Owu: Omo ajifepe sere (the Owu son who brandishes his EPE daily for the fun of it!)

What is Epe?

What does it look like?

Many have misconstrued it to be a chain or whatever.

Actually it is a sword that serves as a symbol of Owu royal authority.

It was one of the war weapons of the Owus during their war-like days.

Every Owu indigene should strive to look at one.

What is the meaning of that name , and how did it derive?

The name derived from thr name AKINDELE ONILU OGBA

(Akindele in whose grove the sound of drumming is frequently heard).

Onilu Ogba became corrupted to Anlugbua!

As to who he was, be on the look out (on the pages of Owulakoda.wordpress.com) for the full story.

Owu Day, 2009 – The 10th in the series.

On Saturday the 10th day of October, the crescendo of the week long 10th Owu Day in Abeokuta, Ogun State Nigeria will be flagged off with Owu indigence from all corners of the nation and the world in attendance.
This shall mark a classic numerical configuration of the 10-10-10, the 10 in Trinity: The 10th Owu Day Festival, taking place on the 10th day of the 10th month of the year (which just narrowly missed being the 10th year of the new millennium)!.
Surely some poetic and artistic inspiration may have surged behind the selection of such time rhythm!
Prior to this day, a week long activity would have kicked off on Monday, 5th of October, with various levels of entertainment and programs in the offering.
The weeks’ events shall be brought to a close on Sunday 11th of October with a church service which will be attended by invited prominent guests.
Further information on this annual carnival of the Owu Kingdom and its people shall be posted as they unfold.
