Nathan Lugo – Olúwin Òòṣà of Ọ̀yọ́ – Chief Àìkúlọlá Iwíndárà Fáwẹ̀hìnmi

“I prefer to be true to myself, even at the hazard of incurring the ridicule of others, rather than to be false, and to incur my own abhorrence.” Frederick Douglass

 

About Our Chief Priest

Chief Aikulola Fawehinmi Nathan Lugo, our temple’s leader, is a titled Ifa priest, priest of Obatala, and priest of Egungun, and furthers his priestly skills under his master priest Chief Fakayode Faniyi as well as his elders in Obatala and Egungun.

He is the Gbawoniyi Awo of Osogbo’s Idinleke Ifa Temple, the Oluwin-Oosa of Oyo Alaafin (a high-ranking Obatala priest chieftancy title), and has a host of Orisa shrines that he has been properly trained to appease and consecrate.

Chief Aiku is an official member of all these four religious orders: Osogbo’s Ifa society, Osogbo’s Egungun society, the Iledi Ohuntoto Ogboni lodge of Osogbo, and the Obatala society of Oyo. Our Gbawoniyi speaks the ancient Oyo dialect of Yoruba language still preserved and spoken in today’s Nigeria as it was in ancient times. In addition to Yoruba, he also speaks fluent Spanish and English and travels to countries such as Venezuela, Mexico, Spain, Cuba, United States, and Nigeria where he is a respected religious community leader and teacher. Chief Aikulola, of puerto rican parents, is a model of excellence for all latinos that embrace their african heritage as well as other pan-africanists and lovers of culture and indigenous peoples.

***I pay homage and show deep love and appreciation to the individuals that with their deep knowledge and goodness have made me what I am today. May the Olodumare and all the Irunmole continue to bring abundance, joy and peace of mind into their lives.

1st and foremost the man who is both a father and a friend, and who I am eternally grateful for and for whom I wish longevity, good health, joy, and abundance:
*my oga (spiritual master/boss) and oluwo – Chief Fakayode Faniyi, the Aseda Awo of Osogbo, Osun State

*ojugbona – Chief Oyegbade Latona, the Ojugbona Awo of Osogbo, Osun State
*iyanifa/iya agan – apetebi Fafunmilayo Iyalode Faniyi of Osogbo, Osun State

*babaloosa – Chief Iwintola Farounbi Ojoawo, Akowe Oloosa of the Egbe Oloosa funfun of Oyo town, Oyo State
*iyaloosa – Chief Ayoka Adunola Dalemo, the Iyaloosa of Oyo town, Oyo State

*baba eleegun (baba oje – my godfather in Egungun who initiated me into Egungun and has trained me) – Chief Olojede Fasola Meta Ogunjimi, the Eesa Orun Oje of Osogbo and the Aranisan Awo of Osogbo, Osun State

*oluwo ogboni in Ogboni Ibile – Chief Adebisi Akanji, the Oluwo of Iledi Ohuntoto of Osogbo, Osun State
*iya abiye in ogboni – Chief Adedoyin Talabi Faniyi, the Yeye Apenimo of Osogbo, Osun State and Iya Apesin of Masifaa, Osun State

…I also send warm thoughts to all my omo awo/omo orisa here in the states and in other countries as well as my brilliant and kind godbrothers and sisters in Nigeria and here in the states (yes, that is you ATL). Its good to know we are family…blood truly is thicker than water.

***And I can joyfully, confidently, and authoritatively say that women can and do get initiated to Ifa as they have for many generations in many part of Yoruba land. This comes from years of travel and living in Yoruba land and from being able to train and communicate solely in Yoruba language in Nigeria.

I’m also a faithful and proud member of Ajo Olorisa Agbaye (Orisa World Congress) and NOT a member nor supporter of the Ifa Council.
