"Today, we honor Sango, king of Koso, consort of Oya Oriri, the one who is so beautiful you must look twice. And while the other orisa were also kings, Sango is recognized as a king of kings. Certainly, this is partly due to the fact that he is the lord of fire, who uses thunder as a weapon. But what really distinguishes Sango as a leader is his total devotion to truth. Along with Ogun Lakaiye, he upholds honesty, loyalty and integrity.
According to the Holy Odu Idigbere, which was cast for the world at Ile Ife in June 2014, Sango and Oya promised their assistance. More precisely, in the face of deliberate tests by many people, Sango will disgrace those who have wrongfully challenged the Ifa priest.

Cast Ifa for Orunmila, the great historian
When going to initiate Sango into Ifa
Orunmila was installed as chief redeemer
Orunmila was installed as chief builder
Orunmila was installed as the perfect one
Sango later returned to assist him
Olofin was not happy when he heard that they called Orunmila the perfect one. He invited Orunmila and threatened that he would behead him if he failed to do something magical. He wanted him to move the tree in the market to the front of the palace within seven days. Orunmila was thinking of his death when Sango and Oya came. He explained his ordeal to Oya and Sango who assisted him by using their power to move the tree from the market to the palace. Then Olofin bowed for Orunmila and agreed that Orunmila is indeed a perfect man.*
Perfection is not the same as flawlessness. Perfecti_on is wholehearted devotion to truth. When you use all of your natural gifts and talents in service to the people who matter most, you are travelling the road of perfection. May Sango and Oya help you to live the medicine that will heal your life and the lives of those you are destined to serve. Learn more at www.ObafemiO.com."
