Hello to all the users of the Ifá applications developed by Ifábíyìí Akódà. This time we are writing to you because we want to know how the applications have influenced the learning and pronunciation of Ifá verses and to know the results. For this reason, we decided to organize a Yoruba pronunciation contest for the Ifá verses.
To participate, you must send us an audio reciting an Ifá verse in Yorùbá found in any of the Ifá applications developed by Ifábíyìí Akódà. We will reward the person with the best pronunciation for their dedication. To make the contest more fair, our Babalawos in Oyo, Nigeria, will be the ones who will decide who has the best pronunciation in Yorùbá of the Ifá verse. Whoever wins the contest will receive five Ifa verses of their Odù or the Odù of their choice, in Yorùbá and their translation in English and Spanish, as well as including their respective audio in Yorùbá, recited by our Babalawos.
Participation is completely free
To take part in the contest, you must have an active account in the VIP Area created in any of the Ifá applications.
The verse to be recited must be in any of the applications published so far
You must send your audio by WhatsApp to the number +34 689-282-995, specifying the name, surname, the Odù that is being recited and the section in which the verse is located within the application.
The deadline to send the audio ends on August 31 (included)
The winner will be announced on September 30 on the Facebook account and in this post.
It is important to remember that users of the Ifá Traditional application (free) only have access to the Vip Area provided that they have received additional information from Ifábíyìí Akódà to that existing in the application, as established by the rules of use of the app.
In this way, we hope to continue contributing to the learning of the traditional practice of Ifá. Remember that the content is provided by us, but dedication to learning is individual.
