May 2016 was a landmark month in Bini Kingdom history. For one major reason, His Royal Highness Eheneden Erediauwa, the Edaiken N’Uselu, was presented to the public as the next Oba, and PEFTI Film Institute performed Don Pedro Agbonifo Obaseki’s Epic Play, Idia.
History came alive and the Strength of the African Woman was celebrated when Queen Mother Idia led an army of 10,001 slaves and bronze-smiths to war, on the stage of PEFTI Film Institute.

The audience laughed and wept as the romance, tragedy, comedy and bravery of the Ancient Bini Kingdom was portrayed by a large cast of PEFTI Film Institute Students.
The performance was two-fold: a matinée for Secondary School students of Binta International School Ajao Estate, Gbolahan Preparatory High School Ajao Estate, and Binta International School Ejigbo; and a Command Performance which was well attended by notable individuals.
