Foreigners refuse to kneel before the Ooni of Ife during a courtesy visit to his palace

Like the popular saying goes – when in Rome behave like the Romans…but it seems these foreigners forgot that part.

The foreigners were led by some Nigerians on a courtesy visit to the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi at his palace.

However, they refused to kneel before the monarch like their Nigerian counterparts instead they sat comfortably on the sofa.



  1. Its because dey were foreigners, their palava jere. Good morning, TGIF. Nkenchi, wot happened at I.G yesterday not. You missed your 10k freebies, giving to another cus u refused to claim on time. No number to call u with, jus try n giv Boss@adelovecom reason mayb he can rectify it for u.

  2. They’re sitting with so much humility i think that’s what matters, why must everybody kneel down they’re not Africans, I think our culture inAfrica need some modifications, upon all the kneeling & prostrating all over the place the continent is still backward, our leaders in collaboration with our monarchs are stupendously wealthy while the rest of us live in abject poverty, all we do in the name of cultures is to keep kneeling & prostrating for those that are enslaving us.

  3. Why will this be news. I can’t even kneel if I visit him, how much less a white foreigner. AdeLove, another story, please!

  4. Our people should have briefed them about it before they got there. I am sure it would have been that way if it was the other way round. Anyway, I hope the Ooni did not take it to heart.
