AS GANI ADAMS BECOMES AN ANCESTOR

My Ten Kobo

On Sunday, October 15, 2017, Iku Baba Yeye, Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Atanda Adeyemi II, The Aalafin of Oyo, proclaimed Otunba Gani Abiodun Adams, Ige Adubi oolosa molete, National Coordinator, Oodua People’s Congress, Chief Promoter, Olokun Festival Foundation, Founder, Oodua Progressive Union and Chairman, Oodua Voice Radio and Magazine, as the 15th Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland.

By this singular honour, Gani Adams, who already holds 47 traditional chieftaincy titles from three countries, becomes only the 15th person, IN HiSTORY, to hold the Aare title, and the first from Akoko.

He thus became an ancestor, which is the highest honour a mortal can aspire to, without becoming a deity.

Congratulations, my brother. Those ordained by the gods, the Aalafin and the Oyomesi, to install an Aare, have spoken. Any other opinion is irrelevant.

Your commitment to the Yoruba cause, your lifelong pursuit for the propagation of Yoruba values and ethos, and your unflinching loyalty to our ancestry, will ensure that you reign as the Aare for a very long long time.

Emi mo so be, Aase gun!

Abiodun Ige, Ige Adubi, oolosa molete,

Omo akole etu kole ibon, Omo Arigidi-Akoko oro ghagna sewa.
Omo akara dindin gbomo pon loja Arigidi-Akoko.

Omo Iku Adimula, Omo eniki iba ria ki bariaria kiikii.
Aworin ayase Aya ooga, Omo a se gbasegbase so ibirin oyin.
Omo Aroghon bi eni nio Oje, Omo Aya ninu ota sore.

Omo ojiwajiwa ileke, o tori ileke do oluku Oyo.
Omo ilu aisowo laipate, mo mugba bowo lona ayase.
Omo obobirin sun dupe ana, Omo asisoro bu ni ori ogede.

Omo alahere owo, Omo asakoko rigborigbo.
Omo asoro loju oloro toju ba koju, eni aari dede.
Omo apasa abara lomilomi, Omo abisi abara lomilomi.

Okomo nila lailabe, Omo elehinkunle adese rere.
Omo Iku adimula.

Oko Mojisola alaso ofi,
Baba Toyin, baba Seun, baba Iyunade
Awo Akogun GKB, ni Oluyole, Awo Femi Davies l’Egba Ajibodu.

Olori Oko OPC kaafata, Apase OPU kaakiri aiye.
Aare Gani kan, Ile Oodua kan.

Awon onile kootu oojire aduro ti e o.

Aase.

My Ten Kobo.
