Ooni of Ife reveals Adam & Eve were Black People created in Ife | WATCH



The Ooni of Ife Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi has shed light on the connection between the creation of humans and Yoruba people.

Creation started at Ife, the Ooni said, and Garden of Eden is located in Ife.

The Yoruba people are the first descendant, he said, as Adam and Eve were black people created in Ife.

He added that churches are a construct of the Yoruba people, and Africans were deceived by the whites.

Watch him speak below:

      The thing about Nigeria is there are those who believe in her; the actual’ nigerians and then there those who at some point migrated there.

    Every ethnic group has their own description of how the world began, same way the word “god” is different in every language but may be similar..

    In my opinion, Africa is the garden of Eden since it has all the natural resources and human resources but the current human resources have been deceived by “whyte lies”…

    If you are of African descent Jesus is not your savior, none of the middle eastern or european gods are your savior, they are fictional and false gods made to make you limit yourself to the europeans or arabs…

    the word for god in your indigenous languages is what you are meant to be worshiping..

    I don’t know why this particular Ooni is just struggling so much. First, it was the ridiculous claim of Yorubas being “Omo Noah bi” instead of Omoluabi, then, Orisas became angels to him. Now, characters of Jewish mythology are from his village. The rivers than border the garden probably course through his backyard and all the names recorded in Numbers have orikis. I’m guessing that is why Yoruba and Yiddish are so similar. Baba should be put on a mic-free fast till he has caught up on his history. When the colonizer has left and the mind refuses to be freed, what shall the righteous do?

    This aggressive adoption by association betrays a truth about many Africans- we do not feel we are enough and are weary of creating something worth adopting by the world. Read your Old Testament and see how far the Jews have come by accepting that their past is unchangeable and their present, worth improving. Same with the Japanese, even Kurds. Ooni would rather queue behind the deity of another culture and reduce his heritage to a non existent appendage of a foreign, imported culture than to do what the inheritors of the heritage he envies did- read then repair, rebrand and promote what is theirs.

    This is not the first time so called custodians of African culture are showing their low self esteem and allergy for facts. When Ajayi Crowther translated the Bible, he did not find any Yoruba word to substitute for angel (as none exists). When he wanted to translate the word devil or satan however, he did not settle for “Satani”. He betrayed professionalism and used Esu, which is absolutely nothing in common with the biblical fallen angel. He saw his own heritage as dirty enough that he insisted on a match.

    I’ve yet to hear any serious Buddhist or Hindu voice say that the records of who begat who in the Bible are a link to his ancestry and today, the positive lessons from their sacred texts are practiced and respected the world over, be it mindfulness or yoga. I don’t see the Japanese, Indians or Native Americans laying claim to another group’s heritage or looking to root themselves in it but Africans continue to kill and con themselves with/ for the myths and religions of other people. Blacks would always want to queue at the back of someone else’s history or even mimic the heritage completely and leave their own uninspected, unimproved and disrespected then expecting the whole world to start returning artifacts that they themselves had rejected as “satanic and demonic” and sold long before.. This bastard-like complex has to be addressed- it pervades the entire continent, from palaces to poorer dwellings. You are enough and you can improve what you’ve got.

      I agree with you. It boils down to an inferiority complex syndrome.
      This Ooni of Ife is an extremely conflicted and confused man. He’s trying too hard to change the typical narrative of African kings. Quiet, mysterious and inaccessible. However, he’s become too lousy, and an attention seeker. His personal life is an ongoing drama. I’m surprised, he hasn’t acted yet because his life will be a good Nollywood movie.
      One minute, he says he’s a Christian, another minute he’s in the mosque, and he definitely practices traditional beliefs/rituals(it’s inevitable being a yoruba king).
      Now, Adam and Eve were Yorubas from ile ife. It sounds more like a joke. I understand Europeans have whitewashed everything including how Jesus looked but claiming Adam and Eve were Yorubas is unnecessary.

    I like that he hasn’t rushed to take another wife. Looks like Ooni is getting to know himself all over again. Also he seems to have cut back on public appearances which is good. Maturity .

    There was no Adam & Eve to begin with. Creationism should be banned, it is so counterproductive, breeds racial and religious intolerance and idiocy. The story is not even biologically sound.
    Believing the world TWICE (Adam & Noah) got populated via intergenerational sex and incest!?!?

    We have present day evidence of the birth abnormalities that exist when a generation of just 4 engage in inter generational sex (Colt incest clan in Australia). Yet people still base their religions on a fictional incestuous family tree because apparently that is better than evolution.
