In the face of double tragedies befallen the Yoruba nation as a race at this critical period of our lives, when we are yet to recover from the loss of our heroes in the recent times, we receive with grave heart and rude shock the news on the demise of Professor Sophie Oluwole: A cultural titan filled with depth knowledge of Yoruba history and anthropology, flaming wisdom and undying love for our culture and tradition.

Mama Professor as fondly called, is a distinct role model and an icon, epitome of bravery and truth, An embodiment of Omoluabi per excellence.

Mama, remains a legend of Ifa theology, a moving encyclopedia of repute, a Philosopher of Yoruba Science and Culture.

Mama enlivened our dark sided opinions on African Traditional Religion with light and wisdom.

Mama, we the entire members and leadership of the Yoruba Council of Youths Worldwide will forever miss you, having earlier chosen you as Guest Lecturer on the topic “Omoluabi Principles: A Dying Ethics in Yoruba Land” at our proposed Omoluabi Day Fiesta slated for January,2019 wherein you specifically accepted and further said your next book on Omoluabi will be out soon, hence our departure that night at the palace of the Ooni of Ife where you were honoured with a special Recognition Award by His Imperial Majesty, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja 11, The Ooni of Ife alongside other eminent Nigerians.

For we love you, but God loves you more.

May God Almighty grant you eternal rest, and your family and the entire Yoruba nation, Nigeria, Africa and world at large the fortitude to bear this great loss.

Adieu Mama Oninure

Adieu Mama Professor

May your soul rest in perfect peace… Amen.
