Nigerian Entertainers Promoting Immorality In The Society – Fuoye Dean Bakare Ojo

A top professor in Ekiti state has condemned indiscipline and lack of self control among some theatre practitioners.

Dr Bakare Ojo, a theatre expert and Dean, School of Postgraduate Studies, Federal University, Oye-Ekiti told news men in Lagos that immorality should not become habit as a result of being in the entertainment sector.

“As a professor, I would not prescribe a particular way of life to my students, because every individual is unique on their own. “But there are borders that should not be crossed in the process of being unique. “Whatever you know the society appalls should not be done,” he said.

The dance expert said that human beings were made to have a conscience which should be an anchor for everything they did.

“Whatever the conscience of the society rejects should be rejected in your conducts. “I tell my students this every time not because I have the right to tutor them, but because I have gathered enough experience in the field. He added that the end products of artistes were consumed by the society which in turn impacted them negatively or positively.

“No matter how radical you may want to be, the society is the final consumer of your act. “If the society rejects what you have to offer, know that it’s going to affect the art you’re trying to create,” he said. (NAN)

  1. Reasons y I prefer watching old movies of 2000, n there abt……. Dat was wen movies were acted to educated d general audience wit grt lessons learnt @ d end……

  2. This guy is absolutely right, As a Nigerian living in uk. Am applaud with the lyrics, dressing as porn stars and swearing like Americans. Why can’t this Artist be themselves. No authenticity. I have a teenage daughter and despite living in western world, we are very protective. It’s sad.

  3. Are we talking about some theatre practitioners or all? There is a majority of theatre practitioners who are positively impacting on society. Artistes aren’t merely supposed to promote what society condones. Influential artistes change societies positively. This uncritical and dismissive take on artistes is largely misrepresentative. Consider Footprints of David and Crowne Troupe of Africa in Bariga, to start with.
