  1. traditional African poem………..
    resonating words of power
    chanting incantation
    primordial saviour of souls
    he’s conductor of destiny
    shaping, moulding
    this man is no ordinary man,
    a reflection of eternal light
    a mystical metaphysician in his own right………..

    He is to traditional African faith.
    What Imam is to the mosque,
    respectively.
    Untying the knot,
    Of man‘s creation.

    *
    He is ONISEGUN

    Toiling beneath the light of the moon.
    Resonating words of power,
    With leaves, bone and root in hand.
    Chanting incantation tunes.

    *
    He is BABALAWO

    Craftsman of spoken words, WISDOM.
    Primordial savior of souls…
    Through third dimension ODU Motifs
    IFA’S…Ancient celestial portal.

    *
    He is conductor of DESTINY.

    Shaping.
    Molding.
    Wounded character,
    Healed.

    *
    He is HUNTER

    Ijala cantor …
    The incorporeal beast salutator
    Respecter…..Of Iku’s chosen feast.

    *
    This MAN.
    Is No Ordinary Man.
    He is the reflection,
    Of Ela’s beacon of Eternal Light.
    Embracing pure altruisms,
    Illuminating eternal principles
    The mystical metaphysician,
    In his own rite.
