June 22, 2016 – Pictures: Americans Call 911 As Nigerian King, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, The Ooni Of Ife Performs Rituals At Washington DC African Art Museum

Controversial Ile Ife King, Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi caused a mild drama yesterday in Washington DC while performing some traditional rituals.

The monarch visited DC Smithsonian Museum of African Art on Tuesday. After the conclusion of the tour, Ifa worshipers who’re part of his entourage staged a scene in front of the African Art museum.

The traditionalists were performing rituals when passersby who saw smoke rising from the museum dialed 911.

Firefighters immediately came to the scene to quench the fire only to discover that traditionalists who had earlier obtained a permit were performing rituals.

The firefighters reportedly left the scene immediately after talking to some officials of the African Art museum.

  1. Lolzzz! I no blame anybody shaa.

    See dedication on the part of the fire fighters! They are just at your beck and call. This is only posible where there are good roads.

  2. A great nation! Always prepared for eventualities. If it were for Naija if the entire building likes let it burn down who cares. Perhaps when it has burned half way you see fire service men coming with lame excuses of no water.

  3. These guyz are at ur service 24/7, just a fon call and they respond immediately. This country is well organised

  4. WHAT ARE ALL THESE!!!! IN AMERICA PERFORMING DIRTY THINGS,,,,,, DISGRACING AFRICA, YOU CAN DO WHATEVER YOU LIKE, AMERICANS HAS NO DIME OF RESPECT FOR YOU…… GO HOME!! GO TO YOUR TOWN ONNI!! PLEASE WE ARE TIRED OF ALL THESE THINGS YOU ARE DOING…. WHAT ARE ALL THESE. ACT LIKE A KING PLEASE.

  5. the fact remains that this kind of rituals has not been performed in Nigeria since these Onii of Ife took the title.

    after seein all this you’ll still see some pastor going to him to visit him without delivering or preaching to him about kingdom of God. Trust me they are seeking for recognitions from Obama. Onii u no go see Obama

  6. which kind embarrasment b dis na,mr king let me give u serious warning,dont u ever try dis nonsense again, why did u go to a civilized country to embarras our nation say u r display uncivilized dirty rituals.

  7. Bullshit of the highest order…its really a suprise they couldn`t recognise neatness of the enviroment to hv messed it wit disgusting act.

  8. This is great.For Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi to have performed such Yoruba transnational rights on American soil, l am very proud of him. I can guaranty readers that Americans will be more proud and respectful of our rich heritage. To those who are having different opinions, go and study your origins and be very proud of whom you are.

    • Talking about [email protected], there is nothing to be proud of in a ritual that venerates a lifeless god. That is idolatory, and only an idol worshipper would be delighted in this. A true Christian will never look upon this fetish show with approval.

      NB: No offence to the Yorubas. Every culture should be celebrated provided that it does not project a rival god to the Living God in heaven. This one does.

  9. Stupidity to say the least. Who made this thing the leader of the Yorubas? This is what happens when something is sold to the highest bidder rather than earning it. Rubbish.

  10. You guys have said it all, he should be question and lecture cuz his father didn’t behave the way this man is behaving . Fly all the village men to us to do rubbish things , very funny to me my brothers

  11. This is embarrassing and shameful. Performing rituals in America, for what? Only a phone call and firefighters were there in a jiffy. If it had been a real fire they would have put it out immediately. But in Nigeria, they will not come until the fire burns out. For wasting the time the firefighters would have used to attend other calls, the organizers should pay the cost for their wasteful journey. I think the Ooni have seen the benefits of good governance: good roads, availability of water and other agents of firefighting, dedication to work etc and lets hope when he gets back to Nigeria he will have the ears of those in authority whose duty is to embezzle public funds.

  12. There is nothing shameful by worshipping what you believe in in another man’s land. A Christian who travels out of his country does not hold off prayer until he returns to his own. Rather, he even wants to make his God known to other people.

    Hence this is almost like evangelism, and should be commended on this note. The only defect it has is that the god it preaches is dead, and this outweighs whatever nobility we think may be found in that ritual.

  13. KUDOS TO D ONI -HE IS TRYING TO MAKE D WORLD TO REMEMBER THAT ILE-IFE IS STILL EXISTING IN NIGERIA. AT LEAST, IF ILE-IFE CAN,T BE RECOGNISED FOR CRUDE OIL AND AGRICULTURE ,IT HAS BEING RECOGNISED FOR ” RITUALS ” DIS ONI TOO GET RITUAL-SWAG ! KUDOS – DON,T INSULT D ONI OOOOO BCOS ALL YOU WANT IS CHANGE, AND CHANGE IS IN D PROCESS .

  14. oyibo i respect oooh , under five minute after telephone call…America is wonderful. peoples lives are very important to them..this common scene sends a strong message back to Nigeria.

  15. ALL THE OYINBO ARE PRETENDERS, THEY ALWAYS PRETEND TO BE JESUIT, AND IT IS ALL LIES. THEY HAVE THEIR OWN RITUAL, SOME OF THEM ARE PAGANS.

    ALL RELIGION STARTED FROM PAGANISM.
    KING OF GREECE { CONSTANTINE }WHO PROMOTED CHRISTIANITY WAS A PAGAN, AND HE ADDED SOME OF THE PRACTICE INTO CHRISTIANITY.

    THE OGBONI ARE THE FOUNDER OF NIGERIA CHRISTIANITY. THEY TOO PERFORM RITUAL BEHIND CLOSED DOOR.

    SO WE SHOULD NOT CONDEMN OUR CULTURE, BECAUSE ALL THE OYINBO ARE FULL OF VOODOO TOO. THEY GO TO BABALAWO, AND ALL OTHER PSYCHIC . THE FBI ALWAYS RELY ON PSYCHIC INVESTIGATORS.

    THE OYINBO HAVE THEIR OWN CHARMS TO KILL AND DRINK BLOOD. THEY ARE VAMPIRE BEHIND CLOSED DOOR.
