ENTERTAINMENT, EVENTS - August 10, 2021

Alhaji Mufutau Oloyede Okikiola Gbadamosi, is an illustrious son of Offa, an ancient Yoruba town in Kwara State.

An astute and skillful businessman, administrator, visionary and energetic youngman whose patriotic virtue brought to limelight in his community.

Mufutau Gbadamosi is neither the first among his siblings and nor is he the only child of the family but as it is often said, there can be several princes but only the ordained becomes king and Yoruba say “Ori ti yio j’Oba, inu agogo ide nii tii wa” meaning the head that becomes a king emanates from inside a golden gong.

Gbadamosi is a well rooted international businessman, highly connected and a strongwilled go getter.

Late Mustapha Olanipekun, Ariwajoye11 enjoyed great friendship with Alhaji Mufutau Gbadamosi while he too enjoyed good mentorship from the late monarch.

He became Oloffa on popular votes and acceptance by Ifa Oracle and earned the love of his people. He was effectively compared and called ‘Dangote’ of Offa because of his tremendous wealth and philanthropy.

His first six years on the throne was greeted by legal issues occasioned by his brother from a rival ruling house but it ended up in an historic judgment that laid to rest all agitations, confusions and misuderstanding of the historic issue surrounding the throne. With that, he became the Ajagungbade1 in the lineage of Offa kingdom haven fought a legal tussle to retain his enthronement as Oloffa of Offa.

Since he became Oloffa of Offa on May 9, 2010, Oba Mufutau Okikiola Oloyede gbadamosi, Ajagungbade1, Esuwoye 11, the town of Offa has known immense development and remarkably last noticed when his forebears, Esuwoye1 was on the throne, several years ago.
