Nollywood actor and movie producer, Omogoriola Hassan, has been crowned as the Oba of Uba land, Imobi Kingdom, Ogun State.
The actor, who was previously installed as an Oba-elect of the land, was crowned after the oracle of the land confirmed him as the chosen one.
The actor took to his official Instagram handle to share the news alongside a video capturing the moment the King makers of the land made an Ifa consultation to ascertain if he was the chosen one.
“The office of an Ọba in Yoruba land is an hereditary office that is maintained by Royal families,” he wrote.
According to him, the consultation became necessary as many have now resorted to using money and influence to snag traditional titles.
In his words: “The office of an Ọba in Yoruba land is an hereditary office that is maintained by Royal families, but in order to be the one that is confirmed as an Ọba the chief priest and the town elders would perform an IFA consultation to confirm if they have the right person because many use influence and money to attain this sacred office.”
In the video, the new monarch alongside other chiefs gathered around a high priest who made a consultation to the oracle.
The monarch also expressed his happiness after the consultation with the oracle confirmed him as the one true king of the land.
He expressed gratitude to the Lord, friends and family who have been with him on the journey so far.
