Olori Sekinat Elegushi, wife of the Elegushi of Ikateland, has expressed her gratitude after her Instagram page hit 60,000 followers on Tuesday.
She said in a post that has a photo of herself and husband Oba Saheed Elegushi that they do not take their followers’ love for granted.
“Thank you to all 60k lovely followers! We never take your love for granted,” she wrote.
Oba Elegushi has seven times the number of Instagram followers his wife has. As of press time, he had 414,000 followers.
Last month, it was rumoured that Olori Sekinat was hospitalised following a Brazilian butt lift (BBL).
Some bloggers reported that the king’s wife fell into a coma in Turkey after undergoing a bum enlargement surgery.
A popular London-based blogger even claimed the queen died from the surgery.
Oba Elegushi, however, debunked the reports in a statement released by his spokesperson Temitope Oyefeso on May 8, describing them as fake news “which only exist in the wicked imagination of the authors.”
The king added that his senior wife was hale and hearty and going about her responsibilities in the palace.
“The palace takes serious exception to any unfounded and malicious news regarding the royal family and will not hesitate to bring the full weight of the law on anyone found culpable,” the statement continued.
Oba Elegushi married Sekinat in 2003 and the union has produced three daughters.
The monarch married a second wife Hadiza Yakasai from Kano in 2019.
Olori Sekinat had said in an interview that she is not bothered by her husband’s decision to marry another wife and that all men cheat.
