Wow! Kabiyesi waja.

Ibadan's age-long non-acrimonous method of choosing successive Olubadan will always turn up an aged Oba because candidates spend so long on the queue before it gets to the eventual Oba's turn.

With the passing of Kabiyesi, it should be 80-year old Pa Rasheed Ladoja who's likely next in line to the Olubadan's stool. They almost messed up Kabiyesi's political position with fake news during the 2023 Presidential election. Probably Kabiyesi was already dealing with age-related slowdowns.

May God console his immediate family,
Ibadan, Oyo state and Nigeria as a whole. Nigeria lost a great Nigerian and First Class Royal Father.

You're right. Was told Pa ladoja is next in line.

Not Ladoja's turn yet, the next Olubadan is High Chief Owolabi Olakulehin. From a bonafide Ibadan man.

Most families now use young men as family head so that by the time they get to become Olubadan (take average of 50 years ). They won't be too old

At last Ladoja dream is coming true.
I lauded him when I read his reply to Seyi government when they want to install him as Oba..... He said the only crown he is after is the Olubadan crown .

Congratulations.

Ironically,as its said ..... While the family of the late Oba is mourning the families of the next Oba will be jubilating

The late monarch was A PhD holder and former Senator. Very brilliant.


Senator Ladoja is in the civil line. The next will come from Military line (Oba Olakulehin), then after him will be Senator Ladoja. A peaceful and predictable system




Thanks for the explanation. This is exactly what my mum told me when I said it should be Ladojas turn after Lekan Balogun.

Let’s hope his death will not inconvenience honest folks trying to make a living. Gone should be the days of closing markets for a week while searching for youths to sacrifice. Let the world quickly fast forward so Gen Alpha will take over with their forward-thinking mindset. All these generations who believe in witchcraft should die off.

Eranko, your blood will be used to clean the land. Shey sense is far from your flat head ni.
