Ooni Of Ife Invites All To The Olojo Festival...

The Ooni of Ife, His Imperial Majesty, Oba Adéyeyè Enitan Ògúnwùsì (Òjàjà II) is calling on all visitors far and wide to come and celebrate the official YORUBA NEW YEAR as pioneered in Ile Ife, Nigeria.

 He explains:
“with my global outreach initiative which is creating a new epic movement, I have been travelling out of my kingdom to visit other nations around the world to share our own stories, delivering academic lectures, re-charting the leading role of Yoruba nation in the world and to reignite the immortal Yoruba spirit of enlightenment as the glowing fountain of knowledge that gave birth to the world civilisation”.Ooni said.

He further stated that “the existence of Ile-Ife as the source of humanity has been genetically studied and attested to by the scientific work of Dr. Etienne Papin and his 24 man-team at Institute​ Pasteur in Paris, France. The studies corroborate the genetic existence of the Yoruba collective in Nigeria at more than 100,000 years ago-with two distinct main groups, Khoe-San of South Africa splitting away at 87,000 years ago and Mbuti of DRC parting from Yoruba at 56,000 years ago respectively”.

Therefore, and according to Ooni “OLOJO is notably the foremost festival that the world has ever known. Its existence was a triumphant initiative from divinity to humanity as it was also the primal source to the creation of other festivals.
OLOJO celebrates the dawn of the first day of existence on earth, as described and reference in many holy and religious books when God said let there be light and there was light. I am keen to use the event as an opportunity for the world to come and experience our authentic cultural festivities.”
OLÓJÓ – The Olojo Festival is set to showcase a rich Yoruba cultural celebration that is geared towards the promotion of cultural values, global peace and prosperity. It will celebrate the ancient magnificent and splendour of ADE-AARE CROWN in the public square, exhibitions of Yoruba antiquities, display of cultural troupes, other materials of the culture and much more for all visitors and residents to enjoy the weekend of September 29th to October 2nd, 2017. Olojo Festival cultural weekend will be held at convenient locations near the Palace(Ile-Oodua) at Enuwa in Ile Ife, State of Osun, Nigeria.

The Festival as a traditional and cultural event was attended by approximately 250,000 people last year 2016, placing the event as the third largest biggest festival in the world after Rio Mardi Gras in Brazil with 500, 000 attendees and Holi in India receiving the most visitors at 2 million plus. The Olojo festival is unique as it centres on the once-a-year wearing of the ADE-AARE CROWN which is arguably is the oldest monarchic crown in existence; as it has been strictly maintained over millennia and 51 successive Ooni’s wearing the exact same crown.

    1. Blessed race with blessed land that his home to all .

  2. That is nice but I don't attend stuffs like this.

    1. Why? The western world sold thier culture (Christianity) and u gullibly accepted. Better trace your root

  3. Sure say Food go reach everybody 🙄

  4. This man's carriage and intelligence is just so overwhelming#love oh love❤#

  5. #Maybe it's not always about trying to fix something that's broken. Maybe it's about starting over and creating something better*

  6. I'd love to attend but are there good hotels in Ile Ife to accomodate guests? People coming from outside Nigeria will expect at least a 4 star hotel with all amenities for their duration. With all the festivals held there, there is massive potential for tourism but little incentive from osun govt to propel its state to the 21st century. Perhaps kabiyesi can persuade the state to start investing more into this industry.

    1. The same state that can't pay workers salary? Joke!!!!
