YORUBA MONARCHS IN FEUD: OBA AKIOLU OF LAGOS PUBLICLY SNUBS OONI OF IFE AT A SOCIAL EVENT

The Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Aremu Akiolu, recently, humiliated the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi at a public function.

In the 25 seconds video which has gone viral, the Ooni of Ife is seen arriving the venue of the event which had the Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu II, sitting beside an unidentified oba.

The Ooni walked over to greet the obas, but as soon as he offered the Oba of Lagos his hands, Oba Akiolu looked away and dismissed him with a wave of the hand.

The embarrassed monarch quietly returned to his seat.

The incident, however, sparked outrage on the social media as many commentators condemned Oba Akiolu, describing his action as unbecoming of a Yoruba monarch.

A Facebook user, Kenny Statesman said, ” No No No!!! This is not worthy of Oba of Lagos, seriously I’m extremely disappointed.”

In another post,  Deji Afolayan wrote, “… I see no reason why Oba Akiolu should act like that, I really like the Oba of Lagos but his action here is uncalled for.”

One Kayode Henry wrote, ” This attitude is unbecoming of a king in Yoruba land. The Ooni of Ife no matter his age is a superior Oba to all other obas…”

” If it were to be in the days where culture and tradition still takes its rightful place, all the obas no matter your age should be on their feet whenever the Obaluaye of Ife ( Ooni) comes in . But the respectful king did not even think about that but came to embrace the Oba of Lagos on his seat, but all he could do is this show of shame.”
Abiodun Olojede said, ” What an act of arrogance. It is very unfortunate that the Oba of Lagos disgraced himself, not the highly respected Ooni of Ife…”

  1. So sad and so embarrassing! Well, in a chaotic state…in a state of anomie (a state of normlessness) anything is possible. Why would we accuse foreigners or outsiders of disrespecting and devaluing us when, that’s what we do to ourselves on a regular basis? We need to go back to the drawing board and the quicker we do, the better for us!
