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).

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.
