Ojuelegba is a city centre in Surulere local government area of Lagos State. Ojuelegba, one of the busiest places in Lagos, is best known for its crowded setting as depicted in Fela's 1975 Album 'Confusion'.

Ojuelegba is a transport node on the mainland that connects Lagos Island with the city. Besides functioning as a connecting point for commuters, the crossover also provides links to people in Surulere, Yaba and Mushin districts.

Life in Ojuelegba has been immortalized by several musical works, including Fela Kuti's "Confusion" album, Oritse Femi's "Double Wahala" single and Wizkid's "Ojuelegba" single.

In the 80s and 90s, Ojuelegba was popular for its lively night life. It connected merrymaking to Fela Kuti's Moshalashi Shrine on Agege Motor Road and to the Red Light District beginning in Ayilara Street all the way to the parts of Clegg Street.
