Videos and photos from the coronation have since been shared on the page and they captured moments of the Prince Tsola - heavily donned in royal regalia - being crowned in the presence of dignitaries.
The photos were accompanied with a speech for the king and it reads:
"On this day, God decided He was going to put the crown on the ONE fit for the throne...On the ONE who will lead His people. On the ONE who will bear the people on his shoulder lest they dash their foot against a stone...Lest they be worried about the protection of values and safety...On the ONE who will change the narrative.. On this day He shall sit...The oil shall be poured and it shall flow into our hearts! And He will be like a tree planted by the river that bears fruits and will never wither...And we shall scream..."There he is, our delight"...The hour is close, He no longer arrives! He is here!"
The Olu Designate proceeded into the traditional Isolation period in May 2021, shortly after rites of passage for the late monarch, His Majesty, Ogiame Ikenwoli, held at the Royal Cemetery in Jalla, Warri South Local Government Area.
