Product Description

This work draws from the wisdom of the Kpolí Fá of the Fá divination system from the Vodún perspective. Most of these alo, or proverbs, are one to two-line statements of profound wisdom as expressed by the Ajă people of Southern Benin Republic. Contained within this ground breaking work are 342 of some of the most complicated proverbs wrapped in Afrikan deep mystery found in Máwùfɛ (Afrika). Many who do not live this culture will not be able to unravel the profundity of the messages contained therein. Hence, for the first time, an Ajăgbè[1] to English translation of proverbs from the Ajă people are being shared. All proverbs are first expressed in the N’ko Afrikan writing script, then in Ajăgbè using the Latin script, transliterated to an English translation, and finally followed by a breakdown of what the proverb means. Another unique aspect of this book is that it shows you when and how to use these wise words. Finally, the author let's the reader know to which Kpolí Fá each of these proverbs are attached to.


"5.5" x "8.5", 112 pages, Softback


[1] The word “gbè” means language, speech, life among the Ajă people. It also references dialect. Thus, the Fɔ̀n dialect of Ajă is called Fɔ̀ngbè.
