True utilization of traditional Yoruba(SW Nigeria) names
22 March 2002 | by (Richmond,California,U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

This film was filmed on location at the famous ":Oyotunji village near Sheldon,SC.Oyotunji is an African village in which the practioners practice a combination of the IFA,SANTERIA,and VODOUN religion. Lord Shango is a movie that utilizes names from the traditional Yoruba religion called,"Ifa".LORD SHANGO has characters such as ,"Femi","Banjoko",and ,"Shango". Shango is the Deity of fire and lightening and male virility.Femi is a nickname which means beneficial to me. Last,"Banjoko" which is a name of an African deity in the movie,is a traditional name that you give a child that has a history of dying and then returning in a subsequent birth.Banjoko menans,"stay with me(implying that maybe this time that child WILL NOT be "Abiku"(a child who dies prematurely-before ones parents). Although the movie is a little cheesy';nevertheless, I like the storyline.As a high priest (Babalawo) of the Ifa religion-I'm glad that I've encountered a movie with traditional African religious themes that doesn't "Voodoolized or Demonize" African Traditonal Religion.
