About Awo Ifaloju
Aso-Oke also called Aso-Ofi by certain sub-ethnic groups, among the Yoruba people, is the traditional cloth used in the Oke-Ogun and other areas where you find large rocks, hills or highlands.
These places get cold during the dry season early mornings, so this cloth originated in those areas, due to necessity, the video displays the traditional way (which is still used to date) of weaving this cloth in the Yoruba hinterlands, this video comes from Iseyin town, popular for Aso-Oke, some footage from other areas of Republic of Benin and Saki.
The cloth is hand woven as said before, and custom designed to taste. The craft is a true labour of love and this was surely the progenitor of what we call ‘blue jeans’ today. Many parts of Africa, India and the Orient make similar woven cloth, in a similar fashion if not identical.
The Aso-Oke is mandatory during traditional Ifa wedding ceremony, as part of the ‘load’ the bride-groom will bring for the bride, this is spoken about in detail within the recent book by S.Popoola & F.Oyesanya called Ikunle-Abiyamo. Which deals with the issue of marriage and the requirements according to Ifa. Aso-oke as with other cloth shows unity with people and specifically aso-oke acts as a symbol to unify a couple in marriage, which the groom provides to show-prove comfort, warmth and means, a must in traditional African marriage namely among the Yoruba people & Ifa followers.
The sue of cloth, and namely this traditional cloth, can not be substituted, in present day the use of lace is the vogue in Nigeria, yet the women to show opulence, will still wear a ‘gele’ head tie or waist wrapper made of this aso-oke, to accentuate their attire or show their means.
It is also common place to see several women use this aso-oke in unison to commemorator marriage, family, community group, relationship or so many other things.

BROTHER VICTOR A. BRADY IS “THE CHAMPION OF DARKNESS”..
I AM AFRICAN
I AM BLACK
by The Champion of Darkness
The U.S. Constitution,
“Article 33″ says I am 3/5 human being,
but that’s because I am 2/5 God.
Amen is the most holy word ever used in prayer. It salutes a Black ancient King, Amenhotep, Pharoah of Egypt, creator of our monotheistic religious beliefs.
My genetic heritage connects me to the original and most ancient Gods of man.
“The face of the Sphinx is my face.”
My presence on this planet is essential because I am representative of those original Godly ancestors who started the process of human development and parented all civilizations. Their blood continues to run in my veins and my brain cells contain the genetic memory of their incredible creative and supernatural powers.
They are the original creators of:
the wheel and flying machines
genetic engineering of other humans in their image.
They also created new breeds of animals and plants.
The only reason I am 3/5 human
is because I am 2/5 God.
I represent the original man.
All other humans came from me.
I am an essential part of nature.
The rays of the sun do not make me ill.
My hair is the most original among all living organisms and grows like the spiral movement of the heavenly bodies and other natural forces.
It represents the spinning of our planet, the curling of ocean waves, the spiral movement of sea shells, the spiral movement of climbing vines, and everybody knows the tornado moves like my hair grows.
Samson’s strength was not in the length, but in its originality. An unscrupulous someone rearranged this information in an effort to confuse me.
Samson grew weak because someone tampered with his hair. His hair was his strength.
My hair is my strength.
My hair is knotty.
I cut it not,
I straighten it not,
I color it not,
I chemicalize it not.
Look upon all other creatures with hair
and see how I stand out amongst them.
My broad nose,
and original hair
are the essence of my being.
These are just a few of the heavenly things
which makes me 3/5 human, 2/5 God.
And a God does not tamper with its essence.

I find, in being Black,
a thing of “Beauty”;
like a joy; a strength;
a secret cup of gladness …
a native land in neither time nor place …
a native land in every Black face!
Be loyal to yourselves;
your laughing kinds
are Black kingdoms,
vast as any other.
