The Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Ogunwusi, has officially declared his unwavering support for the upcoming Ayan-Agalu Drum Festival, set to take place in Ontario, Canada next month.

The monarch endorsed the festival in response to an invitation letter extended to him.

Themed as “Rejigging Yoruba Cultural Heritage as Catalyst for National Unity, Progress, and Development – The Ayangalu Example,” the maiden edition of the Ayan-Agalu Festival has been scheduled for July 28.

The festival aims to showcase the rich cultural traditions of the Yoruba people, particularly in terms of social life, religion, monarchy, and other fundamental aspects of their existence, tracing its roots back to the kingdom of Ife in Southwestern Nigeria.

In the letter, the Ooni, wrote: “I write with great delight to endorse the inaugural The Drum (Ayan-Agalu) Festival scheduled to hold in Canada.

“I hereby congratulate my son who is the convener of the initiative, Prince Segun Akanni, and his team for their efforts in celebrating the prestigious Yoruba and indeed African culture.”

Upon receiving the commendation letter, Prince Segun Akanni, the convener of the Drum Festival, expressed great excitement, describing the Ooni’s endorsement as a majestic boost that will undoubtedly contribute to the resounding success of the event.
