Like previous editions that have held in the past, the 2019 celebration of the Ojude-Oba festival was filled with a lot of color, vigor and a robust display of the rich cultural heritage abound in Nigeria.
The popular Yoruba festival which takes place in Ijebu-Ode, a town in Ogun state, witnessed several dignitaries from different parts of the country, that all came together to celebrate African culture.
Ojude-Oba is held yearly two days after the Eid-el-Kabir celebrations, as an age-old tradition of Ijebu indigenes in honour of the town’s monarch.
Different age-grade groups, known as the “Regberegbe”, attend in different colourful outfits, bearing gifts for the Awujale, who is often times the head sponsor of the festival, along with indigenes, individuals and some corporate organizations.
