Theatrical passions are shared by the two sisters. They have worked along with the healthcare provider Baxter International to develop a community awareness campaign for renal illness. They wrote the screenplay for a special “Black-ish” episode. Tia’s words were as follows:
The most fulfilling and significant role in forming the person I am now has been played by Theater 1.

Speaking about the pair’s accomplishment, their mother, Lemi-Ola Erinkitola, said she was very proud of her daughters. Their mother, in her words;
“I was happy since it gave their academic years spent together, in which they are attending different colleges, a wonderful, fitting conclusion. It went beyond the title and was really emotional. It was the fact that they could both use that platform together and that it would serve as a lasting memory for them.
