KOROFO & OLODUMARE

KOROFO AWO AJA ILE…..THIS IS FOUND IN YORUBA TRADITIONAL RELIGION. TO UNDERSTAND THIS YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND A BIT ABOUT THE IFA ORACLE.

KOROFO AWO AJA ILE MEANS KOROFO THE CULT OF THE UNDERGROUND. THIS IS A CULT OF IFA PRIESTS AND THEIR JOB IS TO CONSULT IFA.

IFA IS THE ORACLE…..KOROFO CONSULTED IFA ORACLE BECAUSE YORUBA PEOPLE IN ANTIQUTY WANTED TO KNOW IF GOD (OLODUMARE) COULD DIE. IFA REPLIED THAT GOD IS NOT A MAN AND SO CANNOT DIE

KOROFO AWO AJA ILE IS A GROUP OF IFA PRIESTS WHO CONSULTED THE IFA ORACLE ABOUT THE LIFE SPAN OF OLODUMARE. IFA TOLD KOROFO THAT OLODUMARE WHO IS GOD CAN NEVER DIE AND HAS NO LIFESPAN.

IN REALITY KOROFO AWO AJA ILE IN THE BLACK AXE-MOVEMENT ARE THE IFA PRIESTS WHO ARE IN REGULAR FELLOWSHIP WITH THE CHIEF-PRIESTS NBM.

THE LAST REAL CHIEF-PRIESTS WERE  BANDA KAMUZU IN 1979/80  AND FAXI WAXI IN 80/81. WHEN A CHIEF PRIEST SPEAKS THERE SHOULD BE POWER BECAUSE HE SPEAKS WITH AUTHOURITY.

OLODUMARE IS THE NAME FOR GOD AMONG THE YORUBAS AND AXEMEN IN 1977 NEVER PRAYED TO KOROFO BUT TO GOD. SINCE THE 1977 AXE-MEN WERE IN BENIN  MOST OF THE REFERENCES WERE FROM BENIN CULTURE AND TRADITIONS. THE PRAYERS ALWAYS ENDED WITH “OBA A TOPE EEE” WITH A RESOUNDING “ISEH” FROM ALL GATHERED, FOLLOWED BY BLACK RUM AR TOP E EHH; ALSO FOLLOWED BY A RESOUNDING “ISEH”. OBA A TOPE EEH SIMPLY MEANS MAY THE KING LIVE LONG OR LONG LIVE THE KING.

BLACK RUM WAS WHAT KOKOMA USED TO BE CALLED.

BLACK AXE WAS ALSO ABOUT AFRICAN TRADITIONAL RELIGION SO THIS SHOULD NOT SURPRISE YOU. KURA AND THE HOLY PAGAN WERE IFA PRIESTS AND THEY RECRUITED MORE INCLUDING YAKATA MOHAMMED. TILL TODAY KURA AND THE HOLY PAGAN ARE STILL IFA PRIESTS.

IN 1977 THE HOLY PAGAN AND KURA REPRODUCED THE ORIGINAL INCANTATION, REMOVED THE WORD OLODUMARE AND REPLACED IT WITH BLACK-AXE. SO THE INCANTATION NOW READ, “KOROFO THE CULT OF THE UNDERGROUND HAS DECLARED THAT THE DEATH OF THE BLACK-AXE WOULD NEVER BE HEARD OFF”.

THE CULT OF THE UNDERGROUND IS NOW SPIRITUAL AS THOSE IFA PRIESTS ARE LONG DEAD, BUT THE BLACK-AXE CHIEF PRIEST HAS HIS OWN WAY OF COMMUNICATING WITH THEM. DO NOT FORGET IN YORUBA MYTHOLOGY THIS ALL HAPPENED AT THE BEGINNING OF THE WORLD. YOU NEED TO GET THE BOOK “GOD IN YORUBA BELIEF” BY IDOWU TO UNDERSTAND ALL THIS.
