ODUNFA @30: It’s a truism that the journey of a thousand year starts with a step. Same is the story of how ODUNFA CAUCUS, the foremost film body, popular in the yoruba film sector got ignited. It was not pre-meditated or planned. The thespians who formed the pillars of this noble caucus normally converged at 40, Odunfa Street, E/Metta, Lagos as friends. And unconsciously there was unison in thoughts and mindsets. Precisely in 1986 the great ODUNFA CAUCUS was birth.


The journey has been smooth and rough, but believe this, it is just the grace of God and collective decision to give room for new talents who rises and mature within the ranks forms part of the driving force. We equally within the house choose to respect each others view and decide not to ever give room for open or public confrontation.


However, in the past 30yrs, Odunfa Caucus have produced wonderful talents and have injected them into the main stream Nigerian movie industry. Am sure in the past 2 decades till date, some still believe if you are in this part of the industry and have not featured in any of Odunfa jobs, you are a green horn. Without going into lengthy individual details of stars and top thespians that Odunfa have produced, we are proud to say some of our products are top actors in the country, a large number are brands ambassadors and force to reckon with in the Nigerian entertainment industry.


The board members: Alh. Yinka Quadri, Alh Taiwo Hassan, Alh Abiodun Olanrewaju, Rasaq Ajao & Chief Kakawa Abiodun decides to unite all the products and alumni of Odunfa Caucus, show appreciation to God and few other people and invariably re-brand the citadel into a more formal film school so that the legacy won’t die.


The 30yrs celebration is a 2day event which will include:


Day 1: Prayer & Charity Activities to resident widows, widowers & less privilege


Day 2: Grand Finale: AWARD & a N35million Fund Raising for the ODUNFA CAUCUS Theatre & Films Institute. Signed: Abbey Lanre
