Inle protested; Well, everyone knows that, and Elebara tells her, yesterday your baba Olokun punished you because you exedited yourself, you touched your mother Yemayá's buttocks. Inle, astonished, told him: "Yes, no one knew but my father, my mother and I, you really are a great Babalawo, I want you to make me Ifá."
