Ojude Oba 2018: Cultural display of the Ijebus
Culture, they say, is the way of life and what differentiates one culture from another varies in language, dressing, belief, attitude, and many other factors. The Yoruba culture is one of the largest African cultures still actively in existence. The Yoruba people are not just a single group but rather diverse people bound together by common language, history, and culture. Yoruba mythology holds that all Yoruba people descended from Odua or Oduduwa. Kingship is an integral part of this culture because kings at the time are the sole ruler of their communities before the dusk of colonization.
Ojude Oba festival is one of the avenues where Yoruba culture is colourfully and elaborately showcased. With a large gathering at the Awujale’s palace arena, regberegbes (families) come in hundreds, dressed in similar elaborate traditional attires to celebrate the fact that they are alive to see another Ojude oba festival and in turn pay their homage and allegiance to their Awujale (King). The event involves colourful horse riding display and gun shooting to present each regberegbes while special dignitaries from all over the country come to witness the elaborate display of Yoruba culture and other amazing entertainment.
