Popular Lagos monarch, Oba Saheed Ademola Elegushi, Kusenla 111, the Elegushi of Ikateland is excited about today May 24.
It is their 17th wedding anniversary and King Gushi, who is the youngest king in Lagos is set to celebrate Olori Sekinat Aramide.
Already, he has started sharing their throwback wedding photos on social media and attaching lovely captions:
He wrote,“On the 24th of May 2003, I got married to my darling Queen Sekinat Elegushi making it 17th years today. “
Again, he wrote, “Which of the favours of Allah shall we deny? (Quran 55 vs 13). 17 years ago, when we started this journey, it was with mixed feelings; one, there was love, true love that existed between us; secondly, the anxiety that comes with two young minds deciding to live as one.
From our humble and modest beginning, we’ve come this far and gotten better and proven to the world that ours is an inimitable choice.
Join me in thanking my Olori for all she has been. I thank you for our amazing Angels; I thank you for the peace; I thank you for the love; I thank you for bringing finesse, panache and reverence to this Stool and the kingdom; I thank you for your firm belief in our collective dream.
Only you could have started and steered this ship.
I pray Almighty Allah will continue to keep us safe in love, sound in good health and successful in all our affairs, till forever.
Happy Anniversary to us.
Oba Elegushi and Oloori Aramide are childhood sweethearts. They met during their undergraduate days in Lagos. The bond they shared was so strong back then that their friends knew that it would result into marriage. 17 years down the line, the bond keeps waxing stronger and the couple seems determined to maintain that tempo of love. The union is blessed with three children.
Oloori Aramide is a graduate of Accountancy from the University of Lagos. She runs a chain of business enterprises, which encompasses grocery, boutique, household wares and beauty salon.
Blessed with an ebullient nature and warm and humble dispositions, Oloori Aramide has gradually built an enviable reputation as one of the most stylish queens in Nigeria. She always stands out whenever she steps out at an event.
How did she meet her husband?
The queen replied:
“It was during the holiday and I was at my mother’s shop on the Island. My mum sells fabrics on the island and he came to see his friends. Then he was an undergraduate at the Lagos State University while I was also studying at the University of Lagos.”
