Chief Hubert Ogunde – Archive

Uploaded by on FreshNewCut

Ija Ominira and Ajani Ogun, inspired Ogunde to co-produce his first celluloid picture, Aiye, in 1979.

Chief Hubert Adedeji Ogunde, D.Lit., was a Nigerian actor, playwright, theater manager, and musician who created the African Music Research Party, Nigeria’s first current professional theatrical group, in 1945.

He authored more than 50 plays over his theatrical career, the majority of which have dramatic action, dance, and music, as well as a tale that reflects the political and social circumstances of the day. He produced Yoruba Ronu, a controversial drama that drew him the wrath of Chief Akintola, the Western Region’s leader at the time.

Hubert Ogunde has been labeled as “the father of Nigerian theater” and “the founder of contemporary Yoruba theater”.

Sit back, relax, dance and download his music.
