Olugbo of Ugboland, Oba Fedrick Akinruntan Holds Classy Wedding For His Daughter, Princess Omobolanle

It was a truly royal wedding on Saturday 12th February 2022, when Princess Omobolanle Akinruntan, the beautiful daughter of His Imperial Majesty, Oba (Dr) Frederick Obateru Akinruntan (CON), the Olugbo of Ugboland, Ilaje LGA, Ondo, got married to Olaniyi Makinde, the son of Chief John Oladipo Makinde.

 Osborne Foreshore Recreational Centre in Ikoyi, Lagos was the set venue for the stunning Ondo Princess and her heartthrob. The hall was decorated by leading event planner, Adebimpe Suleman, the C.E.O of Norwood events and her crew. The entrance of the hall had huge portraits of the couple, creating an elegant walkway. The beautiful work done with flowers and petals gave away for breathtaking photo sessions. The main hall was filled with black and gold props and sets, giving it a relaxing feeling. The ceiling had a beautiful chandelier themed with wedding bands and all nuptial glamour.    

 Vendors like Pantry Signature and the band Menthol Kay the great had strategic places in the hall. The hall was a room filled with the feeling of love.

The event started with the entrance of Chief Oladipo Makinde and Mrs. Abosede Makinde, the groom's parents. Other guests began to flood the hall dressed in sky blue and pink Aso Ebi adding more glamour to the hall.

As guests began to fill up the hall, a mix of music and chants was heard outside the hall. Guests rushed to enjoy the beautiful entrance of the bride's father, Oba Fedrick Akinruntan, who is a king with Class. Being the Imperial leader, Olugbo of Ugboland, Ondo, had his outing throne placed in the hall. It was a golden-rimmed chair with a comfortable red cushion. The staff bearer sat at the foot of the throne as he awaited the King's presence.

 Some moments later Oba Fedrick Akinruntan, Okoro Ajiga 1, the Olugbo of Ugboland Ondo stepped in with his Oloris, Olori Yetunde Akinruntan, Yeyeluwa Olori Stella Iyabode Akinruntan and his entourage.

 The whole affair had trumpets, drums and songs playing in the air. The Royal high Chiefs formed a trail behind the Oba. The Oba was dressed in a flowing white Agbada, his royal bead dancing on his chest with his royal crown shimmering in the sun. After taking his seat, the party was officially started. With this, Otunba Adeyemi, the CP to His Imperial Majesty, Oba Fedrick Akinruntan, took the stage to share a brief history of the Great Ilaje Ugbo Kingdom. He later took the time to recognise the high chiefs present, out of the 72 High Chiefs familiar to the Ugbo Kingdom. They included High Chief Raphel, High Chief  Felix, High Chief Soji Aladetan, High Chief Omodun, High Chief Akingboye Godbless, High Chief John Fagbiyi and High Chief Prince Adejugba.

The bride drove into the venue in a G Wagon, while the groom drove in a Highlander jeep. The groom, Olaniyi Makinde, was the first to step out, dressed in a purple Aso Oke agbada, alongside his friends.

 Amoke Alaga swung into action directing the groom till he was well seated at the stage, waiting for his bride's entrance.

Finally, Princess Bolanle Akinruntan, the Princess of Olugboland gracefully danced into the hall alongside her friends dressed in a matching outfit, as her husband. Pastor Ituah Ighodalo was then given the medium to pronounce prayers on the new couple.

 After exchanging the rings, they were both pronounced man and wife with a lot of cheers and prayers. As the event rolled by, His Imperial Majesty Oba Saheed Ademola Elegushi stepped in with his right-hand man, the Akinshiku of Lagos and over 5 of his high chiefs and entourage.

The engagement party swung into full gear as the new couple danced in their party outfit. MC Ajele immediately ushered them to the dance floor to share their first dance. After this, Mentholkay the Great and his crew set the dance groove on as Oba Fedrick Akinruntan left the party with his Oloris.

 Love indeed is a beautiful thing.
