Broadway in New York and London's West End are known for musicals, but now can the city of Lagos join them?

Nigeria's first major musical has opened with a production called Saro.

It is the story of people seeking a better life in Lagos, which they see as a place of opportunity.

Focus on Africa's Tomi Oladipo attended the premiere, which has been tipped to lead a resurgence in Nigerian theatre.
