LAGOS, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA) – Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ọjájá II, the Ooni of Ife, on Thursday played host to the cast of the widely acclaimed reality show, “Real Housewives of Lagos”.
In a video shared on Instagram, prominent cast members including Iyabo Ojo, Chioma Ikokwu, and Tania Omotayo were seen engaging with the monarch in his palace.
The visit took an intriguing turn as the Ooni delved into a discussion about witchcraft with his guests.
During the interaction, Oba Ogunwusi asserted that every woman inherently possesses a spirit of witchcraft, emphasising that this quality is essentially about manipulation.
He enlightened the guests, stating, “The world should be a better place, especially for women. You are very powerful. You rule the world,”
“Your power is limitless. You have so many influences on the society.
“The black people would say witchcraft. Every woman has that witchcraft spirit in them. You know people just probably think it is a negative thing. But witchcraft is all about manipulation.
“If you know how to manipulate very well. And then that is the power of a woman. You have a natural manipulative spirit. And you should manipulate in a very positive way.” he said.
In response to the revelation by Ooni, Iyabo Ojo sought clarification, questioning whether the king meant that all women were witches.
The Ooni affirmed this but swiftly added a nuanced perspective, labeling them as “good witches.”
Laura Ikeji-Kanu and Faith Morey were, however, absent from the event.
The final episode of RHOL 2 will be aired on 1 December.
