Who is Lagbaja, and why does he wear a mask?

Lagbaja’s real name is Bisade Ologunde. He is a legendary Nigerian musician who sings and plays the saxophone with a mask on. His true identity has never been revealed, despite many speculations and pictures online.

Lagbaja’s name itself embodies mystery. It means “nobody,” “faceless one,” or “anonymous,” reflecting his enigmatic persona. He performs with his face masked.This secrecy fueled speculation about his true identity.

Born in 1960 in Nigeria’s Oyun local government area (Kwara State), Lagbaja comes from a Baptist background. He was raised by a Baptist deacon father (Deacon D. A. Olugunde, who passed away in 2012), details about his early life remain largely private. We do know he attended Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife.

In 2013, she got married to Olamide Obilana in Lagos, Nigeria. Lagbaja attended the wedding without his mask; visitors were not allowed to take pictures.

It is believed that Lagbaja now lives in New York with this family.
