Nigeria is one of the African nations with an extraordinary social legacy which is gladly kept and secured by her
kin. From the south toward the west, east and northern parts of the nation, Nigerians are a pleased arrangement of individuals who are constantly arranged to go any length to safeguard their social legacy.

Consequently, NAIJ.com went by the Osun/Osogbo woods, where the feared Osun goddess, known as Yeye Osun lives and where the yearly Osun/Osogbo celebration happens. The celebration is continually being gone to by other African countries, as individuals likewise come into Nigeria from far away Brazil, Peru, Cuba, America, Germany UK, among different nations of the world, a sign that Osun is a standout amongst the most treasured states in the starting point of the Yorubas particularly. Amid the visit to Osogbo, the Osun state capital, our journalists met the Chief priestess Chief (Mrs) Adedoyin Talabi Faniyi, the embraced girl of Madam Susanne Wenger (the late Iya Orisa of the forest), who gave a decent record of how things function in the forest. Prior to our passageway to the patio, the Chief priestess was seen assuaging the divine forces of the waterway. "Yeye ooo, Omi ooo," she said in Yoruba, signifying "My mom, water" similarly as a method for reverencing the goddess that dwells in the water. On entering the patio, we were made to secure our shoes as it no one was permitted to wear shoes inside the hallowed woods, as our cameras were banned from entering the Osun holy place where relinquishes and demands are being made. Aside from the concealed 'forces that be' in the hallowed place, our reporters accumulated that the woodland is a hazardous one around evening time due to the wild creatures that come outside to "play" when the general population have cleared out. Indeed, even the central caretaker of the waterway who "nourishes" the Yeye Osun told our reporter in Yoruba that, "I can't remain inside this place past 4pm. Ask individuals around, anything that transpires after this period is absolutely your business." The Osun goddess is likewise known to be a mother of numerous youngsters as the "Osun Olomoyoyo" picture inside the place of worship delineates. Numerous fruitless ladies have apparently gone by to have the stream goddess help them with kid holding on for a few guarantees made to bring something back for the divinity. While a number of them have recalled to satisfy their guarantees, some others overlooked in travel and have been managed by the Yeye Osun oooo



Also, until they follow their means back here to pay their promises before the Yeye, they might keep on having issues with their kids, paying little mind to where they live," Chief Faniyi disclosed to our reporter.

What's more, after whatever give up that is made to assuage the goddess of the stream, our reporters assembled that no one is permitted to think back as any individual who wills live with whatever outcomes that takes after. Oro yeye
