Yoruba race.
“ It is an embarrassment to a throne that is
older than him.
“ That is older than his lineage and even
anything he knows.
“ He cannot make such a statement without
a consensus.”
The son of the legendary singer, Fela Kuti
further said that a king who has performed
ritual rites has no right to refer to Jesus as
his father . He said, ”Yes, he is the king of
all religion. His duty is to protect the
citizens and respect their rites to free

going to worship with them.
”Imagine the Queen of England making a
statement that, “The pope is her father.”
“ by Swearing allegiance to the pope.
“ She says she no longer believes in the
archbishop of Canterbury and Anglican
church of England.

the Queen does not pander to them by
going to worship with them.

Speaking further, the singer also blasted
the Oluwo of Iwo land, Oba AbdulRasheed
Akanbi, over his claims that idol worship
among monarchs are responsible for the
crisis in the land.
