OBA SAHEED ELEGUSHI MULLS 2ND OLORI
According to societyng there is the likelihood of a domestic battle of epic proportions brewing in the ikate palace.
Reports from the online portal indicate the youngest traditional ruler in Lagos and former Jagaban Tinubu protégé Oba Saheed Elegushi of Ikate land popularly known as king ‘gushi’ a shortened version of the Elegushi he presides over is planning to introduce a new Olori into the royal house hold perhaps to ‘help’ the equally youthful Olori Sekinat Aramide nee Bello in the performance of her duties. However it seems Olori sekinat Aramide is not finding it funny and planning to resist this latest development.
For anyone who is familiar with the no nonsense personae of the Olori right from when she was a young girl growing up in Opebi Lagos they will be saying a prayer for the brand new 24 carat Olori coming in unless she is equally tough in which case it will be a 50/50 situation .
Although King ‘Gushi’ by virtue of his position as a traditional ruler and also a Muslim is permitted to marry more than one wife, under social norms culture and tradition he is expected to actually marry more than one wife, he and Olori are childhood sweethearts and have been married for about 10 years with lovely and healthy kids coupled with her emotional and social hold in the palace and life of the Oba it remains to be seen how this will play out. Personally and psychologically (apologies to P-Square) my money is on Olori Sekinat. Culled from http://www.societynowng.com/
