Legendary theatre practitioner, playwright and musician, Chief Hurbert Adedeji Ogunde (16 July 1916 – 4 April 1990) is one of the front runners of Nigerian cinema.
He founded the first contemporary professional theatrical company in Nigeria, Ogunde Theatre Party and is one of the backbones of what the movie industry in Nigeria is today.
We came across clips from a BBC TV documentary.
