Check Out Names And Tittles Of The 10 Powerful Kings In Yoruba Land

Names And Tittles Of The 10 Powerful Kings In Yoruba Land.

Do kings still exist in Nigeria?. Of course they

do. Yoruba people call them oba, which means

‘someone who presides over everything. Kings

are recognized as deities too just like the likes

of Sango( god of thunder).

In a place where absolute monarch is their

system of government, kings are the Supreme


Kings are mostly male, only on exceptional

cases where a king dies and the next in line

has not been confirmed would you find a

female playing the role of a king. Although that

doesn’t make her a king, she is just watching

over the throne till the next king is being

confirmed. They call them Regents(Adele).
