stories and histories UDIROKO FESTIVAL

UDIROKO FESTIVAL
Olorunborun Day like Halloween Day in Europe coincided with the assemblage of returning war chiefs under the Iroko tree in Ewi's palace. The day was symbolically associated with praise worships and prayer sessions, libations were offered to heavens. Ado war chiefs were led by Bafon in an all night jamboree following the invitation of other military commanders and mercenaries for their annual post war reports to Ewi.
Emissaries from subordinate powers, the Oloris, Cabinet Chiefs, Efas, rulers of satellite towns with the gathering of Ado indigenes pay homage to Ewi. The modern Udiroko festival is celebrated with pomp and pageantry heralded with speech from the throne. The purpose is to highlight events in the outgoing year. It is also a medium to share developmental plans and activities for the forthcoming years and to rejoice with those who have been identified for new distinctions and awards.
Udiroko or Olorunborun Day is an annual event usually observed in August, to usher-in a new traditional year.
EWI BEMI UDIROKO, ONITAJI BEMI ESUN'SU
ME YO JUDI, ME YO MOR JONA
EH HI KO'SE OLOJA MEJI
MAA BU'SE EWI HA LO
This was a saying that proved the supremacy and prominence of the Ewi over all other Kings in Ekiti, which has can't be contested.
