A video showing the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, being covered by his palace chiefs as he climbs out of his car has gone viral on social media.
The Ooni (King) is not supposed to bow down to anyone, according to Ife tradition.
As a result, they must hide when the Ooni exits his automobile since it appears that he is bowing down.
The tradition has been perceived as funny and strange to many as they questioned if the King isn’t bowing down to the chiefs who often cover him.
