This is very dumb, typical of a yoruba..
I guess Iya Babatunde will mean, Mother of father has come?
Dullard!

“Babatunde” is a personal name, “oba” is not.

Who on this forum doesn't know you are a big idiot who thinks himself smart and intelligent?
Just as ogun, oya, yeepa, iyooba, Ada and other words your people share with Yoruba have different meanings as with their Yoruba meaning and original meaning, this one too must have a different meaning.

Omonoba, a child that shines.. what piece of nonsense! Why must your king be referred to as a child?
It could also mean a child that is red na. Your concoctions are becoming obsolete and redundantly boring


A child that shines
A child that is red
it is shining

Thank you bro, sometimes when I think about this Bini people ehh I with just smile maybe he should tell us why they referred"OMO "as a child is omo a Bini language ? Am very sure they have another word in Bini language for child

Their own Bini word for “child” is “oʋi”.

—————
NB: Their consonant “ʋ” is a voiced bilabial fricative.

It is usually transcribed as “vb”, such that “oʋi” (i.e. child) is written as “ovbi”.

This ones’ brain actually came as fairly used, cheesy but I will still be nice enough to offer you free education sha! Hehe cheesy grin
(1a) Rui de Sequeira visited the Aworis’ settlement in 1472 and he documented the received name of their island (and its immediate lagoon outlet to the Atlantic) as the Lake of EkoAromi (translated) — that is, “Lago de Curamo”

(1b) Duarte Pacheco Periero followed suit in 1508 to the same settlement; and to IjebuOde as well, writing about the great city, its ruler, its moat, etc.

(1c) In fact, according to Benin written accounts, the first EuroPean visitor to Benin (in the 1480s), Joao Afonso d’Aviero, was first in Yorubaland (Itsekiri) before messengers came from the Benin king, begging that he should please visit Benin too.

(2) Oduduwa ruled Ife under the following titles among several others:

(a) ‘Oghone’ (which is later spelt/articulated as ‘Owoni’, and now spelt/articulated as ‘Ooni’).

The Binis of old articulate this title of the kings of Ife as ‘Oghene’. ~ See your Oba Erediauwa’s “The Benin-Ife Connection” for an example.

[By the way Erediauwa was a terrible liar, but he was conscious enough of the need to admit this particular fact].

(b) ‘Olofin’ (of which ‘Alaafin’ of the Oyos, and ‘Alaofin’ of the Kogi-Yorubas are dialectal variations).

(c) ‘Adimula’ — amongst many other titles.

That’s the education you’ve been requesting. I didn’t oblige because it is irrelevant to the actual classes I was taking you on at the moment.

(3) (a) The Benin custom of Yoruba tribal marks was received by M. Crowder as pertaining to coronation.

You must therefore first present the Benin bronzes which depict a time of an oba’s coronation.

(b) Moreover, the Benin custom of Yoruba tribal mark was received by M. Crowder as a non-permanent one drawn by chalk.

You must therefore first argue for the linguistic and logical equivalence of chalk and razor.

I finally triggered something in you, keep the lies coming, I will be looking out for when Oduduwa and Oranmiyan finally came into your story as historical persons.

You have given us citations from the 1400s and 1500s, no Oduduwa, Oranmiyan and Ife mentioned yet. Maybe you should try 1600s, 1700s and 1800s. Please tell us when Oduduwa as a historical person came into Yoruba history, this shouldn't be too difficult.

It's easy to tell fairytales but very difficult to defend them with evidence.

Oghene metamorphosed into Oduduwa ?? ?? What!?? Did you type this while undergoing a brain surgery??

Binis’ skulls are indeed the most mysterious. No truth can ever pass through. cheesy

first you told us Ogane that was mentioned in Benin history was Ife,
Ogane is IFe?? When?? Where?? LMAO! Desperado on the lose. grin

May God eventually heal you even if in old age. grin

now you are telling us that Benin Oghene was Oduduwa,
First of all, Oghene is not a personal name of Oduduwa, neither was it unique or restricted to Oduduwa.

Rather, it was a title of anyone who assumed the rulership of Ife.

Secondly, no it is NOT I who am informing you on that. Rather, it is your fathers & mothers who insisted to the Europeans that the word ‘Oghene’ is their own Bini way of articulating this title of the rulers of Ife.

yoruba also have to rely on Benin to date Oduduwa to the 1100s. Without Benin history your Oduduwa, Oranmiyan and Ife fallacy is dead on arrival.
Relies on Benin to date Oduduwa to the circa 1000s?? LMAO!

Wait! You mean the EuRoPeAns visited Benin in circa 1000CE?? Lol!

Or you mean that the EUrOpEaNs documented even one word about a specific Benin king in 400 years?? LMAO!

Prepare for the shock:
Of Ife and Benin, only Ife’s chronology of kings aligns best with the authoritative average 13-year length of reign for West African kingdoms vis-a-vis the year in which their respective first kings are thought to have began to reign.

Listen laughing stock:

First of all, LITERALLY no one (historians or Yoruba laypersons) rely on Benin fabrications for Oduduwa’s identity.

Historians have, time and time again, debunked the Benin joke that he was a bEniN pRiNcE. You wish that was historically true.

Secondly, which of the following two should actually make you truly sad as per the absence of eyewitness writing?? Use your brain and be honest.

(a) Eware-1, et al. whom the EUrOpEaNs are supposed to have met and interacted with in Benin in the 1400s.

Yet there is not one single European writing to prove that Ewuare-1, et al. truly existed — until Ewuare-1, et al. were transformed into humans in the 1900s.

OR

(b) Oduduwa, Oranmiyan, et al. who flourished in c. 1000s — that is, some four centuries prior to when the first EUrOpEaNs would step foot into W/Africa to write down a word.

—————
In sum, @Samuk the laughing stock wants to see EUrOpEaN writings (on Oduduwa, Oranmiyan, et al.) from a period when EUrOpEaNs had not yet visited.

Yet he is, in the same breath, indifferent & unmoved by the absence of EUrOpEaN writings (on Ewuare-2, and several others) from a period when EUrOpEaNs were actually present. cheesy

The fact that you are from Bini should not stop you from using your brain.

So Oduduwa and Oranmiyan flourished in c. 1000s - four centuries prior to the first visit of Europeans and yet there is nothing in European writings for almost 500 years that shows or even suggested that the names Oduduwa and Oranmiyan were mentioned to them save for latterday manipulation, twisting and misrepresentation of ancient names in Benin history to back up the Oduduwa and Oranmiyan fairytales.

European were practically resident in Benin from the 1600s, why are there no accounts of Benin/Ife interactions during these periods.

Oduduwa and Oranmiyan were not mentioned for 500 years only for us to be told that he flourished 1000 years earlier? On which historical archives did you dig up this bull...$t from. Oh I forgot the muslims led by the Sultan of Sokoto, Sultan Bello told you so in late 1890s.

Incoherent jibber-jabber as typical. Anyways your perceived insinuations is debunked above. Scroll up a bit.

European were practically resident in Benin from the 1600s, why are there no accounts of Benin/Ife interactions during these periods.
(1) For about the same reasons as why there was zero writings on Benin-Onitsha interaction for example.

(2) For a more sensible reason than why there was zero writing to prove that the following names belong to human beings at all — let alone human beings who are later claimed (in modern Benin stories) to have ruled Benin kingdom:

Ewuare-1, Olua, Ozolua, Esigie, Orhogbua, Ehengbuda, Ohuan, Ohenzae, Akenkpaye, Akengbedo, Ore-Oghene, Ewuakpe, Ozuere, Akenzua-1, Eresoyen, Akengbuda, Obanosa, Ogbebo, and Osemwende.

To make matters worse, the same EUrOpEaNs (who love to write) are noted in the modern Benin stories to have actually met and interacted with these supposed humans-cum-kings. Yet, not a single word was written with regards to any specific one of these supposed kings of Benin.

(3) Having said that, there are early Portuguese notes from the 1500s which describe Benin kings as more or less a slave to a great overlord residing in the “east”.

Historians have now reached the conclusion that the wording “east” in these Portuguese writings refers to the religious (rather than literal) epithet of this overlord’s home country, viz. “whence comes the dawn” — IFE, ibi ojumo tii mo wa.

Historians have also reached the consensus now that this overlord himself is none other than the Ooni of Ife in present-day Nigeria.

In case you disagree with historians, I am curious to hear whom you personally think this overlord (to whom your kings are slaves) really is.

Oduduwa and Oranmiyan were not mentioned for 500 years only for us to be told that he flourished 1000 years earlier?
Eweka-1 down to Ewuare-1 down to Osemwende were not mentioned for 500 years, only for us to be told by Binis that Eweka-1 flourished about 1000 years ago.

Sounds consistent? I think yes. Use your brain today.

On which historical archives did you dig up this bull...$t from.
Replace “you” with “samuk the laughing stock” to get the full gist. cheesy

Oh I forgot the muslims led by the Sultan of Sokoto, Sultan Bello told you so in late 1890s. Please keep the lies coming.
What!? cheesy

Anyways, to keep my free education program to Bini dullards going:

Bishop Adjai Crowther was NOT a Muslim, neither was J. O. George, neither was Pa Moses Lijadu, neither was Rev. S. Johnson, et al., nor did Sultan Bello live beyond 1837 (let alone up to the 1890s).

Your remark is at best meaningless, incoherent, ridiculous, and absurd. cheesy

We have two words for some things in benin

Unlike the yorubas that have one word for a thing with different spellings


Coconut = evin new( benin)
Coconut = kokodia (old benin)

Ass= onisan
Ass ikebe

Child= omo
Owokan (small child, youngest child)

You must therefore first present the Benin bronzes which depict a time of an oba’s coronation.

(b) Moreover, the Benin custom of Yoruba tribal mark was received by M. Crowder as a non-permanent one drawn by chalk.

You must therefore first argue for the linguistic and metaphysical equivalence of chalk and razor.

Firstly, you said foreigners visited the aworis in 1472. Where is the documented proof to back up your claims? You haven't made any point until you back it up with proof. The itsekiris are not on Yoruba land, they migrated to the edoid land, so get that straight. Foreigners met the itsekiris on edoid land, besides the itsekiris are a mixture of different tribes, (Yoruba, Benin and igala). The Yorubas alone have no claim on Itsekiri even though there forefathers migrated from the south west after mingling with Benin soldiers known as the aonis. If you don't know this part of history. I can easily educate you.

Secondly, how does "oghone" or "owoni" relate to Ooni? They don't even sound alike. Fabricators are fully active here kiss. The only thing you Yorubas know how to do is twist and fabricate the meanings of names.

Oghene was not gotten from Oghone or whatever name you call it. The Oghene the Benins are familiar with was located around Niger benue confluence and not in ile-Ife. The Obas of Benin have never regarded any Ooni of ile-Ife as the "Oghene".. so get that straight. It is quite obvious because the whole world can see the Oba of Benin has no such respect for the Ooni of Ife talk less of classifying him as the "oghene". It's quite laughable. In his inauguration speech, the Oba of Benin told your so called Oghene (ooni) right to his face that Ekalederan also known as Oduduwa was the son of ogiso owodo. So this matter is settled as far as Benins are concerned kiss

This article regarding chalk being used to draw a tribal mark on the oba face, what date was it published? Revionist at work, if it was not published before 1897, just forget it. It's not worth debating. You said the publisher got such claims from crowder, where is this crowder from, if he is British I'm sure you are aware that the brits would do anything to take power away from the Benin kingdoms and hand it over to their neighbours.

As you can see, I replied you quite plainly without adding abuses or rude remarks. Learn to do this as well because people will take you more serious when you start presenting your claims in a descent manner. Cheers!

E gba mi o, this meatball is equating the angel of the Abrahamic religion to the angel of the Benin/African cosmology. Which of the Benin/Edo traditional religions affirms the existence of angels in Bible and Qur'an.

You're daft and you refused to admit it. Celestial angel ko, Catholic angel ni.
Giving an accurate meaning to the word oba has always been a big deal for all you.
There were times you all said oba means king. When you were dragged, you said it's equivalent to "it is shining". You later made a U-turn to say it means "it's red". Now, it is celestial shinning/angel. What meaning will you give to it tomorrow? You all are bunch of jokers.

Oba connotes king and it is purely a Yoruba word. This is how the word is derived
o ba - "O"is a second person pronoun while "ba" is a verb which connotes perches, dominates, oversees, or rules. so the word oba means he who perches over/dominate/rules/has authority over something.

Ask another Yoruba person he will give the same meaning.

With time, your lots will come around to tell us "ogun", "sango", "olokun", "ogboni" in Edo language have different meanings with the ones in Yoruba language.

celestial shining.. What can be more ludicrous!


Oga stop crying, you sound childish. Oba in Benin means two things and it's clearly stated in its lexicon. It either means "shinning light" or "red".. most people ask for more details about the "shinning light" and that is why I broke it down and said it can also be ascribed as "celestial or devine". It's left for you to understand that simple definition or you can keep on ranting on such inconsequential details. If angels in Yoruba land have dark dimmed light around them that's your own problem. Other religions and traditions depicts them as otherwise. So get a grip of yourself and move on with life kiss.

I told you earlier that Edoid dialect is different from yoruboid dialect. The sooner you let this sink in the better for you mate. The word "Oba" has a different meaning for both ethnic groups.

We are now finally getting closer to the truth. Which of the names you mentioned above wrote their history of Oduduwa being an actual person earlier than 1800s. Which of their narrative of Oduduwa fairytales is earlier than 1800s.

So far we have gone through 1400s, 1500s, 1600, 1700 without Oduduwa and Oranmiyan being mentioned in either Benin or Yoruba history. We are now in the 1800s when the fairytale was actually fabricated.

You have just proved my point unless you can show us evidence of Oduduwa and Oranmiyan being mentioned in any historical context of being actual human beings other than gods earlier than 1800s.

Show us anything in the 1799 and earlier, why is this so difficult for you to do. You just told us Oranmiyan and Oduduwa flourished a 1000 years earlier and despite the fact that 500 years of the first 800 years was documented, you still can't show us concrete evidence.

I wonder what your Igbo supporters will think about all these your lies.

Stay focused on the topic, we are not discussing Benin/Onitsha relationship or Obas of Benin but when Oduduwa story was created.

Nice one Sam... Benin Oghene is completely different from the Yoruba Ooni. What the yorubas have done is take parts of the Benin history and claimed it as theirs. It shows how desperate they are to be part of Benin kingdoms history. kiss

Yoruba eyewitness written history began proper in 1826. This was the year the Alaafin received his first European visitor who started documenting the hinterland of Yoruba. Benin eyewitness documentation was already 400 years old by this time. To catch up with the Benins they came up with the Benin/Ife connection.

They went through Benin historical archives and started distorting it by misrepresenting names that have nothing to with Ife and Oduduwa as being Ife and Oduduwa.

Whenever you are debating them on Oduduwa they keep going into their distorted Benin historical archives to support their lies.

Show us Oduduwa and Oranmiyan in Yorubas history before 1800s, they cannot provide us any evidence of Yoruba history of Oduduwa before the 1800.

In sum, @Samuk the laughing stock wants to see EUrOpEaN writings (on Oduduwa, Oranmiyan, et al.) from a period when EUrOpEaNs had not yet visited. cheesy

This is laughable.. you just stated not long ago that the Europeans visited the awories and ijebus in 1472 and 1500's. The story of oranmiyan would have easily been recorded by the Europeans if they truly visited yorubaland in this era. You keep on shooting yourself on the foot. Oranmiyan left the Benin shores around 1170 and was ruling oyo in 1200AD. So you can see it's around the same time line as your so called Europeans visited the awories kiss. If the Europeans didn't write down the ancestorial history of the "so called" yorubas at that time, please tell us what would have been more important for them to write about ? This is becoming really laughable.

Also don't forget that Benin who was supposed to be related to the Yoruba through Oduduwa was visited repeatedly since 1400s and by 1600s the catholic church had a permanent mission with priests in Benin city who documented all aspects of Benin lives yet Oduduwa and Oranmiyan were never mentioned.

If she is arguing that Yoruba history wasn't sufficiently documented, what about Benin history?

There in no mention of Oduduwa and Oranmiyan in either Benin or Yoruba history as being humans that actually lived before 1800s.

The best you can get before the 1800s is Oduduwa and Oranmiyan being legends and unsubstantiated myths.

Benin history is very important to every tribes in southern Nigeria that is why Yoruba is trying to steal it by all means. Benin is the historical calendar by which other tribes dates their history.

If Oduduwa and Oranmiyan existed beyond myths and legends, only the Benin and Oba of Benin have the authentic history. If Yoruba want to share from our glorious past, they are welcome but unacceptable for them to try to steal it.
Re: Oba Of Benin Announces Date For Outdoor Ceremony Of Odudua Rites by samuk: 9:26am On May 09
This is what Yoruba historical greats recorded about the Ooni in late 1800s and early 1900s.

in his book The History of the Yorubas Samuel Johnson wrote that the Ooni of Ife was a descendant of a mere shrine keeper, rather than real royalty (a myth which had actually been prevalent in other parts of Yorubaland even before Johnson wrote his book.

The historian Robin Law cites other instances of this myth about the Ooni of Ife being some kind of shrine keeper or non-royalty existing in other parts of Yorubaland dating from before and after Johnson's book was published).

The Ooni was nothing but a chief priest or babalawo before his political elevation.

We are now finally getting closer to the truth. Which of the names you mentioned above wrote their history of Oduduwa being an actual person earlier than 1800s. Which of their narrative of Oduduwa fairytales is earlier than 1800s.

So far we have gone through 1400s, 1500s, 1600, 1700 without Oduduwa and Oranmiyan being mentioned in either Benin or Yoruba history. We are now in the 1800s when the fairytale was actually fabricated.

You have just proved my point unless you can show us evidence of Oduduwa and Oranmiyan being mentioned in any historical context of being actual human beings other than gods earlier than 1800s.

Show us anything in the 1799 and earlier, why is this so difficult for you to do. You just told us Oranmiyan and Oduduwa flourished a 1000 years earlier and despite the fact that 500 years of the first 800 years was documented, you still can't show us concrete evidence.

I wonder what your Igbo supporters will think about all these your lies.

Stay focused on the topic, we are not discussing Benin/Onitsha relationship or Obas of Benin but when Oduduwa story was created.

Firstly, you said foreigners visited the aworis in 1472. Where is the documented proof to back up your claims? You haven't made any point until you back it up with proof.
Oh really?? shocked Are you pretending to be dumb or are you truly unaware that Rui de Sequeira visited the Aworis’ settlement and noted the area as “Lago de Curamo”?? Please reply to this particular question.

The itsekiris are not on Yoruba land, they migrated to the edoid land, so get that straight.
Wonderful! So, they migrated there, kicked out the initial occupants, and then took over the land now known as Itsekiri land?? cheesy

Wait! Did Binis originally migrate to their present area, or did their first ancestors grow out from the soil of their present area, or did they drop from the sky into the area?? I’m super curious now because of your dumb comment.

Foreigners met the itsekiris on edoid land, besides the itsekiris are a mixture of different tribes, (Yoruba, Benin and igala). The Yorubas alone have no claim on Itsekiri even though there forefathers migrated from the south west after mingling with Benin soldiers known as the aonis. If you don't know this part of history. I can easily educate you.
First of all, there is no authentic evidence that Bini or Benin was ever called by any names other than Beny (and its different variations), or Ado, or Edo (and its different variations).

Secondly, the Itsekiris insist that they are Yorubas. So, why should I ignore their own testimony of their own selves, and go with what you deludedly wish? Please change my mind. cheesy

Thirdly: So, the fact that Itsekiris hosted other people on their land means that the Itsekiris are no longer Yorubas. Isn’t God wonderful? grin

Secondly, how does "oghone" or "owoni" relate to Ooni? They don't even sound alike. Fabricators are fully active here kiss. The only thing you Yorubas know how to do is twist and fabricate the meanings of names.
Go read up on the linguistic term called “fricative” before I may have a discussion with you on this.

I doubt that you will because the word “read” always scares the soul out of most Binis.

But if you will read it up by some miracle, then below is one living example of a “fricative,” and its evolution in modern Yoruba language:

The Yoruba city of “Ọ̀wọ̀” is sometimes, even till date, still remembered, written, and pronounced as “Ọ̀ghọ̀” which is its more ancient articulation.

Having said that, I have once stumbled upon an historical material written in the 1800s, which (while discussing IFE) referred in passing to its king by the title Ọwọ̀ni* rather than the present evolved form “Ọọ̀ni” by which the same king is referred to throughout the same material.

* This is clearly an intermediate form which has evolved from the more archaic and fricativized form, viz. “Ọghọ̀nẹ”.

••• --> Ọghọ̀nẹ --> Ọwọ̀ni --> Ọọ̀ni --> •••


Oghene was not gotten from Oghone or whatever name you call it. The Oghene the Benins are familiar with was located around Niger benue confluence and not in ile-Ife. The Obas of Benin have never regarded any Ooni of ile-Ife as the "Oghene".. so get that straight.
From my comment above, it is as clear as day that there is zero need to go out of Yoruba sources (to Benin sources) in order to arrive at the more archaic articulation of the word “Ooni”.

Having said that, my attached screenshots below only proves that the greatest known liar that ever sat on the Benin throne (i.e. Omon’Oba Erediauwa) could not help but to agree with the Yorubas on this. He thus admitted that the “Oghene” in Benin usage refers to the Ooni of Ile-Ife, not in the Niger-Benue confluence.

It is quite obvious because the whole world can see the Oba of Benin has no such respect for the Ooni of Ife talk less of classifying him as the "oghene". It's quite laughable.
See attached screenshots again.

In his inauguration speech, the Oba of Benin told your so called Oghene (ooni) right to his face that Ekalederan also known as Oduduwa was the son of ogiso owodo. So this matter is settled as far as Benins are concerned kiss
And the Ooni rushed to the stage, snatched his mic from him, disrupted the party, and called him out as a liar. Didn’t he? /s

Wasn’t that how the Ooni reacted when your Oba was on the inherited (from his own father) lying spree? cheesy

Well, your Oba subsequently visited the Ooni at his palace in Ife for the usual homage. Guess what went down.

Your Oba again narrated the Oranmiyan/Oduduwa story (while he sat almost next to the Ooni). As is to be expected, he dared not open his mouth to narrate the iZoDuWa fabrication.

This time, he skillfully fled from that falsehood when he got to that point in the course of his narration at the Ooni’s palace.

This article regarding chalk being used to draw a tribal mark on the oba face, what date was it published? Revionist at work, if it was not published before 1897, just forget it. It's not worth debating. You said the publisher got such claims from crowder, where is this crowder from, if he is British I'm sure you are aware that the brits would do anything to take power away from the Benin kingdoms and hand it over to their neighbours.
Can we see the proof of how the relevant human beings (i.e. the historians) regarded this particular received account as the product of a fraudulent revision?? Thank you.

As you can see, I replied you quite plainly without adding abuses or rude remarks. Learn to do this as well because people will take you more serious when you start presenting your claims in a descent manner. Cheers!
In case you perceive anything as insult (if at all there is any), you may please kindly ignore it and focus your energy on addressing my refutation of your debunked heap of dog shit.

It is well known that there was a pregnant woman who was meant to be sacrificed to the Yoruba gods for roaming the streets during a particular festival. Her life was spared because she was pregnant and she was told to dedicate her unborn child to serve the yoruba gods. She eventually gave birth and dedicated her child to serve the Yoruba gods. This child later became the chief priest that worked under oduduwa. His job was to fetch herbs and look after the shrine when oduduwa was busy doing other things. This child was named "Ooni". This was the first time the name "Ooni" was used on Yoruba land... But just take a look at these disgraceful fabricators on nairaland claiming that Ooni was derived from Oghone, presumed to be the same person as Oghene. Just imagine the concoction of fables put together by the Yoruba revionists. This is a shame. Lol

Oga stop crying, you sound childish. Oba in Benin means two things and it's clearly stated in its lexicon. It either means "shinning light" or "red".. most people ask for more details about the "shinning light" and that is why I broke it down and said it can also be ascribed as "celestial or devine". It's left for you to understand that simple definition or you can keep on ranting on such inconsequential details. If angels in Yoruba land have dark dimmed light around them that's your own problem. Other religions and traditions depicts them as otherwise. So get a grip of yourself and move on with life kiss.

I told you earlier that Edoid dialect is different from yoruboid dialect. The sooner you let this sink in the better for you mate. The word "Oba" has a different meaning for both ethnic groups.

You are slow.. That's an indisputable fact. What Benin/Edo cosmology explains, supports or or affirms the existence of angels. What tells you there is ever one celestial angel that shines? Do you grab how stupid you sound?

This is not a case of dialectical variations, it is clear case of borrowed words (Which now you intend to steal with your useless illogical "it is red/it is shining/celestial angel" narratives).

When you are done carving absurd meanings for the word oba to alienate it from its original source and meaning, try and do same for other words like Iyaoba, ogun, olokun, yeepa, sango, omo, iya and other words you attained through the influence of oranmiyan and Ife. Celestial shinning... Your stupidity is first grade.
