TOYIN ALABI, WINNER RADIO DRAMA PRIZE OF THE 14TH DAME, SPONSORED BY RALPH OPARA MEMORIAL FUND


 


Toyin Alabi is a staff of the Federal Radio Corporation, Kaduna national station

She is the producer of the radio drama series called Play House. The episode that won her this prize is titled Sunset at Dawn.

The story centers on the perception of people about wives who are delayed in giving child to their husband and the issue of child adoption. Set in a typical Yoruba community, the main actor in the play is faced with pressure from his parent in the village to take up another woman because the wife is yet to have a child after five years of marriage.

While the husband is faced with the choice of marrying another wife, the wife is advised by her friends to adopt a baby so as to please her in-laws.

Fortunately, before the completion of the adoption process, the couple was rewarded as the woman got pregnant the same month.

The play was aired on the 27th of November 2004.

The judges singled out this piece because of its use of dialogue and story line which is edifying and creative.
