The son of late veteran comedian, Baba Sala, Mayowa Joseph Adejumo, with stage name, B’sala, has said his late father regined even after death for his creativity.
B’sala noted that his late father never cracked jokes from the Bible, nor make jest of pastors, which is somehow in vogue at the moment.
He stated: “M y late dad, Baba Sala, reigned for over three decades as a comic act because he did not create his comedy from the word of God.
“You know, some people who claim to be funny, create their jokes mocking pastors, jesting about Bible verses, etc and they claim to be creative.I call it emptiness”, he stated.
The late comedian,Moses Olaiya, better known by his stage name, Baba Sala, was a Nigerian comedian, dramatist and actor.
A Yoruba from Ijesha, Baba Sala, regarded as the father of modern Nigerian comedy, alongside other dramatists like Hubert Ogunde, Kola Ogunmola, Oyin Adejobi and Duro Ladipo, popularised theater and television acting in Nigeria.
