Omoluabi Vs Capitalism System

Money is king in a failed capitalist system where lies are told for profit and power.


Omoluabi is a perfect socialist system where làákà’yè (knowledge, wisdom & understanding) is first (King), Ìwà Omolúàbí – (integrity) – 2nd, Akínkanjú or Akin – (Valour) 3rd, Anísélápá tí kìíse òle – (Having a visible means of livelihood) -4th, iyi – (Honour) 5th and the last is owó tàbí orò – (Money or wealth)

Omoluabi – Money Is Ranked Number Six(6) In The Core Value System In Oodualand (Yorubaland).

What are the first five you may ask?
1. The first is làákà’yè – The application of knowledge, wisdom & understanding… (Ogbón and ìmò òye)

2. The second is Ìwà Omolúàbí – (integrity) Someone with integrity is a man/woman of their words. If you have all the wealth in the world but lack integrity, you are not worth a thing. Integrity is combined with iwa, (character) which we regard as Omolúàbí.

3. The third is Akínkanjú or Akin – (Valour)
That is why Balóguns is second-in-command to the leaders in Yoruba land.
Balóguns are people that can lead them to war. To lead with great courage in the face of danger, especially in battle. Yoruba people have no respect for cowards.

4. The fourth is Anísélápá tí kìíse òle – (Having a visible means of livelihood) A person must be identified with a visible means of livelihood that guarantees a lawful income or sustenance. His or her profession or job must be open and legally approved by society, and not through cheating or forcefulness.

5. The fifth is iyi – (Honour) Yoruba people place a premium on the gait with which individuals carry themselves and public reputation.
That is why Yorùbá people usually say when you set out to look for money and you meet honour on the way then you don’t need the journey anymore, because if you get the money, you will still use it to buy honour.

6. The last in the Yorùbá value system is owó tàbí orò – (Money or wealth) If putting money ahead of the other five, then you are nobody in Yoruba land of the olden days. Unfortunately, this is being pushed to the front burner nowadays due to the erosion of our value system

Reno Omokri Congratulates Nigeria as the Department of Motor Vehicles in the U.S adopts Yoruba Language

I congratulate Nigeria for the adoption of a Nigerian language, Yoruba, as a testing language for the Department of Motor Vehicles in the United States. Similarly, since 2014, Selfridges and Harrods have been employing Yoruba-speaking staff, and the UK Metropolitan Police Service has been hiring Yoruba-speaking Constables and Officers since 2015. Elsewhere, I have written about traversing the American continent and studying the staying power of Yoruba language and culture in the Americas. Enslaved people were taken from all over ...
