Asona Royal family, Ghana

Okyehene fingered in illegal mining | Local News
The Asona Royal family of Kyebi has called on the Okyehene (King), Osagyefo Amoatia Ofori Panyin II, to come clean on accusations leveled against him on some illegal mining activities being carried out behind one of his houses.
According to members of the royal family, the Okyehene is responsible for everything that goes on in his jurisdiction and cannot say he was not aware of the illegal operations locally referred to as galamsey being carried out behind his property.
The royal family has also jumped to the defense of one of its members, Odehyee Kwame Adjei Boateng, who is being accused of spearheading a campaign to taint the image of the Okyehene.

Okyehene, Asona Royal family supporters clash over galamsey | Local News
What started as a mere accusation against the Okyehene (King) for supporting illegal mining in Kyebi in the Eastern region almost led to bloodshed on Tuesday.
This morning Nana (Prince) Adjei Boateng planned a visit to the palace to dare the Okyehene to swear before the deity in the full glare of the public. But his group reportedly clashed with the Okyehene’s supporters who stopped the planned ceremony.
There were firing of gun shots with several people getting injured in the melee as people run helter-skelter for their lives, Evans Appiah who works with Adom FM recounted.

allAfrica.com: Nigeria: Constitutional Role for Royal Fathers?

...The switch from parliamentary to presidential constitution swept away many institutions, but, certainly, not the traditional institution. Even after the abrogation of the first parliamentary constitution in January 1966, the royals have continued as custodians of culture and tradition of their communities.

...The parliamentary system of government in the First Republic made constitutional provisions for royal fathers in the political affairs of the country. Thus, the parliamentary system, which established Regional Houses of Chiefs, allowed traditional rulers to participate in politics. It was therefore not surprising that the Regional Houses of Chiefs had royal fathers like Sir Muhammadu Sanusi, Emir of Kano, Alhaji Usman Nagogo, Emir of Katsina, the Makama of Bida, and the Ooni of Ife, Sir Adesoji Aderemi.


Newswatch Magazine - The Sultan on a Peace Mission

In five years as the 20th Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar III, has won great respect and honour for the throne of his forefathers as a crusader for peace and unity.

Sokoto, capital of Sokoto State in the North West geo-political zone of Nigeria, was agog with celebrations that fateful afternoon of November 2, 2006, when the announcement came that Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar III has been appointed new Sultan, the spiritual head of Muslims in Nigeria, in replacement for Muhammadu Maccido, his predecessor. His mien, humility and enviable background, not just as a member of the wider royal family but also as a gentle military officer who rose to the rank of a Brigadier General, contributed in making him acceptable to the people. Abubakar was clearly the choice of many.

He clocked five on the throne last week, November 2. Five years after he mounted the exalted throne as the 20th Sultan of Sokoto, the love for Abubakar has not diminished. Rather, he has grown both in influence and knowledge of spiritual and socio-political issues around him and has become Nigeria’s most powerful traditional ruler. The Sultan’s palace in Sokoto, is like a Mecca of sort. People from various parts of the country, the rich, the poor and the average, including foreigners mill around the palatial building which has received varying degrees of decoration and architectural retouching.

The Sultan’s current rating as Nigeria’s most powerful religious and traditional leader is attested to by the nature of positions he now holds, as well as duties and responsibilities assigned to him in the country. Within the five years past, the Sultan had carried on with his traditional duty as president general of the Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs. He combines this with his appointment by the federal government as co-chairman of the Nigeria Inter-Religious Council, NIREC, and the National Council of Traditional Rulers in Nigeria. He is often consulted by government on many national issues. On account of the positions of influence he occupies, Sultan Abubakar has been vocal on issues around him. Fearless and very outspoken, as he makes his positions clear on national and global issues, he has also come to be seen and widely regarded as an advocate of unity, peace, ethnic and inter-religious harmony in Nigeria.

Sherifa Gunu: The Toast of International Icons | General Entertainment | Peacefmonline.com
The princess of the Gunu Royal Family of Dagbon goes the extra mile to explain why she has a heart for music, and why her entire life is dedicated to music as a tool for spreading the message of peace, instead of the many other opportunities the industry has to offer.

Ataoja Stool: Monarch, High Chief On War Path | OSUN DEFENDER
The crisis rocking the palace of Ataoja of Osogbo has taken another dimension, as one of the high chiefs; the Ajagunna of Osogbo, was questioned by the police on the request of the Ataoja, Oba Jimoh Olanipekun, over breach of trust. Investigation conducted by OSUN DEFENDER revealed that the relationship between the two personalities went cold when the Ataoja learnt that his chiefs were colluding with his rivals to eject him from the palace.
[...]
A source inside the palace informed the medium that the monarch had the biggest mistrust in Ajagunna, who he believed has a lot of influence over the other chiefs in the palace and among some politicians.
The source further disclosed that the troubled Ataoja decided to thread carefully with the high chief, considering the role he(Ajagunna) played in his emergence as the Ataoja last year and in the dispute that later engulfed the palace.
It was also learnt that the high chief was suddenly invited by the police for questioning, which surprised his family members, when they learnt his arrest was prompted by the monarch.

Nigeria - Igwe of Nnewi

Nnewi Celebrates Nigeria's Longest Serving Monarch

Igwe Kenneth Orizu (III), age 86, has displayed all the attributes of greatness by his depth of character in the 48 years of his being on the throne of the ancient Kingdom of Nnewi. He has remained unswayed by material attractions and superficial rewards especially of the sort that are being flaunted by persons of lesser pedigree.
[...]
Under the Igwe, who was coronated as Orizu III in 1963 following the death of his father Josiah Orizu II, Nnewi gained prominence as West Africa’s biggest spare-parts hub. The town’s main trading centers include Nkwo Nnewi market often indentified as the largest spare parts market in the West African sub-region. There is also the Nwafor and Eke markets.

The Speaker of Anambra State House of Assembly, Princess Chinwe Nwebili said that the celebratory event has de-mystified the notion that Ndi-Igbo have no king.On the monarch’s ability to promote development without endangering ancient tradition the Igwe is said to believe and live in progress and modernization while preserving the essential fabrics of the Nnewi culture, custom and tradition. He is thus seen as a steadfast man in the middle of changes.

Nigerian princess and burlesque star to host Valentine’s Day bash • The Brooklyn Paper
She’s a burlesque star and a Nigerian princess!
Princess Pat — a.k.a. musician and burlesque performer Patience Mukoro — will bear (almost) all in name of love and harmony in Sideshows by the Seashore’s second annual Valentine’s Day For Lovers and Losers party on Feb. 14 in Coney Island.

Mukoro, a Lagos native who was born into a royal family but left her homeland for the People’s Playground in the mid-1990s, said the Adam and Eve-themed bash featuring music, magic and dance was designed for longtime couples and lonely singles alike.

Kingdom of Barotseland (Zambia)

On 18 May 1964, Litunga Mwanawina III, King of Barotseland and Kenneth Kaunda Prime Minister of Northern Rhodesia signed the "Barotseland Agreement 1964" which established Barotseland's position within Zambia in place of the earlier agreement between Barotseland and the British Government.

The agreement was based on a long history of close social, economic and political interactions. The Barotseland Agreement granted Barotse authorities and people specified limited local self-governance rights and rights to be consulted on specified matters, including over land, natural resources and local government.

With their brightly coloured robes, ornate thrones and legions of flunkeys attending every whim, they seem every bit the archetypal African kings.
Nigeria's traditional Monarchs may have been stripped of their powers half a century ago, but they appear to have lost little of their regal pomp and splendour as this fascinating series of portraits shows.
Photographer George Osodi toured the west African country extensively for a series of photographs entitled 'Kings of Nigeria' which is due to be exhibited at London's Bermondsey Project in October.

Fairytale wedding as Loughgall girl marries son of King of Lagos - Local - Portadown Times

Published on 16/08/2013 11:31 Loughgall Presbyterian Church played host to a royal wedding yesterday (Thursday) as the Crown Prince of Lagos tied the knot with his Loughgall bride. Kirsty Crooks (27), from Loughgall, was the envy of many a young girl, when she became a princess after exchanging wedding vows with Prince Mustapha Oniru of Lagos in Nigeria.

The regal ceremony in the tiny village was attended by royalty from the African continent who witnessed the Prince’s marriage to the apple of his eye from the Orchard county. The Prince’s father HRM Oba (King) Idowu Abiodun Oniru and Queen Olori Arike Oniru attended the service in Loughgall Presbyterian Church which was conducted by Rev Philip McKelvey. While Prince Mustapha wore a regular wedding suit, his family, King Idowu and Queen Olori wore their traditional Nigerian dress. The Prince brought with him a huge entourage included family members, officials and chiefs.
