In places where tradition has strong grounds like Nigeria per say, people grow up to learn that a king doesn’t leave his throne, in Nigerian pidgin English they put it this way, “Oba no they go transfer”. By that I meant he doesn’t leave where he dominates. But unfortunately for people with such believe they’ve be proven wrong by one monarch in Nigeria, Ooni of Ife.

Somehow that tends to be the reason why most crowned prince who grew up abroad find it difficult to come back home and take over when their dad is gone to the world beyond.

Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, has gone beyond expectation to some of us, breaking boundaries shaking hands with great men of other nations and creating good recognition to the Yoruba’s cultural values as Washington DC celebrates with them by declare a day a as Yoruba day.

I won’t forget to mention the most interesting part of their visit, which was, they also traveled along with substantial native assurance and people who knows how to use them to entertain others. In one of their events one Yoruba native entertaining the Ooni and others was actually breathing out fire and it triggered alarm and got the fire service on their feet.

So far, it was a successful trip away from home. He’s finally back to his country, his people and of course his throne. See some pictures of his arrival back to Nigeria below.
