BEVERLY HILLS, April 05, (THEWILL) – Only a man of means and a loving disposition like His Royal Majesty, Oba Saheed Elegushi, can comfortably keep two ravishingly beautiful women as his queens, despite his age, without fear of confrontations between the two women or back stabbings. From choice fabrics to expensive and rare jewelries and accessories to homes, flashy automobiles, hefty investments running into millions of naira, vacations to exotic places – HRM Elegushi hasn’t been found lacking in a few of the aforementioned just so as to prevent a ‘third world war’ from brewing in his home.
When he met his first wife, Olori Sekinat, she must have thought that their love which began on the campus of the Lagos State University, would stand the test of time without a third party. But how wrong she was. After three female children, the 44 year old King, perhaps longing for a heir apparent, made his intentions known about taking a second wife. Expectedly, Olori Sekinat protested vehemently against this but she soon calmed down after emissaries visited her and reassured her of her rightful place.
Then he married Kano born Hadiza who is the younger sister to Salihu Tanko Yakasai, the sacked media aide to Abdulahi Ganduje, Kano State governor, who fled Nigeria after his ‘unscheduled visit’ to the DSS for constantly criticising President Muhammadu Buhari’s style of governance. To keep both wives happy, Oba Elegushi has had to scale up his spending pattern. In addition to still providing his first wife with some of the finest things that money can buy, he funded the building of one of the largest and most beautiful events place in Nigeria for her.
The all white edifice aptly named The Monarch sits on a 10,000sqm of land in Lagos Island with a 500 car park capacity and with the interior and exterior decor carefully chosen and planned with flawless finesse. For his second wife who recently bore him a son, he reportedly bought her an expansive and palatial home in an exclusive part of Abuja. This is also in addition to spoiling her with vacations, choice cars, jewelries and accessories, one of which she was spotted carrying at an event she recently attended with her husband. The peach colored Judith Lieber crystal embellished peony purse costs the monarch a whooping N3m. Who says you can’t have it all when you have the means.
