“You’re A Disgrace To The Throne And Lagosians” – Nigerians Lambast Oba Akiolu

Following the show of perceived animosity publicly displayed by the Oba of Lagos, Riliwan Akiolu towards The Imperial Majesty, The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, at an event in Lagos, Nigerians have been bearing their minds on the scene.

The video showing Oba Akiolu publicly snubbing The Ooni Of Ife, on Tuesday went viral.

In the video, Ooni Ogunwusi came into the venue of an event where the obi of Onitsha and Oba Of Lagos were already seated, the Ife monarch greeted the obi and the onitsha king responded as expected, but, Oba Akiolu in an unexpected manner, immediately ignored the greetings of the ooni, leaving the monarch to return to his seat.

While many wondered why the Lagos monarch, publicly snubbed the highly revered Yoruba traditional ruler, others believed he is jealous of the his throne, being one of the most highly respected in Yoruba land.

Nigerians are not taking it easy on him…..
Read some of the comments below:

@AfroVII …..This oba of Lagos is a disgrace to the position and people of Lagos. What lesson is he teaching? He is not fit to occupy that position .

“this oba of Lagos sef no get sense!! How would you embarrass yourself like this in the public eye for everyone to see??

“Una no understand Wetin dey happen, baba fit no even see Ooni ???? @luk_side”

“All I see is that the Oba of Lagos embarrassed himself rather than humiliate the Ooni….

“Oba of Lagos is technically not a Yoruba king, if this was between the Oba of Lagos and the Oba of Benin, then perhaps hierarchical issue.

“@OroAdunni  @LanreAgboola1 Traditionaly, kings don’t greet on the basis of age. I believe the OOni only acknowledged his counterparts based on humility. He’s humble”

“@OdunAjiboye @AfroVII You will expect an elder like him to respect and display maturity in dealing with issues… It shows. He is not fit to be in that position.”

“Oba of Eko was subject to Oba of Benin & Oba of Benin is a descendant of Oranmiyan the son of Oduduwa. Ooni is the arole of Oduduwa,”

“@rosanwo this disgraceful treatment to the Ooni of Ife in a public place shld be condemned by all,am happy he shook it off with dignity.”

“@KneWKeeD This is a case of an elderly person not respecting himself. The Ooni can dethrown the Oba.”

“@KneWKeeD Uhmmmmm, if he get dethroned people will start blabbing. What a shame reaction from a person who should be a role model. KING, THUG LIFE”

“@KneWKeeD the oba of Lagos is high on Lagos weed. We will be here to sing a song of disgrace, when he’s on his way down.”

“@KneWKeeD I think the oba should actually be the first to greet the ooni. Scene like these in the old days would have led to war”

“@Naiyoopumpey @KneWKeeD It’s glaring from the start of this Ooni’s reign that he loves peace and he respects people. Maybe a little too much.”

“@MrAyeDee What stupid king? Does that say he shd act like a child ni. Royalty apart what he did was absolutely wrong. Stop defending stupidity”

What do you also make of his action?



  1. You can't give what you don't have and a leopard can not change its skin, is he not a retired police officer, what respect or moral did they have to tradition or humanity.
