She is an avid lover of Contemporary and Theatre Arts. She has through the THESPIAN FAMILY THEATRE, been able to showcase her unique creativity and express her love for the arts through the plays she has written and produced.
The Crystal Slipper, as with Ayo’s other plays such as The Mad King of Ijudiya, The Five Maids of Fadaka, and Siddon de Look, is an extremely thought-provoking and entertaining theatre piece overtly mixed with a rich potpourri of dance, suspense, drama, comedy, music, traditional language and adulations.
Two of her plays have been directed by Tunji Sotimirin (A lecturer at the Department of Creative Arts, University of Lagos) and Abiola Segun Williams (Popular TV Soap Opera ‘Tinsel’ actor).
In addition to writing and stage production, she is passionate about youth mentoring, change, supporting the less privileged and community groups.
