      In the words of the Koko Master, “love is a beautiful thing.”

    Ah dunno. Too much spirit talk for someone whois sitting on a trado stool that is likely built on fetish institutions.

    Thsee journalist need a lecture on cultural competencies. You are introducing the Ooni without prostration or bowing in anyway. Even though I am not a supporter of traditional worship, I think they should give honor to those who deserve it. Even simply standing up to introduce him would have shown some respect.

      Tsk Tsk some of the most ‘advanced’ countries in the world are monarchies with all the ceremony and pomp involved. Might want to use one of your several seats.

    Only God can make a king!
    I have read a lot of things about this new Oni but this is the first time I will listen to him speak and I am not disappointed.
    I think he is humble and will be a great leader.

    hater alert! hehehe
    but really, i think they shud have rehearsed this before his re-emergence into the limelight.
    too much talk. too much light. a too heavy staff. no mystery… yes, romanticise the damn process!

    Dear my oni Let God burden your heart and take away your peace until you pay my husband and his colleagues the money they paid you 4 years ago for subscribing for a property at your real estate firm.

      Funny enough, this allegation will be ignored but the conscience of a man cannot be ignored for too long ( unless his conscience is dead, like most Nigerian elite).
      Madam Patience, I will advise you and your husband to consider that money lost.

    Congratulation to his royal Highness Kabiyesi Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi!!

    May the spirit of wisdom be upon you, may she guide you as you sit on the throne and give you cutting edge strategies that God Almighty (The king of Kings) has placed in your heart – ideas and strategies that will trailblaze positive changes and improve the yoruba land and set a higher standard for other traditional lands Nigeria and in Africa as a whole – IJMN! Amen!!

    Oti shey se!! It can now be done!!

    Long live the King!
    God bless Ile Ife!
    God bless Yoruba lands!
    God bless Nigeria and Nigerians!!
