You are invited to call 347-850-1533 TRUE TALKS WITH OFAE OFAE on Sunday, November 16, 2014 at 6: pm EST with our special guest Iya Ayaba OchaBi Awodele-Ifaseye to discuss "AMERICAN IFA: Finally Recognized".
In the wake of the recent turmoil that have been coming out of Nigerian and Lukumi Ifa/Orisa communities, initiates in the diaspora have been caught in the middle and feeling the pressure from both faiths on either end. What the initiates, particularly AFRICAN AMERICANS are now asking is; WHAT IS OUR IDENTITY? The Yoruba are saying, we can initiate you but "you will never be Yoruba" and the Cubans are saying they will train you only if you speak Spanish and pledge allegiance to them only. So, WHY IS AMERICAN IFA HERE?
What is the problem?
What is the key to the core of the problem?
Can we define the problem to deleted or minimize causes(s) that created the problem?
What is the final analysis about the problem?
What method(s) will we use to find the correct solution?
What are other challenges will we meet to bring change(s) in the diaspora?
How will we implement the solution to a mass of people or to a segment of people?
SOME PEOPLE MAY BE WONDERING WHY IS IFA (NIGERIAN AFRICAN SPIRITUAL SYSTEM) LACED WITH POLITICS THAT EXTENDS FROM NIGERIA TO THE DIASPORA AND BACK. SOME MAY BE WONDERING WHAT AMERICAN IFA /THE FRAUD PAGE/MUSLIMS AND CHRISTIANS HAVE TO DO WITH DEMYSTIFYING IFA. JOIN US ON TRUE TALKS WITH OFAE OFAE THIS SUNDAY, JANUARY 11, 2015 AT 8:PM EST BY CALLING 347-850-1533 FOR THIS EXCITING NEW YEAR'S EPISODE ENTITLED "DEMYSTIFYING IFA: POLITICS AT HOME AND ABROAD.
IS IFA POLITICS ABOUT THE RELIGION IN THE MOTHERLAND OR IS IT ABOUT THE BUSINESS OF IFA IN THE DIASPORA WHICH SOME THINK IS A BASTARDIZATION OF THE RELIGION IN THE MOTHERLAND?
IS THE POLITICS WITHIN IFA AT HOME AND ABROAD THE ELEMENT OF THE MYSTERY IN THE RELIGION ITSELF THAT KEEPS THE MYSTICISM GOING? IS IT THE ACTUAL RELIGION THAT NEEDS DEMYSTIFYING?

Do join us live on Sunday, September 21, at 8:pm Eastern Standard Time by calling 347-850-1533 for an insightful and thought provoking discussion on TRUE TALKS WITH OFAE OFAE
Aboru and Alaafia to all! There are a group of people who are using FACE BOOK pages as a means to destroy the images and reputation of Popular Ifa/Orisa/Egun practioners using SLANDER AND COWARDICE (hiding their idenity). It seems as if they have personal vendettas against individuals with HIGH PROFILES in the Ifa/Orisa/Egun communities. Their vendettas stem from disputes over differing opinions on HOT TOPICS that involve how these high profile people represent Ifa/Orisa/Egun to the world. These people are taking away the love people have for Ifa/Orisa/Egun in their roles as "SELF-APPOINTED IFA FRAUD POLICE"
You are welcome to join this insightful discussion by calling in 347-850-1533 on Sunday, October 26, 2014 at 12:30pm for episode of TRUE TALKS WITH OFAE OFAE with our special guest OLOYE SOLAGBADE POPOOLA, President of the International Council for Ifa Religion (ICIR). We will be discussing the CODE OF ETHICS FOR IFA & ORISA DEVOTEES AND INITIATES WORLDWIDE.
What are the CODE OF ETHICS as handed down by the ICIR? Who are expected to follow these Code of Ethics? Is there or will there be a campaign to instill these Code of Ethics in the minds and hearts of devotees and initiates? What are the implications for not following these Code of Ethics? Is there some form of disciplinary action in regards to breaking the rules as set forth in the Code of Ethic? Who will be responsible for disciplinary action, if need be?
On TRUE TALKS WITH OFAE OFAE we will continue our discussion "CHANGE WITHIN THE RANKS OF IFA/ORISA LIFE" with PART (3). Please call 347-850-1533 on Sunday, February 1, 2015 at 8:pm EST to DELIBERATE over the present state of THE INTERNATIONAL COUNCIL FOR IFA RELIGION (ICIR) and the presidency that has opened a can of old worms involving, CORRUPTION, SCANDAL & ADULTERY. Hopefully we will hear from the suppposed new president SOLAGBADE POPOOLA on the issue.
This show will focus on the following issues:
1.) IS SOLAGBADE POPOOLA OFFICIALLY THE NEWLY APPOINTED PRESIDENT OF THE ICIR OR NOT?
2.) IS SOLAGBADE POPOOLA INVOLVED IN THE CORRUPTION SCANDAL ALONG WITH OTHER EXECUTIVES OF ICIR AND ALSO WITH KNOWN DETRACTORS WITHIN THE IFA/ORISA CIRCLES IN NIGERIA AND THE DIASPORA?
3.) HOW DOES THIS ICIR SCANDAL AFFECT US IN THE DIASPORA AND OUR RELATIONSHIPS WITH ICIR AND TRADITIONAL IFA OF NIGERIA?
4.) DO YOU THINK WHETHER OR NOT THAT THE ICIR IS CAPABLE OF WORKING ON BEHALF OF US IN THE DIASPORA GIVEN THE REPORTED SCANDALOUS CONDUCT ITS MEMBERS ARE PORTRAYING TO THE WORLD COMMUNITY OF IFA/ORISA PEOPLE?
5.) DO YOU THINK THAT THE PRESENT SITUATION CAN BE REMEDIED BY INCLUSION OF WOMEN FROM THE AMERICAN IFA ON THE COUNCIL AS FAIR REPRESENTATION OF IFA WORLDWIDE?
6.) DO YOU THINK THAT IF WOMEN FROM AMERICAN IFA ARE ON THE ICIR EXECUTIVE BOARD THAT THEY TOO WILL BE ACCUSED OF BEING PART OF THE CORRUPTION?
7.) IS THIS CORRUPTION A LONG STANDING SECRET THAT INVOLVES SWINDLING THE PEOPLE OF THE DIASPORA?

IF YOU ARE LIVING THE IFA/ORISA/EGUN LIFE, YOU, YOUR SPIRITUAL HOUSE OR COMMUNITY ARE INVITED TO SHARE YOUR EXPRESSION OF IFA/ORISA/EGUN LIFE THAT YOU LIVE IN THE WAY YOU DO IT. YOU CAN SHARE INFORMATION (THE DOs and DON'Ts) OF ANY ASPECTS OF YOUR IFA/ORISA/EGUN LIFE THAT WILL HELP OTHERS TO BETTER UNDERSTAND THE GOODNESS OF LIVING THE IFA/ORISA/EGUN LIFE.
HOW IS YOUR HOUSE (ILE) STRUCTURED SUCH AS PRIMARY LANGUAGE USED IN TERMS OF DEVOTION TO IFA/ORISA/EGUN?
WHAT EVENTS PERTAINING TO EGUNS, ORISA AND IFA DO YOU PROMOTE AND WHEN?
DO YOU HAVE CLASSES FOR STUDENTS AND HOW AND WHEN ARE THEY OFFERED?
DO YOU HAVE A HEALTHCARE SYSTEM IN PLACE TO ADDRESS MENTAL SPIRITUAL, PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL AND FINANCIAL ISSUES?
DO YOU HAVE PROGRAMS GEARED TOWARD PARTICULAR GROUPS OF PEOPLE SUCH AS CHILDCARE SERVICES, AFTERSCHOOL SERVICES, MARRIAGE AND FAMILY COUNSELING OR ELDERLY CARE?
WHATEVER IT IS YOU ARE DOING FOR THE BETTERMENT OF ALL WHO LIVE THE IFA/ORISA/EGUN LIFE, PLEASE COME ON THE SHOW AND SHARE YOUR INFORMATION. YOU CAN USE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO SCHEDULE TO TALK MORE EXTENSIVELY AS A FEATURED GUEST ON A FUTURE EPISODE OF TRUE TALKS WITH OFAE OFAE. WE ARE ABOUT PROMOTING IFA/ORISA/EGUN LIFE AS EXPRESSED IN ITS VARIOUS FORMS, WORLDWIDE.
It is said that "IFA WILL MEND OUR BROKEN WORLD" but in looking at the state of affairs in the Ifa-Orisa-Egun Worldwide FAMILY, and the closed-mindedness other religious families have towards us, it is of great urgency that we assit IFA in the mending of our broken world. In the Ifa Odu of the Year, (JUNE 2014-JUNE 2015), "ODI OGBE" WARNS all DEVOTEES AND PRACTIONERS that there would be many who come to destroy the image of the AWO when Solagbade Poopola wrote; "grand conspiracies and intrigues against all Awo the world over. Adherants of other faiths are making all efforts in their power to surpress and overwhelme all Awo in order to ensure that they do not amount to anything in the scheme of things". IFA NEVER LIES and because of that, Ifa cautions all AWOS (adepts) to not misbehave, especially towards women or else...Instead, seek for amicable resolutions to differences and not use your spiritual powers to attack other AWOs or for the purpose of control as many men who feel they must have control over a woman or be higher than a woman in rank and status are doing now.
HOW DO WE GO ABOUT GETTING OTHER RELIGIOUS GROUPS OFF OUR BACKS? WHAT ARE SOME POSITIVE WAYS IN WHICH WE CAN PROMOTE IFA TO NON-IFA/ORISA/EGUN PEOPLE WITHIN OUR COMMUNITIES? WHAT POSITIVE STEPS DO YOU THINK WE WOULD HAVE TO TAKE AS INDIVIDUALS IN ORDER TO HELP MEND OUR BROKEN WORLD? WHAT CHANGES HAVE YOU AND/OR YOUR IFA/ORISA COMMUNITY MADE TO HELP MEND OUR BROKEN WORLD?
