"80 Years Ago...
A Prince was born into Oyo Kingdom who later turned to the deity sent to come and transform the land. You ascended the throne for close to five decades now, bringing unprecedented development in all spheres of human endeavours into the Kingdom in all famifications, promoting peace among your subjects, The only Yoruba Cultural ambassador recognized across the globe, you installed the highest number of Obas in our history, the only Oba that installed two Aare Ona Kakanfos.
An embodiment of knowledge that is worth institutionalizing for future guidance in our history, socio political, governance, economy cum urban town planning and management.
Your knowledge about humanities and the history of the entire globe, your style of administrations, your philanthropy confirms you are truly a deity sent to all...
Your costume and cultural carriage confirms you're the heritage and remains the only reference other royalties emulates, what of your dancing skills, our pride, their envy.
Almighty Allah, keep Atanda long enough to do more of what you sent him to do for us in this land, in abundance of all good things of life. Amen and Amen.
Happy Birthday Okomi Olayiwola Atanda Omo Ibironke...
Happy Celebration To The Yoruba Race...Ikubabayeye Alase Igba Keji Orisa..💚💚💚"
