Darren Idongesit Aquaisua is a Nigerian and he has taken to his Facebook page to thoroughly lambast the Yoruba monarch. He wrote:
To my Yoruba brothers, I have to apologise before hand. I am a professional ethnic bigot and I always have an opinion, a malignant opinion that doesn’t stay hidden for long.
I’ve been harbouring this disdain for your spiritual head and I couldn’t express it because I’ve lived amongst you lot and I know how you pay reverence to elders but I Darren Idongesit Aquaisua don’t share in that culture and I have zero respect for elders and authority so I have to fire some shots.
Your Ooni is a disgrace right from the coronation and his choice of queen.
The Ooni is automatically a human-god and the little Yoruba history and Ifa tradition I’ve studied, the Ooni has always been the master of the universe and Lord of all lords until the last one gave up that title in deference to a Jewish mythical figure called Jesus,
The Ooni was described as Lord of the universe even before the story of Jesus Christ so why did the last Ooni drop such a huge title for a carpenter nailed on two piece plywood?
This current Ooni is too young and puerile, wisdom has nothing to do with age so he ought to know better.
The Ooni doesn’t visit Nigerian presidents(okay maybe that time Abacha was around.), the presidents visit the Ooni because the stool of the Ooni is bigger than the office of the presidency to the Yoruba ethnic group.
The Ooni doesn’t visit people anyhow, he should have sent a prince or representative to the Oba of Benin and Alaafin of Oyo.
Why is he a Christian when Ifa was in established practice before Christianity? Why is he insulting that majestic legacy?
Doing Ifa divination today and hugging a crucifix tomorrow, what kind of madness is that?
The elders of Ile-Ife had better sit up and reinstall that title of “Oluaye” because the Ooni is bigger than any other foreign god and he should stop mixing Yoruba traditional worship with a fake foreign religion. It doesn’t mean because Oba Okunade Sijuade dropped this title that Oduduwa himself appointed, this new Ooni must also deny that he is the owner of the universe.
His second wife neè “Otiti” was a wrong choice for queen and also a dangerous pretender, we on the sidelines know her every move. She usurped the position of the first wife with her trickery and Ooni had no wisdom to know better, now she is disgracing us abroad. She was a free and independent woman before the Ooni married her, she is feeling insecure that Africans will not accept her that’s why she is playing politics by saying stupid things like “a woman is below a man!” Just to win African votes and a false sense of humility. We can see her face well, she does insult the Ooni when the camara is not around so she should stop the fake piety. If the Ooni loves her she shouldn’t pander. The Ifa texts have clearly stated that the woman and man are equal but they are different vessels for complementary purposes so why is she saying women are plastic plates while men are fine chinaware?
What’s with wearing a regal attire to play golf?
What kind of nonsense is that? Why is he disgracing that royal wear?
It’s like queen Elizabeth wearing her coronation apparels complete with the majestic cape to join the scrum on a rugby field.
This Ooni needs proper Ifa prayers because soon enough Sango will slap him a combination of Igbati, Igbarun, or Igbaju and Jesus wouldn’t do anything about it.
Stop disgracing the legacy of Oduduwa.
Yoruba people should also know that the late Ooni had a favourite and it wasn’t Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi. He is just disgracing the legacy of Oduduwa with his childish antics.
