Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, has said he believes all women are witches and manipulators.
He stated this on Thursday while hosting the cast of reality tv show, ‘Real Housewives of Lagos.’
In a video shared on social media, prominent cast of the show including Iyabo Ojo, Chioma Ikokwu, and Tania Omotayo were seen speaking with the monarch in his palace.
In the video, one of the monarch’s queens, 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 shared insights with the Real Housewives of Lagos cast, delving into the topic of witchcraft.
He expressed the belief that all women possess a spirit of witchcraft, stressing 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 natural manipulative spirit and you should manipulate in a very positive way,” the monarch said.
While seeking clarification, one of the cast, Iyabo Ojo, asked whether the king meant that all women were witches.
The king answered in the affirmative, but swiftly added that they are “good witches.”
