The man who will be next Ooni of Ife By Niyi Tabiti


 When it comes to fame, fortune and class, the Ooni of Ife,
Oba Okunade Sijuade had it all. He was a man with impeccable taste for
everything that glitz and glamour. The Ife monarch was known as one of the
wealthiest kings in Nigeria history.
He was a king in every sense of the word.  

 Shortly after
publishing  the profile on my blog, I read different newspapers and magazines
online to get other updates on the death of the Oba Sijuade. Almost all the
article published same thing online.
  His glamorous wife, Olori Ladun was in Lagos, some weeks ago to
attend the baby dedication of Ngozi Nkoloenyi’s daughter dedication. We have
several Nigerian bloggers in the UK who are re-publishing what someone in
Mushin, Lagos wrote about what happened in London. 
     Lets leave that one aside. I heard that some ife council of chiefs have denied that Ooni of Ife is dead.Sources disclosed they did so because laid down traditional rules are to be followed before the formal announcement by Obalufe of Ife,Oba Omisakin. He is the only man recognized by tradition to do so.

 So who is the man who will step into the big shoes of the Ooni of Ife? The man must posses certain qualities in abundance according to the precedence set up by Oba Sijuade.He must be very rich,famous and well connected.His sense of style must also be very impeccable like that of the predecessor. Lastly, the next of Ooni of Ife must be confirmed by Ifa, according to the Yoruba tradition.
