ABSTRACT

This research explores critically the context of dramatic performance in Olojo Festival, a traditional celebration in favour of Ogun in File Ice. In the course of discussing the dramatic elements and performances embedded in it, the props and costume used also come to the fore. It further questions the role of Ogun as an hero before his deification as purported by the Euhemerist, with a view to accounting for his bravery, courage and greatness.

His role as the god of Iron and why adherents still celebrate him till today is also explained. The research finally seek to explore the significance of each costume as they underscore and portrays the immense role of Ogun, the God of Iron.
