…Festival holds Friday, Saturday
One of the leading lights in the worship and veneration of the Olokun deity, Yeye Abeke Olokun who is also the Founder and President of Abeke Olokun Divine Temple located at Ololade Street Elijah Bus stop Badagry Lagos state is of the opinion that a return to both our cultural and religious beliefs will further secure abundance for the country.
In a telephone interview with News Hub Mag! yesterday the traditionalist stressed that “we went astray from our God-ordained culture and religion and that has greatly affected us in Africa, especially in Nigeria.
“We were created into this part of the world for a reason and before we came here our path had already been laid. Our job is to seek that path and walk in it. Unfortunately, the glamour of foreign religions and the desire to belong made us stray from the path we had chosen to tread before coming to the world.”
According to her, the need to seek out our predestined path in life and religiously follow it is one of the reasons why her temple is organizing her first Olokun festival coming up this weekend.
“I was astray for many years but finally I have found my true calling in life and that is why as we shall be gathering to venerate the great Olokun Semiaje this coming Friday and Saturday we shall also be creating opportunities for those eager to also find their place in life,” she said.
Speaking further on her upcoming festival which s expected to have adherents from Togo, Ghana and other African countries in attendance, Yeye Abeke stated that the Aje Olokun appreciation will hold on Friday, November 25, 2022, between the hours of 9 am and 10 am while that of Ifa will start from 4 pm to 7 pm.
On Saturday, November 26, 2022, there will be appeasement of Ajagunmale from 10 am to 12 pm while reception for guests will start from 2 pm to 5 pm at Sultan Beach Badagry, Lagos.
