This is arguably the most popular lineage praise in Yorubaland. I'm proud I'm from Offa.


That's for my town, for my agboole gangan(family origin), it starts as:
'omo olomu aperan, omo olowo agogo'

Would that be the one adjacent to the church. . .and directly facing the Olobun shrine?  Back in its cottage style days, if you stood at the front steps and lookout you could see all down towards Ebute in one direction and Enu Owa in the other?

I love Offa people. I should have married an Offa girl but . . . that's in the past now! wink

Its nice reading family, town and the lineage praises from Ofa people who are there when the precious MOREMI shrine was burnt down. Where una wan go sing these praises. Is it in the mosque or the Church. The Ancestral shrines are the most important of the heritage to protect. It defines us as people with heritage not just those your lullaby. Ofa people wake up, wake up to ur time and show your black values.
