This shows that the British colonial masters had regards for the traditional institution. In the United Kingdom, PMs serve the Queen.

Why didn't those traditional rulers become as reverend as the British royalty after independence?

Does it mean we destroyed our traditional institution ourselves and blame it on the colonial masters?

Igboho's forebears have always depended on alms to fend for themselves. This finally explains why 90% of slave trade was from that region.

You can't find an Igbo or even Hausa king on the list because they just have too much ego as real men should.


Fun fact: If you are receiving stipends from another king then you are not a king.

Don't bring Hausa Kings into your deeakk measuring competition. It is bold written there " Southern Province " so keep your sermon.

Alaafin is in charge of an empire that transcends to Benin republica,Togo and even Ghana.

Awujale and Alake are even above Ooni and Oba of Benin..

No wonder these two kings seems not to be in agreement with Ooni..

I noticed no traditional ruler from the Old Eastern region in the list maybe because they weren't graded then.

State creation reduced the influence of some traditional rulers while it elevated some.

You don quickly bring SS into this again cheesy Meanwhile, I believe you and yours brother dey brag here that in your region, everyone is a king in his house and when the colonial masters arrived, no reputable leader to engage since everyone is a king inside his house.

Leave people of traceable history alone.

Wrong

It was based on the number of people under the Monarch

With £2,400 Olubadan was second only to Alaafin

Yet Olubadan was not in league of any of the first Class Monarchs

Olubadan was almost a Baale Position at the time because he was under Alaafin

To the british. It was all about whatever native chief or kings brings in more tax.

As per the Ooni being the Premier, Ooni Aderemi was educated to an extent, and could read and write well.

This list was dated 1938. Around the same period also.

As per the oba of Benin question. Of course they are not Yorubas, the only thing Yoruba about Benin is their Oba who is a descendant of Oranmiyan as mentioned by the Oba himself during his coronation. Afterall, Oranmiyan met people already in Benin.

What is there to write about in your tasteless, slavery history ? Nothing! Your progenitors were nobody;mere slaves of the Ijaws! We are talking about people with prominent ancestry, a descendant of hinterland bushmen like you is here feeling funky!

At the time being reported,your forebears were still being shipped in droves to the other side of the world as slaves! Check it out :

It's all about your ego as Binis, that is quite understandable! Believe it or not,Oba of Benin is not a Bini man. The fact is,Oba of Benin is of Yoruba descent;his ancestors were Yoruba from Ile Ife.

Okay..
The warrant chiefs weren't paid then...
I guess it was after state creation that their states upgraded the warrant chiefs to kings.

If another king is paying you salary, you are not a king but his subject.
