In every culture, there is always a festival that is being celebrated by the people of that culture either monthly basis or every year, and in this case, the Olojo Festival is one of the ancient festivals that is usually being celebrated by the Yoruba culture every year.
However, during this festive celebration, the traditional ruler of the Yoruba kingdom who is the Ooni of Ife usually wear a crown known as the "Are crown" which is arguably one of the heaviest crowns because of what it is made of.
Furthermore, during the ongoing Olojo festival in Ile-Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi was seen wearing the 'Are' crown which weighs 100KG according to reports as he held toward Oke Mogun where the final rituals and prayers were said. Due to the weight of this crown, some of his followers supported him by holding him.
