See These Awesome Images Of Nigerian Monarchs

Nigerian monarchy has undergone massive change in the past few years but one thing remains constant; These kings and queens are still held in very high esteem in their various kingdoms. They serve as the custodians of the culture and traditions laid down to them by their forefathers.

Talented photographer George Osodi captured these monarchs in their regal glory.

It is necessary to note that as at the time of writing, some of these kings have sadly joined their ancestors.
