The Ojude Oba Festival is a renowned cultural celebration that takes place in Ijebu-Ode, a historic city in Nigeria. This is an annual event held to honor the Oba, the traditional ruler of the Ijebu kingdom, and to celebrate the rich cultural heritage of the Yoruba people.

I’m glad I am able to share this detailed explainer and mini travel guide with you. Hope this sheds more light on this amazing event that happens only once a year and looking forward to next years event which would be more amazing.

Please check out the short cinematic film I did on this festival too.
