You contested against 40 other princes of Iwo but you emerged winner. Did Ifa pick you at that time?

Tell me one king that Ifa picked in Yoruba land. The person who is picked by the governor is the one God has ordained to be the king. There is no Oba in Yoruba land that will say Ifa picked him. It is after the governor picked you that you now become a king. Ifa doesn’t have any power over the governor. May be you watch too much Nollywood movies. Even during our forefathers, they would make the most powerful person at that time king. At that time, I didn’t even know the governor because I had just returned from Canada but I told other contestants who were far richer and popular then that I was the next king even if you know Barack Obama and the governor, it would not change the fact that I was going to be the next Oluwo.

How did you become the Oba if you didn’t know the governor?
When Olodumare wants to work, you can’t even understand how He would do it. Just for a few months before I became the king, Olodumare just opened a channel. I didn’t even meet the governor until the eve of the day I would be announced as the king. I met him at 1am and that was all! It was the work of Olodumare, the God of the Yorubas, the God of our fathers and you can’t understand it. When God brings a king, He brings him for a purpose.

Typical Nigerians

When the system favour you, it's call Eledumare


When the system is against you, we called it Nepotism, corruption, and Back door

This funky oba... Now I see why he carries himself in that manner. He has been injected with westernization fully.

Bitter truth. Nigeria monarch system has been highly politicized.

I grew up respecting Kano emirate as a highly revered entity. But it took just a Ganduje(Governor) to bastardize that. Even the Emir was dethroned.

Well, they have outlived their usefulness. Even village matters are now settled in police stations, instead of palaces.

I'm disappointed. So most of our traditional beliefs are scam. Only created to control gullible masses.

There is no monarch that cannot be crowned/deposed by the state government. Chieftaincy is strictly state government affairs.

That's the reason why the Obas picked by the politicians are misbehaving and don't know what it takes to be Oba.
