July 3rd, 2016 – Ronke Oshodi Oke Ojo: Osun, The Yoruba Goddess Movie Is Based On A True Life Story

Nollywood actress Ronke Ojo is currently working on a new flick titled Osun, the Yoruba Goddess (formerly titled Osun Sengese).

This is what the actress said about the upcoming movie.

‘Osun, the Yoruba Goddess’ is based on a true-life story.

The Yoruba race is losing its culture. Some say Yoruba gods are fetish;; I don’t agree with that. I am a Christian and I know Jesus came to this world for everybody, and for me especially.

And I know God sent Prophet Mohammed, but if Christianity did not come from Jerusalem and Islam did not come from Mecca, what will you and I be doing now? Of course, we will be with our traditional gods.

I just sat down and said to myself ‘if I don’t do this, who will correct those who feel that Yoruba gods are fetish?’ Is it all pastors that will go to heaven? Or you do you think all babalawos (herbalists) will go to hell? God doesn’t judge anybody;; you just do what you feel makes you happy. I have not been to India but I watch Indian films a lot. They still practice the Hindu religion and there are Christians and Muslims among them. The Chinese have churches but they still do their cultural thing, so why are we shy about our gods? It really baffle me. The film is almost done now and I want people to see that God wants us to be who we are. God also wants me to be Yoruba and that is why I was born and brought up in Yorubaland.

If God wanted me to be an American, he would have made sure I was born there.

    You have no single idea what you are talking about. You have just made known the shallow, fake, accommodative Christianity you have. Christianity is NOT a polytheist faith. The Ten Commandments alone proves you an idolatrous woman. God was not mincing words when He said that He is a jealous God and that we should have no other god but He. You are here defending Ogun like the god is the author of your success. Who knows?

    Every other god, whether Yoruba, Hausa or from any other tribe or race for that matter is fetish, and those that worship them or place relevance on them in the name of culture shall be like those lifeless gods.

    Are u now sayg God supports idolasm, maybe u should go back to ur bible were God emphasized u should not worship any other God before nor after me bcos I am a jealous God.
    Before time inmemorial there as been worshipping of idols but that does not mean u worship IDOLS and worship God at d same time. And its not all yoruba people that are traditionalist so u need to differentiate or get ur facts right.

    Mrs Ronke is CONFUSED looooool

    Mecca had “360 gods” before the advent of Prophet Muhammad (Allah’s Blessings and Peace Be Upon him). Yet, when Meccans found Islamic Monotheism which Muhammad (p) brought, they abandoned idolatry that their forefathers used to worship. Do you understand Mrs Ronke?

    Mrs Oshodi Oke, these verses of Quran speaks to you….read

    “And when it is said unto them: Follow that which Allah hath revealed, they say: We follow that wherein we found our fathers. What! Even though their fathers were wholly unintelligent and had no guidance?”

    (سورة البقرة, Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #170)

    “And when it is said unto them: Come unto that which Allah hath revealed and unto the messenger, they say: Enough for us is that wherein we found our fathers. What! Even though their fathers had no knowledge whatsoever, and no guidance?”

    (سورة المائدة, Al-Maaida, Chapter #5, Verse #104)


    “(Remember) when Abraham said unto his father Azar: Takest thou idols for gods? Lo! I see thee and thy folk in error manifest.”

    (سورة الأنعام, Al-An’aam, Chapter #6, Verse #74)

    Hope You Take Heed Mrs Ronke Beofre It’s Too Late

    Madam, you are talking rubbish. If you be for Christ then you are for Him and if you are not, you are not for Him. Serve and preach one God.

    With the state of Nigeria I say whatever God anybody like let him worship, as long as they don’t interfere with me or my family and don’t damage the image of my country Nigeria by getting involved in fraud and drugs and all sort of immorality, i am not bothered. live and let live. let God judge everyone by their actions. All of you on here claiming to be better than this lady, can you hand on heart say you are 100% honest and clean? given the chance most of you guys will do the same things or even more than what has been undercover by various investigations going on now.let’s stop this pretense. All the corruption and fraud being uncovered daily by EFCC are the perpetrators not from the 2 main religions, have you heard of one traditional worshiper having being caught siphoning national cake and laundering it abroad and buying houses both in Nigeria and abroad and bullet proof cars designer shoes and watches and jets ? please people let us be rational, whatever anyone believe let them as long as they have the best interest of their Nigeria at is not rocket science to deduce that most of these people who profess to be whiter than snow are phony. we are surrounded by wickedness and selfishness and evil and lawlessness. Look at other countries for example India main religion is Hindu worshipers but they are forging ahead in all fields of technology and science and agriculture and impacting the world to make a difference for improving the living standard of the world at large, same with China; Buddhism, Taoism, Islam, Protestantism, and Catholicism and muslim minority they are leading the world in many fields now.We need to ask ourselves why are we that is always posturing and purporting to be whiter than snow still in this state of perpetual decay and abject penury in the 21st century? it is clear that no matter what one believe or which religion we affiliate with the core matter is whether one is truthful and sincere and patriotic. The evidence is all clear for all to see , both 2 main religion has had detrimental effect on our collective consciousnesses to the extent that it will take years of re-orientation to undo the damage. For starter we need find a common ground for peaceful coexistence and work to banish tribalism and nepotism and cronyism and corruption including overzealous religiousness in our society;then we can focus our attention on how to move the country forward. At the end of the day its what is in your heart!

    #live and let live.
