“Among the many eye-catching attendees at the Ojude Oba festival this year, Oreagba stole the show.

Clad in a flamboyant green and yellow Asooke Agbada, he rode majestically on horseback, a photo of which went viral and earned him the title ‘King of Steeze’.

Oreagba has assumed several roles in the finance industry for over thirty years. He was a member of the Derivatives Product Advisory Committee of the Nigerian Stock Exchange before taking on his current position as the Managing Director of NG Clearing Limited in 2023.
