Dr Kemi Olunloyo says Oluwo of Iwoland, Oba Akanbi, is one of the favourite kings when it comes to African Culture. Kemi Omololu-Olunloyo is a Nigerian journalist, blogger, activist and also social media personality.
The popular journalist, Kemi Olunloyo, said though she is not a fan of African culture, however, she cherishes the brotherly love between Oluwo of Iwo, Oba AbdulRasheed Adewale Akanbi Telu 1 and Olofa of Offa Oba Mufutau Gbadamosi, Esuwoye II.
A few days ago, the viral picture of APC National leader, Bola Tinubu, who greeted Ooni of Ife, Oba Adewusi Ojaja II while seated. Many people reacted to the scenario disgraceful to the Yoruba culture. They said it speaks no well of Tinubu for not prostrating for Ooni of Ife.
The Ooni of Ife had arrived at the event and was walking to the high table when he stopped by to greet Tinubu. Divided opinions welcomed the action of the national leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Tinubu who was pictured sitting while greeting the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi (Ojaja II) during the coronation ceremony of Oba Oniru at the Iru Palace, Victoria Island, on Sunday, 6 September 2020.
Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi came in during the event while walking to his seat he stopped to greet personalities on the high table. Also, Oba Adeyeye stopped to greet Tinubu who was sitting on the same table with Oniru of Iru-land, Oba Abdul-Wasiu Omogbolahan Lawal (Abisogun II).
Ooni of Ife is known as the number one custodian of culture and such royalty deserves respect from any Yoruba subject no matter your status or rank.
While reacting to the scenario, Kemi Olunloyo said the whole drama around who to prostrate for who is unnecessary that she is not a fan of African Culture. However, the Oluwo of Iwoland, Oba AbdulRasheed Olawale Akanbi is one of my favorite kings. She emphasized that the brotherly love between Oluwo and Olofa of Offa is amazing.
Using her Facebook page, Dr. Kemi Olunloyo said the following;
“The whole drama and Controversy of who prostates for who is not necessary. I’m not a fan of African culture. Here is one of my favorite King’s King if Iwo land hugging another King at a recent event. The Olofa of Offa and Iwo king are expressing “brotherly love”.
