Kuna hadithi najua kuhusu vile wahenga walinena,

Oju to ba ri Gelede, ti de opin iran (au iron?) 

“The eyes that have seen Gelede, have seen the ultimate spectacle”

ukweli, au siyo? infinitely grateful for standing tall on the backs of wahenga wangu na wa hii ardhi tunayoishi

kama vile Baba Awoyinfa Ifaloju alisema “We, those that follow Ifa’s

Religious Philosophy and other African systems have this as our responsibility to give our efforts and support, to make this year’s events [honouring our wahenga] memorable and serve our progenitors justly and rightly for what they have done for us to be standing where we are today, had it not been, where would we be ?

Ifa husema,

Egbe olowo l’egbee wa                The group of the owners of wealth is our group

Egbe olomo l’egbee wa                The group of the owners of children is our group

Egbe Oroki i s egbe ole                 The Oroki group is not a group of thieves

Aje olomo l’aje awa                        Powerful beings (who are) the owners of  children  are our powerful beings.

E tele mi ka’lo                                   You[pl.] can follow along with me,

E le r’omo gbe jo                              (so that) you can carry pikin and dance

(joyfully)

hadithi njoo, ukweli njoo, utamu kolea,

infinitely grateful for those among us who beba de sage secrets of loving and share their gifs in abundance,

hadithi like these, symbols ya postcards of inspiring & replenishing hubs na gif exchange networks,

make me so proud and happy to be an Afrikan growing with/in revolushunary learning vijiji in [love wid] de diaspora
