Tunde Odunlade, an art and culture expert, has launched a cultural centre in Ibadan, capital of Oyo state.
The event, which took place on Thursday, had in attendance a deluge of stakeholders in the art industry.
The art and culture centre named “Tunde Odunlade Arts and Culture Connexions” is situated in a multi-story rotunda building within New Bodija, the city’s middle-class neighbourhood.
A source with the establishment, who spoke to TheCable Lifestyle on Sunday, said that the centre aims to serve as the new base of art and culture activities in Ibadan.
“It will host year-round art exhibitions, regular entertainment, drama, poetry recitals, book reading, and dance,” the source added.
“The ecosystem designed to support the Center will include refreshment facilities serving both palm- wine and more conventional food and drinks.”
Among those who spoke at the event is Ademola Aderinto, a special assistant to and representative of Seyi Makinde, the Oyo state governor.
Aderinto lauded the initiative and prayed that the centre will lead the charge to return Ibadan to its glory days of arts.
Others who also spoke at the event are Femi Osofisan, Yemi Farombi, Bolanle Awe, and Catherine Ade-Ajayi.
