HOW ERELU ABIOLA DOSUNMU RECONCILED WITH OBA AKIOLU
The Erelu of Lagos, Princess Abiola Dosunmu does not hide the fact that she enjoys socializing. Any party worth its salt always features this society matriarch. Since she was eased out of the Iga-Idugaran Palace by Oba Rilwan Akiolu, she has striven hard to make herself relevant in the society. For many years, Erelu Dosunmu even refused to be deterred by the no-love-lost relationship that existed between her and Oba Akiolu.
The good news is that the two have since made up and settled their differences.Our sources gathered that Erelu was the one that made the first move towards reconciliation. Oba Akiolu accepted the olive branch and the two have been cool with each other since then.
Meanwhile, after her bid to become a permanent fixture in former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s life failed, Erelu finally resorted to a charting a new path of keeping herself busy. A couple of years ago, she opened a multi-purpose club, Atlantic Beach Club, which is situated on Tiamiyu Savage Street, Victoria Island.
This club is mostly patronized by many notable society ladies. And during the any festive period, Erelu would host a soiree for her friends. Well, the party is usually, more of a charity ball, because each guest is made to part with certain amount of money. Although, some of Erelu’s invitees usually boycott the party, most of her friends always grace the event.
