his idol D’Banj, naming it after the musician’s global hit Oliver Twist.

Tobi hopes the concert will propel his career in the entertainment business, but when he finds out the new landlord of his concert venue, Pastor Bayodele, intends to convert the building into a church, Tobi is forced to disguise his true intentions.

Featuring classic and original hit songs performed by live African band and refreshing high-energy choreography for a new era of musical entertainment.

Recommended for ages 14+
