Product Description

 

We are happy to announce that His Majesty Agelogbagan Agbovi's latest work, Kilombo Paradigm: Maroon Sovereignty through Vodun Culture, is now available! This profound work is a unique and well researched book. It is unique in that nowhere in Afrikan traditions in the world will you see such an analysis that breaks down the spiritual, political, social, economic, and sovereign thrust of Afrikan culture and how to use it to obtain sovereignty in such a clear cut way. The Kilombo Paradigm is a solid treatise and real solution to that old question: "What will it take for Afrikan people to get back on top?". The Kilombo Paradigm offers a step by step program towards achieving Afrikan sovereignty and obtaining sovereign space. It is based on the concepts of family development, nation building, and full ReAfrikanization. The political thrust of the Kilombo Paradigm, combined with its envelopment within authentic Afrikan Vodun culture and spirituality, lays out a functional plan for economic, political, family, national and spiritual elevation. The Kilombo Paradigm is the answer to taking Afrikan culture to the next level of functionality and producing worldwide respect for Afrikan people.

A Kilombo is a sovereign space that was created by those captive Afrikans who escaped captivity and created sovereign communities. The Kilombo Paradigm informs us that we must first create that sovereign space in our minds before we can successfully create sovereign spaces (kilombos) in the world. The Kilombo Paradigm is the culmination of 27 years of involvement and leadership in Afrikan-centered programs, institutions, and study of and immersion in Afrikan culture and spiritual sciences of Afrikan Vodun and the Isese tradition of the Yoruba people.

  1. Astounding! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Jul 2018

    This is a manual of forward thinking.


  2. I'm in! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Jun 2018

    This book is well over due! I totally agree with the previous review who said: "Any book you've read in the past regarding the development of a sovereign African nation, just wouldn't compare to this book." I thought I had read them all and from all schools and then I run across this site and this book. A friend of mine told me about this site four years ago and for some reason I did not take advantage of it nor the books. I stumbled back across it and I saw the new book. I took a chance because frankly a lot of books out here do not deliver on their topic. This work is 100% in line with its topic and proposed goal! This is the book I've been waiting on and didn't know I was waiting on it.

    The author's grasp of cosmology, history, sacred time, Pan African politics, African spirituality, and how to tie them together is unprecedented in my 34 years or of study. I was impressed by the use of so many real Afican (mainly Yoruba and Fon) terminologies and phrases. I'm drawn more to tradition and want to know more from this author's perspective a something not easily done for someone like me. The author comes out strong in his comparison of the whites and their kin's comparison to the role of maggots in society and how maggots only enter decaying bodies. In that, the author posits that we must focus on our internal issues and that way the whites cannot do what they have been doing to us.

    I can go on and on. But I am finally greatly impressed to finally see an African writing system in this book. It is called N'ko and mainly used by the Mande people. I am on my second read. Thank you King for this wonderful plan called Kilombo Paradigm.


  3. Mind-blowing 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Apr 2018

    Any book you've read in the past regarding the development of a sovereign African nation, just wouldn't compare to this book. First off, it deals with the cultural importance and impact on the national identity. This is key in an African context. Our culture is inseparable from the culture that it lives in. Unlike western religions. This book breaks down the difference flawlessly. It also talks about the importance of the family and its essential and fundamental role in the African nation. There are so many things I enjoyed about this book. I particularly like and agree with the author's stance on absolutely no non-Africans being involved in the tradition. They have no blood connection to it. This book overall though pours over every detail necessary for any sovereign African nation and it even anticipates current and future challenges that will occur along the way. All of this is done in the context of the Vodun and Isese cultures. I've personally never known a writer to do that. In short, it is a ground-breaking classic.


  4. Review for the Kilombo Paradigm 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Apr 2018

    This book is limitless in its implications and applications. I can go many angles with this book. But I am particularly fascinated with how the author breaks down the truth concept of family development, mission statements and how all of this ties into spiritual traditions of Africa. But what truly got me outside of that was how the author breaks down the virtual and literal structure of the Kilombo in the section "Kilombo Sovereignty and Liberated Spaces". The author gives a clear and concise view of how the Kilombo should be structured both physically and ideologically. He presents the concept of Togoxometogo which he states in Fon is a way to refer to the various levels of the Kilombo to keep it from being penetrated by "enemies without and within". As a person that studies security, and trained in various forms, I can totally identify with this. It is good to finally see this type of serious thinking applied to African traditions. Now the real thing is out there and it is exciting.

    From the author's tone, which I can understand, I am sure he would disagree with this book being used in an academic setting. However, as an educator I would like to see this work used at various Historical Black Colleges and Universities in their psychology,sociology,history and religion departments. This is just a suggestion because many of these young people who are ready won't have access to this type of information otherwise.

    Finally, I can see the concepts of the Kilombo Paradigm working when the right people get together. Thank you in advance for allowing my review to be posted!


  5. Intriguing and thought provoking 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Mar 2018

    Great study


  6. I give this book 100 stars! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Mar 2018

    This work is a good balance between the academic and spiritual but it makes one think about a strategy from the African spiritual perspective. This is where we should go!


  7. There is no need for another book after this one 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Jan 2018

    This book is truly a well thought out plan. I knew there were missing elements in the practice of ATRs but I could not put my finger on it. This book has put my finger on it and more! The concept of how we should view times and approach it in nation building is quite astute in this powerful book. If one has a family, it is perfect because it illustrates that we cannot carry out the plan of sovereignty and nation building without family being the center of that development. Wow! I have looked at ATRs (African Traditional Religions) for a while and often felt put off by the lack of forwardness. I can see this did not pass on the author and he has thoroughly addressed what is lacking in African religions today.


  8. Excellent 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Dec 2017

    This book says it all.


  9. A Powerful Plan 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Dec 2017

    This is an actual plan of action. And it is a call to action I completely hear. With every turn of the page I was jolted with a desire to do much more. I have considered myself a nationalist for over 30 years and I have never seen anything like this. The "family focus within nation building" is all through this book. Great job! My favorite book.


  10. Very detailed 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Nov 2017

    I never really reviewed a book I bought but this book is amazing with every turn. To keep in line with it's integrity. I will just say..... Nothing about this book disappoints and it seems to contain the things we need.


  11. Great book happy to have 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Nov 2017

    It is a bit hard to understand but I see the author's intent. I literally have to read this with a good dictionary and with not one distraction. Then maybe subjects like this cannot really be made more simple? Sometimes the complicated terminology seems to overwhelm. This author Agbovi has other books that are more simple in presentation (I have Iwakiri and Ritual Essence). So I was hoping he did the same with this one. Otherwise, this is quite wonderful.


  12. Insightful 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Nov 2017

    Being of a Panther mind, I compare this book to a modern 10 points program for black power. It may even be a 100 points program. I agree with the other reviewers here. My only thing is to ask if the author is willing to teach people like me and my family on this subject? What about those of us who want to join this movement but don't have access? But this book is excellent and I pray that I can speak with someone there soon.


  13. A masterpiece of sorts 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Nov 2017

    I am astounded by the amount of information in this work. I am equally astounded by the amount of our language that is in here. I really didn't expect it to be that much. But I watched the author's video on this book and I have to say he is true to his word concerning this book's content. In fact, with respect, the video and the description on the page don't do this book justice.

    Kilombo Paradigm is like a sacred guideline. I need to read this over and over. The concise plan that the author lays out is previse and do-able if we can come together. I would like to contact the author soon after I comprehend more of this book.


  14. Ahead of it's time but on time 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Oct 2017

    This book has slowed me down caused me to re-evaluate myself and kind. My intention was to read a little over time. I ended up devouring it immediately but I saw I missed a lot. It will take some time to digest this. There is so much new African terminology introduced in this work. I am glad to know have African words for certain concepts I only knew to express in English. The focus of this book on family development as a requirement is quite unique and needed.


  15. Only about 40 pages in 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Oct 2017

    I am only about 40 pages into this work and it is more than I expected even from this author. I don't think you will find anything like this among ATR practitioners anywhere. His approach is very unique and on point. It calls into question how I have viewed reality, time, and African religion in general. I will leave another review upon completion.
