“He’s supposed to be the “Arole” of Oduduwa, but he’s here calling a fictional character his father. The sad part is, he’s encouraging others to do same. This is not shocking to me in the slightest. This is what happens when you’re raised, in a colonial state, on a colonial language, colonial epistemic frame-work and colonial spiritual philosophy.
You would never see Emperor Akihito of Japan, the head of state and the highest authority of the Shinto spiritual philosophy, refer to Oyinbo Jesus as his father (smh), for he’s raised, in a real nation, on the indigenous language of the land and on Japanese epistemic frame-work and the spiritual philosophy of Shinto.
Now, look at Japan and Japanese people and look at Yorubaland and the Yorubas, and tell me the difference is not clear. We call upon all the Afobajes to be very selective of who they crown as the Oba. We implore you, vehemently, to stop crowing intellectual lightweights and immature mofos as kings in Yorubaland”
