Traditional foods include egusi soup, black soup, pounded yam and there is this yellow sweet-like light snack (I forget the name)

Binis favoured white-coloured clothing for ceremonial events.

...... before the reign of the Obas, the bini kingdom was ruled by absolute monarchs called the Ogisos.

Don't know if there was a referendum or revolution, but absolute ruler-ship gave way to the Oba system....
