For this week’s cultural performance, the Ultimate Love Guests each had to perform a role in a successful coronation of the new Oba of Benin Kingdom. From the monarchs to the Imam and Priest, you bet they all killed their individual roles; even the Oba’s guards and silent Queens were not left behind.

Recognition of the dignitaries

Our resident monarchs did not fail to show us some royalty drip – Arnold repping the Ooni of Ife with his beautiful wife Nkechi; the Emir of Kano represented by Kachi, Chris Ville representing Governor Godwin Obaseki, Louis being the Imam, Jerry the Priest (who seemed to have forgotten the Lord’s Prayers) and of course our able Oba, Obichukwu.

MC Iyke

Give Iyke a microphone and with his baritone voice, killing his role as the Master of Ceremony (MC) was a success. Do you agree?

The dance troupe

What’s a coronation ceremony without dance, dance, dance? Thanks to our special resident dancers - Meriton, Bolanle, Presh Talker and Sylvia.

After a successful presentation featuring the dance performance, opening prayers by the resident Imam and Priest, recognition of dignitaries, tributes by monarchs, the newly crowned Oba of Benin gave his speech and appreciation.
