Crown Day at Ganlodo
Aza Ago means to celebrate the crown in the Fon language. Today marks the 8th year of the crown of HIM Axosu Àgèlògbàgàn Jisovi Agbovi I and the beginning of the ninth year of the era of the restoration of order and culture in Afrikan traditions. Thus, this is day 1, year 9 of the era of cultural and order restoration. This was marked by the crowning of Axosu Àgèlògbàgàn as the first and only axosu outside of Mawufe on Dokun 8, 6251 (Sep 27, 2010). We celebrate this day not only because His Imperial Majesty was crown on this day, but because of his extraordinary and unique contributions to the elevation of Afrikan Vodun and Isese and restoring cultural and ethical dignity to said traditions.
It would be on Voto 16, 6253 (May 5, 2012) that His Imperial Majesty founded the only Kilombonu (Maroon) Afrikan monarchy in the world, Ganlodo. This was historic and positive and progressive moves are being made in the name of Vodun through Ganlodo that have never been seen before. Salute the king of Ganlodo.
*Note: Depicted in the post photo is the Axoxo lee ton Aza Sika Ganlodo, or the Imperial Golden Crown of Ganlodo; a special crown of distinction commissioned by His Imperial Majesty Axosu Àgèlògbàgàn Jisovi Agbovi I in the year 6255 A.X.(2014 Gregorian). Though he wears other crowns, this crown is the official state crown of Ganlodo. We will soon post on the significance of this New Afrikan Royal Jewel.
