Mahamat "Baba" Moustapha (1952-1982) was a Chadian playwright writing in French. His plays include Le Maitre des Djinns, Le Souffle de l'Harmattan and Makarie aux Épines. His posthumously published play Commandant Chaka (1983), a denunciation of military dictatorships, is considered to be his finest work. He is the namesake of the Association Artistique et Culturelle - Théâtre Vivant Baba Moustapha (ACT-TVBM), a theater company.
