What could have let to this public show of disapproval? Watch as Oba of Lagos publicly insults Ooni of Ife at a function. Are there some form of underground fracas between the two monarchs?
Well, the video which captures Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Aremu Akiolu, publicly ignoring the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi at a public function has gone viral on social media and it is raising so many questions.
The video, which lasted for 27 seconds, shows the Ooni arriving the venue of an event, where he exchanged pleasantries with the Obi of Onitsha, Igwe Alfred Achebe.
The Ooni’s attempt to greet the Oba Akiolu, who was seated next to the Obi of Onitsha, was rebuffed by the Lagos monarch who simply waved his hand and ignored the Ooni.
