Ooni Of Ife Adopts 17yr Old Boy Who Drew Him, Gives Him Full Scholarship

Adeyeye Ogunwusi, the Ooni of Ife, has adopted as his own a 17-year-old boy who artistically drew his portrait with just a pencil, Legit reports. In a post he made on Thursday, June 26, the monarch said that he would pay the boy’s tuition fee up to the university level and give him a job when he graduates. “I got tagged on Twitter a few months back from a young man who made a brilliant pencil drawing of myself, in my appreciation for his art I invited him to my palace,” Ooni said.

The monarch added that it is a fact that if all work together irrespective of their social status, there will be access to socio-economic opportunities for all. Ooni of Ife said when he met Samuel’s mother, a corn seller, she demonstrated an “incredible heart of motherhood”. He said helping the artist is part of his plan to help young Nigerians in achieving great heights in life.
