ijakan ijakan,



ti won ja nile olalomi,



o se oju tani?



o se oju koro ninu oko.

afonja ke?! the real afonjas are the Ilorin people, as for me I am "olofa", ofa means arrow, so my ancestors were good in archery, the founder is olalomi the Archer, i.e olalomi olofa.

afonja is the name of a man, a general in the Oyo empire, that's where his title "aare ona kakanfo" – the head of the Oyo army came from...

he rebelled against Oyo Empire king, as at then Ilorin was under Oyo empire.
