While acknowledging a growing interest in theatre, the renowned actor emphasized the importance of authenticity and the need for realistic props and costumes to elevate performances.

In an interview with Joy FM at the press launch of Latif Abubakar’s latest play, “The Licence,” Omar expressed excitement about his role in the adaptation of Luigi Pirandello’s work.

“We still have a long way to go in terms of our sets. We still have to build good sets for our performances. We still have to have good costumes and then bring real props on set. The stage should be available for us to bring real props on set. We bring cars, bikes, horses, animals, so many things on set to make it realistic. We need a lot of realism on set,” he said.
