“It’s disrespectful”- Moment Pete Edochie, Kanayo .O. Kanayo greeted Ooni at a party causes a stir

Yoruba monarch, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi Enitan, the Ooni of Ife, is currently trending on social media over a video showing the moment he exchanged greetings with veteran actors Pete Edochie and Kanayo O. Kanayo.

They were at Elizbeth Jack Rich’s 40th birthday dinner party.

The video which Kanayo shared on his Instagram page showed the moment he, alongside Pete, approached Ooni’s table at the event.

They gave the traditional ruler the popular Igbo back handshake.

Sharing the video, Kanayo added a caption that read:

“Last night was awesome @peteedochie @babarex0 @chidimokeme and the very outstanding His Royal Majesty, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi Enitan, Ooni of Ife.”

The video has since sparked reactions online as it didn’t sit down well with some netizens who said it was disrespectful, while others blamed the Ooni.

amflappys: “If you don’t respect yourself no one will .. if the real and former king is on the seat this nonsense will not happen.. I respect the work and talent of the legend but if the king start respecting the throne and act like a king this madness will not happen. If anything remove your cap.”

rahmonoladipo: “Pls always respect traditions, this is disrespectful to our culture.”

blazi.ngfire: “They gave the Oba a three handshake which is how great men are traditionally greeted in Igboland, do you expect Chief Pete Edochie to prostrate for the Oba it’s not done, we are NdIgbo..”

iam_dor_dior: “Oni of Ife is not a king, he only rule Ife not the whole state. He is not a king.”
