June 28, 2013 – Oba Erediauwa Of Benin Kingdom Marks 90th Birthday In Style (Pictures)

Last Saturday the 22nd of June 2013, the capital city of Edo state, Benin received thousands of dignitaries from all over the country.

The ancient Oba Erediauwa of Benin Kingdom celebrated his 90th birthday in style.

Though the king was absent from his birthday due to health issues, his son represented him through the event.

Benin palace walls and some popular streets in the city were decorated with beautiful banners by corporation and individuals wishing the king well.

As part of the celebration, a children’s party was held. It featured dancing competition and cultural troupes.

Oba Erediauwa’s wives were gorgeously dressed and surrounded by maids.

The entertainment for the event was provided by DJ Darmix and Osaretin Cultural Group.

There was a re-launch of a book written by the monarch, I Remain Sir, Your Loyal Servant.

Oba Erediauwa was not present, but his presence was felt. The cake was white and adorned with beads which symbolise purity of the monarch. The Oba is the only authority to present beads to individuals.

The Oba was represented by his son, Crown Prince Eheneden Erediauwa, who thanked all for celebrating his dad.

His queens who are rarely seen in public were led by Olori Esther Erediauwa.
