Concepts

“We make the abstract tangible.”
~ Risikat “Kat” Okedeyi, LSP

As cultural architects, event concept production is just one of the many ways LiL SoSo Productions creates. The “moving parts” of a LiL SoSo production mimic the way that culture naturally occurs–seamlessly.  Whether we are producing original concept material or working with clients, we are all about making sure that in addition to a high level of detail, the event experience  leaves attendees energized and inspired.  We are mobile and global. No needs are too big or too far away. Listed below are two recent concepts. Portfolio is available upon request.

Black President’s Day: Fela Tribute

Press Release

Concept Overview:  Every year we celebrate the music legacy of Fela Anikulapo Kuti, the Nigerian musician and creator of Afrobeat music. This concept title refers to Fela’s run for the presidency of Nigeria in 1979 and recreates a modern-day shrine in honor of Fela’s Kalakuta Republic with altars set throughout the space. Djs, sometimes with live musicians, pay homage the entire night with tunes from Fela’s long discography as well as the music of his sons Femi and Seun and others inspired by Fela. In addition , special tribute is made to the women known as the “Queens” whereby female attendees “paint up” in  honor of the aesthetic made famous by the women that performed, lived and in some cases loved the protest artist.
