Ooni who is currently on a 5-day working visit to Brazil in continuation of his global tour for African People’s Peace and Progress Agenda decorated the couple during a privately held meeting.

The monarch also unveiled some initiatives for the reunification of the over 100 million Afro-Brazilians via his program tagged “Back To Home”, visiting states of Sao Paulo, Rio De Janeiro, Salvador Bahia and Brasilia.


Ooni highlighted the need to strengthen cultural and trade ties between Brazil and Africa. He also advocated for direct link and access to Brazil from Nigeria which will promote trade and commerce and also cultural exchange between the two great countries.

In his response, President Lula da Silva thanked Ooni for his love for him and his wife who he referred to as “Ooni’s daughter” lauded the king for his mission towards reunification of not just the Afro-Brazilians but also Africans worldwide which he believes means well for the global peace.
