Ojude Oba And Awujale, The Movie!


Ojude Oba And Awujale, The Movie!

In the last few days, I’ve watched the world dot on the picturesque Ojude OBA festival, held on Tuesday, June 18, 2024, three days after the Sallah celebration, being a tradition started over 200 years ago by Oba Adesimbo Atunwase.

Today, that the festival has continued to grow in leaps and, the Ijebu people, no matter how highly placed, permanently leave that day on their calendar, explains their high regard for their monarch, Oba Sikiru Kayode Adetona.

This reverred monarch, despite his age, continued to be involved in the planning of the event each year, getting briefing from his distinguished Ijebu subjects, who served on the committee to make it happen.

Therefore, as we prepare for the premiere of the first ever Awujale biopic, the powerful story of Kabiyesi Kayode Sikiru Adetona in Ijebu, in five locations of Abeokuta, Lagos, London and America, we are more than pleased we did this project, which reveals how couragous and brave the current Awujale is and how important this king is to his people.

Directed by Tunde Laoye, Awujale, the biopic, stars Sola Sobowale, Debo Adebowale, Antar Laniyan, Jide Kosoko, Fred Amata, Yemi Sodimu, Dayo Amusa and Aishat Lawal, to mention a few.

We are excited, and certainly can’t wait.
