    Congratulations to future Ooni and his Olori to be. I like the fact he is getting married to a Yoruba lady. There should be an edict mandatng all Princes of key Oduduwa monarchies like Ooni, Alaafin, Alake, Awujale,Deji, Ewi,Soun, Oloffa, Ataoja, Timi, Osi oke ona-egba, Owa-obokun, Olubadan, Oba isale eko and others (not necessarily in order of heirarchy) – to marry only ladies of Yoruba descent ONLY. She could be from Benin Republic, Brazil, Cuba, America or anywhere in the world where Yorubas migrated to-but she must have Oduduwa blood flowing through her veins i.e her forbears must be Yorubas. This is a way to fully preserve our culture, heritage and lineage from dilution. Argue on your timeline, if you must.

      Gbite is not even 10th in line. Lmao. Afi futture Ooni naa. E ma tan ara yin. The next Ooni is not going to be from this family.

      In other news, why do Nigeriaan brides always look the same? Very preditable. You see one bride and you have seeen all Nigerian brides

      Na wa for you o! Generally all these royal pple dont even marry outside their tribe, and in case u dont know it will be another families turn. Their might not be another olubuse sijuade in another four generations. This is not english monarchy. All the families of the sons of d first oba will have it rotate around their houses. Dts why they ask in yorubaland nibonile baba re ni le yi, kiloriki yin.
      And pls drop d bigotry babe, its not who we are.

    • whatwillbewillbe

      August 3, 2015 at 6:48 am

      Pls could u translate that? I’m really learning a lot abt the culture since the demise or no demise of the oba. I also learnt that the alafin of Oyo and the Oba of Ife can’t be at the same occasion together. I wonder if that’s true

    • Me1983

      August 2, 2015 at 7:54 pm

      Is it not a shame that you are advocating making a law to force these men to marry women of Yoruba origin?? Lmao!!?? Have Yoruba women become so undesirable and unwanted that a law has to be made to force their ‘princes” to marry their women. In trying to bathe and perfume your bigotry, you also ended up insulting Yoruba women!! Kudos! Argue with your new found madness.

      Were ni eleyi O. Does the fact that Yorubas are the most diasporic group not also mean that they have accommodated and imbibed several cultures and traditions along the way? Is this same openness (though borne out of greed at certain points in history) not the reason we are more prosperous and culturally diverse than most others? Our bloodline is very diluted, and we’re proud of it. Please don’t set us back 600 years with this stupid comment of yours, you troll.

    I love Dolapo. I really do, her demeanor from Moments with Mo. The chemistry she had with Bolanle was off the hook, a great presenter a pretty woman.
    She seems always calm and sure of herself and that’s why I like her

      It’s not our saying. It is borrowed. I love you to the moon and back: it means I love you more than anything/forever/It’s showing the “length” of your love. Its a long way away to the moon and back.

    @ijebujesha take several seats biko. When will Africans stop all this…u must marry from this particular state,tribe/ back ground? Wen wld u learn its not Abt race, cultural belief, ethnicity or tribe? It’s abt finding someone u love and understand and can spend d rest of ur life with in PEACE.So if the almighty prince had married an American or say an Indian or even an Igbo woman u for flog am 24 abi? Kcheeeeew. Smh ignorance is really a disease. Get well soon!

    • Babs

      August 3, 2015 at 12:31 am

      It is not peculiar to Africans. Royal blood lines in Europe, Asia and the Arabia are seriously constrained with respect to choosing a spouse. Recall recent and not too recent history in British royalty as regards marriage/ romantic relationships.

  16. Ayeee

    August 2, 2015 at 6:48 pm

    At the person that said all Nigerian brides look the same. This is a traditional wedding. Key word being TRADITION. We are people of culture and a wedding ceremony is not generally the best place to push the envelope or you run the risk of looking ridiculous. Save that mindset for Halloween. There is beauty in doing things properly and the way it is meant to be done. Yoruba traditional attire is a classic look/outfit worn by brides of Yoruba descent. So if they all look alike, well gee captain obvious. That is kind of the point!

    That henceforth, every yoruba man must marry fellow yoruba woman to avoid pollution and contamination of the yoruba culture! Oro oshi!

  18. Amh

    August 2, 2015 at 9:02 pm

    @ijebu. The yoruba royal families do not marry outside their tribes. Other tribes yes i know. Wonder what happened to the edo young king that schoooled abroad . Brought a whitewoman as his queen. He was adamant she will be his queen. The longthroat white woman no wan gree too . But the elders shouted sacrilege. Wonder if its been rectified or the whitewoman is their queen. Anyway to each its own. Congrats to dolapo and the prince.

      August 2, 2015 at 10:26 pm

      What are you talking about? ‘Edo young king’ does t exist. The current of Oba of Benin is 92 and his wives are all Bini.

    Yoruba brides please oomph it up… see one see them all. Haba
    And how people use banke meshida or bimpe onakoya for bridal makeup is beyond me.
    Bimpe is great fro runway, editorialand advertorial shoots not bridal I repeat O NOOOOT BRIDAL
    And Bankeneeds to UP her game I mean shes one of the fore runners have a signature BM something makeup artists like Beautyandbeholder jaga beauty tintsandpro etc are taking over….

      Na wa for pple and their bad belle on d internet. So bcos u had some experience wt her mum dt means no guy shld marry her abi. Youre definitely just a jealous b****ch. And her sister married cobhams dt blind musician – dt tells me d girl was raised right. Not a lot of women wld do dt, or even be allowed to by their family. Gerroura here.

    August 3, 2015 at 2:08 am

    At the above princess. Kindly tell us which yoruba kingdom the prince married from the east. The prince gangan not one born outside to mistress. Banke meshida makeup is predictable. But shes a pioneer and hence she courted by the rich and famous. Shes earned her spot anyway. I reckon shes seen as the best in elite bridal circle.

    • huh

      August 3, 2015 at 5:28 am

      Gbam ! Agreed!

      Ooni’s first son married an Hausa woman.
      Not all elites like Banke’ s makeup, other people are doing makeup for more elites.

    August 3, 2015 at 9:53 am

    So the Ooni of Ife is really dead. & the Oba of Benin is also dead, sure it will be announced at the end f this month though since it will be 3months then. BN, u welcome!

  30. Amh

    August 3, 2015 at 11:58 am

    Welcome to lagos grace. I presume you moved from village or albeit you dont read bellanija. That is if you live abroad. My golden coin is you just moved from the village. Hence you dont know who the couple are. Hope lagos is not too intimidating and too rowdy for you.
