Royalty is a very important thing in many African countries, particularly in Nigeria as powerful kings are sometimes seen as an extension of the gods on earth.
In the past, kings were very well feared and perhaps unapproachable as people dared not cross their boundaries with them. However, things are a little bit different these days, thanks to enlightenment.
One of the top class kings in the country, the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi Ojaja II, is undoubtedly a man of the people as he mixes freely with his subjects and also tries to raise awareness for their cause.
Just recently, the Ooni was spotted walking down a runway at the Africa Fashion Week show held in Lagos. According to reports, the king walked on the runway to promote African fashion and advocate for made in Nigeria products as well as job creation for youths in the fashion industry.
In the video, the MC praised the king as he was called on stage to walk. The audience stood up as they cheered the Ooni on, obviously impressed by his majestic gait and African attire.

It was indeed a very lovely sight to behold.
