Oba Adegboyega Dosunmu Amororo II, the Olowu of Owu Kingdom, has died.

In the 1980s, Oba Dosunmu was one of the producers of the popular television show ‘Village Headmaster.’

He died in Abeokuta, the capital of Ogun State, following a brief illness, according to reports.

Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, a former Nigerian President, is from Owu and is the Balogun of Owu kingdom.

On Tuesday, a source close to the palace confirmed to SaharaReporters that the monarch had died.

“Baba (Oba Dosunmu) is dead, he died yesterday. The mood in the palace is gloomy,” the source said.

In July 2005, Oba Dosunmu ascended to the throne. He had previously worked as a civil servant, broadcaster, and politician.

In 1956, Oba Dosunmu enrolled at King’s College in Lagos, and in 1963, he was accepted to Hendon College of Technology in London to study Drama and Television Production.

He then went on to Landmark Baptist College in Tennessee, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in theology in 1987.

In Ebute Metta, Lagos State, he worked for the Nigerian Railway Corporation. Later, he worked for a broadcasting company, rising to the post of Head of Drama Department.

In 1975, he quit the Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation to start Starline Films Limited, a private film production company. ‘Dinner with the Devil’ is a film he wrote and directed.

In an interview, the late Dosunmu stated that he refused to participate in any rituals prior to his coronation as king, viewing them as anti-progressive.
