Not all the water in the rough rude sea can wash the balm from an anointed king. And no degree of angst or animosity could divest the chosen one of royalty. Thus no matter the degree of discontent nursed by Prince Adetunji Ogunwusi over his loss of the throne to his younger sibling, the incumbent Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, he knows there was no way he could depose the imperial monarch.

Widely acknowledged as the one whom the breath of worldly men cannot depose, Ooni Adeyeye’s emergence as the new paramount ruler of Ile Ife kingdom allegedly caused bad blood between him and his elder sibling who also contested vigorously for the much coveted throne. Unknown to many, the contest was keenest between the duo who are blood brothers and big players in the real estate sector, particularly in the Lekki-Ajah axis of Lagos. The contest for the throne eventually ignited a family feud between them as Prince Adetunji refused to step down for his brother until their father mounted pressure on him to accept the divine choice of the oracle and yield the throne to his younger sibling.

Following interventions of their parents, distant relatives and influential natives of Ife, Prince Adetunji reluctantly agreed to step down for his brother. He subsequently traveled out of the country for months after his younger brother was announced as the new Ooni. Sources within the family disclosed that their father had to lead other family members to Lagos to plead with Prince Adetunji to step down. But the two brothers have since resolved their differences and are reportedly on very good terms.
