Ganlodo does not only help elevate its family members- citizens proper. It should be noted that we also provide spiritual services to the general Afrikan community such as: 

General Ifa Divinations
Roots Readings/Ipilese Fa – Detailed Fa reading that speaks on your true ancestral origins, ancestral family and clan names, the names of the ancestors you descend from on both sides, the years in which they were put into captivity, family occupations and family deities, family “curses” or spiritual ailments and how to remove them and much more
Zoto Readings – a Fa reading specific to the Aja culture of Benin, Togo, Parts of Southern Ghana, and Badagry SW Nigeria. This reading reveals your sponsoring ancestor. Among the Aja (also called Fon people) one’s zoto is very important to know and is a major part of knowing one’s destiny. The Zoto is the ancestral guiding light of the individual. This Zoto often has left the earth without fulfilling a key mission in life. This, they will hope to achieve, through the living descendant that he/she sponsors.
Hand of Ifa – Ceremony to find out your destiny. Done from the Aja Vodun perspective.
Relationship Readings for Heterosexual Afrikan Couples
Guidance Towards ReAfrikanization for Individuals, Couples, Families and Communities
Further inquiring about any of these services can be submitted by Afrikan people at ekaabokilombo@gmail.com

Hwetanu Sakpata alo Azandin – Sakpata and Solstice Celebrations at Gànlɔdó Maroon Monarchy

Ku do bi hwetanu Sakpata alo Azandin!

Greetings to All for this (celebration) time of the deity Sakpata and the Solstice

As we enter a new month, we are also blessed to be able to immediately honor and praise the great Ayixosu (king of the earth) Sakpata on the second solstice, which falls on our Dedagbe 2, 6260 (December 21, 2019 Gregorian year). 
Sakpata is strictly a deity from the Aja culture (often called For people) of Southern Benin Republic associated with illnesses and healing. To clear up misinformation concerning Sakpata mavomavo, we say that Sakpata:
A) is not a Yoruba deity
B) is not the same as Babaluaiye/Sonponna of the Yoruba
C) is not primarily the deity of smallpox
D) does not cause smallpox in general
E) is not associated with end-of-the-year rituals
Sakpata is associated with the second solstice. During this time we invoke Sakpata to cleanse away various illnesses from our families and communities whether they be regular physical illnesses and/or physical illnesses that are the results of internal mental and spiritual illnesses. Sakpata, as a hùn of justice, also deals with moral illnesses. It should be noted that contrary to the primary misunderstanding by black americans in the Isese (“Ifa/Orisa”) tradition, Sakpata is not the same as the Yoruba Babaluaiye though they both share the same basic functions and characteristics. Secondly, contrary to the misunderstanding of the black american Isese “practitioners”, the ceremonies for Sakpata and Babluaiye are not associated with end of the year celebrations and definitely not in relation to the Gregorian calendar. The only people that associate Sakpata or Babaluaiye with “end of the year cleansing” are those in hwendo Máwùfenu (Afrikan culture) who still follow a European calendar and do not have a Máwùfenu calendar of their own – their year starting on the Gregorian January 1. 
Anyone wishing to gain more clarity on the above can contact the Gànlɔdó Kilombonu Xotome (Gànlɔdó Maroon monarchy) and/or want to learn more about how to become a functioning family member – citizen of Gànlɔdó are free to contact us at ekaabokilombo@gmail.com

Additionally, when one thinks of Sakapata as a deity concerned with health we think of paying attention to how we treat nature and our food. In relation to food, Ayinon (His Imperial Majesty) Axosu Agelogbagan Azasinkpontin Jisovi Agbovi’s latest book, The Kilombo Cookbook: Aja Foods and ReAfrikanization Diet, contains 160 pages of healthy Afrikan recipes from Southern Benin Republic. This is the first time anyone has produced a recipe book of food from the Aja people. Complete in full color, and unique in containing a glossary of over 300 words strictly related to food, this book is a must have in your process of ReAfrikanization.

This week, Dekpe 12 – Dekpe 19 (Gregorian December 1 – December 7), is national Language Week at the Kilombonu Xotome of Ganlodo. In the sacred Odu Ifa, it is said that Ede (language) is a deity. Thus, to the true Afrikan, language is sacred. Take time out to polish your Afrikan language skills. Not only that, this week reminds us to be precise about our language, whichever one we are using. The way we express ourselves is often reflective of our character. For instance, we often have found through experience time and time again that people who consistently mumble have ulterior motives and straight up bad character.
This week may be a reminder to learn phrases and words from various languages.
For those with good character wishing to build in Afrikan Vodun from a purely Maroon /Nationalist perspective, serious inquiries only can contact us at ekaabokilombo@gmail.com
