New Olubadan’s coronation set for March 4


The Olubadan-designate, Saliu Adetunji, has confirmed March 4 as the date set aside for his coronation as Olubadan of Ibadanland.

This is contained in a statement signed by Mr. Adetunji’s media aide, Adeola Oloko, and made available to journalists on Sunday in Ibadan.

Mr. Adetunji , according to the statement, confirmed the coronation date during the visit of leading musician, Ebenezer Obey, to his Popoyemoja, Ibadan, residence on Saturday.

He noted that the date was arrived at after extensive consultations with stakeholders.

The Olubadan-designate said the coronation was delayed due to the burial ceremony for the late Olubadan, Samuel Odulana, who he said deserved such a befitting burial.

He said the coronation would take place at Oja’Ba, Ibadan, where his predecessors received their staff of office.

Mr. Adetunji, however, said the venue of the reception billed for Saturday, March 5, would be announced later.

Earlier, Mr. Obey had described Mr. Adetunji as a dependable and reliable pillar in music recording, composition, promotion, advertisement and marketing.

He said nothing would be too much for any musician to do to ensure the success of the Olubadan’s coronation.

Mr. Obey prayed for continued peace, progress and development in Ibadanland under the new monarch.

    I am happy for the Olubadan-designate, Chief Saliu Adetunji, the indomitable force behind Omo Aje Records. In his prime, baba set alight the entertainment scene of the 70s, 80s, and 90s as one of the few indigenous recording label companies. He stood shoulder-to-shoulder along with the likes of Chief Badejo Okusanya and toe-to-toe with Decca Records et al. He put all his resources behind Alhaji Dauda Epo Akara to see to the emergence and survival of Awurebe music which went on to bring joy to socialites in the South West for decades.
    This enthronement is a real fulfilment of covenant of God for baba. May your reign witness unprecedented progress for my beloved Ibadan. Amen.
