Wealth (AJE) is the abundance of valuable resources or material possession or the control of such assets . The festival symbolises peace, unity, wealth and prosperity for the people. Odun Aje the festival for the veneration and worship of the goddess Aje, who is the guardian goddess for wealth, profit, wealth creation and sustenance among the Yoruba race. If an individual wants to be wealthy the physical things he or she must engage in are quite apparent. For example, a trader at Oshodi market must get a shop and decide upon what to sell in the shop.
Aje is responsible for profit making in the market place, and in fact, supervises the entire aspects of life that relates to money. It behoves us to note the special place of this goddess in the traditional economy of the Yoruba race as it centres on the open air market place of old which of course still exists today.Add a comment
