Alot of reactions have trailed a video from the 2022 Ojude Oba Festival which held in Ijebu Ode, Ogun state, on Monday, July 11.
The festival is an annual traditional event that brings people from Southwest Nigeria for a carnival-like celebration of the traditional, cultural and spiritual accomplishments of Ijebuland.
A video from the festival was shared online to give people a glimpse of how it went down, and it has gathered different reactions due to the heavy downpour.
In the video, multitudes of men and women are seen defying the rain to participate in the festival. They were matching and parading with a banner under the rain.
Reacting to the video that has social media users wondered why they couldn’t get a ‘rainmaker’ to stop the rain from falling pending the duration of the festival as it’s a common belief that rainmakers can control the rain in the Southwest region of Nigeria.
Some others questioned if ‘jazz’ is no longer working in Yorubaland because they expected the traditionalists to ‘hold the rain’.
