Obasanjo, 82, prostrates for new Ooni of Ife, 41 (photos)

I'm sure the Ooni would have been uncomfortable and perhaps tried to stop him...but trust Baba...lol Former President Olusegun Obasanjo prostrated for the Ooni of Ife during his visit to the monarch's palace earlier today. More photos after the cut...

Even though it looks kind of strange to some people, I think OBJ just broke d record of d 1st prominent Nigerian public figure & elder statesman to respect tradition & culture regardless of his age or anybody's as a true Yoruba man. MAJOR yoruba 'obas' are respected in this manner.Seeing this for d 1st time sha...At d same time,Baba's prostration is funny!

A genuine custodian of the Yoruba culture and traditions. Whilst I am not a follower of Obasanjo, I must give credence and honour to whom it is due. And with this token I shall commend him for his ideology and belief in upholding the traditions of Oduduwa and actively practising this philosophy.
