Are we obsessed with the Ooni of Ife? No, my good people, we just love celebrating our culture on our canvas in Viva Naija. Whenever a ruler upholds that which we hold dear, we will always publicise it. The Ooni of Ife in Ghana is a good excuse to blow our trumpet!
Here we see the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi Ojaja II, with another paramount ruler of another great African kingdom in Ghana, Kumasi to be precise – Otumfuo Nana Osei Tutu II, the ruler of Ashanti kingdom.
These pictures are lovely, aren’t they?? They were posted on the Ooni’s Facebook page. From all indication, it seems Oba Ogunwusi is on a courtesy visit. This also affords him the opportunity to showcase the depth of our cultural wealth.
As one commenter says, “O je wipe asa ile yoruba nlo kakiri omo yoruba gege bi itan atijoooooo” (may Google epp you with translation…?????)
We also predict that there will be an exchange of regal values on this visit!
