And one of the advantages Odunlade has over other candidates is his closeness to the governor of the state. He is also a big star.

    He can become a king and still continue he’s acting and endorsement thing ,just that he will need select certain roles to perform
    Becoming a king is a good thing in Yoruba land. We’ve had obas that are into other profession
