    Ooni is the Emperor of Yoruba land. Everybody in that hall, including the Oba of Lagos and all, were supposed to stand as he walked in.

    Oba of Lagos should not get it twisted… Ooni is bigger than all the Lagos obas put together! Forget the person; that’s Yoruba Oba rep.

    Oba of Lagos should know he’s like a governor while Oni of Ife is the President of Obas. He should apologize to his president.
