A Veteran actress in the Yoruba movie genre of Nollywood, Alhaja Anike Alajogun who is Elizade Motors’ boss, Chief Ade Ojo’s cousin has revealed that despite the fact that she is a devoted Muslim, she is strongly believes in tradition precisely ‘IFA ORUNMILA’ Oracle.
The highly intelligent actress cum top socialite rocking Ibadan and United Kingdom social scenes, who has several textile shops at Gbagi, Hotel and also work as a Nurse at a government hospital in Manchester City, London made this revelation in an exclusive chat she had with popular Nigerian Entertainment Journalist, Gbolahan Adetayo this morning.
A few months ago, particularly in April 2020, the Yeye Oba movie star was trending on social media and online news platforms prior to an unforgettable experience she had in the month.
While speaking with Gbolahan Adetayo from her base in UK, Mrs Alajogun revealed that she has so much believe in tradition than any other religions on earth.
According to her, “glory be to God Almighty for His Mercy which endureth forever. I am alive today to praise His holy name. God knows those who are worshipping Him genuinely. As you can see, I am a devoted Muslim, I have been to the holy land (Mecca) in Saudi Arabia for pilgrimages seven times. I was once a Christ follower but I believe in IFA ORUNMILA so much. Many of us are liars, we don’t always like to say the truth. Many Muslims do go traditional when things go other way round for them and everyone knows that. Christians are worse, they are pretenders, they claim to be holy but they visit herbalists for power. Though, there are some who are real Pastors, Prophets or Evangelists but 90% are fake. They go to herbalists for power to perform fake miracles, same with Muslims . Those ‘Tira and Aseje’ Spiritual concoctions, what are they for? We should just stop deceiving ourselves, only God knows the righteous man. We have read so many in the news about pastors and Alfas.
All of us are Men and Women of God, there’s nothing like Men of God in my diary, they can be called Pastors or Evangelists, we are all Prophets and Prophetesses. If I need anything spiritual, I will rather consult Oracle for solutions than going to a Christian or Islamic clerics. I was born and brought up with IFA ORUNMILA. My forefathers were IFA ORUNMILA worshippers, i can never forget Orunmila lailai, Yoruba adage has it that “eni so ile nu, o so apo iya ko” literarily means there’s danger ahead of a man who ignores his source. At some point, my family decided to stop worshipping IFA ORUNMILA and embraced Christianity and Islam, the men among them started dying one after the other including my father. As a Muslim, I know truly who I serve, when I come to your mosque to pray, you can deny me the access, I will do my prayers in my bedroom. The holy Quran made me understand that prayers said by a woman in her room gets fast answers”, Alhaja Anike reveals.
