Ijesa descendants Mark Owa Adimula Day

Thousands of Yoruba people of Ijesa origin in Brazil have marked the Owa Adimula Day in some cities across the South America country.

The Ijesa descendants settled in Brazil over 500 years ago and have since sustained their culture and religion.

They were taken to Brazil during the slave trade. While a few returned home in the 17th and 18th century, thousands remained in Brazil.

There are some 20million blacks in Brazil of which over 90 percent of them are of Yoruba origin
