I’m sure you know a lot of Yoruba movie villains check out the most notorious ones.
Fatai Odua famously known as Lalude is a veteran Yoruba on-screen character who is a stanza in custom and culture of Yoruba land. Laude is one of the best Yoruba entertainers in assuming the customary job.
Lalude is tremendous in spells and it’s a powerhouse in motion pictures particularly the film he goes about as a botanist, well he barely assumes different jobs. His manner in those jobs he played is something that made him stand apart among his companions.
If I call him Tajudeen Adeoye, numerous individuals may not know who I am discussing. Be that as it may, the second I notice Abija, tongues will begin swaying in his acclaim. The young people of today may not so much know him much, however, those in their 30s upwards have had all that could possibly be needed of Abijah’s ability with regards to acting in Yoruba epic films.
If Abija isn’t the lead warrior in any film back, at that point, numerous individuals may choose not to watch it. That is to reveal to you how much love individuals had for him back in the days. Abijawarabiekun made our days as children. We grew up observing him on our high contrast TV screens until the times of shading TVs.
From him, a significant number of us become familiar with certain spells and film activities [laughs]. The ‘margarine children’s won’t get this – Those days, in the wake of watching Abija films, we will assemble someplace to begin our own version of the film. Somebody will be Abija and someone else might be Fadeyi Loro or Lalude or Sokoto or Arakangudu, Dagunro, Ogunjimi, and numerous others; at that point, we begin heaving chants like warriors. What wistfulness!
Abija doesn’t kick the bucket in motion pictures. He is consistently the victor everything being equal and that is the reason we as a whole child would need to address themselves as Abija.
Yoruba Veteran Actor, Dagunro Alajiga Ogun was born in Osogbo, Osun state. He started acting at a very young age as he got inspiration from his school teacher who was also a great veteran actor identified as Late Duro Ladipo. Dagunro graduated from a primary school in the year 1968. And that was his highest educational qualification.
This great movie personality started acting before he finished his primary school education. Dagunro was also trained as a mechanic but he left the craft because of his passion for acting. Late Dagunro celebrated his 50 years on stage in the year 2015.
This Yoruba movie legend married only one wife and he was blessed with 5 children, 3 boys, and 2 girls. Two of Dagunro’s children have decided to follow his footsteps as they have chosen careers in entertainment. Dagunro’s third child, Jamiu Olabankewin is also an actor. He started the acting profession with the guidance of his father from childhood days.
