His Royal Majesty, Ademola Saheed Elegushi has taken to Instagram to celebrate his first wife, Olori Sekinat on their 17th wedding anniversary. Sharing throwback pictures from their wedding in 2003, the monarch revealed that his marriage to the queen came with mixed feelings.
He used the medium to thank her for giving him peace of mind and showing him love all through the years.
Read all he said below;
“Which of the favours of Allah shall we deny? (Quran 55 vs 13)
17years ago, when we started this journey, it was with mixed feelings; one, there was love, true love that existed between us; secondly, the anxiety that comes with two young minds deciding to live as one.
From our humble and modest beginning, we’ve come this far and gotten better and proven to the world that ours is an inimitable choice.
Join me in thanking my Olori for all she has been. I thank you for our amazing Angels; I thank you for the peace; I thank you for the love; I thank you for bringing finesse, panache and reverence to this Stool and the kingdom; I thank you for your firm belief in our collective dream.
Only you could have started and steered this ship.
I pray Almighty Allah will continue to keep us safe in love, sound in good health and successful in all our affairs, till forever.
Happy Anniversary to us.”
Recall that about a ywar ago, the royal couple who God blessed with three beautiful daughters were suspected to be having marital crisis after her husband, King Ademola decided to marry another wife.
A close source however revealed that Olori Sekinat is a happy woman and does not see Hadiza like a rival, they relate like sisters. “Initially, Olori Sekinat was heartbroken and battered but as we speak, she has accepted everything in good faith and gotten over the marriage issue. Oba Elegushi has not relented in his job as a unifier.
“Oba Saheed Ademola Elegushi has been able to manage the two wives successfully and he also promised to give Olori Sekinat maximum attention and shower her with more love” the source further added.
