Ooni of Ife hosted to a dinner and cultural night by Cuban ambassador to Nigeria (Photos)

Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi on Thursday, hosted by the Cuban Ambassador to Nigeria to a cultural and entertainment dinner in Abuja.

Many Cubans are considered Yorubas who were taken away to the South American country as slaves and there has been cultural affinity between the Yorubas and the Cubans. The event was attended by Prof Wole Soyinka, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, Ajayi Borrofice, Babajide Omoworare among other senators and top government officials. Also present were some Obas of Yoruba land.
