•Becomes Yeye AROBAKE Of IBALAND In OSUN State
The sleepy town of Ibaland in Osun State came alive on Friday 22nd December, 2017 when the Eburu of Iba, Prof. Adekunle Adeogun Okunoye, honoured popular Lagos society woman, Yeye Adejoke Moyosade Ojo with the Yeye Arobake of Ibaland title. She, her family members and friends stormed the town in large numbers from all parts of the country to honour her.
It was a colourful event as the Kabiyeesi who was Yeye Ojo’s classmate at the College of Education, Ila Orangun led his chiefs, friends and well wishers to honour this pretty woman. Oloori Abidemi Okunoye was there, so also very eminent personalities like Eng. Remi Alao (who came in from the UK), Rev. Bunmi Jenyo (PDP Zonal Secretary South West), Princess Toyin Kolade, Chief Bola Oriowo (Sarun of Ile-Ife), Alhaji Dele Shittu (Harivest Motors), Oloori Titilayo Famudu (wife of Osun State APC Chairman), Oloori Olasumbo (wife of Kabiyeesi of Iragbiji), Kabiyeesi Alapa of Apaland, Eyesorun of Ewi Ado, Oloori Abosede Adejugbe, Oba Adelola Fagbamila (the Olootunja of Otunja in Ikole LG).
Also in attendance was the new Yeye’s husband Prince James Funsho Ojo. He is a Prince from Otunja. Kabiyeesi, the Alaworoko of Iworoko came and also Olori Aladejana. Chief Mohammed Tairu Amusa, the Chairman OMAT Group of Schools, Ikorodu also came.

There was also Toyin Bamisale Oni of LTV 8.
Many alumni of the Oyo State College of Education, Ila Orangun came in huge number since both Kabiyeesi and the lady of the day (Yeye Ojo) are alumnus of the school.

The new Yeye Arobake dazzled everyone at the event that day as she looked sweet in her ensemble from head to toe. Many noticed her lovely Palmeri Shoes from Naples in Italy. The King of Ibaland decided to honour Yeye Adejoke Moyosade Ojo because of her selfless service to humanity. They were schoolmate at Oyo State College of Education, Ila Orangun in those good old days. That was why a lot of their classmates stormed the event. It was a reunion of sorts.
