Being a Millennial, I have never had an experience living under the rule of traditional leadership, so forgive me when i say i never thought much of Traditional rulers (Royalties). But this single experience with the new Ooni of Ife ‘Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi Ojaja II’ gave me a paradigm shift about traditional leadership.
As a photographer, i was overwhelmed with the different details about this royalty i had to photograph to properly tell the royalty story ***It was crazy***. I was all over the place (I am sure the palace guards were tempted to send me out). From his shoes (sorry i couldn’t get so close to capture the details on the shoe) to his septa to his throne and infact everything spoke royalty. Since this experience i have followed him closely through social media tho, and i can say his leadership in Ife is transforming a lot of things already. So from me I say; Kabiyesi O, Ki Ade pe lori, ki bata pe lese (Yoruba chant: Long live the king). #RoyaltySeries
