NAMES! by Adéwálé Ṣóbọ̀wálé

Yorubas are a wonderful set of people because of their culture. In fact, there are so many of their ways of life that make them a unique set of people. Let’s look at names for instance. The Yoruba do not just name their children. Rather, they do with a sense of history. Probably, that is […]

B’OMODE O J’OBI II! – Adéwálé Ṣóbọ̀wálé

F’ỌPẸ́ FUN!  PRAISE HIM!! – Adéwálé Ṣ́obọ̀wálé

I was at a naming ceremony today. To say I wasn’t the happiest will be an understatement of the year. The parents are so-called Christians. Why I doubt their Christianity will soon be apparent. By the way, I used to think it was only the Pentecostal churches that weren’t doing things the way we used […]
