The ancient and historical town of Ile-Ife, Osun State will witness the massive influx of mammoth crowd of family, friends, business associates and society czars who will be honouring the grand installation of Princess Dr. Toyin Kolade as the Iyalaje Oodua in General by His Imperial Majesty Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi (Ojaja II), the Ooni of Ife.
The event will take place right inside the exalted palace of the Ooni in Ile-Oodua, Enuwa Ile-Ife.
It is a matter of fact that she has single-handedly promoted the image of the Aje Festival, annually held in Ile-Ife amidst her other financial and moral support of other traditional and cultural events both within the country and outside.
Princess Toyin Kolade, it could be recalled has taken the cultural pedigree of the Yoruba race to international stardom, opening up a befitting space for the race amongst other comity of nations with cultural values and esteem. She is nevertheless a cultural icon and ambassador per excellence.
We also gathered that, practically all hotels, suites and resort centres in Ile-Ife have been scheduled to accommodate guests and well-wishers who will be gracing the occasion.
Also at our disposal is the fact that many artistes, traditional/cultural groups and other entertainers have been contracted to perform during and after the event, most popular of who are the King of Fuji Music, K1 De Ultimate and Gospel Tungba maestro Yinka Ayefele.
No doubt, the installation event of Princess Toyin Kolade is expected to shake not only the entire Yoruba land but Nigeria in general
