Epic Photos: 82 Year Old Ex President Olusegun Obasanjo PROSTRATES For 41 Year Old Ooni Of Ife(Photos )

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:

Impressive right?

    This man needs help! He is a mad man! He needs psychiatric evaluation seriously. An 82year old Ex-President postrating to a 41year old?? What is happening to our cherished African culture???

      With due respect needed some schooling on Yoruba culture to be precise

        He really needs some tutoring on Yoruba culture.
        Yoruba gives respects regards age, igbo’s gives respect based on wealth.

      @Evelyn, I rather you checked yourself to be sure you are mentally balanced yourself. In yoruba culture, everyone postrate to the king irrespective of your age difference with the king, Obasanjo just displayed an invaluable practical action of culture that enshrine values in recovery in our minds

        Jeremy the question I asked is the right one as it is the one I weatnd an answer to. You chose not to answer the question – that’s fine. Trying to dodge an answer with something that belongs in Wheen’s ‘Mumbo Jumbo’ is the wrong answer.

    This is nothing but a tradition in practise.

    Not all those rubbish wey oyinbo people carry come teach us.
