BABATUNDE Ojobaro’s Theatre Hub Africa (THA) has announced the South-West Tour for Oluronbi The Musical.

The stage play is expected to stop at different states in southwest states in Nigeria including Oyo state, Osun, Ogun, and Lagos.

Ojobaro, the founder of THA said that he’s committed to contributing efficiently and consistently to the revival of Theatre Culture in Nigeria.

He said that the tour will kick off in Oyo State on May 2 because the state remains the cradle of entertainment in the South-West.

“When I was graduating in Theatre Arts from the University of Ibadan there was really nothing to look forward to in terms of practice. Whatever we’ve learned in school even knowing fully well that the Nigerian situation doesn’t guarantee that you’ll practice what you learned.

“For some reasons theatre is a professional course like Law, medicine and the rest. I decided that I wanted to create a platform that can give hope and assurance that when you graduate studying theatre arts there’s somewhere you can shock your head.”

Speaking on Oluronbi, a myth with different versions, Ojobaro said, “I was fortunate to be one of those children who visited their grandparents during the holidays and they rendered different stories to us like tales by moonlight.

“Oluronbi happened to be one of the stories I was told and the summary is a woman got a child from the spirit world and promised to return the child but eventually didn’t want to. Oluronbi was a myth it didn’t happen and from the different versions, the concept was behind just one.
