Oba Saheed Ademola Elegushi, the Elegushi of Ikate Kingdom, is linked to a public unveiling of a daughter, whose mother, Tonya Lawani, has been alleged as the monarch’s lover.
Lawani revealed the face of her daughter, adding a new twist to the circulating rumors about her relationship with Oba Elegushi.
A Special Birthday Reveal
Marking her birthday, Lawani decided to share pictures of herself and her children, including her son and baby girl, on Instagram.
Accompanying her post, she wrote a heartfelt message of gratitude, highlighting the blessings of life and family, and citing the biblical passage of Psalm 127:3 which emphasizes the value and blessing of children.
Oba Elegushi’s Silence Amid Speculations
Despite the growing speculations, the Elegushi monarch has not publically acknowledged having a child with Lawani.
The entrepreneur, however, made headlines in 2022 when she gave birth to a baby girl.
There were earlier reports of the Edo-born princess being pregnant for Oba Elegushi, and it was later confirmed by reliable sources that she had delivered her baby in the United States.
Monarch’s Feelings and Reactions
While reports suggest the monarch was pleased that Lawani had a safe delivery, some believe it would have been a pivotal moment for him if the baby had been a boy.
His silence since the birth of the new princess has triggered further speculation.
However, sources confirm that he had visited the United States to see his new daughter.
Possible Impact on Monarch’s Future Plans
It is alleged that the birth of the princess could have altered Oba Elegushi’s plans concerning marital rites with the incoming Olori, according to City Scoop.
The Loss of an Heir
It’s worth noting that Oba Elegushi experienced a tragic loss earlier in 2022 when his only son and heir, born to his second wife, Queen Hadiza, passed away.
The cause of the prince’s death remains undisclosed, leading to various conjectures among fans.
The young prince was just one year and seven months old at the time of his unfortunate passing.
Oba Elegushi married Queen Hadiza, a Kano-born daughter of a well-known politician, Alhaji Tanko Yakassai, in May 2020, and their nuptials took place in Abuja.Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
