May 25, 2016 – Ooni Of Ife’s Visit To Atiku Sparks Outrage, Oba Adeyeye Accused Of Playing Politics With Ooni Title

Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi Downgrading Ooni Title – Palace Insider Alleges

By NaijaGists.com

Osun State most controversial monarch Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi has come under fire for allegedly downgrading the influence the Ooni of Ife crown carries.

Since his coronation, the monarch has been travelling from town to town and meeting people like a common politician but unknown to him, the Ooni title is not as cheap as he portrays it.

Critics online and offline claimed that the youngest monarch in the history of Ile Ife seems to have misplaced his priority.

If you check the history of previous Oonis, how many time do you see them jumping from place to place like this new monarch

In this case, it should be Atiku visits Ooni of Ife and not Ooni waka go Atiku’s house.

“I personally think it his high time his HRH check historical facts and make some adjustment. The Ooni title is too big for such unworthy visits” – said a palace insider to NaijaGists.com in a telephone conversation yesterday

Here are some photos from Ooni’s visit to Atiku

  1. Thank you brother Segun Odelabu for your insightful comment. I fully agree with you that positions attained accidentally are usually ridicules or rendered valueless by careless occupants. We-the Yorubas now have Oni of Ife visiting people like he is nobody. He attends parties and functions like he is a common socialist who just want to party and dance away sorrow, and never like the most respected and influential king in Yoruba Kingdom. The is the same king who married a woman who was once married to Former Gov. Of Jigawa state where she was called Aisha. The same woman that this socialist Oni married was a legal wife a Lebanese business in Dubai where she was named Sonia. Oba Adeyeye now called her Wuraola-meaning Precious metal or material. I hope that this young king will not drag the dignity, honor, and highly powerful influence of Oni title in the mud with his uncontrolled visits to people that doesn’t matter. The Ife king makers should call the kabiyesi to order. Is high time that he behalf like the most important king in all of the Yoruba land. This is really getting interesting.

    • @Omokehinde, The throne is defiled already, this is what you get when money is determining factor instead of dignity of the Yoruba race. All the King makers are vicariously responsible for this debacle we are witnessing from the palace of Oni of ife.They all got Gifts (egunje) cars and cash. That wedding is vilification of the Yoruba race. how can it be that in all of Ile Ife and environs there is no suitable lady fit for the King; even with the open secret of the lady now Queen no reasonable and enlightened man will even go there not to talk of marriage, knowing the legal implication but because we don’t generally uphold the law money and influence is played to usurp any move to address the issue. Each time i look back on the coronation and the wedding my heart just sink;i ask myself why? why?

  2. What ties does he even have with that corrupt man for him to travel all the way from Osun to Adamawa State just to visit him?

    Are his Advisers sleeping? Why can‘t they put him in the right track? Why does it seem as they have all become some decorated statues in the Palace?

    Maybe just maybe someday or anytime soon, before they knew it, the Ooni will schedule a visit to Wizkid or Aki & Pawpaw. His piece of bread not mine.

    I take a stroll…

  3. am not surprise, the crown was not made for him. his elder brother was suppose to be in the throne but his father manipulated it and he was choosing. its common sense, Oba of Benin, Emir of Kaduna, Obi of Onistha, etc. doe not bring themselves down by moving around begin for people to notice them.

    Onii of Ife is a Glutton

  4. Take a moment to remember that the king is very young and active with humanitarian agenda on his table. I give him a lot of credit and respect for his interpretation of his role. He eats and uses the toilet like we all do. It’s not healthy for anyone to wake up to sit and sleep in the palace 24/7. Again, Atiku, Obasanjo, Tinubu and the likes are not ordinary people. Barrack Obama can as well stay and dictate from the White House whereas he goes to other smaller countries around the world to make peace. We need to drop the idea of supremacy and face the reality. If other traditional rulers interpret their role otherwise, so be it.

  5. when i see pple cooments i laf.until u begin to see investment coming left and right to ife town you will respect is going up and down.what is value of a king,when all the youth in the town are jobless and poverty stricken and the kings lives in affluece .i am sure oba Adewusi agenda is total develpment and revitilisaton of Economic and political might of ILE IFE the cradle.

  6. Earring And Bimbo, you have spoken very well! Firstly lets remember that the new ooni of Ife is a very young man. He has a lot of strength, the strength of a YOUTH. The young monarch has got a great agenda for Ile Ife! He is a man called to Service!
    He is not just going around aimlessly but he has got an AGENDA! watch the turn around in ILE IFE within the next 3-5 years!!

  7. Don’t mind th criticism thy forgot to knw tht’ ths is nt th era of tired down opportunity, cn sitting down in th palace feed hm n hs family or bring development to th land?

  8. What do you expect,our ogar @ d top President Dullardi Buhari travels like the speed of light,today he is in china,next week usa,uk,our presido is on international touring,while our king ooni of ife is on local touring within different states of the federation.
    Somebody Shout APC,Chains.

  9. D yoruba’s should be able 2 describe or explain more better..
    But 4rm all indication his elderly chief cabinet should bring him 2 order if he z going contrary as demanded.

  10. Old things has passed,new things is taking the shape.We should out live our colonial mentality and embrace socialization.Visitation is not a crime but the throne is to be respected.

  11. The young man started on a very wrong note. I believe he lacks matured advisers to give him good counsel. There is no need for the Ooni to be attending every Tom, Dick and Harry’s birthday party as if he is a mere party freak. Every stupid move he makes only ends up diminishing the throne. Another mistake he made was to marry a highly recycled whore and call her a wife. I don’t see this man’s reign lasting too long because of his lust for life and his high level of greed. Let him take a cue from the Oba of Benin, and other highly respected kings in Nigeria and lead with decorum. I am yet to see maturity in him. I rest my case

  12. just cos he is a king doesn’t mean he shouldn’t visit people. human beings will always talk if he sit in d palace they will still talk. Abeg make una free d man there is a purpose for his visitation.

  13. He doesn’t know the value of the crown on his head. This is like giving torch light to Goat!

  14. I THINK IT IS HIGH TIME I SAID PIECE OF MY MIND ABOUT THE KING OF MY TOWN, ILE-IFE – OBA ADEYEYE OGUNWUSI JUMPING FROM TOWN TO TOWN.

    PLEASE, WE IFE INDIGENES LOVE YOU AS OUR YOUTHFUL OBA, BUT, PLS, DO NOT DESECRATE THE HIGHLY REVERED TOOL.

    OONI OF IFE IS AN ESTEEMED TOOL AND NOT TO BE CARRIED ABOUT FROM ONE POLITICIAN HOUSE TO ANOTHER ALL IN THE NAME OF MAKING PEACE.

    FINE, IF YOU ARE INVITED TO AN OCASSION WITH YOUR OLORI, NO PROBLEM. THE ADVISERS IN THE PALACE SHOULD PLEASE WAKE UP TO THEIR RESPONSIBILITIES AND EVEN THE SISTERS ( WHO LIKE POSING ON FB) AND THE FATHER SHOULD ADVISE HIM ON THIS ACCORDINGLY. THE IFES ARE WATCHING.

  15. Even me that is not a YORUBA man is not happy that, the person and the carrier of OOni of IFE Crown visited Atiku . that man is one of Nigerian Problem and Corrupt too. Pls Your Royal Highness with due respect iam not Happy seeing you visiting somebody like Atiku. Rather it sud be Atiku visiting you sir. That is why you can Never see the Sultan of Sokoto going to any how places.

  16. He is a highly respected king. He would always command his respect anytime any day irrespective of who he visits.The monarch is on the right track. That other monarchs have decided not to step out from their palaces doesn’t mean they’re doing the right thing.

  17. May be he’s trying to drop that crown in order to contest for the presidential seat who knows?. Before that he has to lobby through Northern Oligarchs like Artiku & co otherwise I don’t see the usefulness in that visit. That is what he’s doing right now. Everything is possible in my dearest Country.

  18. Uhm however the visiting might have missions, but baba try sometime to give them invitation ,yoruba wipe ipo agba ni ama nba agba,)long life baba.

  19. Ooni ife is like a pig when u give him a gold wears it to a dirty place. Alafin Oyo wll never descend so low to visit one of common thief in our economy. Well maturity comes with responsibility not with age

  20. me sef I wonder what kind of oni this is, how can A WHOLE ONI OF IFE BE THE ONE TO VISIT PEOPLE IN THIER HOMES RATHER THEY COMING TO PAY HIM HOMAGE IN THIS PALACE… HE HAS SO CHEAPEN IT.. ANYWAYS THE LAST ONI DID THE SAME, HE USED TO GO TO PARTIES EAT AND DRINK IN PUBLIC, THIS IS WHY I HAVE GREAT REPSECT FOR THE OBA OF BENIN, OBI OF ASABA, EREJUWA OF WARRI, THEY KNOW WHAT THEIR CROWN IS

  21. That’s is his own cup of tea. He is not God but still human being. He is not even governor neither is he President. He knows who he is and he can do whatever he likes

  22. The highly refered throne was difnified by the caliber of Late Aderemi who was simultaniously made headship of western region bcos of his clout and Late Olubushe brought candor,dignity,respect and awesome myth to the reign of Oni of ife,the very essense this young man is riding on tht makes pple respect and refered. Yes,he unify other kings in Yoruba land by coming down frm his olympian height to visit them,its ok ,it shows meekness and love for his pple.Visiting Nothern Emirs and Obis too is good unifying factor, by visiting Fmr President Obasanjo to show aprction is Omoluwabi reciprocate altribute. I witness Mama Awolowo book lunch/birthday d last od Ooni and mama’a outing two years back,the vintage Ooni Olubuse arival in Efunyela hall compound of Awos was electrified,his presense was mythical, the aura of his presense cant be quantied. Smthing marvelled me, u guess he bcame tired and thirsty and his entourage noted,about Six men covered him with heavy coudrol cloth(aso-aran) another passed undernet a golden aristocrat cup filled wt his choice wine,whn finished they uncover him .This was done bcos no body must see his teeth or mouth eating in public I was told. This is Vintage Ooni. Ife been the cradle of Yoruba land must be jelously guided by the kingsmaker.The youthful exorbirance is an escuse bcos he is nt the youngest to enthone in Yoruba land and elswhere,and much as we cant judge his choice of wifes we deserve smthing better than recicled street whore as Olori of Ooni. His father whether he will postruate or bend done or stood-down should talk to him wt the kingsmaker less he is seen as carpet-bagar, uppotunist,money misroad or smbody unbefiting of such hughest most coverted Obaship of Yoruba land in which Ooni position is a world phenomemal royal sanctity.

  23. This is a highly reverenced position, therefore should not be treated ordinarily. Perhaps he has a well meaning motive for doing this, nevertheless the status should not to say the least be degraded.

  24. Well,i wouldn’t know why people criticise easily on everything. If he seats in palace, of what benefit would that be.i would like to know the age bracket, town of where the people criticising are from because some of them might not come from ife nor have the knowledge of ife history but write for writing sake. Hope some people are not trying to bring politics to it because they have hatred for Atiku.for God sake this Oba is a business man,for him to have money at an early age legitimately shows how smart he his.he can not be said he is galivanting or going on a jamboree. He knows what he his doing.if you are in doubt,investigate before passing comment otherwise you will miss judge.am from ife am not complaining as far as it brings development to ife which is one of his cardinal objective .
