Just a visit to any of our national archives or museum will help many to know that this country has turned to something else. I once came across a list of how people donated palm oil, cocoa, iron scrap etc to support the 1st World War then.

Just imagine.

Civilization has reduced the hierarchical order among the royal class. The Olubadan as second class Oba was originally a 'Baale' title until it transmuted to an Oba when the Alaafin crowned the title. Despite this, the second class position still superseded some first class Obas.

Oba of Benin, Ooni of Ife and the others have actually lost their importance during the colonial era. Everything was centered around Oyo, Ibadan and Egba land. All what other Obas are doing in this modern period is to rewrite history and create some forms of importance and recognition to their royal class. By the way, where were the Soun of Ogbomosho, Ataoja of Oshogbo, Timi of Ede, in the scheme of things in those days?

That's not a list of South-West Obas, that's the list of old western region as you can see Oba of Benin on the list.

Then, that's a bullshit list of Obas. Oni of Ife should be the first on the list and Oraagun of Ila should not be on the list of second class Obas.
That list is a political rating of kings which must have been collated by a drunk Lugard, not the cultural rating of kings based on solid historical Origin.

Then, OP bia, where did you see color printing on glossy paper before independence? That snapped page is from recent time. If that were before independence, would have been at most a sheet of typed paper made from a mechanical typewriter.

I believe it's about economic activities in those areas under the King

Alafin had the largest territory to oversee

Alake had the second largest territory to oversee

Awujale oversaw most of ijebu, Ikorodu and Remo

Oni had the least of the territory to oversee

This is not the rank of how powerful they are, it’s just their salaries. Mind you, Alaafin was collecting more money than others is because the king oversee all the Oyo Empire which comprises of many towns of Yoruba land even to Benin republic.


Till today, Ooni of Ife still remain the number 1 Oba in Yoruba land and second to Sultan of Sokoto in Nigeria.


Argue with your balls
