Orijin is set to again promote culture through a partnership with Emmylyskilz Productions for the showing of Akinọlá àti Àríkẹ́, an adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet into Yoruba on Saturday, 12th February 2022 at New Culture Hall, Ibadan.
The leading alcoholic blend of African herbs and fruits said in a statement that it is committed to the promotion of culture and tradition. Indeed, the brand has over the years stayed true to this cause especially via relentless show of support to the creative industry through visual art, theatrical productions, fashion, orijinal music concert experiences, among others.
To celebrate the love season, the brand will be bringing another exciting cultural experience to the city of Ibadan as it partners Stage Alive productions for the stage play that speaks to love and betrayal.
Written by Ayo Adams and directed by Emmanuel Emmylyskilz Orisunmibare, Akinọlá àti Àríkẹ́ promises to treat consumers to a topnotch theatrical experience which is a perfect blend of the old Romeo and Juliet emotive storyline, garnished with a modern twist of freshness, as described by the artistic delivery of its cast members, who like Orijin, never lose touch with their roots.
As a brand that re-imagines ancient and established tastes to create a drink that is relevant and inspiring today, Orijin, the champion of reinvention, takes the best of what is in existence and uses it to make something new and fresh, hence, the partnership with the producers of ‘Akinọlá àti Àríkẹ́’– A re-invention of Romeo and Juliet – with a refined touch of Yoruba language.
