Okija_juju:


Also from the mouth of Jesus

Matthew 23:17 "You blind fools! Which is greater: the gold, or the temple that makes the gold sacred?"


And...


Luke 11:40 You foolish people! Did not the one who made the outside make the inside also?




Judge Jesus by his words...


Dont ask me, Ask Jesus.. The gods are wise..

weeeeellllllllllllllllllllll JESUS actually went to HELL to dump the sins of the world on Devil's bad head; so he actually fulfilled his promise.

ladionline: Obanikoro is Yoruba word, bini too is Yoruba word. The Aworis were not conquered by bini. The stories we were taught are amalgam. Don't we have Ikorodu in Yoruba? Do we have okorodua? IkorOdu-Oga. Let's stretch it a bit: IKORO-ODU-OGA. KORO in Yoruba always go like this: ATA-KORO-wonu-ADO. The keywords are present in cap. A friend once asked me: "please, what is 'IKO-KORO?'" I have no idea. So he said 'poor you, it is the SMALLEST yam'. WOW "Is it like KOKO?" (cocoyam)? I asked. ''Oh yes,'' he said. Did the Yoruba learn the syllable and application from bini? I dont think so.

sorry to say this but most of what you have being writing in this topic and others are crap.

you are trying to deduce the etymology of yoruba words/names and towns without concrete historiography: ikorodu is from "oko odu" or something like that. it means forest of something( i have forgottten but i will post the various 19th century maps of it. it is an ijebu town. this is not guess work, it is something taught in history.


again, about the fellow that stated that i was wrong on eko, i laugh at you:
in 1629, some bini traders en route modern ghana for trade in spice were attacked thrice by coastal awori people. bini responded by sending a 10 000 strong army to conquer it: at a eastern fortification, they were halted till they usd portugese sailors with their canons to bombard the fort. they were later WELCOMED PACEFULLY to awori to be their ruler(though some nowadays idejo-white cap chiefs disagree with this.

the link with dahomey is false because dahomey(abombey-meaning within the rampart) was just formed then: it never had any military history with bini.

for further enquiry: check wikipedia info on awori and dahomey. though wiki is usually wrong on african history, they got their fact well on this.

ladionline: Although, i do not believe Igbos are aborigins of Ife, what I know is Igbo in my dialect mean quest. Not only that, so much 'Igbo centric' word exist in Yoruba which, if set free will enrich Igbo history, and Africas antiquity. Why do we (Yoruba) call the Igbos OKORO? Where did the Yoruba get Obanikoro from? Right beside me in the bus, I just ask an Igbo dude what OKORO means (we are traveling tru Apongbon) he said "young person" my eyes collect tears. Few weeks ago I came to believe strongly that Obanikoro means "a king at childhood" why because 'omo-ira-koro' (todler) exist in Yoruba. Now the Yoruba eliminate omo ira to have Obanikoro. They ovewrite it

obanikoro is not a yoruba name; it is a bini name. obanikoro and some chiefs were sent by the oba of bini to counsel and guide prince ado after the conquest of awori. the binis later renamed the place eko: meaning war camp.

Culture / Re: Top 10 Most Spoken Languages In All Of Africa by olumidaie(m): 12:23pm On Nov 23, 2013
Fulaman198:

In every west African country, fulfulde/pular is widespread with about 10 million speakers found in Northeast Nigeria. Adamawa, Gombe, Jos, etc has a lot of Fulani people.

do you mean PEOPLE? The total number of Fulani range from 22-24 million, of which 12 million( including those taged with Hausa) are in Nigeria: making them the fourth lagest ethnic group in Nigeria after WA-ZO-BIA.

Most of the Fulani in Hausaland and Sokoto speak Hausa; while those in Gombe and Adamawa speak Fulani( yet, they still large speaking Hausa people there). Mind you it's not only Fula that are in Gombe and Adamawa. Gombe has 70 ethnic groups; and Adamawa has dozens of ethnic groups.

So your claim on 10 million fulfude speaker is false. Both In Nigeria and the whole of W. Africa.

Culture / Re: What Did Yoruba Men Wear Before The Agbada? by olumidaie(m): 10:25am On Nov 17, 2013
About the Agbada, I'm not sure if it's Yoruba or Sahelian( likely); but it did not originate in Hausa nor Fula; though, dandogo was borrowed from the Hausa. Aso-Oke and Adire and one wonen material this "shines" were Yoruba clothing. These are the following Yoruba clothing:

TOP:
buba( short tunic: both long and short sleeve).
"ghana-styles" body wrapper(like in the statue of Oduduwa.
Beaded vest for royalty.
e.t.c

BELOW:
sokoto
kembe
One form of 3/4 trouser that the body(lap side) is big/look like skirt with two small projection for the for the legs.


For more information picture google "oyo horsemen". You will see a 15/16th century horseman figure with short sleeves and kembe trouser.

Also check Leo Forbenius book on Ife. Someone posted the pictures on Yoruba clothing on Nairaland.

Islam for Muslims / Re: Ojude Oba, Nigeria's Post-eid Heritage Festival by olumidaie(m): 4:32pm On Oct 25, 2013
RoyPCain: are you an ijebu ode blood, vedaxcool? i am and the last ojude oba i attanded was in the time of balogun alatishe. i missed this event.

i have few disagreements with its process and protocol as i get to understand islam more than the past; they should be kinder to the horses and there is no reason to curtsey the king by bowing, worse, prostrating. the king should know and should disallow such curtsey because all curtsey and reverence including standing and waiting are to God. the awujale should arrive in his seat much earlier without letting people wait for him.

i think the whole idea for the celebration of ojude oba is based on what the messenger [sa] permitted of entertainment by the ethiopians after the id.

ijebu ode is being rivaled by ijebu igbo now.

you got it wrong there. The festival is not an "Islamic" festival; but an Islamic cum Traditional festival(note: when I say Traditional, I do not mean orisha and the rest.lol).

It is to mark the AWUJALE's "benevolence" to the spread and growth of Islam in Ijebuland. It is actually to honour the Awujale, not really God(Allah). So the coutesy accorded to the Awujale it necessary. Similar to the Durban festival in Northern Nigeria where the Emirs are honoured.

It is a major Ijebu festival( if not largest) which Ijebus from all stalk: mislims or christians; old or young; countrymen or diasporan; e.t.c.... The Awujale might not necessarily be Muslim(I doubt if the Awujale of that time was muslim). He could be christian or anything else.

Anyway have fun while the Ojude festival lastsmileysmileysmileysmileysmileysmileysmileysmileysmileysmileysmileysmileysmileysmileysmileysmileysmileysmileysmileysmileysmileysmileysmileysmiley

Please, I need you people's advice. What are the pros and cons for staying at Tanke?

What of the pros and cons for staying in other places like Oke-Oran or something like that?

What I mean by pros and cons are
distance and nearness to school
cost
condusiveness
etc......

I heard that they are hostels around the school gate; do any of you have info on that?
Culture / Re: Some Historical Terms In Yoruba. by olumidaie(m): 8:20am On Oct 25, 2013
Anago('Nago) is a Yoruba sub-ethmic group. They inhabit the eastern coast of Benin Republic. The capital is Ajasse(or Ajasse-Ile): it is popularly called PORT-NOVO. It is east of Benin Rep's economic capital, Cotonou. It serves as the political and administrative capital of the country.

North of Anago, are the Yoruba sub-groups of Ohori and Ketu. West is the Fon(Dahomey) ethnic group and Popo-Yoriba. To it's eastern boarder with Nigeria are the other Yoruba sub-group of Eko( Awori and Egun) and Egbado( Egba-West).

It's capital is also peopled by the Ewe and Aja ethnic groups. They refer to Port-Novo as Hogbonou. Some historic facts suggest that the Ewe or Aja might have been the first settler in that area; before some Yoruba people came to domicile there.

Anago is also a name the Yoruba people were called by the white men. The Anago were among the first Yoruba groups to have contact with the white men. By the time more Yorubas were sold in slavery, they werer collectively, yet ignorantly called Anago because of their shared anscentry, language, dessing and culture with Anago.



Ok, everybody, come post more info on the Nagot clan.

This was part of my dissertation.
Although, I did not broaden up on it since it would mean deviating from the subject matter.
From the little knowledge I have - the people who took Ife captive were Ugbo, not 'Igbo' - but it has gradually become corrupted to Igbo. When Moremi returned to Ife with plan on how to defeat them which was implemented, some of them were captured and detained in Ife but the descendant were allowed to settle and are called 'Oluyare' and a chief called Obawinrin.

When next I go home, I'd probably create time to visit the compound to conduct an interview.

I would love to read more on this people if you have information on them.

Maybe when next I go home I visit the family compound to see what information I can find.

your analysis is flawed; though compelling and revealing. I still insist that the Ugbo-Igbo link is false. The Igbo(aborigines) never refered themselves as Igbo. Just like Oyinbos. The bulk of them fled or became Yorubanised.
