As preparations towards this year's Olojo festival gathers momentum, Ooni of Ife, His Imperial Majesty, Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II has called for total repackaging of African culture to remove negative tag put on cultural beliefs of the black race.



The monarch said contrary to the view of many people within and outside the continent, dieties and forbears of the Africans were all servants of God, who did exceptionally well in delivering on the mandate given to them by God.


Speaking in his palace during the media launch of 2017 Olojo Festival, Ooni Ogunwusi, who gave historical background of the festival, disclosed that during Olojo, the sacred Are crown, regarded as the oldest crown in the world is worn by Ooni once in a year.


According to him, Olojo is the celebration of the first dusk and dawn, adding that during the festival, Ooni will wear Are crown and take a trip to Oke Mogun, the spot where the first dusk and dawn happened.


Declaring Olojo a global festival, Ooni Ogunwusi called for proper education of the younger generation on the significance of major cultural celebrations of Yoruba people.


Highlighting activities and events lined up to make this year's festival a rewarding outing for tourists and participants alike, Ooni said 2017 Olojo will feature reorientation workshop for the youth on culture, football competition, ayo Olopon, fashion show and traditional musical night.


The Ooni is expected to move into a 7-day seclusion to commune with his ancestors and pray for the nation before the grand finale of Olojo slated for 30th of September. He added that some members of black caucus of Pennsylvania House of Representatives and about 150 other black Americans have already indicated interest to participate during this year's Olojo festival.

Short of words. Please note, one is perfect. But I think Wuraola should have kept silent and not release any statement cos I did not believe all those stories that came out few weeks ago. Until she released those statements herself. I know she truly loves Ooni but I guess her patience was not enough. Now it makes it difficult for her to return back to the palace. Will she ever marry again? She is young without a child, A first class monarch has climb her. I never saw this coming at all. Although I know she was never happy in that marriage from her body language. But we fall apart and make up again. That statement and change of name was too fast. And I'm sure it was that fake picture that went viral a day before her statement released that trigged this. But she should remember Buki too was ridicule for her to become a queen. She did the unthinkable. It was just a Photo shoot. They've both been married 3times so they should know better. If she can humble her self and beg the man. As long as no emotional and physical abuse is involved. I will love them back together. One love!

Kabiyesi worry not about naysayers. Oba Adekeye the Abepa of jogaland just had a baby boy after 30 odd years of having his daughter. Ki lo le se olohun mi, ki lo le se? Iwo ti o da aiye ati orun ki lo le se? Asiko olohun lo ju.

I loved the queen too. I was affected by their break up news like they're my family. It still bothers me wen I think about it. She seems like a good person. I wish they'll say it's pr stunt.

Humble herself and beg the man? So she shylet them keep tarnishing her image with infidelity and infertility stories abi?beg the man my foot! Marriage isn't a do or die issue biko.so are you saying Bukky too should have begged?ooni should go and check himself out.he has issues! What if she marries a white man?do you think he will care?stay there, you will soon see her marry again.i don't like her but it's high time women stop being blamed for break ups. Imagine saying she should beg,did she tell you she wants to remain there?
