Late Adewoyin is famous for her role as Madam Tinubu in ‘EFUNROYE TINUBU’, written by Professor Akinwumi Isola and directed by Gbenga Adewusi in 1989. EFUNROYE TINUBU was later adapted for television and was a screen hit all through 1989/1990.

The play toured Nigeria before finally being staged in the USA in 1986. Aunty Bose, as she was fondly called, was a quintessential actress, dancer and costumier.

She was on the contingent of the Lagos State Council for Arts and Culture that performed Funmi Odusolu’s famous dance musical, ‘ORÍ’ (Destiny). Madam Tinubu would later costume many plays for stage and screen while she also acted along. She acted alongside Oga Bello (Adebayo Salami) in Funke Akindele’s ‘ỌMỌ GHETTO’.

While she played Mama Onimama, Oga Bello played Baba Onibaba. A staffer of the Lagos State Council for Arts and Culture, she participated in many editions of the National Festival of Arts and Culture, NAFEST. Bose Adewoyin, now dead, also took part in many of the council’s plays and dance productions.
