SALIU Adetunji, a high chief and Olubadan-designate, will be installed on Friday, March 4.
Adetunji broke the news at the weekend when Ebenezer Fabiyi Obey, a Juju music maestro visited him at his Popoyemoja residence in Ibadan.
The incoming Olubadan said the date was set after extensive consultations with stakeholders.
He said: “Sincerely, the Olubadan-in-Council must not only make but submit their endorsement of the Olubadan to Governor Abiola Ajimobi. Then, the Governor must ratify the decision.
“Once you cross the barrier, you get the date. So, the date is Friday, March 4 at Oja’Ba, Ibadan, where successive Olubadan received their staff of office.
“On March 5, there will be a big reception at a venue that is yet to be decided.”
According to him, the coronation was delayed because the late Oba Samuel Odulana Odugade deserved a befitting burial.
Obey described the Olubadan-elect as a dependable and reliable pillar in music recording, composition, promotion, advertisement and marketing.
He said nothing could be too much for any musician to do to ensure the success of the coronation.
The musician prayed for continued peace, progress and development in Ibadanland.
