Ooni crowns Oba Kayode Afolabi as Alapomu of Apomu - ITREALMS

The Ooni of Ife on February 7, 2020 crowned Oba Kayode Adenekan Afolabi as the new king of Apomu, reports ITREALMS

Speaking during the installation, Oba Ogunwusi described Apomu as a very important part of Yorubaland with Ile-Ife as its source.

“This town remains a very important part of the Oduduwa’s territory, not only because it’s a direct creation of Ile-Ife but also for the strategic roles Apomu played in the past," he said.

ITREALMS gathered that the ceremony attracted special guest of honour, Alaafin of Oyo, Olofa of Offa, Oluwo of Iwo, Alakire of Ikire and over twenty other monarch. 

Also present were Osun State first lady, Mrs Kafayat Oyetola, deputy governor of Osun State, Benedict Gboyega Alabi and his wife. 

Equally many commissioners witnessed the presentation of the staff of office, among them were; commissioners of finance, information and youth and sports.

The majority leader of the Osun state house of assembly, Jibola Olanrewaju "Larry J" who led other members of the state house of assembly expressed his joy on the occasion.

Oba Afolabi said he is a direct descendant of the Giesi Ruling House of Ile-Ife.

“Some people might wonder about my style of dressing here today, it is deliberate to show my roots as my father came from Ile-Ife to settle down in Apomu many centuries ago,” he said.

The event ended with a live performance by Wasiu Ayinde "K1 the ultimate", who thrilled guests at the occasion.
