In 1964, Baba Adédèjì Ògúnǹ wrote Yorùbá Ronú.

The play is a satire meant to expose the political rivalry between Olóyè Obáfẹ́mi Awólọ́wọ̀ and his protégé Olóyè S.L. Akíntọ́lá, the later Yorùbá chief betrayed the former

The rivalry came after a split up that resulted out of betrayal by S.L Akíntọ́lá, when Awólọ́wọ̀; his boss was imprisoned.

Trouble looms in the village when the king was in locked away, the villagers lived in hardship while their beloved king was away.

But the saying that “bí irọ́ bá pẹ́ títí, òtítọ́ yó bá a” came to play, after much protest by his people, the gods intervened and not so long the king was replaced to his rightful position and peace was restored to the village.
