Young ‘Babalawo’ who’s also a graduate educates public about his profession

A young babalawo (native doctor) who’s also a graduate named Orunmila Jogbodo Oluwo has educated the public about what it means to be a babalawo on Facebook. 

According to a Facebook user Adekunle Al Miftau Adeite, who condemned the way Babalawos are being portrayed in Nollywood movies, Oluwo is not only educated, but a graduate of the University of Ibadan.

He wrote:

Nollywood’s stereotype of Babaláwo is a dirty raggedy human being. Let’s puncture that. This young man is not just a babaláwo, he’s an Oluwo. Clean. Neat. Educated.

Aboru Aboye Orunmila Jogbodo Oluwo.

His Facebook page indicated that he studied linguistics at University of Ibadan.

He wrote in one of his posts on the platform:

As an Oluwo, my purpose is to help people to heal. Regardless of how difficult or stubborn a person is. Many people believe that they can outsmart Ifa or the Babalawo.

What they fail to understand is that they hurt themselves and their progress. I share this to say, that all of you that are working hard to help people. Don’t get discourage, the broom of Ifa will always sweep away the hypocrites.
