Preparation is presently underway in Ile-Ife, Osun State, as Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, is in making plans to reel out his best during the 2019 edition of Aje Festival.
This year’s festival will hold on February 18, 2019 in Ile-Ife, Osun State.
Nollywood stars, including King Wasiu Ayinde Marshal, Saheed Balogun, Idowu Philips (Iya Rainbow), Iyabo Ojo among many other actors are expected to grace this year’s festival.
The promoter of 2019 Aje Festival, Princess Toyin Kolade, has also swung into action in preparation for the event and has promised to have a better outing this year.
The Iyalaje of Apapa, Lagos State, has called on Nigerians to attend the festival.
She noted that the festival is too important to be ignored, adding that serious people who care for the future generation should be part of history.
The Ooni of Ife, during the festival, will lead the procession to the ‘Idi Aje’. This is the shrine where the Aje deity resides.
After prayers with the pigeon at the ‘Idi Aje’, the Pigeon will be set free.
Aje Festival literally means festival of wealth strictly for successful business people.
