February 21, (THEWILL) – Flamboyant monarch, the Olugbo of Ugboland and founder of OBAT oil, Oba Obateru Akinruntan is known for not sparing any cost to ensure that his children get the best out of life. Their constant happiness is always his priority and anything that may want to cut short their joy, he gives no room for it to thrive. Little wonder when his first daughter, Omobolanle decided to give marriage another trial with her lover, Olaniyi, the monarch jumped on board and pulled all the necessary resources to make it happen. He didn’t hesitate to travel down to Lagos from his royal palace in Ondo when his daughter hinted that she would prefer the wedding holds in Lagos. His very special royal seat was specially brought in to Lagos from Ondo State for that purpose. The lavish wedding which held last weekend at Osborne Foreshore Recreational Centre, Ikoyi, had close friends of the couple, celebrities, business tycoons, politicians, high net-worth individuals and some of the Olugbo’s fellow monarchs in attendance.
The respected oil mogul feted guests to mouth watering delicacies and choice wines and spirits.
Omobolanle used to be married to Ayodeji Fanawopo but the union ended with both citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the marriage packing up. For almost ten years, Ayodeji was in and out of the courts in Nigeria and London, fighting for the custody of his two children with Omobolanle. The custody battle lingered that long because according to the ex-husband, Omobolanle used every means possible, including her father’s connection to frustrate his efforts at getting custody of his two children.
