The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, hosted the cast of the popular reality show Real Housewives of Lagos, including Iyabo Ojo, in his palace.
In a video clip shared on Instagram, the monarch referred to them as witches and addressed them on the topic of witchcraft.
The visit, featuring Iyabo Ojo, Chioma Ikokwu, and Tania Omotayo, showed them in the king’s palace.
Ooni’s queen, Aderonke Ademiluyi-Ogunwusi, welcomed the guests and provided guidance on addressing the king upon his entrance.
During the interaction with the Real Housewives of Lagos cast, the Ooni of Ife claimed that all women possess witchcraft spirits and are manipulative nature.
He said, “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. And that’s the power of a woman. You have natural manipulative spirit and you should manipulate in a very positive way.”
In response to this revelation, Iyabo Ojo sought clarification, asking if the king meant that all women were witches.
The king affirmed this but promptly added that they are “good witches.”
