DOWNLOAD MP3 SONG OF AJE OLOKUN
This inspirational and spiritual traditional Yoruba music opens gates for prayers to Olodumare (God) through the abundant praises and prayers to Aje Olokun.
It is a piece of evergreen music that everyone that loves Aje and any Orisa music should really have in their houses, library, phone, and Laptop.
First fact about the Goddess of wealth (Orisa Aje) is that, she is among the loved Orisa out of the 401 gods that is being worshiped.
The main capacity and strength of the goddess of wealth is to provide sufficient wealth and greater economic benefits for whoever worships her.
ORIKI AJE (PANEGYRIC/PRAISES/EULOGY OF AJE)
Aje is usually praise this way in the morning:
Aje Karo o
Aje oniso booji
Eni ti eru ati omo n fi ojojumo wa kiri
Iwo ni labomon ti bori aye
Aje Iwo lajiki
Aje Iwo lajige
Aje Iwo lajipe
Iwo lani ra opolo aran aso oba ti kona yanranyanran
Aje agba orisha je ki ni lowo maje ki ni e lorun
Aje fi Ile MI se ibugbe, fi odede MI se ibura, aje o jire loni oo
Aje good morning
Aje you are the owner of sea
One who has shelter
Aje you are the ones who people seek solace under your shield or umbrella
You are the ones who promote younger person to the position of elders
You make old look younger
You are the force and power that rule the world
Aje is you that every human being around every day they wake up
Aje is you we wake up to greet
Aje is you we wake up to praise
Aje is you we wake up to call upon
Aje it is through you we acquired beaded jewelries and golden jewelries
Aje it is through you we acquired expensive clothes
Aje you are the the elderly of all orisha
Aje let me have you in form of money in my pocket not in form of debt on my name
If you look at the translation, it seems that Aje is thought to be the owner of the sea ie Olokun. It seems that what I heard about Aje being Olokun’s daughter is incorrect. I guess Aje also being called Yemoja is like calling a Tiger Ekun and Ogidan.
SECOND ORIKI AJE (PANEGYRIC/PRAISES/EULOGY OF AJE)
Aje iwo lobi Ogun ilu
Aje iwo lobi Olufa
Aje iwo lobi onipasan owere
Oyale asin win bear asin win dolowo
Oyale asi were oso asi were di aniyan-pataki
Aje pe le oa kin lOrisas
Agede ni wo Ajenje lotu Ife ti o fi njo koo ti ni
Aje dakun wa jo koo temi ki or ma kuro lodo mi
TranslationAje gave light to the war of the city
Aje gave the light to the boa
Aje you gave the light to Onipasan owere
He went to the madman’s house and made him rich
He went to the crazy man’s house and made him a character
Aye, I greet you, the last one who arrived among the Orisas
Aje, eat banana fruit in Ifá so that you can come with one
Aje please, come to me, stay with me and do not leave me
Oji ni kutukutu mokun ola dani
Olomo siju pee wole Aye loruko IFA
Eni ti o ba siju rere re wo nii lowo
IFA kio siju rere re woo mi ki nlowo…
He who robes the child to befit the child
He who robes the child with the utmost of care
The one who wakes early in the morning, holding the robes of prosperity
The one who looks after the Earth is the name of IFA
Whoever you look to with your eye of compassion is blessed with prosperity
IFA, please look at me with compassion and let me be blessed with riches…
IFA, please look at us with your compassion and let us be blessed with riches! Ase Ase Ase O!
Brief History of Aje Olokun
AJE is known to be the daughter of Olokun. Nevertheless, Olokun himself respects AJE, that is why it is sometimes being referred to as AJE Olokun.
In fact, some are of the belief that it is essential to praise AJE before anyone can get favour from Olokun, this is due to the fact that AJE is the only daughter of Olokun and Olokun loves her dearly.
AJE can be found in waters. This was the source of spending cowries before the advent of present currencies. All she (Aje) takes are; banana, beans, ekuru, oyin (honey) and so on. All these could be said to be the main reasons why all you see about AJE is white clothes, cowries e.t.c and all must be clean.
How Can Anyone Benefit From AJE?
Goddess of wealth provides wealth for her worshipers in a very unique and natural way. Goddess of wealth blesses her worshipers beyond their mates and colleague in whatever they do.
In other for anyone to be blessed by the goddess of wealth, it must not be by just worshiping her, there must be something such worshiper must be doing that AJE Olokun is expected to bless for sufficiency. This simply means, AJE only help those who help themselves.
Female Genders and Goddess of Wealth
Another fact about the goddess of wealth is how the female gender are more beneficiary to having the spirit of Aje (wealth). This spirit in its real sense has no damage to the lady herself, neither to the beneficiary.
In fact, such female may ordinarily not know that there is the existence of any spirit in her and this is why we have most of them distributing their glory from one man to another. As each man sleeps with such lady, a tap of her glory must go with it.
It should be noted, taking good care of anyone of such spirit is equivalent to worshiping AJE herself. The more one takes care of any female with such gift, the more he or she is blessed in his/her endeavours.
It was emphasized that we also have some men with such spirits, but they are not as common compared to the number of females, as it was initially stated that AJE herself is a female.

How Olokun Met Aje
Sare sese, ko maba tayo’re
Rin gbere gbere ko ma ba da ire wonyi nu…
This verse is to explain how man should react to wealth, and how to take care of the goddess and lastly, its benefits. The verse is an illustration of the experience of Orunmila when he went searching for the goddess of wealth at Oja Ejigbo mekun.
Orunmila, like others was in search of the goddess but he did not rush; he took his time and followed the instructions given to him. Others went in search of the goddess of wealth but the goddess hid herself from them, seeing their desperation. When they left, Orunmila came on goat as directed by the ifa divination and the goddess of wealth chose to follow him.
On getting home, Orunmila offered her banana and other special foods she likes. The goddess of wealth was so pleased and she became the great source of wealth that Orunmila has till now.
