About the Awujale king title Prof  Akintoye wrote:

“After leaving Ife, the traditions say, Ogborogan went on a long, circuitous and adventurous journey through Imesi (in Ijesa) and through the Ondo forests before he entered the Ijebu country. All along this long route, he added more and more people to his following. By the time he arrived at Ijebu-Ode, he had become so famous that the people were excited to receive him. With shouts of Oba wa n’ita (“ The king is in our streets”), the inhabitants welcomed him as their king. From this manner of his reception, he is said to have acquired the new name Obanta. The title Awujale, the title of Ijebu-Ode kings, was created in his time.”
