WHY ARE YORUBA OBAS FORBIDDEN FROM LOOKING AT THE INNER PART OF THEIR ROYAL CROWNS?
By convention, Yoruba Obas are forbidden from looking straight into the inner part of their royal crowns.
However, there is an exception to this sacred and general rule. Throughout Yorubaland, there is one, only one royal father among the whole lot who is not affected by that strict rule.
In other words, he, alone, is free to remove and put back the sacred crown, off and on, all by himself, without offending the various deities associated with royalty.
But, who is this exceptional and lucky royal father? And why is he so qualified?
