Adieu, Omo n’Oba n’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo Erediauwa I

Omo N'Oba Erediauwa

 

 

Ide Imariwo o, Ide Imariwo

Elu e – dugbe dugbe!

Igodomigodo! Igodomigodo!

Igodomigodo !! Igodomigodo!!

Omo n’Oba, son of Ogiso Akenzua

The curtain has been pulled, your

mortality enforced. So, journey well.

 

In Edaiken Eheneden, the royal blood

of the Ogiso’s flows on. So, travel well.

Regale Eweka, Ewedo, Udagbedo,

Uwafiokun, Eware, Ovoranmwen, your

Grandfather, Eweka II and all who went

ahead of the land of Edo. The peace you

brought, the fruitfulness of the land.

 

Solomon, Igbinoghodua, Aiseokhuoba

Son of Akenzua II, Igodomigodo hails you.

Iyase Igbe, leader of Eghaeuho N’ore

broke the Osorhue! Eeewo!!! Eeewo!!!!

But Eheneden has been prepared,

Your son is ready to lead … your subjects ready.

Look back, bestow the land with your blessing.

 

*Esagien avbe Ogiso lekokpo vbetebite!*
