Yorùbá Veterans: In their own words


The Yorùbá Veterans Oral History Project aims to collect and document here oral accounts and testimonies of elders and seniors in the Yorùbá filmmaking segment of Nollywood. Like the main project itself, much of the work is ongoing and contents are being uploaded as they become available. Contributions and feedback are welcomed.   

In the first set of interviews, Nigerian poet, Rasaq Malik travelled around the south-west of Nigeria, and sat down with several veterans of Yorùbá Nollywood, including bàbá Lere Paimo and Musuliu Dasonfunjo, to discuss the Yorùbá movie industry in the country.
