After the 2023 presidential election result, the Ojude Oba festival in Ijebu Ode, Ogun State, Yorubaland, Southwest, Nigeria (2024) is the next event that brings sorrows, pains, nightmare, darkness, sickness, bitterness, anger and jealousy into the depth of your soul.

I hope Farooq Oreagba
(a k.a Maximum Steeze) would not be one of the reasons you failed at everything you do including supporting your beloved candidate.

So what does he wanna prove with the Cuban cigar in his mouth


Person wey supposed draw closer to God for saving his life is out there fooling himself


Were you there when he was fighting for his life on the sick bed?

Did his God reported his inadequacies to you?

Did his God complained about his Cuban cigar to you?

Your lost the better part of your brain the day Peter Obi lost the election.

Meet Farooq Oreagba, a cancer survivor who stole the show with his charisma at the 2024 Ojude Oba Day celebration.

The stylish and charismatic Oreagba, a former Member of the Derivatives Product Advisory Committee of the Nigerian Stock Exchange, made a grand entrance on horseback, showcasing his unique fashion sense.


His viral photos and videos at the Ojude Oba festival captured the attention of netizens across Nigeria with some praising his sense of style and “steeze”.

One of the highlights of the festival was pictures and videos of Oreagba at the 2024 Ojude Oba Day, wearing a beautiful tattoo on his arm while rocking a full aso-oke agbada regalia.

Born in July 1966 in Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State, Oreagba started his educational journey in his hometown at Ijebu-Ode Grammar School before attending King’s College Lagos.

According to his profile on LinkedIn, he also acquired a degree at Edward Greenes College, Oxford in London.

He graduated from Oxford with distinction before returning to acquire a Bachelor of Engineering (BEng), Combined Engineering Studies from Coventry University (1985-1989).

He also stated that he acquired a BTec Diploma, in Business & Finance (1991 – 1993) from the University of East London.

Oreagba has also picked up numerous certifications from different educational institutions at home and abroad.

Over the last four decades, Oreagba has worked in the financial sector in Nigeria and abroad.

Oreagba is a former Member of the Derivatives Product Advisory Committee of the Nigerian Stock Exchange.

He, however, stepped away from his role amid his fight with bone and skin cancer.

In April 2014, Oreagba was diagnosed with osteosarcoma and carcinoma, which, in simpler terms, can be translated to mean bone marrow and skin cancer, respectively.

He had a complete remission on February 3, 2015, and was declared cancer-free and healthy in 2017.


Oreagba is currently the managing director of NG Clearing Limited.

He was appointed MD/CEO of NG Clearing Limited in September 2023.

This appointment came nearly six years after Oreagba had to step away from the financial sector due to health issues.

Salute to the Ijebu Ode-born, United Kingdom-educated investment banker and cancer survivor. I appreciate Farooq for sharing his profound experience in that video as a cancer survivor.

He got swag. Very fashionable with a sense of style and legit alpha male confidence.


I watched the full engaging video before even commenting on this thread. Impressive takes!

You're becoming sick now

You've so much lost focus in life that you can't even stay on topic anymore....A very basic thing to do

Get help ASAP
See a therapist
Shut up!

The country is sick and it's because a useless and wicked old man is the head.
Are you not tired of supporting him? Until insecurity takes you off the surface of this earth before you go get sense? Just a question.

But I wish you well 🙏

He has done so well for himself over the years as an investment banker

This is a link to his interview as cancer survivor

He's a very charismatic guy at 58. I instantly got drawn to him when I first saw his photographs earlier today. With that Cuban cigar in between his lips and the tats on his arms, he looked like the Don but with steely confidence.

He's got a sense of style that is natural and I appreciate Farooq for sharing his fight with cancer in this VERY profound video. The MRI scan which his ex-wife who is a medical doctor and other specialists used to detect the stage-1 cancer is VERY important for all of us besides being on good diets.

Cancer survivor.... and smoking cigar? Some people we hold in high esteem are the ones that destroy our culture. Why push cigar and horse at a cultural event when neither has nothing to do with the culture?

This year Ojude Oba was colourful as usual
Am really happy how you applaud this Man in all ramifications.

My question is this, wont you be happy to see such Man become the president of Nigeria
You people have such vibrant, intelligent personality and you keep reclying old, Brain dead politicians to suffer the masses. Is it fair

So what's the Ojude Oba all about and it's colorful display of traditional wears?


Its a culture that promote bonding, recognition, homeage to the king, socialization and promote heritage with opulence from generation to generation.
with ojude oba no indigene can forget home, a place yu visit regularly yu'll want to establish something there, that is economical growth

Another angle is these will encourage the indigeneous youths and next generation to work harder to be rich so they can get admission

Even with all those aforementioned qualities if the man doesnt have a heart naa same result ... its not as if our elected leaders don't know what to do ? they won't just solve the problem becos our problem is the source of there own wealth and control

Once upon a time, we thought refinery is all we need to have to solve our problem, today dangote builds a refinery n they are furstrating him with lil or no crude, from exporting we are changing to import crude to refine very funny country
