Seere * Sheere = The Voice of Shango…
“No-One Can Speak On Behalf of Shango Olukoso”
Seere A Small Gourd Had No-One To Serve, No-One To Attach Herself To. Two Other Kinds Of Gourd, Igba & Akingbe Were Serving Oya & Odo Respectively. Seere Consulted Ifa & Ose Meji Appeared.
**She Performed The Sacrifice Required Of Her**
Ifa (Ose-Meji) Made Her Medicine & Told Her To Go As Soon As She Had Eaten It To A Shango Shrine. When She Reached The Shrine, She Threw Herself Down In Reverence To Say: “Hail To You Shango” All The Seeds In Her Stomach Rattled Loudly. Shango Heard The Noise & Was Overwhelmed By It. Shango Called Out In Glee: Bring Out The Bata Drums, I Will Dance Round My Realm. Seere Will Go Before Me She Will Make Noise. Seere Saka Siki – Seere Siki Saka “Ose Ose Ose” Ever Since Then Seere Has Been Used As The Voice In The Worship Of Shango.
