Abike Jagaban, the alleged lover of the Ooni of Ife, has issued a public service announcement.
The Yeye Bewaji of Itori drew everyone’s attention at a recent event when she stepped out in style with the Ooni’s staff.
This sparked outrage on social media, with many criticising the monarch for not respecting his staff.
Ooni’s lover, Abike Jagaban
Following the event, many have been describing her as the next queen of Ife.
In what seems to be a reaction to the controversy, Abike sent a message to the public.
She stated that she wants to be addressed as her parents christened her and not with any Instagram-imposed title of a Queen in waiting.
She, however, stated that the name and title is subject to change, but that will be in future.
“As of this day my name remains Toluwatope Olowogaba the Yeye Bewaji of Itori Land, aka QAJ the founder of theNo Cyberbullying Team, the founder of Abike Jagaban Helping Hands Foundation, the CEO of AJ Trendy Z Store the CEO.kf Abike Jagaban Events n Parties and Queen of Lovers of Cyber Freedom and Peace and I would like to be addressed with the above names and no other until further notice.
Love all the way”.
Ooni’s staff steal show at alleged lover’s party
Over the weekend, Abike Jagaban, who had been alleged to be intimately close to the Ooni of Ife, was seen at a social gathering in Lagos where she was escorted by the Ooni of Ife’s staff of office.
Kemi Filani gathered that the occasion was actually her grandmother’s burial and a reception was held after at an event centre with the Ooni of Ife’s staff being used as an escort.
Immediately Abike, who is the Yeye Bewaji of Itoriland strolled in, a palace guard with the Ooni of Ife’s staff of the office was seen following her everywhere.
Well, this could have slipped without mention from some guests but lately, the staff of the office of the Ooni of Ife has been present at five weddings of his queens without the monarch’s presence.
But the beautiful blogger seemed not bothered and went about the party with the staff of the office carried by an escort.
“The staff of the office of the king represents him and could be at anyone’s party as long as it’s the king’s emissary carrying it. It’s a mark of honour and Abike is no stranger to the palace. If the king or anyone from Ile Ife couldn’t attend the party physically, the staff of the office would honour the invite. Nobody should place any unusual meaning to the office staff at Abike Jagaban’s party,” palace sources revealed to Kemi Ashefon.
