First photos from 2016 Ojude Oba Festival

What started as a joyful declaration of Islamic faith in Yorubaland has become a rallying festival for all Ijebu Indigenes in Yorubaland, and all party loving Yoruba in Nigeria. Always held during the Eid holidays, the Ojude Oba festival is a feast of colours , pomp and pageantry. Some of us wait excitedly for Ojude Oba photos and news like Europeans wait for Christmas. This 100 year old festival is non Traditional but so  highly celebrated  it has become something of a tradition for Ijebus and their fellow Yoruba kin.

Though it rained chickens and goats 🙂 this year, nothing could stand in the way of the celebrants and their king!

Here are the first photos on the internet:
