It would be recalled that Mr Macaroni visited the revered king at his palace recently and Nigerians reacted positively when the video emerged on social media.
In the new skit that has received commendations, the monarch used the opportunity to promote the Yoruba tradition of respecting elders.
Oba Ogunwusi preached on the need to kneel down or prostrate for elders as a sign of respect.
Below are some of reactions
I respect the Yoruba tradition, but as a man from the east, if I come before the presence of oni of ife, I will stand and greet him, or I may bowl,but not kneel and prostrate. I love the Yoruba tradition and custom anyways. They hardly disrespect an elder and that's plaudable.

Nice joke, it was funny.
It will be more appreciable if the farming profession can be portrayed in a modern way.
Imagine if those cutlasses and hoes are replaced with machines.
However, the norms message is well portrayed.
