A UK-based Nigerian, Olamide Aiyeola, recently unveiled a multi-million naira house with a grand housewarming party on Saturday December, 24, 2022.
And being a traditionalist himself, the event was officiated by the world-famous Ifa priest, Ifáyẹmi Ọ̀ṣundàgbónu Elebuibon, who prayed fervently for the celebrant while quoting verses from the Ifa corpus.
It is worth noting that Ifa refers to the mystical figure Ifa or Orunmila, regarded by the Yoruba as the deity of wisdom and intellectual development.
The house warming ceremony was submerged in different interesting activities with lots to eat and drink, while Egungun masquerades also performed to the delight of the guests.
Aside from respected Elebuibon, other known guests present included the Nigeria’s legendary Esa Oriki Orile exponent, Sulaiman Ayilara Aremu Ajobiewe, who continuously waxed Aiyeola’s eulogy during his performance; Ifakem Adeshina, the Likotun Remo & Gambari Orunmila; Oluwo Tajudeen Abubakar (Ajamajebi), Ọba Ogboni Abalaye and several others.
Some of his old classmates from African Church Grammar School, Ogun State, with some other friends also presented him with a customised life-size congratulatory frame. They were Akinmade Adeleke Kamal, Adegbenro Muiz Adeniji, Ojelabi Dimeji, Adegbokiki Kamor and Solanke Seun.
The Ologboni Aiyeola was full of appreciation to God and contentment as he celebrated his latest achievement with families, friends and close relations.
He was especially happy that his mother and grandmother, Moriamo Adewunmi Aiyeola and Simiatu Ayoka Akinremi respectively, are still alive to witness his success.
Music was supplied by UK-based Sunny Melody, while Bash the comedian was the master of ceremony and the popular media group, Freelart Limited, covered the event.
