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
Ilorin didn’t have obas. Ilorin had baales.

Four baales already reigned in Ilorin as at the time of Afonja.

Afonja himself is the 4th baale of Ilorin.

The Portuguese named it Lagos de Kuramo because it's similar to an island of same name in their country


The real name of Lagos according to natives is Eko and it has nothing to do with Lagos de kuramo

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!
It was farm settlement in yoruba. it entered the Bini lexicon and it became a war camp, what kind of forgery is this bayi

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.

Eko- it is called in that form as the Binis would use it you don't have to twist it for it to make meaning in Benin and Esanland. And it means the same thing in Benin and Esan with several towns and villages scattered across Bini and Esanland with the prefix Eko, Ekosodin etc. Ekonunuame only meant one thing, the camp by the waters and it came from from Edo with the Portuguese text having nothing on it. you might have your Ereko but Eko is Edo and it came from the Binis and was not gotten from the twisted Ereko in yoruba. The context in which they are used does not allow that the Edo Eko was borrowed from the Yoruba. Eko strictly means war camp, what comes to an Edo man's mind the first time is war camp. (eke'niovbio-okhuo ye) interpreted literally to be Eko where the children of war are. children of war in this sense means soldiers, men who are built for war. Everywhere you see the prefix Eko in Bini, Esan and Lagos just know it was a camp a soldier's camp not an anyhow settlement. Ekosodin-a camp of soldiers with Oshodi as the head. Ekonunuame-a soldiers camp beside the water. The meaning is too streamlined in Usage in Edo to have been borrowed from the yoruba

(1) The island was named as eko by the Yorubas themselves. ~ Argue with D’Avezac (1845), p.26.

And it has been named as such for centuries before the Binis came. ~ Argue with A.C. Burns (1929), p.44.

Conclusion: Lagos island has been named eko for centuries prior to when the Binis came there. The Binis didn’t name Lagos island as eko.

(2) Lagos island is alternatively known locally till date as Eko-Aromire (as named after the Awori Chief, Aromire of the Lagos traditions).

Moreover, the explorer Ruy de Sequeira came to Lagos in the late-1400s — that is, about 100 years before Benin would have any relationship with Lagos.

Ruy de Sequeira — while in Lagos — encountered the local name Eko-Aromi-re (sometimes: Eko-Aromi-sa) which he transcribed as Curamo (sometimes: Korame). This was in the late-1400s.

Conclusion: Lagos island has been named eko for centuries prior to when the Binis came there. The Binis didn’t name Lagos island as eko.

(3) According to Lagos traditions, the island was first used as an agro-colony (Yoruba: ereko, contraction: eko) by the Awori Chief Aromire.

The Binis visited eko centuries after Chief Aromire had flourished. They arrived in the mid/late-1500s, then camped on eko after having gotten the approval of the native owners.

The fact of their camping on eko explains the first introduction of this word “eko” into their lexicon, and with the meaning of “camp” among them.

Conclusion: Lagos island has been named eko for centuries prior to when the Binis came there. The Binis didn’t name Lagos island as eko.

Eko- it is called in that form as the Binis would use it you don't have to twist it for it to make meaning in Benin and Esanland. And it means the same thing in Benin and Esan with several towns and villages scattered across Bini and Esanland with the prefix Eko, Ekosodin etc. Eko only meant one thing, the camp by the waters and it came from from Edo with the Portuguese text having nothing on it. you might have your Ereko but Eko is Edo and it came from the Binis and was not gotten from the twisted Ereko in yoruba
The word “eko” is also used in parts of Edo state. And so what!? Is that not to be expected?

Did I not already educate you (with verifiable evidence) that the Binis encountered this word on the island when they immigrated to Lagos in the mid/late-1500s?

How then is it surprising to you that same word then finds it way to parts of Edo state?? Are you serious?? cheesy

The context in which they are used does not allow that the Edo Eko was borrowed from the Yoruba. Eko strictly means war camp, what comes to an Edo man's mind the first time is war camp. (eke'niovbio-okhuo ye) interpreted literally to be Eko where the children of war are. children of war in this sense means soldiers, men who are built for war.

Ekonunuame-a soldiers camp beside the water. The meaning is too streamlined in Usage in Edo to have been borrowed from the yoruba
Having debunked you on all that I’ve debunked you on, and having also educated you on all I’ve educated you on; there are places by the same name “eko” in different parts of Yorubaland, viz. Ita-Eko in Abeokuta, Oko-Eko in Ijebu, Eko-Ende in Osun state, etc.

Cheers!

We understand your motives led by obsession to distort anything praising benin on yorubas
But history has been made already before you were born

Your obsession would just make you look foolish

This is the truth biko. Bini's place or kingdom was just a few kilometres. Your Oba was satisfied with that, stop claiming he ruled expansive lands. If he did, there are no festivals or days honouring the Oba, or even a place that venerates him in some way like some parts of Yoruba land or Igbo land, like what they do to their dieties or kings. grin

It’s the minority tribe syndrome, and inferiority complex, mixed with some delusions of grandeur that has led them to such mental disorders.

They also LITERALLY say that their king once ruled from Benin city to Congo to Europe, and all the way to Japan. I am not exaggerating.

If one would require IQ to understand you in matter that is as plain like this, then you are the daft one, he did not in anyway penetrate Esan that had strong populated towns precolonially and were close to these areas. rather he went to the extremes of Edo state to raid. He knew what you did not know
No! The daft one is the one who has a one-digit I.Q., i.e. UGBE634.

Do you understand this, or still no IQ? grin

Anyways, order your T-shirt — the classical onye-dot.

Nobody begged him if he went as far as just Ewu, he would have been decimated he knew that, that was why he restricted his foolishness and banditry act to extremes. Esan nor dae play. Ogendegbe knew better. Even if you have to get to Esan before Benin

Was Benin kingdom restricted to your Oba’s palace alone (and 1 or 2 surrounding places)? NO cheesy

Now, did Ogedengbe terrorize Benin Kingdom? YES.

Did the Oba of Benin plead with him so he doesn’t push further towards the palace? YES

Did Benin kingdom dare attack his troops (or country) after he was done with Benin kingdom? NEVER grin

Some of these places are farther from Benin than Lagos to Ibadan. Military capital was stationed in Esanland, your coward evaded Esanland, and before they came for him,he ran. Nobody begged him I repeat
