‘Whenever you use Google, you’re consulting Ifa’

Google originated from the ‘Ifa’ also known as the oracle, the Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Ogunwusi, has revealed.

According to reports the traditional leader said that without ‘Ifa’, Google would not have been created.

Ogunwusi said that ‘Ifa’ as a form divination, was all about sourcing for information and knowledge through traditional consultation.

The traditional ruler said that Google could be regarded as the modern way of sourcing for past information and what was likely to happen in the future too.

He said that ‘Ifa’ originated several thousands of years ago and is seen as the voice of the almighty God referred to as ” Orisa Oke” which is supreme to other lesser gods.

”Without ‘Ifa’, there could never have been Google, so it is the modern-day version of ‘Ifa’. ‘Ifa’ is all about information, getting knowledge from the Almighty God.

Whenever you search the Google for information or knowledge, you are consulting ‘Ifa’; and without ‘Ifa’, there would not have been Google.”

He said that ‘Ifa’ was still relevant in contemporary time, saying that was why people were still consulting the oracle for information and solutions to their problems.

Ogunwusi explained that if the modern day youths and the educated wanted to know the date of any important event, they would search for it from Google.

‘That is part of the functions that Ifa’ does for its believers and followers; that is the truth but it may sound strange,” he said

Boluwatife Balogun, first son of award winning Nigerian Afro-pop musician,Wizkid, is set to start a clothing line.

Boluwatife, through a post on his mother’s Instagram page, said that the line will be launched on his birthday, May 13.

 

Boluwatife fondly called Bolutife, expressed interest in styling his dad and his favorite Nigerian singers, Davido, Ycee and Olamide.

The little boy explained that they were his favorite Nigerian singers because they seemed to shine effortlessly.

His mum, Shola Ogudu, unveiled the clothing line, Czar and Czarina on his birthday in May 2018 when he turned 7. Ogudu said that the wonderful birthday gift made her first son a CEO at 7.

The 7-year-old is now planning to launch a clothing line which he had big plans for as he revealed in an interview with Goldmyne TV explaining the reason for his choice. This is quite reasonable seeing as Nigerians are fashionable people and would spend any amount of money to look good. It is obvious that Boluwatife adored his father despite the hostility between the singer and his mother.

Boluwatife must be getting a lot of support from his father for his dream to be coming true.

 

Tiwa Savage preaches love

Popular Nigerian singer Tiwa Savage recently shared a short motivational message with her fans and followers in the online community, in which she briefly talked about love.

It would be recalled that over the past few days, popular Nigerian singer, Tiwa Savage, had been a subject of discussion in the online community after some of her colleagues in the music industry jumped on Kizz Daniel’s music challenge and used the opportunity to heavily shade her.

It appears the singer is not swayed by all that is coming her way as she recently preached about love via her Instagram story platform.

She begged the question as to why it was so difficult for a lot of people to show love to one another.

According to her, a lot of the pain people are dealing with is simply because many have refused to practice the act of showing love.

In another photo that accompanied her message, the singer was spotted in front of a mirror as she flaunted her hour glass shape.
