Ogungbe started acting decades before the advent of home videos. He was one of the greatest theatre practitioners of his time. Apart from stage plays, Akin Ogungbe had many plays made specifically for TV production.
One of his most popular productions was “Ireke Onibudo” , a D.O Fagunwa novel written in the 1950s which he made into a movie. His son, Segun Ogungbe who is an actor and movie producer confirmed the incident.
