The amiable Christian monarch, Kabiyesi Oba (Dr) Mathew Oyekale, the Ola Aresa of Masifa has returned to his Master and Lord, Jesus Christ. His departure from earth occurred on Thursday April 26th, in the 41st year of an eventful reign on the throne of his fore-fathers. He was buried with pomp and pageantry on Saturday 21st July 2018. A Pastor who witnessed the event confessed it was the first time he would see a Yoruba monarch buried openly and without the involvement of any cult groups.
