Kinglist Of Yoruba Obas and their rankings by gregyboy(m): 3:42pm On Sep 11, 2020
1. Oba of Benin
Some say that the Oba of Benin, or Omo N’Oba, is the highest traditional ruler in Nigeria as he wields influence over the Edo people and is a popular figure in Nigeria. He heads the historic Eweka dynasty of the Great Benin Empire. It is also said that the Yorubas in Nigeria descended from the Benin people, hence the tittle Oba is being used to mean a king. The title of Oba was first created by Oba Eweka I, Benin Empire’s first ‘Oba’, who ascended power between 1180 and 1300. His son, grandson and now his great-grandson, Ewuare II were traditional rulers of Benin in modern-day Nigeria.it is to be noted that The oba benin would not be totally regarde as a Yoruba oba from historical viewpoints, but due to the fact that oba of benin for political reasons in the past regarded himself as one, on the bases of Diplomacy and friendship we have no choice than to honour it and regard him as one, the oba of benin rule extended to the present ogun state, lagos, ekiti oyo, osun and ondo tho much of his influence were minimum in some states lije oyo, osun and ogun but that would not be true for the others oba ghat to kpere ise......


2. Ooni of Ife

The Ooni of Ife is the most powerful king in Yoruba land. The current Ooni of Ife is Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi . According to the Alake of Egbaland, the Ooni is the first of the five principal Obas in Yorubaland just like the Sultan of Sokoto is the highest ruler in the northern part of Nigeria. This is because his supremacy dates back to the origin of the Yoruba tribe. He is also one of the most influential figures in Nigeria and he recently married Queen Morenike Naomi Oluwaseyi, a prophetess.


3. Alaafin of Oyo
He is the second in line in the ranking of Yoruba monarchs in Nigeria, Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi III was born 15 August 1938 and he is the current Alaafin, or traditional ruler, of the Yoruba state of Oyo and righful heir to the throne of its historic empire. His dynasty dates back to the old Oyo empire which recognizes him as the emperor of the Oyo empire. He is among the list of the richest Yoruba king in Nigeria


.4. Alake of Egbaland
Fourth on the list of ranking of obas in Yorubaland is the Alake of Egbaland . He is the paramount Yoruba king of Egba, a city in Abeokuta, Ogun State, southwestern Nigeria. Egba consists of Egba Alake, Owu kingdom rule by the Olowu of Owu Kingdom, Oke-Ona and Gbagura. He was the one who cleared the air concerning how the monarchs in Yoruba land should be ranked starting from the Ooni of Ife to the Awujale of Ijebuland.


5. Awujale of Ijebuland
He is the least on the list of 5 powerful obas in Yoruba land. His kingdom, Ijebu (also known as Jebu or Geebu) was a Yoruba kingdom in pre-colonial Nigeria. It was formed around the fifteenth century. According to legend, its ruling dynasty was founded by Obanta of Ile-Ife. The current Awujale of Ijebuland is Sikiru Kayode Adetona.

There is a recent tussle as to who is superior between the Oba of Lagos and the Ooni of ife (Yoruba Emperor). This should not be so as history backs the Ooni as the most superior paramount ruler of the Yoruba speaking people.

You have to keep shut, am ikwerre and i know better even tho am not benin


That stupid fraudulent ooni who is tinubu boy, you want to equate to the oba of benin

Historical wise the oba of benin controlled the entire southwest unlike the ooni that was birthed and brought to life to life by the pens of samuel johson in 1987 when he wrote the history of the yorubas, Oduduwa happened to have come alive from 1897 after samuel johnson had breathed life into him through his pen

Well, only due to politics will they even rank Ooni higher than Alaafin. In terms of influence on Yoruba language, culture and influence and Yoruba as seen today. Oyo has been numero uno for 350 years in Yorubaland. A time when record keeping had become easier.

Around 250 years after Benin became an empire, Oyo became the only Yoruba nation that rose to earn the mutual respect of Benin. Both even agreeing to Otun-Ekiti treaty later.

Awujale throne is way ahead of Alake. Both in age and historical influence. One of the most noble and self respecting royal stools in Yorubaland.

You never hear an Awujale making unguarded and ridiculous statements like several Alakes have done to seek attention. Educational advantage benefitted Egbaland to produce many political and economic leaders. Boosting Alake too.

Olowo of Owo should get a mention. Being close to expanding Benin and retaining de facto independence despite conquest shows a high level of diplomatic skills and as gateway to Yorubaland.

Owo is perceived by other Yoruba as being too Edo influenced and is often left out. Yet it produced Chief Michael Ajasin, the architect of Acton Group free education that Yoruba use to claim over educated and over sophisticated today.

Action Group was even launched at Olowo Palace courtesy of Chief Ajasin and HRM Olowo Sir Olateru-Olagbegi II.

Like Owo, Yoruba people despise Eleko's proud Benin heritage even more. So they often call him a landless Oba. Yet the stool is approaching 500 years now. Lagos is the jewel of SW.

Lagos made most of the Yoruba people you see today. Be it as a business or political base.

If you feel pained,come claim Lagos since you so much admire the people and the land.

As far as I am concerned, you re nothing but an intellectual illusion because you have no knowledge of Yoruba history but kept peddling lies online. Anyway, you are a glorified Pseudo Oviedo attaching sentiments to a null and void information.

We dont need lecture over Spain's city's because we are familiar with history and cities.So stay put and bear your ancestral identity . After all, even Oba Bini 1896-97 acknowledged the fact that Oranmiyan, was a white man!���. See people, see inferiority complex.

Mugu he never mentioned oromiyan mumu start talking history the way you saw it dont be putting your own version repeat what was written in the quote if possible

Did they mention oromiyan dont get me pissed

Oromiyan came into benin history when ooni and Alafin were having their supiority issue after 1920

The earliest benin ife myth started as i quote

Eweka had come from ife and displaced the edo people and anyone he found weak he wared with anyone he found strong he made a truce with. This was a quote from 1903

which was not involving oromiyan, but after years when the alafin had some issues with ooni, inother for the ooni to settle alafin of oyo after his forceful removal as the chairman of chief of council in then former western region,
Then benin-ife myth which was only involving ife, benin, eweka became modified to accompany the alafins this time

The quote was oromiyan who is alafin Ancestor conquered and ventured into benin and begot eweka

So when you are making silly statements becareful not to misinform people


Start reading and stop talking i feel repulsive towards the yorubas-benins wannabe because don even read and they dont know

Dont mind the mugu rating ooni who was a native doctor in ife, to alafin who ruled an empire , this is one reason they need the benin history to survive because they cant get their fact right


When alafin was made the chairman of western chiefs councils the other yorub monarchs revolvated because they feared alafin rankings on them, but they supported the fraudulent ooni ife conspiracy which says they are all sons of oduduwa, because with ooni narrative no one will be ranked but all of them will be seen as equals

Last last they were still ranked, they fell for it,

When alafin saw he had lost his support he settled for second displacing the oba of benin who was initially second to third, but the oba of benin didnt even complained because the position he was given even tho he didnt speak yoruba made him glad

At the time EWEKA II had little choice. In fact it was his doggedness and tenacity that made restoration of monarchy possible. He had to learn diplomacy very quickly without the benefit of a father in the Palace to learn from or Western education.

But Oba Akenzua's education at King's College Lagos and knowledge of Yoruba language prepared him for the battle with Yoruba that was to come. He must have been incensed by claims of Yoruba supremacy right from college days.

Therefore he got his way leading Midwest out of Western Region.

As smart as Oba EWEKA II was, he must have foreseen a time that Edo and Delta would again be on its own. Maybe not as two states today but still.

Oba Erediauwa had even more access to the knowledge of SW ways working as Perm Sec of Cabinet Office in Lagos in Gowon regime, ministry of health and others before that.

The current Oba has synthensized all the above along with foreign diplomatic service. We are even in a better place now.

So when you are making silly statements becareful not to misinform people


Start reading and stop talking i feel repulsive towards the yorubas-benins wannabe because don even read and they dont know
If he didnt mention Oranmiyah,who then was the father of Eweka 1 ? You are intellectually dehydratd.

Lol, i will advice you to take back that insult, i should be dishing it to you....


Read and assimilate you fool, i told you how oromiyan came into the story, you should use head to know that,

In the first myth which was not regarding oromiyan it means that eweka11 was a direct son of oduduwa, the arrival of alafin into the myth made him Oronmiyan son


The very first ancient myth from the yorubas was
Oduduwa gave birth to all the yoruba tribes which included benin, which formed the present state the yoruba people occupy in nigeria, this myth was told to avoid anyform of royal hierarchy between yoruba king


I cant be explaining your own history for you go and read and stop following yourself here


You were one of the person praising TAO11 earlier

Desperados.....

You Edo people keep confusing yourselves since 1897.

You all can’t answer the simplest question of your history for over hundred years now.

I will repeat this simple question here again, and let’s see what you all think.

Who is the first Oba of Benin? grin grin

Ovbi’ Edo, learn to be responsible. Stop blaming others for your fathers’ confusions. cheesy

The Yorubas’ account is clear: Oranmiyan pronounced that his son Eweka I be made the first Oba of Benin and so was it.

The overwhelming traditions of the Binis themselves agree with this. Yet you all still look elsewhere for who to blame for your fathers’ confusions.

Whatever confusion you all have amongst yourself regarding your own account should remain your confusion and not be blamed on others.

How Binis count numbers:

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 40. grin cheesy If you know you know.

(1) Yoruba accounts said Oranmiyan gave birth to EwekaI.

(2) But one Benin account which I cited said —— gave birth to EwekaI.
