The palace of God is always whetted with things of joy, and that is why in the palace of the Elegushis, there are good news and merriment in the air. The charismatic and very avant-garde monarch of Ikateland in Lagos State, HRH, Oba Saheed Elegushi, was really in a rare mood as he celebrated his darling wife, Olori, Aramide Sekinat, as she clocked 43, today; Sunday 10th of November.
The effervescent monarch and his stylish wife opted to keep this year’s celebration a low-key affair. Celebrating the woman who means the world to him, Oba Elegushi shared pictures of his wife on his Instagram page, with the following words,“Birthdays may come and go, but a wife like you is one in a million. I feel so blessed to have such a beautiful and supportive life partner like you, sweetheart! I’m glad that I was able to find someone as perfect as you. My love and respect for you will never fade. I wish you true happiness on your birthday today and always my Queen, Olori Sekinat Aramide Elegushi. Happy Birthday my love.”
The goodness of any man is always noticed when he is celebrating a milestone, and to be successfully married for years is not an ordinary achievement; in this age of broken marriages among celebrities, but like Oba Saheed Ademola Elegushi, Kusenla III, the Elegushi of Ikateland, and his beautiful, stylish and drop-dead gorgeous wife, Olori Sekinat Aramide (nee Ipaye,) it’s been 16 years since Nigeria’s most effervescent monarch, King Guchi got married to his wife, and the couple claims that they had never been happier.
To prove their resilient and abiding love for each other, the joyous couple recently celebrated their 16 years of fulfilling wedlock in a high-octane soiree. Friends and family unanimously acknowledged one indisputable fact, that theirs is certainly a love willed in heaven and actualized on earth, a love established and perpetuated enviably and splendidly to the pleasure of parties involved, all to the admiration of all and sundry in attendance.
The effect journeyed with him from adolescence through adulthood. In the magical and very exclusive circuit of their love, every happenstance has been a wonderful experience.
The big things and little things matter all the same. It was indeed love in the air for the Eleghusis and they have every cause to celebrate their marriage of 16 blissful years. In many ways, King Guchi’s love could indeed be likened to an olive tree; and that is because nothing could be more representative of their love than a beautiful, strong tree.
The royal couple met during their undergraduate days in LASU as childhood sweethearts. The bond they shared was so strong back then that their friends knew that it would result into marriage. 16 years down the lane, the bond keeps waxing stronger and the couple seems determined to maintain that tempo of love. The union is blessed with three lovely children.
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 state nay 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.
