"In April 1991, The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi sought an urgent audience with the then military governor of the old Oyo State, Col Abdulkareem Adisa. The Ooni, Oba Adeyemi told the governor, was about to distort history and must be stopped. What history? Adisa asked. The planned installation of Chief Tom Ikimi as the Akinrogun of Yorubaland by Ooni Okunade Sijuade had no historical basis in Yoruba land, the Alaafin told Adisa. No Oba in the entire Yorubaland had a power to install any chief over the entire Yorubaland. Only the Aare Ona Kakanfo could be so installed and only I, the Alaafin had the power to do so, he further said.
The Governor rolled into action immediately and the late Ooni made a last-minute change. Tom Ikimi was no longer to be installed the Akinrogun of Yorubaland but that of Ife. The Alaafin, basking in his 'victory' further stated that Akinrogun was an Egba title which should have nothing to do with Ife.
Almost three decades down the line, the Alaafin plans to do exactly the same thing he stood against in 1991 - to install K1, Wasiu Ayinde as the Mayegun of Yorubaland instead of Mayegun of Oyo. A title which, like the purported Akinrogun of Yorubaland, has no historical basis but a blatant fabrication, and distortion of history. And not just that, one of K1’s friends who accompanied him on pre-installation visit to the Alaafin added a new one. After becoming the Mayegun, K1 must never prostrate or stoop in deference to any Oba again, he said. Alaafin does not make anyone a chief for that person to bow before any other Oba in Yorubaland again."

You are very stupid. O leko ni ile ni?  Se gbogbo won je egbe e ni? Must you abuse your elders (or anyone else) in order to make your point? O ma go o. Better you go and re-learn manners.

As a good adage says, "happiness is not pleasure, it's victory". Congratulations to wasiu even if I question the merit of Alaafin awarding this title to him.
