My Ifa Initiation Made Me a King

With strength does one beat Ogun drum
With energy does one beat Ija drum
If a mouse knows the history
And understands the workings of Ogun and Ija
The mouse shall be spared of untimely death
This was Ifa’s message for Isekuse and Itekute
When going to initiate the Oba of Oyo into Ifa
They were advised to offer ebo
They complied
The Ifa initiation I underwent turned me into a king
My initiation into Ifa made me prosperous
My Ifa initiation made me a king
