For the typical African monarch who has taken more than one queen, maintaining order and harmony in the royal household often proves a herculean task. They often end up abandoning the home front to their squabbling queens while finding hollow succour in the mundane task of ruling their kingdoms.
Not so the Osile of Oke Ona, Oba Adedapo Adewale Tejuoso, who has somehow managed to create an atmosphere of amity and camaraderie between his three queens, Olori Omolara, Olori Yetunde and Olori Olabisi, so much so that rather than being at one another’s throats, the three are often seen attending events together,attired in stylish outfits befitting the consorts of royalty and posing for group photographs.
Recently, the second wife of the medical doctor-turned-monarch, Olori Yewande Olufunmilayo Tejuoso, turned 60, and a thanksgiving service was held at the Cathedral of Saint James African Church, Idi Ape, Ago Oko, Abeokuta, Ogun State, to mark the occasion. This was followed by a reception service during which Evangelist Ebenezer Obey and Demola Olota exhibited their musical prowess to the delight of the crowd.
The grand reception, which held at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library Marquee, Oke Mosan, had ace MC Tunde Adewale (Tee A) and Dr Smile as comperes. The two other Oloris were out in full force to support their fellow wife at event.
