An Ọba’s crown is not only the most important object in royal Yoruba regalia but also represents the peak level of the authority vested in Yoruba rulers.
His Imperial Majesty, Ọba AbdulRọsheed Adewale Akanbi Telu I, has redefined the face of the Oluwo’s crown from the ‘Ade Ilẹkẹ’ (beaded crown).
The redefined crown of Oluwo of Iwoland is made of amazing elements, among them are;
– Precious Stones
– Swarovski Crystals
– And others
????? ????: “My Forefathers wrote history by making their Crowns with beads and I start my own history by making mine with Precious Stones, Rubis, Lapis, Swarovski Crystals, etc.”
“I must be greater than my Fathers and my Children must be greater than me,” he concluded.
