The recent action of the recently crowned Ooni of Ife, Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi during an appearance in the church has been heavily criticised on the social media.
Many Nigerians have taken to the social media to express their disgust at the action of the newly-crowned Ooni of Ife, Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi who was pictured kneeling in a church.
They say that the act of a traditional yoruba King kneeling in a church is an affront and rubbishing of the traditional African religion which he is supposed to defend, practise and uphold.
On the flip side, some others have blasted the Ooni for mixing Christianity with traditional African religions.
In the words of an angry social media user:
“The Queen of England from the lands who brought you Christianity doesn’t kneel in the church of England nor does she kneel for the god or Jesus, but the Ooni of Ife, a sacred lineage and position that preceded that of England, preceded Christianity now feels the need to insult our culture, people, intelligence and dignity by kneeling in some church! This is just disgusting!”- Teekay Arabambi Akin.
