The AKINSIKU Of Lagos Reveals His Style Secrets



He is one of the best-dressed men in town. He is tall. He is 6 feet 5. He is stylish and handsome. He is always looking dashing and always on point. Whenever he steps into a party all heads will usually turn in the direction of this imposing figure who is blessed with a set of eyeballs that embellishes his good looks.

Be it in traditional or casuals, anything he wears looks good.

That is the story of Lagos Big Boy, High Chief Adebola Dosunmu, the Akinsiku of Lagos and Olori Eyo of Lagos.

It is a prestigious title that confers a lot of respect for him.
He is a successful businessman. He is also a socialite. So popular and well loved is he that everyone wants him to grace their party.

He socialises weĺl. He mixes well. Everyone both old and young simply calls him Akinsiku. Some call him the Olori Eyo of Lagos. "Both titles are one and the same ", he explains. 

"Akinsiku is the arrowhead of Eyo, the custodian of Adamu Orisa play, popularly called Eyo Festival. Nobody can stage Eyo Festival in Lagos without the approval of the Akinsiku Of Lagos. I am the Generalissimo of the Eyo in Lagos".

He took after his dad in many ways.

"I love my father.  He was a great man. He is late Pa Albert Olaribigbe Dosunmu, aka baba Agbalagba, May his soul rest in peace. He is one of the elders of Awe Adamu Orisa",

"My grandfather was the late Akinsiku of Lagos"

"I was born and bred in Lagos Island, Lagos, from Isale Eko, where  Lagos started from".

He is very stylish in his dressing. How did he develop that side of him?

"That’s my thing.  Since I was young, I have loved fashion.  When I was young,  my mum used to have problems with me as regards my clothes. She would say wear this.  I would be like no, this one is nicer."

He is not only stylish, but he also has a way he wears his caps.

"Yes, everything about me is stylish, Ara ni, the way I wear my cap is called Oloko".
Who are his close friends? "They are many", he says. "l make friends easily. I have my childhood friends and l have my school mates."

But City People Online Fashion and Beauty Magazine can reveal that he is close to a few people like Aremo Segun Oniru, Oba Saheed Elegunshi and the Ooni of Ife. He has many more.

"There are 2 who have died. Oluwanishola Oshodi and Olayinka Atiku. they are both late, May their souls rest in peace"
