I just read it over again, in fact I saw it as a big contradiction when he claimed that Ilorin does not belong to the Aláàfin yet claimed at the same time that he and others in Ilorin are from Ọ̀yọ́

Going forward always resist being deceived by cheap frauds.

A Benin person has no capability for truth even if s(he) tries hard. And the OP is a Benin boy.

Read the facts below as copied from my comment on another thread: https://www.nairaland.com/6409169/what-does-ukoruama-lagos-mean#100295968

I have discussed this at length in one of my comments on Lagos history while citing the relevant early accounts.

The earliest relevant available sources all point to the fact that the name Èkó is purely of Yoruba origin, from the word Eréko — also called Ìgbèríko.

Eréko is the Yoruba term for a settlement which is used mainly for agriculture, and under the ownership/control of another (neighboring) settlement.

The background to the name Èkó (contraction of Eréko) based on the earliest received traditions of Lagos history is that this has been the island’s name even before it was populated.

The island of Èkó and the adjacent islands (of Ìddó, et al.), as well as all the surrounding lands are — noted in the traditions — to be the aboriginal property of the Awori sub-group of the Yoruba ethnic group.

While they built town settlements on these lands all the way from Ìṣẹri to Ìddó island and elsewhere; the Awori kingdom of Ọ̀ttọ̀/Ìddó reserved the adjacent island (i.e. Èkó) for agricultural purposes — pepper farming and fishing to be precise.

As such, this adjacent island became an erèko of the Awori kingdom of Ọ̀ttọ̀/Ìddó. The name Èkó (viz. Erèko) therefore resulted from the initial purpose for which this adjacent island was originally set aside.

A certain Awori prince (from Ìddó) by the name Arómirẹ́ is said, in the accounts of Lagos history, to have been responsible for pioneering the usage of this island for agriculture purposes.

One of the several names by which this island is known till date comes from the personal name of this Awori prince (viz. Chief Arómirẹ́) due to his pioneering feat.

Besides the names Ereko and Eko by which this island is remembered till date, it is also still remembered by the name Èkó-Arómirẹ́ (from: Eréko-Arómirẹ́, i.e. Arómirẹ́’s agro-colony).

This island is also sometimes called Eko-Arómisá. The word Arómi- (lit: ‘the one who flees on sighting water’) is a wordplay (or pun) on the actual name Arómi-rẹ́ (lit: ‘the one who is in friendly tune with water on sighting it).

The seemingly strange name Korame or Kuramo which is often found in early European accounts of Lagos is not strange at all.

It is no more than the typical early Europeans’ sloppy rendering of the name Èkó-Arómi-rẹ́ — which is an early name of this island.

Lagos island is still alternatively known locally till date as Èkó-Arómi-rẹ́.

Also, the name Eréko also still survives till date on the island. It is well known and unhidden.

In the light of the foregoing accounts of Lagos history, it is only expected that one or more of all these Yoruba names of this island (i.e. “Ereko,” “Eko,” “Eko-Aromi-re,” etc.) would have naturally found its way into the lexicon of the Ijaws, the Binis, etc. — since each of these group had settled on this very island at some later point.

Don’t be bothered or persuaded by the propaganda of the ‘lesser tribes of Nigeria’. Yoruba is their dream and standard. Deep down, they actually want to be nothing but Yoruba.

Cheers!


PS:
Korame/Kurame did not flow from Benin to Lagos as he is fraudulently pretending.

We know this because of the two following facts:

(1) The Portuguese documented this name w.r.t. the Lagos lagoon when they visited the Lagos region in the late 1400s.

(2) The Binis didn’t have any connection with Lagos until approximately one hundred years later — mid/late 1500s.

(3) The name ‘Korame’ was therefore known in Lagos as at the 1400s — and the Portuguese records of it is older than its Benin usage.

The Yoruba word is “Ereko” (one word).

As a fraudulent Benin boy, you wrote Ere-Eko.

Therefore, you’re a fraud! shocked
————————

Even “Eko” was named by the Yorubas ~ D’Avezac 1845, p. 26. wink

Also, the island has been named “Eko” before any immigrant moved there to live. ~ Alan. C. Burns, 1929, p. 44. wink


In other words, the ‘Benin-named-Eko’ idea is a big fat myth. grin

So, it’s a lose-lose for Benin frauds like you. cheesy

No, you didn’t tell us how “Ereko” is an Edo word. So do that now, fraud.

What does “Ereko” mean if it’s an Edo word? grin
—————————
On the other hand, I have already spelt out the meaning of “Ereko” — if only you weren’t dead-scared to read.

Can you tell us how Benin is forged from a Yoruba word and How oranmiyan made Igidomigodo jetisson Ogiso system to Oba.

Before I go, can you once again tell us what oba, ogun, oya, iyooba means in Edo language.

Those tales of "it's red" "it's shinny" and of course "shinning Seki" seem interestingly boring. Can you tell it again in a more plausible way.

facts still remains that the Binis are the kingmakers of Lagos any day, any time.

Yorubas are also the kingmakers of Benin itself.

The Oba of Lagos Territory is between idumota and Obalende on Lagos Island and doesn’t even include Ikoyi on the other half of the Island.

Lagos Island belongs to the Yoruba Awori Aromire Family who also own parts of Ojora

I know that he's mixing truth with lies because he's trying to argue against having Ọba in Ilorin, for a truth there was never an Ọba in Ilorin but the Hadandawa actually sound plausible. Maybe we've not been looking at it from that point of view

Why would there be an Oba in Ilorin when Afonja was already an Aare Oona Kakanfo which was a Position that was next to the Alaafin himself in Position,Authority and Power

The Aare Position was already higher than almost all Ethnic Oyo Obas themselves except Alaafin

When Kurunmi was Aare Oona Kakanfo there was a Yoruba Proverb

Kurunmi pe O , Oun lo d’Ifa


Kurunmi is calling you , and you are still there calling on your Gods


Meaning: Kurunmi is to be feared more than your Gods you are calling on
