Nigeria has produced quite a number of illustrious playwrights over the decades - like Wole Soyinka, Zulu Sofola, J. P. Clark, Femi Osofisan, Ola Rotimi among others.
The highly talented and charismatic Laolu Ogunniyi is however synonymous with the (small) screen more than any other playwright - with millions in west Africa enamoured with his work over the decades.
Laolu Ogunniyi obtained Graduate Diplomas in TV production and Cinematography from the Television and Film Academy of London. That was decades ago in his youth.
He would subsequently work in London University, University of Ibadan, Lead University, among otherss over the years. And in television he produced wonders!
