Theatre Arts Department Holds 3rd Induction Ceremony.

 

Drum beats, songs and drama, these are the hallmarks of theatre arts. And all these reverberated at the 3rd induction cereimage 12mony of the newly matriculated students of the Theatre and Media Arts Department of Federal University, Oye-Ekiti. On ground to conduct the initiation were two veteran stage aces, Mojisola Olaiya and Bayo Bankole (Boy Alinco). Amidst the sound of talking drums, songs and drama, the initiation was conducted as the inductees appeared in white apparels.

 

Bayo Bankole (Boy Alinco of PAPA AJASCO fame) administering the ‘initiation’ rite on fresh students of Theatre and Media Arts.

Mojisola Olaiya, who also appeared in a white garb signifying peace in the society, observed a ceremonial purification of the new students by administering them biscuits as oath. Bayo Bankole, acting as the high priest and also clad in white apparel, administered the initiation wherein fresh Theatre and Media Arts students were received as ‘bona fide’ students of the drama department. In the words of the initiation,

 

You are initiated today by the power of those who had trodden this path; I also invoke their sprits to guide and protect you all. Whatever performance you put on, it shall be well with you and you shall excel”.

The ‘High Priest’ urged the students to put in their best in their studies and eschew activities capable of distracting them from the vigorous pursuit oimage 13f their academic careers in the university. He also urged them to be obedient and honest, shunning examination malpractices and other related vices. He stressed that the acting profession is one which, though it’s about entertainment, requires dedication and hard work for one to excel, just as in any other profession.

Present at the occasion were Dean Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Prof. Ojo R. Bakare and some members of staff while older students were also there to observe the ceremony.
