    1. ogun elemosho should read ‘ogun elemona’

      there’s this book we used to have at home during my childhood years (some 20,25 years ago), ‘Asa ibile Yoruba’ with a greenish cover. I didn’t think much of the book then but I’ll give anything now to have a copy. Such is life, my roots calls strongly even after after several years in foreign lands.

  2. Meje ni ire,
    Meje Loogun
    Ogun Alara ni je Aja
    Ogun oni gbajamo, irun ori ni je,
    Ogun gbenagbena amu eje
    Ogun Elemona, Oje igi ni mu
    Ogun onikola, aje igbin
    Ogun korakora ni je ekuru funfun,
    ogun onire, agba Agbo,
    Bi e ba gunyan nile, efi toogun sile,
    Bi e ba rooka nile, efi toogun sile,
    Nitori ogun lo roko,
    Ogun lo pa ajuba.

  3. This is both fantastic and wonderful, I never know some people still hold over culture in high esteem as this. My people, Ogun is one of the deities that our fore-fathers celebrated and they live much more longer than what we have now. Eyin omo Yoruba karo ojire, e maa je ka gba gbe isese nitoripe isese lagba o.

  4. This is the actual full “Oriki Ogun” as I learnt from Prof. Olojubu over 25years ago.
    Ogun lakaiye
    Ọsin mole
    Ogun alada méjì
    Ofi okan sanko
    Ofi okan yena
    Ọjo ogun nti ori oke bo
    Aso ina lo mu bora
    Ẹwu eje lowo
    Ogun onile owo
    Ọlo na ola
    Ogun onile Kongun kongun Ọrun
    Olomi ni ile feje we
    Olaso nile fimo kimo bora
    Ogun apon leyin iju
    Egbe lehin omo kan
    Ogun meje logun mi
    Ogun alara ni n gb’aja
    Ogun onire a gb’agbo
    Ogun ikole a gb’agbin
    Ogun ila a gb’esun isu
    Ogun akirin a gb’awo agbo
    Ogun elemono eran ahun ni je
    Ogun makinde ti dogun leyin odi
    Bi o ba gba tapa a gb’aboki
    A gba ukuuku a gba kemberi
    Nje nibo lati gbe pade ogun?
    A pade ogun nibi ija
    A pade re nibi ita
    A pade re nibi agbara eje ti nsan
    Agbara eje ti ndeni lorun
    Bi omi ago
    Bomode ba ndale
    Ki o mase da Ogun
    Oro Ogun leewo
    Ara Ogun kan go go go!
