The Ojude Oba festival, sponsored by Glo, took place in Ijebu Ode, Ogun State, on Tuesday, and it was a fun-filled event.

As was to be expected, the telecoms firm decorated the area with lush vegetation, and the many Regberegbes (age grade groups) looked stunning in their vibrant costumes and magnificent performances as they fought for the awards.

As one of the main reasons Globacom sponsored the festival, Egbe Bobasete Okunrin Omooba won the best dressed age group competition, and the male category’s first and second runners-up were Egbe Bobagunte Okunrin Akile Ijebu and Egbe Bobamayegun Okunrin Asiwaju.

In the female category, Egbe Bobagunwa Obinrin Omooba came first with Egbe Bobagunwa Obinrin Asiwaju and Egbe Arobayo Obinrin Akile Ijebu emerging as runners-up, winning the same prizes as their male counterparts.

Earlier in his goodwill message, Globacom Chairman, Dr. Mike Adenuga, Jr., stated that Ojude Oba and other age-long festivals in the country have huge potential to promote cultural diversification, national identity, harmony and unity.

He also noted that the festivals could foster cultural exchange and showcase Nigeria’s rich heritage to the world.

Dr Adenuga observed that the theme of this year’s celebration, UNITY AND HARMONY IN IJEBULAND: THE GIFT OF OJUDE OBA, emphasised the  values that the festival had espoused for over a century that it has been in existence.

He added that the festivals also had potential to boost tourism and help in the diversification of the economy which was why the Federal Government and many governments across the globe have placed tourism on top of their development agenda.
