Ooni Of Ife Sponsored My 40th Birthday Celebration To US- Younger Sister



Princess Adebimpe Ogunwusi is one of the younger sisters of His Imperial Majesty, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, the Ooni of Ife. She turned 40 a few months ago but traveled to the US with her  two other sisters to celebrate her big day. In this interview with City People, she explains how the Ooni sponsored the trip, how growing up was fun with Ooni in Ibadan and how she has remained the naughtiest, lol. It's a very interesting interview, once you start, you are likely not to stop. Please Enjoy!


How did you feel when you turned 40?
That was on May 1 to be precise, 2 months ago. I was so happy. I thank God for the journey so far. It is not by might but by the grace of God. It is the Lord’s doing. There are a lot of people who were born on the same day I was born that are no more. I thank God for my life, for giving me the grace to turn 40.

Before you turned 40, what plans did you have in terms of how to celebrate it.

I actually have been looking forward to it! I actually wanted a big birthday. I wanted to do it in 2 parts before. I wanted to have the morning session which would be the church service and reception in the evening. I had wanted to invite Obesere to play. I like Obesere a lot. But I just could not do that. One of my uncles died, so I couldn’t have an elaborate party. I eventually changed the way I wanted to celebrate it. So, I travelled with my sisters abroad. I went to America to celebrate it, courtesy the Ooni of Ife. He sponsored the trip, with the help of some of my friends like Bimbo Odeyemi (based in Canada), My father and my father’s wife. Everything turned out well.
