See am trying to be neutral here am not here to find who just own the word oba

But am here to try to ascertain if benin and ife ever existed

Its not because yoruba are saying the word oba means king in Yoruba land that makes it correct

So many yoruba title can serve as king especially olu,

Why did oromiyan name benin king oba the exact title for kingship in yoruba land

The word oba should have been the king of ife title and not necessarily ooni if we are to believe ife is the originator of Yoruba people and thier language
The royalty of ife should be called oba from the start and not ooni because they are the owner and the originator of the word. then why would oromiyan name a strange tribe that came to ask for a king the original title for king in to a strange tribe...

Even you yourself are afraid to say that the word "Olu" means "King" --- Proving that you're simply struggling to deceive yourself, but you're also looking for who to assist you deceive yourself.

Oranmiyan should have used the Chinese word for "King" since he is a Chinese. Continue.

And who said the royalty of Ife was called Oba only halfway and not from the start?? These children sef.

Having been beaten black and blue on another thread, you came down here struggling and trying hard to deceive yourself.

May God help you to deceive yourself. Amen!

You mean this sort of common heritage as described below by fellow Yoruba historians.

You guys come here daily trying to use Benin to whitewash and unify yourselves. Former slaves and sacrificial goats are all forming princes and Omoluabi from Ife.

Regarding "food", the historian Samuel Johnson made the following claim in his book:

"The origin of the Ijebus has been variously given ; one account makes them spring from the victims offered in sacrifice by the King of Benin to the god of the ocean, hence the term Ijebu from Ije-ibu, i.e., the food of the deep. The Ijebus themselves claim to have descended from Oba-nita, as they say of themselves, "Ogietiele, eru Obanita," i.e., Ogetiele, servants of Obanita. But who was this Oba-nita? Tradition says he also was a victim of sacrifice by the Olowu or King of Owu." - Samuel Johnson, The History of the Yorubas, pp. 18-19

A historian, Tunde Oduwobi, gives an interesting analysis of this ascription of servile origins to the Ijebu in his publication "Early Ìjèbú history: An analysis on demographic evolution and state formation" (2006). Oduwobi also notes in that article and in another article that, of course, the Ijebu had their own completely different traditions about their origins.

You sound pained, bittered and possessed. That must have been the result of your various fruitless effort to manipulate history and tell it the way you want. Your describing "omoluabis" with many opprobrium terms is nothing to worry about. After all you've called your oba and his ancestors liars, betrayals, deceptors and mordern Judas with faulty sense of dignity. So, why must I be bothered?

So, you now believe Samuel Johnson and other Yoruba historians? Are they not the ones that colluded with the Oba to favor the Yoruba and debase the position of the "Oba"? Once a clown..

Ijebu, Egbas, Awori, Ado, Owu, Ekiti and other groups in the present Yoruba group share common heritage; they all are children of kaaro oojira. There was no point in time when one of those groups existed isolation.

Another annoying thing that is daily paraded here is [b]there was nothing like "Yoruba" until year 2020. [/b]Who actually cares to know that? That was was never a term of name that bring all Yoruba together until recently doesn't mean the different people inhabiting the present day Yoruba land were oblivious of one another.

Many things that transcend name bond the Oyos, egbas, ondos, Ekiti, Ijeshas, Owus etc. They related as brothers with common history, ancestor, culture, social, religious and political values.

I swearrugad that seems to be another cheap "go to" argument that they use these days when all other options are exhausted.
They be like "But "What is Yoruba? there was no Yoruba in 19--Gbirigidim". grin as if all the different clans of Yorubaland sprung from the earth like efo gbure vegetable.

All these people have always existed and were aware of one another. They share mythology, customs, societal structure, religion and spirituality, dialects within a spectrum, myth of origin, dynastic interlinking marriages, wars and tribulations E.tc together. The small Yoruba faction in Delta North which came from the eastern flank of yorubaland are known as Olukumi. Not so shockingly Yorubas in diaspora which mostly descend from people who were from the Western flanks of Yorubaland are also known as Lucumis in the Americas. shocked ... No waiit.... so these people actually existed prior to 1800? shocked shocked "Pretending to be shocked' angry

The position of the Oba of Benin is never debased whichever way you look at it. Whether you look at it from the Ife perspective or the Benin royal perspective, it puts the Benin royal stool in an enviable position which is different from people that were sacrificed to the gods by Benin as recorded by Yoruba historians themselves.

lol... there is an Ijebu in Owo Ondo state.. There is an Ijebujesha in Osun state. There are Owus scattered across Osun, Ogun, Oyo and Kwara. There are local Obas known as Owas in Osun, Ondo and Ekiti. There are Ogboni groups all over Yorubaland even up to Akutupa and Agbaja in Kogi near the Niger river. There is an Ife Odan, Ife Olukotun in Kogi, and another one Ife tedo close to Oke -Igbo in Ondo state. There is no group that does not know who or what Ogun (The god) is. At the centre of every Yoruba town is the Oba's market.
There is no Yoruba group that does not know what is an "Ebora" from Jebba in Kwara down to the Forcados Delta. There is an Ifon in Ondo (Omiima), One in Osun (Orolu) and yet another in Ogun.

Any difference that exists between any two Yoruba groups is not up to 1/10th of the commonalities. That is why it is VERY VERY hard for any Yoruba group to wake up tomorrow and for any reason say they are not Omoluabi.

I am not saying anything new or even trying to thinker with the truth, I am only just quoting Yoruba historians that said the Ijebus were the people that were sacrificed to the gods. This history was not written by the Benin or any other people but Yoruba historians themselves. The history is out there for all to see.

Ooni is a praise term meaning "One who owns", "Oba" means "King".

Pretending that this is too difficult for you to understand calls your education into question.

Again, "Oba" simply means "King". Not sure how many term this has to be said for you to get it.

So, your statement is as saying that Oranmiyan shouldn't have called the Benin ruler "King"

Does that make sense to you? undecided


For the umpteenth time, "Olu" ( just like "Ooni" ) is a praise title.

And it has a meaning to the following effect:

"The outstanding one", "the exemplary one", "the sovereign", "the lord", etc.

It's simply a praise title.

So, every Kingdom with some Yoruba features in it have this double element.

The word "King" i.e. "Oba" is used for the ruler because he is "King" obviously.

In addition to that, a unique traditional praise title is also used for him.

And for the Binis this traditional praise title is Omo N'Oba N'Edo.

To Summarize:

1. Ife ruler is an "Oba" whose praise title is "Ooni-Ife"

2. Oyo ruler is an "Oba" whose praise title is "Alaafin-Oyo"

3. Benin ruler is an "Oba" whose praise title is "Omo N'Oba N'Edo".

Etc.

This can't be clearer.

Reply to your comment is found within the comment below. But you were smart enough to flee from it earlier. grin


(1) That's the whole point, "sub-groups" --- In other words there is still some distinct identity despite belonging to the same broader group.

So, the "insults" are coming from outside that sub-group as your copy & paste have debunked you by mentioning that the Ijebus never had such to say about themselves.

(2) I am not sure where you manufactured it from that Johnson was a historian and that he belonged to the Ijebu subgroup. grin cheesy

On the contrary, the historian (Tunde Oduwobi) also mentioned in your copy & paste also agrees with me that the "insult" is from outside of the sub-group.

Moreover, Johnson was simply collecting different traditions floating around regardless of which subgroup is narrating it, and about which subgroup it is being narrated.

(3) Ife origin = White washing.??

Although this claim of yours is without any evidence or basis as usual, yet it shows that you somehow admit the primacy and ascendancy of Ife somwhere within you.

Ooni is a praise term nice.....
Just the way oba in benin is a praise term

But today when you call the name ooni the first thought will be king of ife mind you literally it is not but systematically it has represented king

Just like the Benin are saying that ogie is king
And oba is a praise word but later represented king of benin
Again if oromiyan had given the name oba to benin then what about the title like oon of ife, Alaafin of oyo and co
