Oba Saheed Ademola Elegushi, Kusenla 111, the Elegushi of Ikateland, holds a special record within the Lagos social circuit. At 37, he is the youngest king in Lagos State. Fondly called King Gushi by his admirers,  Elegushi ascended the throne in April 2010, following the death of his father, Oba Yekini Adeniyi Elegushi in 2009. His coronation ceremony was characterized by a colourful fanfare, which spanned several days. 
Just a few months ago, Oba Elegushi and his wife, Oloori Sekinat Aramide (nee Ipaye) marked their 10th wedding anniversary. Quite unlike their wedding ceremony, which was celebrated with so much pageantry in 2003, the 10th wedding anniversary was devoid of fanfare, as the couple shunned any form of celebration. Rather, they opted for a special prayer, which was strictly a family affair. 
Oba Elegushi and Aramide are childhood sweethearts. They met during their undergraduate days in Lagos. The bond they shared was so strong back then that their friends knew that it would result into marriage. Ten years down the line, the bond keeps waxing stronger and the couple seems determined to maintain that tempo of love. The union is blessed with three children. 
Oba Elegushi is a graduate of Economics from Lagos State University, Ojo. Also, he bagged a Masters in Public Administration from Manchester Business School, University of Manchester, United Kingdom.  Between 2003 and 2007, Oba Elegushi served as the Personal Assistant to Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the former Lagos State governor. He was also a Senior Special Assistant on Special Duties to Governor Babatunde Fashola between 2007 and 2010. 
Aramide is a graduate of Accountancy from the University of Lagos. She runs a chain of business enterprise, which encompasses grocery, boutique, household wares and beauty salon. Blessed with an ebullient nature and warm disposition, Aramide is gradually building an enviable reputation as the most stylish queen in Nigeria. She always stands out whenever she steps out at an event.
