Ooni of Ife Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi’s father, Pa Aderopo Ogunwusi(both pictured), has said that he will respect tradition that demands that he prostrates for his son.

Though the larger Yoruba tradition demands that the younger ones prostrate while greetings their elders, the retired On-Air-Person¬ality with the Osun State Broad¬casting Corporation (OSBC), Pa Ogunwusi told The Sun that the current status of his son has reversed the situation.

‘There is no cause for alarm. Even though the Yoruba culture forbids that father should prostrate for his son, the position of an Ooni is a powerful one that he must be adored, respected by all and sundry.

“Whenever occasions arise that I prostrate for him, I will gladly do so the way other young and old will prostrate for him. It is his office and tradition that we are respecting and we will continue to do so,’’ Ooni’s father said.
