Ara “Queen Of Drums” Welcomed With Both Hands By Obasanjo

Erstwhile president Olusegun Obasanjo in a very delightful
state welcomed the queen of drums -ARA with both hands
during a visit at his place of residence, Abeokuta, Ogun

Enlivened by her presence, Obasanjo exclaimed with very
obvious joy Omo mi (my child) and the queen of drums
answered with Baba mi(my father). The scene was not
surprising to many who were there, given the fact that ARA
is an immense personality of great repute and portraying
our culture positively…she’s very worthy of being among
the ‘few people’ in Obasanjo’s rare circle of great influence.

But they were all in admiration of her because of the
tremendous humility that flows with her magnificent

The queen of drums invited the former president to the
premiere of her movie ‘Osunfunke’ slated for October 12th
with the presentation of the invitation card and with great
delight he smiled in gratification at the success of his ever-
beautiful daughter -ARA.

“Moved by this great achievement, Obasanjo took some
appreciable time out of his extra-busy day to pray for the
delectable goddess”.

Revered and recognized highly as an ambassador of peace
in Nigeria, Africa and beyond, the erstwhile president
commended ARA for portraying our culture positively with
her brand of music and encouraged her to remain resolute
in her pursuit for increasing-awareness to the benefits of
tapping into the potentials in our culture.
