The 2024 Ojude Oba festival, held in Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State, once again showcased the rich cultural heritage of the Ijebu people.

Ojude Oba, meaning “king’s forecourt” in Yoruba, is a renowned annual festival celebrated a few days after the Muslim Sallah festivities.

This year’s theme, “Ojude Oba: Unity and Harmony, Our Gift,” captured the essence of the event, bringing together people from all walks of life to honour the king, famous as the Awujale and celebrate Ijebu traditions.

It is a grand display of respect for the Awujale, His Royal Majesty, Oba Sikiru Adetona (Gbadebo II), Nigeria’s longest-reigning monarch.

The festival honours the past and inspires future generations to cherish and uphold their heritage.

This year’s festival drew notable figures from across the nation.

Among the distinguished attendees were Ogun State Governor Dapo Abiodun, Deputy Governor Noimot Salako-Oyedele, former governors, Olusegun Osoba and Senator, Gbenga Daniel, Shuib Salis, Speaker of the State House of Assembly Daisi Elemide, and other dignitaries.

The presence of these high-profile individuals underscored the festival’s importance in the Nigerian cultural calendar.

A significant festival highlight was the parade of various age-grade sets, known as ‘Regberegbes,’ and descendants of prominent Ijebu Ode Baloguns. Groups including Balogun Odunuga, Balogun Kuku, Balogun Agboola Alausa, Balogun Alatishe, Balogun Otubu, and Balogun Adesoye showcased their exceptional horsemanship as they marched and charged on their horses, paying homage to the King.

Recognising its cultural significance, the Minister of Culture, Art, and Creative Economy, Hannatu Musa-Musawa, announced plans to list the Ojude Oba festival as an event approved and supported by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO).
