According to the organizer of the festival, Chief Yusuf Adekola, the event will witness a convergence of Ifa worshippers both in Nigeria and in the Diaspora. He said the annual festival is a means to ensure that traditional religions in Nigeria and Africa at large are preserved for posterity.
He said: “This is the 11th edition of the Ogbe- Alara Festival. We are focused on the promotion and protection of traditional religions such as the Ifa religion. And we believe as Africans, we must continue to uphold our traditional religions. We also use the festival to showcase upcoming musicians alongside top stars. Last year we had King Saheed Osupa and this year, Alayeluwa Sule Alao Malaika is the headline artiste,” he added.
