‘His Imperial Majesty Has Arrived’ — Nigerian King Visits Silicon Valley

On a clear, cool and beautiful Monday morning at San Francisco International Airport, a figure emerged from the baggage claim. Dressed in traditional Yoruba attire and surrounded by servants destined to remain by his side for the remainder of his life, his official announcer declared: “His Imperial Majesty has arrived!” He shouted loud enough that passengers made no mistake that Nigerian royalty has arrived, and what followed was pure pandemonium. Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi Ojaja II is the 51st Monarch and Ooni of Ife.
