Meet 5 Nigerian Female Kings And The 2 Sacrifices They Made To Rule Their Kingdom

For a historical shift to take place, sacrifices must be made. In Nigeria, the traditional system of rulership is taken up by men who are called Kings while the women are given lesser positions.

While this is the case across all tribes in the country, few exemptions have been made that accommodated the idea of these 5 beautiful Nigerian women to become king. Their successful ascension on the throne to rule their kingdom couldn't have been possible without them sacrificing 2 things.

1) HRM Moyinoluwa Olubunmi Falowo

Moyinoluwa is a beautiful female king otherwise known as regent of Ibure in Ifedore Local Government Area of Ondo State. She ascended the throne in April 2019 after the demise of her father.

Unlike the male kings, these female kings had to sacrifice something before taking up the throne.

1) They would not get pregnant while sitting on the throne. We all know how women love to have their children, but it will not be so for these regents until they step down from the throne.

2) They cannot dress as women. Since the position they occupy is masculine, they are expected to do away with female outfits and put on male outfits made for kings. This they shall adhere to until they step down from the throne. It is not negotiable.
