The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ọjájá II, says he believes all women are witches and manipulators.
Oni stated this on Thursday while hosting the cast of the reality show “Real Housewives of Lagos.”
In a video shared on Instagram, prominent cast members, including Iyabo Ojo, Chioma Ikokwu, and Tania Omotayo, were seen engaging with the monarch in his palace.
In the video, Ooni’s queen, Aderonke Ademiluyi-Ogunwusi, extended a warm welcome to 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 topic of witchcraf.
He expressed the belief that all women possess a spirit of witchcraft, emphasizing that this spirit is associated with 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.
Responding, Iyabo Ojo sought clarification, asking whether the king meant that all women were witches.
In response, the king affirmed this but swiftly added that they are “good witches.”
