The super rich and quite handsome monarch, said to be one of the youngest royal fathers in Nigeria, who reigns over the vast IKATELAND, the debonair Lagos monarch, Oba Saheed Elegushi, officially married his second wife, Hadiza Tanko, in Yankaba, Kano State, May 3rd. Drop-dead gorgeous and light-skinned, Hadiza works in an oil and gas firm and has reportedly been warming the heart of the young monarch for a few years especially whenever the stress of monarchy and business become overwhelming.

Though sources at the palace have not categorically confirmed the disposition of the King’s first wife, Olori Aramide Sekinat, obviously, it should not have come to her as much surprise because he is a king and polygamy comes with the terrain.

The shock, for her, close friends say, is that she and the king were high school lovers and being so cosmopolitan and young, polygamy, perhaps, shouldn’t have occurred. But she thought wrong. Married in 2003 at a colourful ceremony that had two of Nigeria’s biggest musicians, King Sunny Ade and K1 De Ultimate, on the bandstands, they are blessed with three adorable daughters.

But as it is constant with everything in life, change occurred. While Olori Aramide is still her beautiful self, her utopian role as the woman who titillates and tends to every need of the handsome monarch; the woman who ensures that the royal libido never lacks attention and excitement, has not dwindled. But, so besotted with the new Olori that Elegushi doesn’t let her out of his sight for too long else he would be lovelorn and forlorn.

In his early 40s, the Elegushi of Ikateland ranks as one of the youngest traditional rulers in the country. A graduate of the Lagos State University, he was a former personal assistant to the former governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

He also worked with former Governor Babatunde Raji Fashola before resigning in 2010 after it became apparent he would succeed his father as king of one of the largest and most exclusive communities in Lagos.
