Babajide Akingbade was an African wizard and Uagadou graduate who succeeded Albus Dumbledore as the Supreme Mugwump of the International Confederation of Wizards[2] in 1995, when the latter was voted out by British Ministry wizards after he made a speech announcing Lord Voldemort's return.[3]


Babajide came from a Yoruba word "baba" meaning "father" and "dziade" meaning "raise from the dead." Babajide means "father has come to life again" or "father has returned."


Notes and references

  1. He had graduated from Uagadou by 1995. As shown in Wonderbook: Book of Potions, students still attend it at age 17. Meaning Babajude must have been 17 or older in 1995.
  2. Writing by J.K. Rowling: "Uagadou" at Pottermore
  3. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Chapter 5 (The Order of the Phoenix)
