Oliva Tweest: Hit Afrobeats Musical Returns

July 29, 2014 | Daniella & Letisha Jones-Ellis

Last year’s Afrobeats Musical is making its return to the London stage!

After a successful sell out in the West End, the Afrobeats Musical returns to London’s East End with their rendition of Oliver Twist, now titled ‘Oliva Tweest’.

Making its way to the Hackney Empire September 6th-7th, the play and its talented cast will be back for a limited time only with tickets available to purchase today. Written by Hackney resident Nana Duncan, the play was inspired by D’Banj hit, ‘Oliver Twist’.

‘Oliva Tweest consists of clever renditions of popular Afrobeats songs by artists such as Fuse ODG, Wizkid, DaVido and many more. The show boasts dynamic vocal arrangements, exciting choreography, hilarious ‘African family’ scenes and great music performed by a live band.’

If you want to join the celebration of Afrobeats music, ticket prices start at £36.
