Yusuf Olatunji, also known as Baba Legba or Baba L’Egbaa (1909-1978), was a Nigerian Sakara drum player, who popularized the sakara music style. He was purportedly born in 1909 in a village called Gbegbinlawo in Ogun State in south-western Nigeria, although there are still doubts about the location of his birth. His mid-life conversion to Islam boosted his career in Yoruba music. He was born a Christian and he hailed from Iseyin in Oyo State. He was formerly known as Joseph Olatunji.
He died in December 15, 1978. He is survived by 4 children and 14 wives.
