In the past few days, there have been speculations that the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi III asked fuji star K1 De Ultimate not to prostrate before other monarchs, as the Moyegun of Yoruba land.
Concise News reports that K1 De Ultimate was honoured with the title at the palace of the Alaafin on Monday, January 13.
Prior to the installation ceremony, social media posts claimed that Oba Lamidi asked the Fuji king not to prostrate to other monarchs after he has been installed as the first Mayegun.
But addressing the claims, Alaafin said his statement was misquoted, saying he never asked him disrespect any royal father or culture.
According to the monarch, the kings are the custodians of culture and deserve respect, but the ones who go about clubbing and drinking do not deserve such honours.
“I did not mean that he should disrespect the royal fathers. He understands the culture and I am not saying that he should disrespect the culture. But kings who go about clubbing and drinking do not deserve any respect. Accord deserving honour and respect to kings; they are custodians of culture. But there are kings that are not worthy of honour and respect.” the alaafin said.
