Ogunrombi gained notoriety for his performance in the comedy film Papa Ajasco, a Nigerian family television sitcom.

 

The story centred around the Ajasco family and their comedic interpretations of major societal issues. The main characters include womanising patriarch Papa Ajasco, his long-suffering wife Mama Ajasco, their mischievous son Bobo Ajasco, local playboy Boy Alinco, promiscuous gold-digger Miss Pepeiye, and illiterate ne’er-do-wells Pa James and Pa Jimoh.
