Ooni Ogunwusi blasted for kneeling in church

Ooni kneel down

Many Nigerians have taken to the social media to express their disgust at the action of the newly-crowned Ooni of Ife who was pictured kneeling in a church. They say it is an affront and rubbishing of the traditional African religion which he is supposed to defend, practise and uphold. On the flip side, some others have blasted him for mixing Christianity with traditional African religions. ‘

‘The Queen of England from the lands who brought you Christianity doesn’t kneel in the church of England nor does she kneel for the god or Jesus, but the Ooni of Ife, a sacred lineage and position that preceded that of England, preceded Christianity now feels the need to insult our culture, people, intelligence and dignity by kneeling in some church! This is just disgusting!”- Teekay Arabambi Akin
