Dreams do come true!!!I represented the cast of Fela! during fashion week at the Manhattan Pavillion. This week was action packed with a great time of beginning rehearsals and my official modeling, cat walking, heel clicking premiere! I walked in the show presented by Elle magazine, Oral B (hence the toothbrushes in the background pics). It was curated by Caravan! I met some cool models, actresses,jewelry designers, and the Real House Wives of New Jersey! One of their children walked in the show as well. I wore a hip hugging dress by Tart. Friends Tallia Brinson, Sahr Ngaujah, and Benjamin Brown were there to support and Ben and Joshua took pics. . . Enjoy some pics from the day. .

Hello family,

Its been quite a year! I remember when I started this blog and I had performed in Central Park at the Delacort in Hair over the summer and at the same time as Fela! was off Broadway at 37 Arts. I saw the show and enjoyed my friend Sahr Ngaujah starring in this touching and jam packed musical portrayal of Fela Anikulapo Kuti's rich life! I laughed, I cried, took pics and wrote a blog about it! Now here I am proud to announce I'll be appearing in Fela too! After many auditions and a summer of double duty with Fela! rehearsals in the daytime and Hair at night. We are getting it ready for the Eugene O'neil stage. This production stars Sahr Ngaujah, Kevin Mambo, myself, Saycon, and the fabulous Lilias White. Along with a talented ensemble of dancers and Antibalas, the Afrobeat orchestra of NYC! We are directed by the incredible Bill T. Jones. I'm so excited about this time and I'm thrilled to announce on Saycontalks that Fela! is finally coming to Broadway and I'm gonna be a part of it!!!

Hope to see you there!!!

Saycon and Kojo Modibo Sun Rocked Joe's Pub!!!!

After a fond farewell from Hair on Broadway I charged right into preparations for my show at Joe's Pub in New York City! I rehearsed with Scott Patterson and the band of Kojo Modibo Sun and we made it happen. Joe's Pub was a wonderful place to perform! The show was hot and it was an exciting night charged with energy, fun, and music!!! Click the link or copy and paste the link below to see more pics!

SAYCON's final performance at Hair!

Hello friends I have some news! I have left the Broadway production of Hair! After a wonderful turn in a show that took me from Letterman to Conan to Good Morning America and back, its now time to say goodbye! Enjoy some pics from the wonderful experience that Hair on Broadway was for me! Those hippies will be sorely missed!

God Bless!
