From Shakirudeen Bankole, Osogbo
INTERNATIONAL participants at the just-concluded Osun Osogbo Cultural Festival, have described the event as “the most beautiful, original, and spiritually rewarding” in the world.
The Awise of Brazil,who simply identified himself as Ifamuyiwa, said he was so excited for the experience, boasting that his 12 unbroken years of attendance at the annual event has been most spiritually rewarding for him.
Expressing his happiness and excitement, Ifamuyiwa added that “Yeye Osun has been magnanimous to me, giving me life, health, and prosperity”.
He admonished individuals who are currently struggling to find their footings in life to come to Osun for refuge and meaning.
He said some of the rewards for participating in the annual spiritual festival is the unprecedented acceptance of prayers, unlocking of opportunities of greatness, sound health, fruitfulness, wealth and long life.
“Isese la’gba (tradition is the ultimate). The traditional Religion can never go wrong. You can come and try it.
“Osun Festival is so beautiful. This is my 10 years of unbroken consecutive attendance. I carry this god and the festival with prestige and honor in my country in Brazil. And I have used the name and power of the Osun Goddess to heal and prophesy meanings into many lives. I bet Nigeria and Africa should take this more seriously,” he added.
Ifamuyiwa said his wife, who could not attend because of divination and consultation exigencies, has been his partner in the journey back at home in Ontero-Montero.
