Oriki Osun



Oriki Osun

Osun State was created on August 27, 1991, in the southeast of Oyo State and is named for the River Osun, a crucial river that flows through the state. This is why the state is inhabited by the Yoruba people, mainly of the IbibioIfẹIgbominaIjesha, and Oyo subgroups.

With an estimated 4.7 million residents as of 2016, Osun is the ninth-smallest by area and the nineteenth-most populated of Nigeria’s 36 states. However, some people in Osun State still practice the traditional religion. One of the prominent places that best explains people’s interest in traditional religion is the Osun-Osogbo groove.

People from all over the world come to the yearly Osun-Osogbo festival in August to worship Osun, one of the Orisa (the traditional deities of the Yoruba people). The visitors include BraziliansCubanTrinidadiansGrenada, and citizens of other American countries with sizable Yoruba cultural legacies.
