Mixed reactions trail encounter between Ooni, Pete Edochie

Mixed reactions have trailed the encounter between the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi and Veteran Nollywood actor, Pete Edochie.

In a viral video posted online, the Ooni and Edochie, who were both dignitaries at the 40th birthday of Elizabeth Jack-Rich, exchanged pleasantries by shaking hands .

The handshake sparked reactions from Nigerians, with many saying it is a disrespect to the traditional ruler, while others saw nothing wrong with the exchange.

Reacting, @truehomeboy1 said” He is old n weak, ooni understand, and besides ooni is not on his seat on his throne, his friends can greet n shake him, if he decides, but as long as he is in his pale and on his throne. You can charge Pete Edochie

@reminola said “Pete Edochie is a red cap chief. The Ooni is a cultured man, he greeted him according to PE’s tradition but seated. Two men who understand culture. The rest of the farm animals will continue to bray.

@tessy_tegIn said “his palace, Pete can prostrate before Ooni,but in a party? Very inappropriate nau. Imagine just rolling on the floor there .. won’t it be funny. Besides, Pete Edochie, na old man with big size, he fit bend down, na many people go come lift am up

@ugwu_nwabodo “Ooni has wisdom which is the first value in the Yoruba system. Pete Edochie is an old man and also a Chief, and as an Igbo man the Ooni doesn’t expect him to bow down so instead it has to be handshake. That’s the only way that could have turned out.

@maxmaxwell23: “The blame is on the Ooni of Ife for going to that kind place and for also accepting a hand shake from people;I’m not against the nollywood stars but they supposed to bow before the stool of the king of ife.if it was the former ooni of ife who could try this and even give him hand shake?”

@iamflappys said “If you don’t respect yourself no one will .. if the real and former king is on the seat this nonsense will not happen.. I respect the work and talent of the legend but if the king start respecting the throne and act like a king this madness will not happen. If anything remove your cap .
