Pataki where Obge Osa reigned alongside the spirits in the land of the Dead
One day when many revolutions were unleashed, a great war took place, and since Ogbe Osa did not want to be involved in such situations, he decided to leave his hometown, in search of establishing himself somewhere where he could get the peace he needed.
After a long walk, he took refuge in a cave because he was close at night.

- One of gold,
- another silver and
- the last of bronze.

As he was about to enter, all three doors opened in unison and Ogbe Osa was surprised to see the three kings come out wearing their red robes and wearing their diamond-encrusted crowns.

So they wanted revenge by snatching his life, pouncing on him with great fury.
Ogbe Osa, realizing this, ran out and when he reached a plant in Moruro he found an old man who was nothing more than Babalu Aye, to whom he asked for help.
He made him ebbó with its branches and also promised to intercede for him.
Then they walked together towards the cave and when they ran into the three eggun kings, Azojano warned them that they could not dañaHe was their protégé and that only he would offer them his services if they respected him and paid him properly.
