Months ago, the famous Ooni of Ife made a statement that shook social media for weeks.
The Ooni made an open declaration that Jesus Christ is his father, while such statements didn’t get down well with many, some actually praised him for it.
Controversial afrobeat star, Seun Kuti who is the son of late legend, Fela Anikulapo recently blasted the Ooni in a recent interview with Sahara TV.
Seun is of the opinion that it is a shame for Ooni to declare Jesus Christ as his father.
Buttressing his point, Seun said that after all the rituals the Ooni did before ascending the throne, he shouldn’t mention Jesus as his father.
In his words: “for the Ooni to say he is the son of Jesus is cap over face, Shame! Shame! Shame! Especially after all the rituals he has done to become king of Yoruba people. It is literal when they say to become King in Yoruba land you have to eat the king (the previous king)”
