82 year old ex President Olusegun Obasanjo yesterday paid a visit to the new Ooni of Ife Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi , 41, and shocked everyone by prostrating for the new King.
In the days of old this won’t have been a big deal because it is believed that once a person becomes King in Yoruba land, he is next to the gods, and has become older than everyone(Alase Ikeji Orisa). The Ooni according to history and tradition is the greatest Yoruba King and father of the Yoruba people.
No doubt OBJ believes in tradition and showed this clearly by prostrating for a man who ordinarily is younger than most of his kids. See more photos below:
