When A Country Continues Down The Path Of Corruption (According To Jungle Story 2)

Once upon a time, in a world full of magic, there was a land. The residents of this land were happy. The land flowed with milk and honey, and there were enough resources to go around. Peace and prosperity reigned, and all was well.

Until corruption crept in.

Corruption began to negatively influence the residents until they went from being honest and truthful to deceitful, fraudulent shells of their former selves. Due to this sudden and negative change in the nature of the people, things began to crumble. In an attempt to stop the madness, The Motherland – the land’s supreme deity – cast a spell on the land (and its residents by proxy), that anyone who engaged in corruption would be permanently turned into an animal.

But corruption had eaten deep into their psyches. The threat of The Motherland’s spell wasn’t enough to deter them from engaging in corruption. So one by one, the residents turned into animals. In a few years, the land became a full-fledged jungle.

This is the plot of Jungle Story 2, Sound Sultan’s star-studded, broadway-style stage musical. Inspired by the current events and occurrences in Nigeria, the show featured many celebrities like Femi Kuti, Odunlade, Osas Ajibade, Femi Branch, Richard Mofe-Damijo, Lasisi Elenu, AY, Yaw, MI, Buchi, Basket Mouth, Kate Henshaw, Harry Songz, Helen Paul, Ninja Band, Johnny Drille, Crown Troupe, Waler Ojo, Poco Lee, 2Face Idibia, Seyi Shay, Dare Art-Alade, and many others.

Jungle Story 2 was produced by Sound Sultan’s Naija Ninja productions with support from the MTN Foundation as part of its Arts & Culture Initiative, which is an initiative of the foundation aimed at promoting and telling Nigerian stories, wholesome family and national values, and empowering professionals in the Nigerian arts ecosystem by showcasing their work before a wider audience.

The MTN Foundation has sponsored some of the most compelling art productions in the last decade like Fela and the Kalakuta Queens, Legends: The Musical, Life in my City Art Festival, Made in Nigerian Poetry Show, High: The Play and many others.
