Lagos monarch, Oba Rilwan Akiolu, is one of the most popular royal fathers in Nigeria. The former police officer weilds a lot of influence and is friends with a lot of bigwigs.

In his seventies, Akiolu is an established socialite and frequents some of the biggest parties hosted by his ilk in Lagos.

Always well turned-out, he was one of those who attended the Adebutu/Obasanjo wedding. Dressed in regal attire and accompanied by a retinue of aides, Akiolu made a grand entry into the Eko Hotel and Suites venue of the wedding.

Akiolu became the centre of attention when he joined the couple and their parents on the dance floor. Serenaded by ace juju musician, King Sunny Ade, guests looked on in wonderment as Akiolu pasted dollar notes on the foreheads of the newly-weds. Former President Olusegun Obasanjo and lotto merchant, Chief Kessington Adebutu, also benefitted from Akiolu’s generosity.
