In your words Ile-Ife and Oyo have never been together? Just find a way to tell me even Oba of Lagos is superior to Alaafin.
Kingdoms conquer each other, they control territories of each other. It does not mean they are now greater.
Check your map. Even Part of Osun is still inside Oyo. I don't want to say "all" I wonder how they could be so close and you tell me this bullshii of conquering West/North East East When the same person created both Thrones.

Good.

Alaafin a son to the Ooni is not greater than the his father, the Ooni.

Stop confusing your self. If you say kingdoms rise and fall. Ile-Ife was once under Oyo Empire. For that reason, Ooni's throne can't be superior to Alaafin's throne. Ooni is the spiritual head of the Empire then. However in this new dispensation, it is safe to say the throne of Ooni is more relevant to that of Alaafin because it remains the spiritual connection between Yorubas and their ancestors. The Ooni is referred to as the progenitor of oduduwa's throne.
The throne of Ooni is like the throne of a chief priest. While the likes of Alaafin, Sadauna of Sokoto and Oba of Benin are the paramount rulers of their regions before the advent of the colonial masters.

You should read books & stop talking glib. Alaafin conquered west towards Dahomey axis not East. Ife, Ekiti, Ijesa, Ijebu & later Egba were not part of Oyo empire. In fact, Oyo and these towns made a pact to protect Ife from any attack or occupation.

1. Oyo was under Owu. Olowu is superior to Alaafin then?

2. Borgu conquered Oyo. King of Bariba is superior to Alaafin then?

3. Tiv conquered Oyo. Tapa King is superior to Alaafin.

4. Ilorin conquered, annexed Oyo & controlled Oyo kings. Ilorin king is superior to Oyo.

5. Ibadan forcefully took Oyo territories, forcefully took post of Bashorun, forcefully took Aare Ona Kakanfo despite Alaafin having people in the office. Olubadan is greater than Alaafin?

If Ife/Ooni/Oduduwa is the progenitor of Yoruba race then how is Alaafin greater than his progenitor? Are you equals or superior to your Dad?

Asaba was still under the old Bendel when the likes of Hubert Ogunde graced our screens in the 80s. We shouldn't mince things and mumble everything here. Yorubas are the pioneers of Nollywood and it was led by highly educated folks among them whose goal was to showcase their culture.

Ogunde and a few educated Yoruba entertainers had been acting since 1945 before they digitalized their plays in the 80s. English Nollywood or what we call 'Igbo Nollywood' today didn't come until about 3 decades later, roughly.

The earliest Igbo actors who took opportunity of the industry were largely uneducated. Eucharia even mentioned this recently when she graced 'Your views' on TVC and it explains why unlettered actors like Mr. Ibu, who though came quite early was boxed into acting the village clown and along with other actors.

Although Hubert Ogunde's first screen movie was in 1979, his theatre group had been around since 1945. And note, Ogunde formed the first contemporary professional theatrical company in Nigeria.

To see who started what, do a simple Google check on the development of the Eastern region in '45 and Ogunde's theatre group in 45. No disrespect but this aspect of our history doesn't deserve to be twisted to suit any narrative.

Ogunde's TV Movies

AIYE - 1979
JAIYESIMI - 1980
AROPIN N’TENIA - 1982
AYANMO - 1989

Can a child claim to be the head or equals to his father or mother? No matter how wealthy or prominent a child might become, the father/mother remains their head & superior. I do not think Otedola, Adenuga, Obasanjo, Danjuma, Bill Gates, Coscharis, Elumelu & such can claim to be their father/mother's equals or superior. If not, then Alaafin is not equals with or superior to the Ooni. In the structure of things, the Alaafin is inferior to Oba Bini even, Alaafin is the youngest/last.

Everyone seems stuck on Oyo's military exploits while forgetting this present Oyo is a town of those conquered in Oyo ile that long lost its military medals. This present Oyo was founded by one person, Alaafin Abiodun. It was not founded with the involvement of the other ruling houses & nobles of old Oyo. It was just one person replicating a town from the time past - Old Oyo & Ago Di Oyo are not the same. It is like saying the 13 colonies of New England & actual England were the same or that the Orile Owu in Osun state is the same as Owu or that Oke Igbo is the same as Ile-Ife. The debate should be who the superior or equals are between Alaafin; the king of Kishi & the king of Igboho because both latter towns are original remnants of Old Oyo.

Oyo was not the first town to expand militarily & neither was it the only town that did. Owu was a first military power that Oyo paid tribute to, why do we not prop Olowu as Ooni's equals or superior? Kingdoms rise & fall. The relevance of that rise remains within the period of the rise - not after.

The present Oyo is a makeshift one not the original. This present Oyo is an arrangement out of being conquered & dispersed. Abeg let us keep in mind that Oyo is a conquered group that long lost its military relevance. Alaafin has no claim to any pan Yoruba leadership except within Oyo dependent or originated towns.

And Aare Ona Kakanfo does not cut across Yorubaland. Except you meant Yorubaland in its original context of Oyoland.

I told you we will clarify these points using simplistic steps. Weare getting there.

1 - You have admitted that Ife preceeded Oyo
2 - You admitted that Yoruba towns are first spiritually cleansed before settlement
3 - You admitted Priests do the cleansing.

I have never mentioned Ooni in the two questions I asked, all I have done is focused on land and priests and the relationship between the two.
I have not said anything about Ooni in my two questions.

The next question is Oyo Ile was walled. Ife was not and Ife came before it. Why was Oyo Ile walled and Ife, or any other Yoruba city was not?

LOL Ife was not walled. Did you read what you typed & posted?

If you are unable to visit Ife or ask Ife folks who are rooted in culture, you should at least find answers in literatures particularly those written by Ife authors. Eluyemi & Akinjogbin for instance.

Ife was walled, a part of the wall cutting off Ilesa was excavated last year by French govt. sponsored archeological fieldwork. Let us not put wrong info out there, I am still having to read Profs Babatunde Lawal & Siyan Oyeweso's works on Lagos among others before putting any thoughts or questions out on it.

Really, I'm done with the posts.

My points have been clearly stated, Ooni does not play any esoteric, spiritual, priestly or divine role of any kind. Anything Orisa, divine, esoteric, priestly or divine is under specific lineages of the 200 deities. The Ooni lineage [all ruling & exempt houses with royal backgrounds] is the only lineage without any kind of Orisa obligation or attachment in the whole of Ife.

Enjoy the week, Chief.

The Ooni never had any claim to any pan Yoruba leadership either. Even within the tiny confine of Ife, Modakeke was a big issue.

I said if we went by legitimacy of crowns. Abi your child that derives from you can be your head ni? No matter how wealthy or prominent your children might become, you are their source & their head.

Military achievement is widespread and should not be used as a yardstick. Ijebu, Egba, Owu, Igbomina, Ekiti & the great Ibadan had serious military exploits. In fact, Ibadan had far more reach & conquests than Oyo within modern day Yorubaland. Militant kingdoms rise & fall. The fall is where the importance ends not after it.

Modakeke issue is beyond what is in the public. Let us just say the mess was an attempt by those who seriously loath Ife and want to see it wiped off the face of the earth for whatever reasons. We have settled & we are one.

Stop relaying someone else's thoughts. Think for yourself!

Do you believe that any land in Yoruba territory will ever be settled without first been cleansed spiritually and invocations to the ancestors are recited for their blessings and assistance to the land?

You will not find Yoruba live anywhere that has not first been sancretized and a shrine will be built for dedication to the prptective deities over such land.

A shrine is not a house...not just anybody show up to build a shrine. It is done by Priests.

The Priests that built shrines in Oyo Ile, where would they have come from?

Speak from your own intellect and not repeat what was written for you.

If you cant think independently then drop the argument.

Focus on those two questions i originally asked....stop the nonsense about bariba and owu and tapa.

1. Someone of a priest status would have attended to the land in Oyo Ile before settlelement. This is Yoruba philosophy.

2. Since Oyo was founded much after Ife, from where would the priests and shrine builders have been sourced to anoint Oyo Ile?

And the anointer of Oyo Ile was Ooni abi?

The history of town rituals is couched in Ifa & these rituals are often said to have been done by Babalawo, examples abound & Odu used to establish several Yoruba towns abound. Not one mentioned Ooni going to do rituals for any town.

What is certain is, neither you, not I & not even the Alaafin knows exactly what the creation of Oyo was like but what is clear is, at the time Oyo was founded Ife 1. Did not have or use Ooni 2. Ife was headed for a string of years by those who wanted it to remain as a confederacy 3. No Ooni does rituals, not even Oduduwa shrine is under his purview. All of these are facts & are still in operation here.

I've made my point clear in my 3 posts & I'm done here. Peace & blessings to you.

We will resolve this in very simplistic steps.

Answer these questions -

1. In order of creation, history places Ife and Ooni ahead of Oyo and Alaafin.

2. Oyo Ile was a sacred city, and certain rituals would have been performed at its inception. Similarly, Alaafin would have been coronated and installed using certain rites.

Who were the priests that would be responsible for dedicating Oyo and as well authorising position of divine power on the coronated Alaafin? What was the origin of such priests?

You & I do not know if & what rituals were performed at the inception of Oyo.

And if Oranmiyan founded Oyo indeed then Ife history indicates that the rulership of Ife at the time of Oyo founding had gone back to those who strongly opposed the creation of Ife. As such, there was no way any 'Ooni' would have partook in the rituals of Oyo if that is your bullseye.

Oyo-Ife intermix began & ends with Oranmiyan. Oyo in its early years was a 'bitch' to Owu, Bariba & Tapa. It was getting chased around to form Kishi, Igboho & so on. With a chequred early history, the rituals & rites were homegrown deriving from the peculiarities of the experiences & geography. As we can see they have their homegrown Ogboni, Sango cult etc.

The Ooni of Ife stool is the most superior royal stool in Yoruba land without any argument. However, as a result of empire building and military conquest, the Alaafin ruled over a very significant part of Yoruba land at a point in our history. During that period, the Ooni was recognized as the spiritual head while the Alaafin was the political/administrative head. So you see, both of them have a legitimate claim to Yoruba leadership.

As regards the Mayegun title, K1 is simply trying to promote the title beyond its relevance. He is the Mayegun of Oyo and not Mayegun of Yoruba land. The only title that cut across all Yoruba land is the “Aare Oona Kankan Ofo” title that is currently being held by Iba Gani Adams.

I don't get it. Everyone seem stuck on Oyo's military exploits & forgot Oyo was/is a conquered town that long lost its military medals to Ibadan. Oyo was not the first town to expand militarily & neither was it the only town that did. Owu was a first military power that Oyo paid tribute to, why do we not prop Olowu as Ooni's equals too?

Alaafin is the political head of Yoruba.
Ooni is the spiritual head of Yoruba
.

This has been covered several times.

In matters of divine spiritual worship and esoteric powers Ooni is first. In matters of military, politics and diplomatic relationships Alaafin is first.

The issue in Ekiti is political.

My oga, I do not know what premise this conclusion of yours is based upon but it is false.

The spiritual/political allotment was a short-term solution in the immediate post-colonial period for Oyo/Ife supremacy struggle in the pre-Osun state days.

Ooni does not play any spiritual, divine or esoteric role both in Ile-Ife or Yorubaland at large. Every esoteric matter in Ife is a prerogative & inheritance of the descendants of the deity concerned. Ko si eleyi to kan Ooni rara not even Oduduwa which is under the custody of Idio lineage headed by Obadio. Let us stop this misinformation, it makes no sense. Also Yoruba kings go to the agbo ile they derive from for sword of state not the Ooni, it is totally out of the purview of the Ooni. For instance, Alaafin & Oba Bini for instance go to Chief Eredunmi, Oranmiyan's chief-priest for sword of state. Ko kan Ooni at all.

Alaafin is the political head of Oyo & towns with Oyo origin mostly to the west of our landscape. We know those originally referred to as Yoruba & Alaafin arrogated headship of Yoruba to himself in the colonial times within the context of those who were Yoruba at the time.

Alaafin has too many seniors ahead to lay claim to any leadership of any rank among Yoruba Oba. And also the legitimacy of Oyo as a kingdom needs to be questioned considering the present was a makeshift & not the orginal that was already dead. The Oyo were a conquered and dispersed people. The Oyo of today is not the same as the Oyo of Katunga - it takes away that militancy, diplomacy & politics you have ascribed to Oyo. You should give all of those to Ibadan instead. Going by proper history, the Alaafin lacks any modicum of merit to all you have ascribed to him.

There are militant towns, Oyo was a tributary town to Owu till its collapse. Military exploits is not a yardstick for relevance. Ibadan posed threats to Oyo & in/directly insulted Alaafin at various points too. Ibadan held on to that military record till colonial era as such, matters bordering on military/diplomacy should be under the purview of Olubadan not any Alaafin.

Finally, if the legitimacy of the crowns of all Yoruba Oba come from the Ooni & the Ooni is at the center as the adhesive holding Yoruba kingdoms together as one before, during & after colonial era then he's the political head of Yorubaland.
Politics / Re: Usman Dan Fodio: Founder Of The Sokoto Caliphate by OgboAto: 9:34am On Mar 07
You can download an European explorer's eye witness account of Fulani's exploits in the north here. The account describes the treachery, bloodletting & genocidal activities of the Fulani against the north while giving credit to Dan Fodio for attempting to build a kingdom for himself. The narrative also captured how the Hausa were enslaved by the Fulani; how the Hausa became totally helpless but one Hausa kingdom managed to raise a revolt that lasted a shortwhile. This account captured the Fulani conquest to Nyffe [Nupe] & Oyo after which Yoruba repelled them. Finally, it discusses how the Borno almost collapsed the Fulani empire. How the Sheik of Borno sacked Fulani occupied Hausa towns one by one. It is an interesting read. See link beow:

Secondly, call it misic or whatever name you like, as long as there isn't instruments and it doesn't contain prohibited lyrics there's nothing bad in it. Otherwise, it's un-Islamic.

You are not very smart.
While modernisation is relative per-culture, a region of the world 'conquered' the world eons back & have gone to set a globally accepted minimum standard of what should be considered modernisation. Every part of the world is gearing towards that standard & you say modernisatio. Is not exclusive to a region of the world?

- Democracy
- Human rights for all
- Gender equality
- Liberalism
- Implementation of science & technology along western standards etc

All of these & more show that modernisation today is synonymous to westernisation.

OROSUNBOLB:
The same old tactic ! Alimi was a fulani spy sent by the caliphate to infiltrate Yoruba land and report back his findings in preparation for eventual invasion and conquest agenda of the Fulani caliphate. He settled down in Ilorin at a time when the Oyo empire had been terribly weakened by so many unnecessary internal conflicts and disputes. The empire was at its lowest ebb.

Afonja,the generalissimo ( Aare ona kakanfo) was quite ambitious and very rebellious. He had stopped taking order from Alaafin Aole. Alimi,the Fulani man was aware of all these facts. He was quite aware of the strengths and military prowess of Afonja and his warriors. He knew that there was no way the Jammahs ( caliphate warriors) would invade Ilorin and conquer the seasoned and battle hardened Afonja and his men. He thereafter devised a way and became overnight friend of Afonja. He quickly won Afonja's trust and became his adviser !

Remember,Alimi was a Fulani military spy who disguised as an Islamic scholar in Ilorin. Having studied Afonja and his men, he realised there was no way the invading "jonmon" could overrun Ilorin. So he offered Afonja the most devilish advice that cost him his life. He advised Afonja to sack all his warriors that he would supply him with "able bodied men" for him to realise his ambition of forming his own empire independent of Oyo. This is the same advice the same Fulani people are offering us again today ! Amotekun !!

Long history cut short,Afonja sacked most of his men and he replaced them with Alimi's men- the jonmon ! At a point, the jonmon became quite troublesome and stopped taking orders from Afonja. They did whatever Alimi asked them to do or not to do. Prior to the invasion of Afonja's palace and his eventual dethronement and death, Alimi withdrew all Fulani warriors from the palace. Afonja was left with very few Yoruba warriors; he was exposed.

On the day of the palace invasion, Afonja's men were grossly outnumbered. The ratio was like 30 to 1! Afonja gathered his remaining Yoruba warriors in the palace and faced Alimi and his men. He and his men fought gallantly and was able push back Alimi and his men,several meters away from the palace, to the junction where he was eventually killed. Afonja was so brave that he fought and died on his feet such that the Fulani jonmon were even scared of touching his dead body.

Alaafin was aware of everything that was happening in Ilorin but refused to give orders to his war Generals stationed in Ibadan and its environs to assist and liberate Afonja. He already placed a curse on Afonja and his offsprings that they would be treated like strangers on their own land.

Alimi received orders from Gwandu,the then seat of the caliphate, to march southward and conquer other Yoruba towns and cities. Alimi's men met their waterloo at Osogbo (1840) where they were crushed and suffered heavy defeats in the hands of Oyo soldiers ably led by the Ibadan Generals. They locked down Ilorin for months and could have taken it back without any fight but the Alaafin refused to give order to that effect. He used that to punish Afonja for his rebellion. The closest town to Ilorin is Ganmo and the traditional ruler of that town is an Oba- not an emir. That shows that the Oyo soldiers could have taken over Ilorin if they had been given order to do so.

I am Yoruba,an Amotekun !


The descendants of bandit,land grabber and terrorist called Uthman Dan fodio should know that Yoruba people will always be a thousand and one miles ahead of them in all ramifications.

The brouhaha on the pages of newspapers and the internet is needless. If anybody truly wants to stop Amotekun, then they should be the guests of Ode Ibiles and the Agbekoyas in the deep forests of Oodua land. Please don't forget to come with your AK 47s and other assault rifles. It will give us the needed platform to demonstrate what we are capable of doing.

Amotekun is here and cannot be stopped by any bandit from the plateau of futa jalon in Guinea.

Amotekun ! Ogboju Ode,gbogbo ara kiki oogun !

Ibadan sprung up organically as an IDP refugee camp catering to fleeing Yorubas from across the empire owing to the Fulani invasion .

In the sense that such a court order should be within the purview of king makers to implement, as it will give the whole process a traditional feel. If the kingmakers are a part of selecting kings then they should also be part of the removal process.

Anyway in the days of old, this king will be expected to commit suicide or migrate very far.

Kogi, please do not vote Yamayama Bello again. The disastrous first time was enough. Really prove that power indeed resides with the people & make Yamayama Bello realize this by voting the dumb useless guy the Bleep out!
