Date for next performance
As the morning sun rises gently and gloriously over Africa, the people rise like tender flowers searching for the first light of day. The rhythm echoes into the morning as dancers leap and sway to its routine awakening.
In walks Lehana, with her seductive and enchanting glow, her friends frolicking closely behind her. Lehana’s sweet and soulful melodic essence captivates even the most unsuspecting man and she is aware of her splendour.
While suitors, including the seemingly frivolous Conteh try to win her heart, Lehana contends with the emotions of falling for more than one man. One is never enough for me, she confides in her closest friend and confidant, as she seeks out her advice. She never suspected that she could fall for both Tyrone and Mukasa and definitely doesn’t want the news to reach the local group of gossipers. This is unbecoming behaviour for a girl of her status and family background.
Lehana often attends Tyrone’s gathering at the dancehall. With the music and dance an intoxicating mix for both Lehana and Tyrone, they grow ever closer. In no time, Lehana falls completely and utterly in lust, allowing her heart’s desire to win over her confusion. Unwittingly, she succumbs to Tyrone’s moves and charms, whimsically wedding him.
As celebrations illuminate the evening, the never do or die Mukasa has one more plan to edge his way closer to Lehana .His flirtatious presence is not missed by Lehana who eventually yields to his advances while Conteh ineffectively tries to grab her attention.
In a fit of reckless abandon, Lehana runs away with Mukasa to secretly tie the knot. As celebrations ensue, Conteh continues to try impressing Lehana only for his advances to be heartbreakingly rejected. While the secret festivities continue, word soon spreads throughout the town of Lehana’s subsequent nuptials. Tyrone is least impressed and has to deal with them both.
Tyrone, heartbroken and humiliated, immediately contests the union in a physical fight with Mukasa trying to win his beloved Lehana back. During their hand-to-hand battle, a stranger named Rico appears to break the fight apart. Tyrone and Mukasa engrossed in their scuffle clear the way, leaving Rico alone to witness Lehana’s spectacular beauty. As time passes by, the comforter and peacemaker Rico, lures Lehana into yet another affair. She secretly hopes this is the one to last a lifetime.
One evening as the beautiful sun sets across the Savannah, Lehana and Rico call on their friends to celebrate their new union only for it to unknowingly be witnessed by Tyrone and Mukasa who unceremoniously confront them both. Realising the deceitfulness of her ways, both Tyrone and Mukasa choose to part ways with Lehana for ever. Regrettably, Rico takes this opportunity to point out Lehana’s misdeeds and leaves her to reflect on the hurt she has caused. Besides he was never that serious.He was in it for the thrill and competition.
Alone and heartbroken, Conteh provides Lehana the love that she has always longed for. After a string of lustful relationships and meaningless companionship, Lehana realises that she has never experienced real love and oblivious to her, Conteh has always been her true love. As fate beckons and love conquers all, Lehana and her close friends prepare for her impending nuptials. For once, this union will be for good and Lehana will fulfil her true heart’s desire.
