Chief Lanre Okemuyiwa relates a very powerful lesson on teaching Orisa to the children. "Ọ̀rọ̀ àgbà bí ò ṣẹ lóòwúrọ̀ bó pẹ́ títí á ṣẹ lọ́jọ́ alẹ́ ." If the words of elders do not come to pass soon enough, they will, eventually. Osun, Obatala, Ogun and Obalufon are professional dancers. Each has a child. Osun is mother of Ide, Obatala is father of Oje. Ogun is the father of Irin. Obalufon is father of Baba. Ifá advised them to take their children everywhere.Only Obatala brings his son with him. The king organized a dance competition to see who will become the next generation of dancers. Osun tried to teach her 45 year old son. Ogun, too tried. Obalufon as well. When the competition started, the drum directed the dancers. Ogun son was first. He danced but could not bend. Osun daughter tried but could not bend. Obalufon sent his son but he couldn't bend. Finally, Oje went to dance. He bent and twisted. He was proclaimed the winner!
