Dear father & benefactor,
I, with a heart filled with great happiness and with the greatest honor and respect herein humbly extent my heartfelt congratulatory wishes to you my father, Arole Oduduwa Olofin Adimula, Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi Ojaja II, The Ooni of Ife, on this big day of your birthday anniversary.
Baba, may the Almighty Olodumare keep blessing you, the royal family of Ogunwusi, Giesi Ruling House, Agbedegbede Royal Compound, The Kingdom of Ife and The Entire Oodua Race under your indefatigable leadership as all your subjects globally; descendants of Oduduwa and the Africans in diaspora, especially the Nigerian youths are very pleased with you and very proud of your uncommonly transformational reign, not only because you are the king(Ooni) of Ile-Ife which undisputedly remains the cradle and ancestral home of anyone who refers to him/herself as a Yoruba or as a descendant of Oduduwa, irrespective of his or her great personality, and of course not just because you comfortably occupy that same throne first occupied by the Olofin Adimula Oduduwa himself, the progenitor of our race who through his expansionist policy authorized the establishment of all other kingdoms with their respective crowns and thrones without any exception, but also and mainly because of the unrivaled impactfulness and pragmatism with which you have so far piloted this sacred throne in such a progressive direction currently showcasing the Black Race as a center of peace stability and progress for the future survival of the entire universe.
KABIYESI ALASE, I once again say congratulations to you Baba mi Otiti ki’ke miiii Akande Babatunde Omo Giesi Ijana, mo ba Giesi re’jana, mo Debooye re’Pole, Omo Ol’esin Merindinlogun, Mejo n j’eko Mejo o je, Omo Agbedegbede Eebo Alowo s’ile k’oyinbo to de, Oyinbo de tan owo naa tun po si ni o Alaka Omo Apaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaara!!!
I heartily pray the Almighty Olodumare shall grant your journey of life with very many more fruitful years of sound health and immeasurable prosperity as you are gloriously a year older today.🙏
