On Saturday, 18 July, 2020, the entertainment industry witnessed the entry of another celebrity as the the highly revered Yoruba monarch, Ooni of Ife, His Imperial Majesty, Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, made his first appearance in a comedy skit alongside popular comedian, Debo Adedayo, popularly known as Mr Macaroni.
The two-minute comedy skit which was released on Saturday, 18 July, 2020, has gone viral leaving various reactions from social media users who either see the Skit as an avenue to further push the comedian amongst other things.
It was learnt that Adedayo visited the Ooni’s palace in Ile-Ife, Osun State earlier this week in the company of some movie stars and that undoubtedly led to such a first of its kind collaboration between the traditional ruler and a popular comedian.
It is believed that the comedian seized such an opportunity of the visit to feature the King and some of the palace officers in the new skit.
The video shows the traditional ruler encouraging Yorubas not to forsake the traditions of which respect being portrayed in form of kneeling and prostrating for elders is taken serious.
This is not really a surprise to many as the Ooni has always been known to be a youth person has he has always been at the forefront of youth development through his various programs targeted towards the youths of the nation.
This video skit has no doubt further established his strong commitment and interest in the youths, it’s indeed a testament of his love for the youths.
