Elemdeeliving had an exclusive photoshoot and interview with the Ooni of Ife, His Imperial Majesty Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi. The revered king talks about his style and ruling the historic city of Ile-Ife at quite a young age for a monarch.
He poses up a storm while talking about life as a King, what he gets up to daily in the palace, his regrets and so on.
See Excerpts from the interview below:
Q- You’re quite the stylish King, understated yet regal. Who picks out your outfits?
A- That’s who I am. I like to look good, stylish and different in everything I do and that reflects in my unique style and the way I dress.
Q- You’ve managed to make colorful embellished staff and crown standout details in your outfits, what’s the idea? How many do you have?
A-I have quite a lot and they are all made here in Nigeria. I plan to put them up for an exhibition later on in life as a reminder of our tradition, the tradition of ile-ife.
Q-How has been an Ooni Changed you?
A-I am more guarded, there are things I can’t do, there are a lot of dos and don’ts! I must be the number one cultural ambassador. I have regulations that have to be in tune with tradition.
