By Modupe Gbadeyanka The popular play coming this June titled Isale Eko has received the backing of Wema Bank Plc, the innovative bank that pioneered Africa\u2019s first fully digital bank called ALAT. Isale Eko is one of the notable plays in Nigeria, bringing back the theatre culture dating back as far as 1945 when Nigerian playwright, late Hubert Ogunde, established a professional touring company. It was in this same year that Mr Ogunde\u2019s troupe started exciting Nigerians across theatres nationwide that Wema Bank was established. However, the bank\u2019s support for the arts is beyond the history shared with theatre, but in keeping with its desire to always support creativity and innovation in all forms.
