Anyone who has seen KSM’s Saga of the Returnee will admit that it is one of his best productions ever. Infact, it can be described as one of KSM’s masterpieces.
The good news is that a reloaded version of The Saga of the Returnee comes back as part of a programme dubbed Touch of Class, an entertainment series which is a collaboration between Sapphire and African Regent Hotel, under the auspices of the Chartered Institute of Marketing Ghana (CIMG).
It has been labelled entertainment for the discerning audience and a platform for corporate networking and promises to be an evening of enchanting entertainment.
The highlight of the evening will be the Saga of the Returnee. Unlike the regular stand-up comedy routines, this is a full length one-man-play. Although partly autobiographical, KSM plays the fictional character of Kenneth Oduro.
Saga of the Returnee will take guests on a roller coaster of side-splitting laughter as Kenneth narrates his ordeal of 18 years in America and his culture shock when he returns to Ghana. It promises to be totally hilarious and will keep guests at the edge of their seats from start to finish.
KSM plays four main characters in this play in the persons of B. K. Oduro (Kenneth’s father), Maame Docia (Kenneth’s mother), Yaw Oduro (Kenneth’s brother) and Gina (Kenneth’s sister-in-law).
In addition to these main characters, KSM also plays an array of minor characters notably Gary who is an exuberant African-American friend.
Touch of Class comes off on September 30 and October 1 at the African Regent Hotel at 7pm.
Also on the bill is the renowed spoken word artiste, Chief Mommen who is expected to thrill guests with his act as well as a host of others.
“We thought of doing something very different but classy, entertainment that will stay on the minds of Ghanaians for a long time to come and that is how the idea of Touch of Class came about. It promises to be an evening of enchanting entertainment, “ were the words of KSM.
