Abstract

Foreign religion and civilization have been adduced for the modification or perhaps total eradication of some aspects of African cultural life especially in the Yoruba nation. The impact is felt mostly in the once cherished cultural festivals of which Oloku festival of Okuku, Osun State of Nigeria is inclusive. Relying on the eye-witness account of Ulli Beier of 1956 and other available literatures on the festival, this researcher was at Okuku in 1992 to capture the event for his Master’s Degree Dissertation in the Institute of African Studies, University of Ibadan, but unfortunately, the festival was abrogated two years after. Therefore, this field investigation intends to find out the circumstances or factors surrounding this act.
