Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, ooni of Ife, on Monday led Yoruba to celebrate the annual Aje festival in Ile-Ife, Osun state.
The monarch said the prayers offered at the last Aje festival made the naira stronger in 2017, adding that the survival of African people rests heavily on the sustainability of the culture.
“As Christians or Muslims, we all need to respect our cultural heritage,” he said.
“In 2017, we prayed during the Aje Festival and we centred our prayers on the economic recession, and within one week, we surprisingly experienced dollar crash from about N480 to N350.
“We have prayed and very soon, the economy will improve tremendously.
“Aje is the spirit of market profitability. That is why it’s festival is very important to all humanity, because nobody can survive without it”.
“If we do business, profit is expected, if you work you expect stipends at the end of the month, so that is simply Aje.”
Idowu Philips, a Nollywood actor better known as Mama Rainbow, Saheed Balogun, an actor/producer, were present at the festival.
