“Yorùbá Real history: Oró ikomojade ! http://ooduarere.com/news-from-nigeria/breaking-news/yoruba-real-history-oro-ikomojade/ http://ooduarere.com/news-from-nigeria/breaking-news/yoruba-real-history-oro-ikomojade/#respond Sun, 19 Feb 2017 05:38:49 +0000 http://ooduarere.com/?p=80558 Do you know that back in those days in Yorùbá land, if we give birth to a new born baby:
Baby boy will be named on the 9th day of birth
Baby girl will be named on the 7th day of birth
A boy and a girl twin will be named on the 8th day of birth.
There is what we call Oró ikomojade. On the 7th or 9th day of birth, the eldest woman will carry the new born baby in her hands at the entrance of the house, people will pour water on the roof of the house, when a drop of the cold water touch the baby’s skin, he/she will cry out and people will shout “welcome to our world baby, the World is sweet please eat with us”.
Before the day the baby is given a name, the names they call the baby are ìkókó, Tunfulu, Alejo, etc.

Real history of Yorùbá culture in Marriage As explained in Ogbe Ògúndá http://ooduarere.com/news-from-nigeria/breaking-news/real-history-of-yoruba-culture-in-marriage-as-explained-in-ogbe-ogunda/ http://ooduarere.com/news-from-nigeria/breaking-news/real-history-of-yoruba-culture-in-marriage-as-explained-in-ogbe-ogunda/#respond Sun, 19 Feb 2017 05:29:58 +0000 http://ooduarere.com/?p=80555 In the history of the Yorùbá people, marriage has been very significant and its a thing of joy. Marriage is not just something that happens between just a man and woman alone. Marriage includes a relationship between the husband, wife, mothers, fathers and relatives.
As explained in Ogbe Ògúndá that it was the suffer that was inflicted on Orunmila in Iwo that we now regard as “Iyawo/Iya Ìwó” meaning “the suffering of Iwo”. So the meaning of wife is Iyawo. Which means every man must value them because real and Good Iyawo are hard to come by, so when you have one, keep and treat her well.
Without wasting much of our time, let’s see the steps our fore fathers follow to getting married to someone.
Step 1 is Ìfojúsóde:
If a guy is ripe for marriage, his parents will help him look out for a good lady to get married to because they believe he’s young and they know more than he do. So after getting a good lady, the next thing is
Step 2 Ìtoro
Ìtoro means to go ask for something. Very early in the morning, the parents of the boy will go to the lady’s house to ask for the permission of the lady’s parent to allow their daughter to marry their son. The boy’s parent may go with a keg of palm wine, Kolanuts and bitter kola. So after discussing, the lady’s parent will tell them to come back for their reply.
Step 3 is Ìwádìí meaning Findings or research.
The two parents are first going to meet a Babaláwo tó do some findings, to know if the two of them are compatible and to know what their future holds. If Ifa comes out positive, the parents will go into the village to do some research about the family their child wants to get a partner from. They WI want to know if they are good people, debtors, thieve, arrogant or if they have family disease like epilepsy or maybe they have any record of madness in the family.
The next step is Ìjóhen/Ìsíhùn/Ìjéhòo
This means the reply from the lady’s family to the guy’s family that “Yes the agreed to allow their daughter marry their son. So the guy’s family will have to pay then for saying Yes which means “owo bàbá gbó, ìyá gbà”. So from this point, the lady and the boy can now start standing together to talk.
The next is Àna síse:
This is the next step when the male will be taking care of his fiance’s family. He will get then gifts, when they have work to do on their farm, he will go and help them. He will be there for them when they need him until the lady is finally ready to go to her husband’s house.
The next step is Ìdána
This is the step where the husband and his family will go to the lady’s house to do the proper rights before they start preparing for marriage. They family of the husband will go to the lady’s house with Yam, honey, sugarcane, salt, Àadun, with cloth, Kolanuts, bitter kola, alligator pepper, white plate with cover and money. So all these materials are to be used to pray for the two young couple. So after this, the two family are going to conclude on when the marriage is going to be. So after this, the next thing is the D-Day of the marriage ceremony.
To be continued… ”

Read this Article on:
Through Inconvenience & Discomfort, Growth is Promoted. “Dedicated to the spreading and sharing information and knowledge Hidden for centuries. Ifa is a nature religion that helps to develop realistic relationships with the natural forces that govern the universe.” Ifa is not strictly religion, history, philosophy, or science, but Ifa contains Religion, History, Philosophy, and Science within itself by which wonderful things are performed. Ifa is not any one thing, but it contains everything within it, in it totality. Ifa Often Speaks In Parables.

HERITAGE The Vision Continues…
Is devoted to sharing the knowledge and wisdom of traditional spirituality and culture in terms that the average person can hope to understand. Also, to create an environment that promotes world communities. HERITAGE aims to inspire a mutual understanding and cultural dialog through spirit-music-art and mental wellness.

IFA – Spiritual Tradition:
Ifa is an indigenous, earth centered African spiritual tradition which was conceptualized by the West African people. According to oral literature, the practice of Ifa originated as far back as eight thousand years ago. Therefore, Ifa may indeed be the oldest monotheistic religion in the world.

Ifa is balanced on three legs: Olodumare (Creator) – Orisha
These practices took root from the time when the knowledge of African spirituality first arrived in the New World in the hearts and minds of African people brought here as slaves. During those tragic days, if the religion were to survive at all, it had to be practiced in secret, hidden behind Christian icons. These secret practices became a necessary part of keeping African traditions from being completely destroyed in this part of the world.

In responding to the realities of life in the West, African spiritual traditions subsequently have been abused by some priests and priestesses who, in their willingness to use sacred energy to control and frighten others, are no different from their counterparts in other religions. There are also those who insist on keeping our tradition undercover. Keeping our practices invisible adds to the inability of non-practitioners to see who we really are: teachers, farmers, doctors, lawyers, moms and dads, small business owners, engineers, and other normal people.
African spirituality, in its essence, celebrates the oneness that exists between the Creator and the Creation.

The breath of God is in all.
Ifa and the ceremonial life that it generates constitute the organizing principle of the traditional West African religious vision. It is a view that finds human destiny “rooted in the breath of God Almighty”. Nothing happens by chance. There is a reason for everything, and it is the duty of human beings to recognize this mystery. Within the Odu lay the hidden messages of the unseen influences. These messages are best interpreted by a well trained diviner during a divination session.
The Foundation provides genuine Ifa Divination in the original African form from a highly trained Ifa Priest. The process of divination opens the channels of communication between Orunmila, and ourselves. When serious issues of a job, love, health, children, negative energy etc. must be dealt with, only a personal divination with a skilled Diviner can provide the specific answers and solutions.

Life Path and Guardian Orisha Divination: The Life Path reading has been performed for thousands of years in Africa on the third day of a new child’s life. It is the reading that lays the foundation for your entire life, and it can now be performed for adults who never had this opportunity immediately following birth. In Ifa, while most individuals are intent only upon identifying their primary Guardian Orisa , the truth is that the selection of that Orisa to guide your life was specific to the path and energy you selected in the realm of the very moment of conception. Each of us has certain things we are meant to learn or accomplish during our lifetimes; this path will allow us to accomplish these most effectively. In addition, it will provide the energies necessary to allow us greater success, love, health, family and fulfillment in the rest of our experiences.

In this Life Path/Guardian Angel reading, the specific energies and their application to your everyday success as well as your emotional/spiritual success are clearly defined and explained. In addition, of course, this reading identifies the Orisha Energy you selected to help you most effectively traverse this path successfully. Your primary Orisha comprises the overwhelming amount of energy you will use to most effectively navigate your life path. In this Life Path Reading it is also possible to identify your Primary Guardian Ancestor, who will reside in your Ori and help you on your journey.

Religion is the Belief in and the acknowledgement of a superior being and the recognition of deities or forces and the worship of that superior being by prayer and propitiation. Such Worship can be direct to the superior being or through any recognized intermediary, deity or force.
Religion is everywhere an expression in one form or another of a sense of dependence on a power outside ourselves. A power Which we may speak of as spiritual or moral. It should also be clear that a belief in spiritual beings or indeed in anything else, cannot by itself constitute Religion.

A religion which consisted merely of belief without prayers, sacrifices, or rites of any kind would be no Religion at all…
** Religion of one kind “or” another is the only permitted language in which one could formulate the dream of becoming a free subject.

All it requires is: Live with a set of fellow crazy people, do all sorts of immoral things and win!

If only there could be an educating version of such. If only they could house intelligent scholars like this and make them compete for similar prizes. But, no! Our people do not encourage sanity. The best in Mathematics competitions walk home with ridiculous stipends. Laughable prizes while these morons in BBN earn millions for coming to suck breasts on International TVs.
What a generation! What a time! How do we nurture and produce the next Chike Obi’s, the next Chinua Achebe’s and the next Wole Shoyinka’s???? What foundations are we laying down for the coming generations? What message of hope and legacies are we leaving behind? Immoralities. Are we not losing our minds?
We should see that this programme is replaced with a more intelligent and educative programme.
Naija is broke yet the sponsors are wasting millions of Naira on an highly Immoral programme.
Pls what is the lesson on this Big Brother for our YOUTHS?
I am just thinking aloud.

Venezuela – Washington’s Latest Defamation – To Bring NATO to South America? http://ooduarere.com/news-from-nigeria/world-news/venezuela-washingtons-latest-defamation-to-bring-nato-to-south-america/ http://ooduarere.com/news-from-nigeria/world-news/venezuela-washingtons-latest-defamation-to-bring-nato-to-south-america/#respond Sat, 18 Feb 2017 06:45:17 +0000 http://ooduarere.com/?p=80544 by Peter Koenig

The Trump Administration has just accused Venezuela’s newly appointed Vice-President, Tareck El Aissami, of being involved in drug trafficking, thereby dishing out the usual criminal spiel – illegal sanctions against a foreign dignitary with travel bans and asset seizures. This is Washington’s abject behavior at its best, as are so many others around the world of similar nature.

Therefore, let me say upfront: We can protest as much as we want. The Anglo-Zionist empire in Washington and its European vassals do not care one bit. To the contrary, the more hapless protests there are, the more they laugh to themselves – ‘Bingo! We did it again. – Case closed. And sanctions stay. New ones are invented at will, wherever and whenever it pleases the empire. Because nothing happens from the opponents – other than hot air.

Sanctions – economic sanctions, as most of them are, can only stand and ‘succeed’, as long as countries, who oppose Washington’s dictate remain bound into the western, dollar-based, fraudulent monetary scheme. The system is entirely privatized by a small Zionist-led elite. FED, Wall Street, Bank for International Settlement (BIS), are all private institutions, largely controlled by the Rothschild, Rockefeller, Morgan et al clans. They are also supported by the Breton Woods Organizations, IMF and World Bank, conveniently created under the Charter of the UN.

Few progressive economists understand how this debt-based pyramid scam is manipulating the entire western economic system. When in a just world, it should be just the contrary, the economy that shapes, designs and decides the functioning of the monetary system and policy.

Even Russia, with Atlantists still largely commanding the central bank and much of the financial system, isn’t fully detached from the dollar dominion – yet.


‘Renegades’ of the US-globalized Deep State must de-dollarize and migrate towards the eastern SCO-based economy (SCO = Shanghai Cooperation Organization, including Russia, China, most of Central Asia, Pakistan, Iran; – and India for good or for bad, is a contender), where the future is, where huge and honest prospects of future economic development are emerging, especially the Chinese initiated New Silk Road, or OBOR – One Belt-One Road – that foresees an infrastructure, industrial and technological boom, connecting Vladivostok with Lisbon and Shanghai with Hamburg – and everything in between. China’s President Xi Jinping has opened the door for everyone to join – no force, sheer invitation.


This also means breaking loose from the IMF’s and World Bank’s debt tentacles and the rest of the western monetary gangsters. It doesn’t happen overnight, but steps towards regaining sovereignty should be initiated rather sooner than later – to reduce, speak withstand and eliminate sanction imposed damages. For Russia, despite the Atlantists, sanctions were a blessing. They are the best that could have happened to our economy, Mr. Putin said. They pushed us to promote an economy of self-reliance, especially in agriculture and industrial development. In 2015, Russia was the world’s first wheat exporter.


Back to drugs and fighting drug lords. The Plan Colombia which started in 2000 and has since cost about US$ 20 billion, was officially designed precisely to fight the drug mafia’s coca plantations and drug cartels. Yet, since the Plan begun, the surface of coca plantations has more than doubled in Colombia; and output efficiency today is almost three times what it was in 2000.

Washington’s fake accusations and outrageous slandering of Venezuela’s Vice President, Mr. Tareck El Aissami, are totally absurd. They are aiming in a first instance at further bad-mouthing Venezuela among the uneducated MSM-brainwashed international public. It’s ‘false news’ propaganda, attempting to pull Venezuela into the drug ‘war’ playing out between Colombia, Mexico and Peru – all fomented by Washington.


Up to his recent assignment as Vice-President, Mr. El Aissami was Interior Minister, successfully fighting drug mafias, covertly promoted by the DEA and the CIA. Clamping down on the new Vice-President might be a punishment for his unwavering fight against the US backed drug lords, while he was Interior Minister. In fact, during his ministerial tenure, Tareck Al Aissami, a man of full integrity, has hit hard the cartels of international drug dealers, capturing 102 drug lords, of whom 21 were extradited to the United States. To make things even more ridiculous, apparently Tareck Al Aissimi does not even hold a US visa neither has he any assets in the USA that could be frozen as claimed.


The bigger and larger scale agenda behind this latest defamation scheme maybe a monstrous attempt to bring NATO to South America. Yes, you read right – Pentagon’s European military branch, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. They have absolutely nothing to do in Latin America, but as long as nobody screams murder and acts against it – the impunity of the empire is almost bottomless.

The little publicized fact is that President Manuel Santos of Colombia has recently invited NATO to come to Colombia to help him ‘fight organized crime’ – meaning, most likely a new FARC war, easily revived with a few false flags – as already happened recently (http://thesaker.is/colombia-inviting-nato-to-fight-organized-crime-a-menace-for-latin-america/ ).

This move has been under preparation since 2012 / 2013, right from the beginning of Peace Negotiations between the Santos Government and FARC. It started with a so-called ‘best practice technical assistance agreement’ between NATO and Colombia – extendable to real troops and armory movements into Colombia – meaning automatically NATO spreading all throughout Latin America. The Natoization of LATAM! – What a prospect!


Venezuela with Hugo Chavez was the only country protesting already during Colombia’s initial negotiations with Brussels / NATO. Today, except for Venezuela, I don’t know of any other Latin American country that shouted out in protest. Not that it mattered, as nothing matters to the exceptional nation. But it would help spread awareness about what Washington has in store as its latest oppressing atrocity for Latin America.

Might this be one of the chief purposes of this intimidating defamation launched against Venezuela and her Vice President, whose ethical integrity is proven beyond doubt?

Straighten Up and Fly Right http://ooduarere.com/news-from-nigeria/world-news/straighten-up-and-fly-right/ http://ooduarere.com/news-from-nigeria/world-news/straighten-up-and-fly-right/#respond Fri, 17 Feb 2017 17:40:31 +0000 http://ooduarere.com/?p=80537 So, the die is cast. Trump is done for, Trump is a coward, Trump is a charlatan, Trump is a Russian agent, Trump is an idiot, etc etc etc. Blog is alive with ‘I told you so’ and ‘I knew he didn’t have it in him’.


Only a very very few of you have the stones dozens and in the end hundreds of our citizens, grandmothers and grandfathers, men and women and yes, teenagers, had during the last days of February ’14 when they blockaded, unarmed blockaded, the orcs in their bases and unarmed faced down the dreaded orc SBU when they tried to arrest Mr. Chalyi. How do you think these same ordinary citizens felt when on 26 February 2014 the Commander of the Russian Black Sea Fleet units in Sevastopol said in a short news interview that his orders, his mission statement, was to protect the Fleet, not the city of Sevastopol? Did they stop, did they give up hope and go home only to worry about the proverbial ‘knock on the door’? Hell no, they continued to blockade, they continued the struggle as more and more men, military age men, joined them and blockaded this peninsula and this city. What would you have done?


Mr. Trump is your last hope and you had better use it or lose it forever. No one else had the stones to stand up to what he’s stood up to in the last year. How many of you were at his rallies, how many of you helped him and his campaign? Are some of you complaining and predicting doom and gloom for Mr. Trump trying to help, to continue the struggle against those who are against him and those who are openly fomenting a coup d’etat against the sitting President of the United States of American? I think not, I think many of you were either along for the ride and at the first little thunderstorm immediately abandoned ship or were never really in the struggle to start with.


Know this. You have no chance but with this man, President Donald J. Trump. If he fails so do you, each and every one of you. Those of you who have the intestinal fortitude had better get out there and help rather than sitting on the sidelines in Starbucks and complaining over your overpriced coffee.


There are now four threads on this blog with together over 500 posts combined, almost all chanting ‘the end is near’. Yes, I agree, the end is indeed near, but not the end you think it is. President Trump is but three weeks in to his first term as President. Are most of you so feckless that if you don’t get your instant gratification you immediately turn on the man who was to gratify you? Again, I think not. For those of you who have the ability, get out there and help.


If you don’t help then whatever happens is on your hands just as much as it will be on the hands of those who are moving heaven and earth to destroy this presidency in it’s infancy. How are you going to explain that to your children and grandchildren? How are you going to explain that you were there when the last hope arose on the horizon and you watched that hope go down under a horde of barbarians and didn’t lift a finger to help? How will you explain that? I know I couldn’t and I won’t have to. But you will if you don’t get out there and help now.

Russian Long-Range Bombers Launch Cruise Missile Strikes on Daesh in Raqqa http://ooduarere.com/news-from-nigeria/world-news/russian-long-range-bombers-launch-cruise-missile-raqqa/ http://ooduarere.com/news-from-nigeria/world-news/russian-long-range-bombers-launch-cruise-missile-raqqa/#respond Fri, 17 Feb 2017 16:53:37 +0000 http://ooduarere.com/?p=80534 Russian Tu-95MS long-range bombers have launched cruise missile strikes on Daesh targets near the Syrian city of Raqqa, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

Russian strategic bombers destroyed several terrorist camps, training centers and a command post of one of the major terrorists’ units near Daesh’s de facto capital of Raqqa.

The ministry said that “reconnaissance means have confirmed the destruction of all designated [terrorist] targets” near Raqqa.

The strikes have been carried out by brand new X-101 cruise missiles.

The long-range bombers that took off from a Russian airfield flew over Iraq and Iran. After launching cruise missile strikes on Daesh targets, the bombers returned to Russia.

“Su-30SM and Su-35S provided air cover to the Russian bombers from the Hmeymim airbase.”

Meanwhile, the Pentagon said that Russian and US-led coalition’s militaries used mechanism on safety of flights over Syria to avoid any incidents near Raqqa, where the coalition is also conducting airstrikes.

Russia and the US signed the bilateral memorandum of understanding in October 2015 to ensure flight safety during combat missions over Syria.
