The exploits of High Priest Osemwengvie Ebohon of Ebohon Cultural Centre, Benin City, has finally gained the approval and recognition of the Benin Monarch, Oba Erediauwa. This was sequel to the royal beads recently sent to the celebrated Benin cultural icon by His Royal Majesty, Oba Erediauwa.
Speaking during the celebration ceremony of the royal beads,
High Priest Ebohon paid glowing tribute to the Benin Royal Monarch for the honour bestowed on him. Palace functionaries of the Oba of Benin were at the Ebohon Cultural centre to perform the necessary traditional rites and subsequently decorated the High Priest with the different sets of bead.
It will be recalled that a royal bead recipient is colourfully selected, and the prerogative of giving out the royal bead is the sole right of the Benin Monarch alone.
High priest Ebohon is a renowned Benin cultural revivalist of international repute. He is a multi talented artiste; singer, dancer producer and a sculptor.
