People, There's an interesting controversy going on in Nigeria about Yoruba origins. Oba of Benin Erediauwa had last week traced the history of Oduduwa to one Ekaledehan, a Benin Prince. The Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuwade said Oduduwa descended by Chain from Heaven - what a story!! (And to think I used to believe it ) Now Oba of Lagos is supporting the Oba of Benin on Yoruba history Some other accounts have it that Oduduwa originated from Egypt. (maybe he was "sudanized"?) and that it was a Yoruba prince who founded Benin and not the other way round. Which is which?
