Oduduwa has never been Ooni but always Olofin


It is incontrovertible knowledge that Oduduwa is also l known as Olofin Otete and bore the title Olofin while ruling at Ile-Ife. Sadly, some awos preach that there’s a divinity called Olofin who is distinct from Oduduwa. Why? Even more saddsning is the insistence by the historians from his palace grounds that he was the first Ooni whereas Obalufon the spokesperson of Obatala and Oduduwa is the Ooni whose spirit is borne bu subsequent occupants of his throne. Oduduwa could not, given his niche and status, could not have borne the appellation of another divinity, almost all of whom he outranks. Why have these historians been misinforming us as if they are omo ale (bastards)?

  1. You need to explain in details, the true side of history and leave judgement to the readers. You do not need to call anybody bastards, that is their own understanding. We know for sure that Oduduwa was ‘Olofin Adimula’. Exactly what Olofin means and what Adimula means are what we need to know
