Thank you for visiting our Internet site.
In the meantime, If you have any relevant information regarding the late warrior you wish to share with us, please forward it to us via our email address: email@example.com. The emphasis of our site is on Ogedengbe himself. This topic is certainly an interesting and educating one.
History books, Journals and Epic movie has been made in honour of Ogedengbe but having a website in his memory will surely retain all the useful pieces of information the Yoruba Warlord left behind in the most modern way.
We sincerely hope that by having all these information on the Internet, the wonderful history of the Great Ogedengbe, Ilesha's favourite son shall be sealed in the 21st century and beyond and immortalised for many more generations to see.
This is definitely a history in the making that must never be allowed to die.
To all the ogedengbe descendants and Ijeshaland indigenes all over the world - I salute you!! - Baba re a gbeo !!!
