Shame For Saying Jesus Is Your Father! – Seun Kuti Blasts Ooni Of Ife



Afrobeat singer and son of the legendary
Fela Kuti, Seun Kuti has heavily criticised
the Ooni of Ife Oba, Adeyeye Enitan
Ogunwusi for saying that Jesus Christ is
his father, saying its a shame to the
monarch.

Seun, in the interview with Sahara TV,
said the Ooni’s statement is shameful
after all the rituals he did before
becoming the King of Yoruba race.
Recall that earlier in the year the Ooni, at
a church service had declared that Jesus is
his father.
Seun Kuti’s words:
“Its just a shame. Its just like saying that
the Queen of England says the Pope is her
father. If she says she no longer believes
in the Anglican church of England and
Archbishop of Canterbury and she swears
allegiance to the Pope…That will be the
last day she will be the Queen of England.
“So for the Ooni to say he is the son of
Jesus is cap over face, Shame! Shame!
Shame! Especially after all the rituals he
has done to become king of Yoruba
people.
“It is literal when they say to become
King in Yoruba land you have to eat the
king (the previous king). Yes he is the
king of everybody.
“British people are Muslims too, Ifa
worshipers too but it doesn’t mean the
Queen will pander to them by going to
worship with them.
“No, but she respects their rights to
freedom and accommodation as the King,
that is your duty but to go and start
pandering with them is an
embarrassment to a throne that is older
than him, to a throne that is older than
his lineage, to a thrown that is older than
anything that he thinks he knows.”
Seun also lambasted the Oluwo of Iwo
land, Oba AbdulRasheed Akanbi, over his
claims that idol worship among
monarchs was responsible for the crisis
in the land. The singer even called the
Oluwo an ‘idiot’.
“There is another king like him (Ooni), I
have forgotten his name, one little young
idiot that goes around saying it is the
rituals that our ancestors have done that
is why people are suffering so his throne
is now a Christian, he is a Christian king.
“I mean it is just nonsense. If the Ooni
can say that, I can see how one little
stupid idiot that they also gave a crown
too can say the same rubbish” . he said
