The Thread: All the Kings greater than the Oba of Lagos

You’ve probably heard of the snub Oba Akiola, the Oba of Lagos, gave the Ooni of Ife at a public event, which the Oba of Lagos is now allegedly pinning on poor eyesight. If you missed it, here it is.


It’s generated quite the uproar on Twitter, with members of the Yoruba clan slamming Oba Akiola for the unbelievable disrespect. Apparently, in matters of hierarchy, the Oba of Lagos cannot smell the Ooni of Ife’s shoes, the latter having descended from Oduduwa and all that.

[In case you missed it]: “Are Lagos and Ife about to to to war?”

@-achm3d was thoughtful enough to help us out with all the Kings who have greater ranking than the Oba of Lagos.
It’s a curious list. Do see below:

Aye le ibosi o.
