NAIJ.com has obtained pictures of the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, as a vibrant young man, way before he became a highly revered traditional ruler and the guardian of Yoruba traditional culture and heritage.
Years before he became one of the most revered traditional rulers in Nigeria, the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, was a youth in every way.
The man who currently sits on the most revered throne in Yorubaland, was and still is a dashing young man, as his throwback photos can prove.
Oba Ogunwusi seemed to be a ladies favourite, as in all the photos, he was smiling while he posed with equally beautiful ladies.
One thing is clear in all the pictures both past and present, he never fails to wear his signature smile.
The photos were shared by a Facebook user who said:
