Description

YEMÍ ELÉBUIBON presents historical and Yorübá account of legendary Obàtálá- the Yòrùbá god of creation and areh-
divinity -using selections from Odù Ifá. Obàtálá is known all over the world and his devotees are numerous. They are in Cuba, USA, Brazil, as well as West Africa, the home base. Ifa is most authoritative of numerous genres of Yòrùbá
oral literature, and to gain an in-depth understanding of Yòrüba culture, a researcher must take Yorùbá culture into consideration, by
studying Odù Ifå (lfá stanza or its poetry). Besides, the book provides a collection of deep hunts of Obàtálá’s praise names. Among the Yòrùbá, oriki provides succinct insight on an individual’s origin; how powerful his ancestors were, how wealthy they were and the noble things they had done. This is what the book provides at the end in its last chapter.
