Popular Lagos monarch, Oba Saheed Ademola Elegushi, Kusenla III, the Oba Elegushi of Ikateland is celebrating 10 years anniversary as a King. The king who is known for his unique style and carriage has set himself apart from other monarchs in the world.
His Royal Majesty who is the 21st Monarch of Ikate-Elegushi was born on 10th of April 1976, into the royal Elegushi family, from Kusenla ruling house of Ikateland, Lagos State. He was, at the time, the youngest monarch in Lagos state at 34 years.
The 44 year old took to Instagram to celebrate this day with the caption “Today is a day of thanksgiving; a day of songs of praises and a day of gratitude. On this day, ten years ago, what seems like an impossible journey started, I had faith, I had courage and most importantly, we have uncommon grace. So join me, as I celebrate the 10th Year Anniversary of my coronation as the Elegushi of Ikate Kingdom. We look forward to greater heights but we are not unmindful of our modest achievement these past ten years. To God indeed be the Glory. Peace and development is a continuous process for us.
The Master’s Degree-holder from the Manchester University, prior to his coronation, served in the Lagos state government as a Senior Special Assistant in-charge of Special duties.
The admirable Oba who has a preference for dark shades likes hanging out at the most elite parts of Lagos with top celebrities and movers and shakers in the Lagos metropolis. Most times, he is spotted in public with neat Yoruba traditional wears and shoes and cap to match.
