Ooni Of Ife is an embarrassment to the throne for saying Jesus is his Father – Seun Kuti


Seun Kuti, son of Afro beat legend Fela Anikulapo Kuti is about to ruffle feathers with his latest comment about the Ooni Of Ife.

In an interview with Sahara Reporters the
musician made clear his disapproval of the new Ooni for pushing aside
Yoruba traditional beliefs,  as on a recent trip to the United States
the new Ooni said that Jesus is his father.

When asked about his response to the Ooni claiming Jesus as his father, Seun did not hold back saying,

Its just a shame. Its just like saying that the Queen of
England says the Pope is her father. If she says she no longer believes
in the Anglican church of England and Archbishop of Canterbury and she
swears allegiance to the Pope, a fellow christian but a catholic, she is
leaving that throne that day. So 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 . So after a man is eaten the king,
the king tha has jus t passed…

Yes he is the king of everybody, Christians and Muslims alike.
British people are Muslims too, Ifa worshipers too but it doesn’t mean
the Queen will pander to them by going to worship with them. No, but she
respects their rights to free religion and accommodate them and protect
them as the King, that is your duty but to go and start pandering with
them is an embarrassment to a throne that is older than him, to a throne
that is older than his lineage, to a throne that is older than anything
that he thinks he knows.

There is another king like him, I have forgotten his name, one little
young idiot that goes around saying it is the rituals that our
ancestors have done that is why people are suffering so his throne is
now Christian, he is a Christian king. I mean it is just nonsense. If
the Ooni can say that, I can see how one little stupid boy that they
also gave a crown too can say the same rubbish”
