Oba Ogunwusi so wipe, “Our ancestors will be appeased during the period and by the time I come out on Saturday for the grand finale, the seclusion rites would have been be concluded. It is a celebration of the creation of the universe and many visitors from within the country and the Diaspora will come around to celebrate with us. My duty is specifically to offer prayers and that I will do to the best of my ability. This year’s Olojo Festival will witness an unprecedented participation of foreigners; the members of the Black Caucus of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives and about 150 other black Americans have already indicated interest to participate in the festival.”
