Anti-Ooni Poetic Song: Rotimi Makinde Offers Half a Million Reward For Info On Singer's Whereabouts



A former member of the House of Representatives in Nigeria, Hon. Rotimi Makinde has expressed displeasure at the recent heat and tension generated in the ancient town of Ile-Ife as a result of a poetic song considered to be inimical to thel throne and person of the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II.


The poetic song popularly known in Yoruba land as "Ewi" was said to have been sung by a yet to be known poet and had been in circulation in the town and its environs.


There are speculations that the founder and proprietor of Oduduwa University Ile ife, Dr Ramon Adedoyin who contested the Ife stool with the incumbent Ooni was behind the composition and circulation of the hateful poetic song (ewi).


To unravel the identity of the singer and his possible collaborators, Makinde, the founder of Oodua FM in Ile-Ife has offered to reward anyone with useful information on the singer with a cash sum of N500,000.


The former representative of Ife Federal Constituency noted that his resolve to commision a private investigator to unravel the mysteries surrounding the Ewi song was to save the Ooni throne from being ridiculed and also to ensure that innocent people were not punished.


Hon. Makinnde said, "There is 500,000 for any body with useful information leading to the arrest of the culprit (ewi singer/poet)."
