I call us the chosen ones.Before I get you confused, let me narrate this mission to us, God gave me an idea, he nurtured the idea and I was sent forth to spread the idea, despite the distractions of the world and our day to day struggles, we came together in unity, with a resolve to come together under one umbrella, one destiny, one agenda, which is the Yoruba Agenda. For buying into this vision, for steadfast and commitment to this vision, I make bold to say "We Are God's Chosen One"This year colour event witness the two most prominent Oba in Yoruba land, His Imperial Majesty, Oba Lamidi Atanda Olayiwola Adeyemi III (Alaafin of Oyo), His Imperial Majesty, Oba Babatunde Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi (Ojaja II, Oni of Ife) and other traditional rulers.
