Ooni Adeyeye Ogunwusi

No one appreciates custom and tradition like its custodians.

This explains the import of Olojo Day, a global celebration of the first dusk and dawn to the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi.

Having gone into seclusion in anticipation of the 2019 edition of the event which holds today, his emergence adorning the sacred Are crown worn exclusively by the Ooni of Ife once in a year is with blessings and prayers of goodwill to both the indigenes of Ife Kingdom and Nigerians in general.

A day said to be specially blessed by the creator of the Universe, Olojo Day is popular for attracting influential dignitaries and tourists from far and wide.

Notable for its colourful events, today’s celebration will encompass programmes such as a culture-based workshop for youths, a football competition, traditional games, fashion show and a traditional music night.
