November Outings with the Olowu


Saturday 5th November, 2011: Wedding at the Country Club , Ikeja.

The church event took place at the All Saints Anglican Church, Mabayoje Street, Oshodi where the couple were solemnized. A nephew of Oba Adegboyega Dosunmu, the Olowu of Owu was the groom.*

Afterwards the troop moved to the Country Club on Mobolaji Bank Anthony way at Ikeja for a lavish reception for the couple where the Olowu delivered the keynote address and displaced the humorous side of a monarch.

Incidentally it was also on this day that Kabiyesi hinted Owulakoda about the Owu Falls in Kwara State (see article).

*Thanks for the correction, Abiodun.


.Friday 11th November, 2011: Amororo Funeral

A funeral party of a member of the Amororo ruling family. An elderly brother of the Olowu was laid to rest with reception held at an exquisite hotel off Quarry Road in Abeokuta.

In attendance was Chief Bolu Akin-Olugbade, the Aare Ona Kakanfo of Owu Kingdom and Chairman of the Owu Palace Project Execution Committee (PEC) with members of his team who had earlier held a brief meeting at the palace before proceeding to the event venue.


Saturday 19th November, 2011: Royal Wedding at Oregun.

The unorthodox Daystar Christian Centre at Oregun near Ikeja in Lagos was the venue of the solemnization of this wedding of the royal daughter.

The reception took place at the Darlington Hall in Ilupeju where the full compliment of Owu chiefs graced the occasion of the wedlock of the daughter of their monarch.

2 days earlier on Thursday 17th of November at Bishopscourt in Onikolobo, Abeokuta, the couple had tied the nuptial cord of their traditional wedding under an equally larvishly adorned social hall setting.
