For Most non-Nigerians, the drama and beauty of Yoruba culture remains a closed book. And even younger Nigerians, whose education has been tempered by the immediate concerns of international culture and global economics, there are mysteries aplenty...
The Yoruba people have much to be proud of: look at the way in which the English celebrate their great writers such as Shakespeare, the Japanese their ancient theatrical traditions. Or, in the vein of popular culture, see how famous Brazil and Trinidad have became through their Carnivals.
An annual Osun Gbamila Festival would change all that, gradually putting Yoruba Culture on the international world stage-where it belongs alongside so many other great world cultures.
