Outrage as Oba of Lagos disrespects Ooni of Ife (Video)

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. See clip...


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.”

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...”

  4. Our elders these days have no honour, yet they believe [even demand, despite disrespectful character] they deserve honour from the younger ones.

    Hope the two Obas amends the situation before it degenerated to feud level.

  15. I think the ooni should adjust and act out his position. To me, he is too naive and do not understand the powers that he wills. The last time, I learnt he went visiting some subordinates. To me, he is like a white hen that don't know his highly elevated position. He should adjust and act out his position, he should add a bit of pride to himself but not arrogance. He is too simple, that's why these people are taking him for granted. Young king, please wise up! You are crowned king and envy cannot dethrone you. You remain king!. Just be upright and firm that's all!

  20. I can see oba of lagos as an arrogant and low mentality man, if he failed to apologies to oni of ife, we Yoruba youth council will pass our own insult to him on all forms of media and we ll not give him any respect giving to all Yoruba obas and will show him is origination. Obaluaye, iku baba yeye olubuse,ooni of ife, maa binu o agba ti o binu lomo re npo.
