There are kings and there are kings; but His Royal Majesty, Oba Saheed Ademola Elegushi (Kusenla III), the Elegushi of Ikateland, cannot be ruled out in the comity of royalty.
Last Tuesday, April 10, 2018, the youthful and amiable King of Ikateland, added a year, and even more glorious years on the throne of his forefathers. Rather than host an elaborate party, Oba Elegushi stylishly extricated self from any form of elaborate celebration. Over the years, the profile of Oba Elegushi, who is regarded as Nigeria’s most effervescent royal father, has been on the rise. He has emerged as one of the most influential monarchs in the country as well, just going about his traditional roles without let or hindrance. He is reported to have strongly influenced the emergence of many corporate bosses in Yoruba land. Oba Saheed is married to the beautiful and stylish Olori Sekinat Aramide Elegushi (nee Ipaye) and they are blessed with three children. Oba Saheed Elegushi is so versatile and dynamic in the Lagos political, social and economic circuits, but he does not hang any hairs around himself, for reasons of his upbringing and orientation; which are not too far from humility and morality.
