The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ọjájá II, believes all women are witches and have manipulative qualities.]
He revealed this while hosting the cast of the reality show “Real Housewives of Lagos” on Thursday.
In a video posted on Instagram, notable cast members like Iyabo Ojo, Chioma Ikokwu, and Tania Omotayo engaged with the monarch in his palace.
In the video, Ooni’s queen, Aderonke Ademiluyi-Ogunwusi, warmly welcomed the guests and provided guidance on how to address the king as he entered the palace.
During the interaction, the Ooni of Ife shared insights with the Real Housewives of Lagos cast, delving into the subject of witchcraft.
He expressed the viewpoint that all women inherently possess a spirit associated with witchcraft, emphasizing its connection to manipulation.
“Every woman has that witchcraft spirit in them, but you know, people just probably think it is a negative thing, but witchcraft is all about manipulation.
“If you know how to manipulate very well, that’s the power of a woman. You have a natural manipulative spirit, and you should manipulate in a very positive way,” the monarch said.
In reply, Iyabo Ojo sought clarification, questioning whether the king intended to imply that all women were witches.
The king confirmed this notion, promptly emphasizing that they were “good witches.”
