From University of Lagos, i was opportuned to visit my homeland and see what my ancestor worship and believed in, it was an opportunity to hear the stories of half a century ago and see for myself what this gods look like and why they are worship.

Osun state is a sate in Nigeria found base the things mysterious thing the early settlers of the land witnessed from the Yeye Osun goddess and the Osun river which is referred to as herbs because of the healing it has done in the lives of the people.

Apart from the Osun Osogbo groove, myself and colleagues from my school also visited the State of Osun House of Assembly.

It was a wonderful experience.
