The Ooni of Ife today received Aare crown from the Olojudo of Idoland a day after the palace chiefs secretly crowned him as the new King of Ile Ife.

Those present at the presentation of the crown were Oba Bankole Ojutalayo, Prof. Adeyemi Aderibigbe, Alhaji Ade Akanni and extended family members of the king.

The young monarch look totally different from the way he was about 2 weeks ago. #stress factor

  1. “Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown” as the saying goes. Don’t forget he had to pass through 200 “ile agbara” (power houses),not to mention all the stuff he had to swallow to empower him. Long live Ooni Ogunwusi, long live Ile-Ife. May your reign be peaceful and bring prosperity to Ile-Ife, the cradle of Yoruba land, amen.

  2. Are they (Oba’s) relevant nowadays? What is their role in today’s society? I don’t mean any harm just asking. Gone are the days when the Oba’s can use their position to make positive changes in our society but now some of them are into business and go for the highest bidder. This guy should have put more effort in his business and stay away from these rituals and initiation into cultism. Anyway congratulations on your coronation as a new Oni of Ife.

  3. I guess it’s tradition. We cannot do away with all our tradition completely, in the name of civilization. Don’t forget that one too has its setbacks, such as gay and lesbianism (God forbid). Every cloud has a silver lining.
