She will perform Wait, a performance piece written by Dipo Agboluaje, directed by Kenneth Uphopho and produced by Graham-Douglas’ Beeta Universal Arts Foundation.

This critically acclaimed piece made its debut at the Samuel Beckett Theatre in Dublin, Ireland, as part of Africa Day Conference 2015 and also showcased at the British Council Lagos Theatre Festival 2016 to a rousing audience. The performance highlights the strength of the African woman as she challenges a system that forces her into early marriage and tries to deny her education because she is a woman.
