OgĂșn speaks in the coconut

OggĂșn speaks with his devotees through the Oracle of Obi or BiaguĂ©, one of the most important Yoruba oracles, which serves to communicate the consultants with the Orishas. Thus, the deities help them to prevent themselves from different evils and advise them.

The Biagué oracle It owes its name to a soothsayer named Biagué, who according to Yoruba legends was the first priest who worked with the pieces of coconut (obi) and transmitted the teachings of the oracle, thus he openly exposed it to consult the Orishas from the simple to the complex of the Yoruba pantheon.

This system was the same as that used by his son Adiatoto (the name by which the oracle is also known) to show everyone that he possessed the wisdom of his father and that he was therefore his true heir.
