The day I was crying for not having children
She was advised to offer sacrifice
They wished him good fortune as sons
And that I would have many children
Then the Worm decided to go to the river
She decided to live in the swamp
That was where she decided to marry her husband
And began to have children
Life pleased her
She began to dance and rejoice
She was praising her Babaláwo
His Babaláwo praised Ifá
She said it was exactly what her Babaláwo had said

Patakie of the sign Obara Bogbe:

It was guessed for corn to have children.

When corn lived in Heaven, it was by divination where OBARA-BO-OGBE to prosper on EARTH. He was warned that he must make sacrifices to have many children. He was told that he must serve ESHU with a goat and other materials that he must acquire with credit. She did as she was told and after making the sacrifice she came down to EARTH.

While on EARTH, one morning the naked corn arrived at the farm and the farmer, her husband, planted the corn on the farm.

When the corn began to produce, it brought in four thousand two hundred children at a time, each of them lavishly dressed. That is why it is said that the corn travels to the farm naked and returns fully clothed.

Back home, the corn was rejoicing and thanked ORUNMILA for helping him produce many children and have many clothes.

It was guessed for ORUNMILA when his friends were bewitching him


Ebara baba, Ebara bobo, was the AWO who made divination for ORUNMILA when his companions wore the faces of friends and had the hearts of enemies. Eager to know the secret of ORUNMILA's success, Ekolo professed friendship with ORUNMILA, which made it very close to him to know what he was doing at all times. Ekolo however was a sorcerer who used his transfiguration into an earthworm the works and designs of ORUNMILA. As a consequence, ORUNMILA's work didn't go straight for long and it got lost in every move it made.

In divination, ORUNMILA was told that he had to make a sacrifice because his friends and enemies had marked each of his clothes having different and bright colors. The mark constituted the light with which the enemy guided himself to reach ORUNMILA's house and damage his work.

He was told to sacrifice with a rooster, a dove, a slug, and a plate of asheses. In addition to the marked clothing or suit.

He made the sacrifice, after which the plate of asheses was deposited outside ORUNMILA's house, while the IFA priest who performed the sacrifice takes the marked clothing home.

When the sorcerer friend returns the next night he is confused, because the light he used to see through ORUNMILA's house is no more. ESHU saw the earthworm searching around ORUNMILA's house and asked him what his mission was. He replied that he was a friend of ORUNMILA but that he had lost his address.

ESHU promised him that he would help him if in reality he did not come as a friend but as an enemy because he was there to destroy ORUNMILA. Faced with this confession, the earthworm explained that he was coming to destroy ORUNMILA's latest work. ESHU told him to get into the divination dust plate which ORUNMILA used to perform all his miracles. Thinking that the plate of the asheses actually had the dust of divination (Iyerosun) as ESHU had made it look like such, the earthworm got into the plate and the asheses cut it into three pieces. But the earthworm was forbidden to eat asheses and died instantly.

When ORUNMILA left the next morning, his supposed friend Ekolo was found dead on the plate of the Asheses. It was then that ORUNMILA realized that Ekolo had been his enemy all along. Then he sang: “EWA WO EKOLO. OTI GE KELE KELE. EKOLO ROGODO TINBA ORUNMILA SHOTA ».
