I'm no Meghan.
I'm from a royal bloodline.
A lineage of royal warriors and priests.
A clan of kingmakers, game changers.
We will journey to the land of my ancestors
Ifa priest will preach.
Oya will bless my womb.
Sango will fire bad belle people.
Daughters of Oduduwa choir will minister.
My dress will be from the finest silk aso-oke,
Handsewn by the Palace dressmakers.
My great great great grand father wrestled the god Esu, He lost an eye, three fingers and walked with a limp the rest of his life.
But He returned with the Bogun Bolu staff Esu stole from our shrine.
This I shall carry on that day.
Eledumare will bless us with twins and triplets Asoebi will cost 1000 cowries.
Vow exchange at Oyo shrine.
Ogun will be our witness.
Amala & Ogufe very plenty.
Dear Future Husband,
The chiefs of my family,
They will test you.
For they are feminists.
The female is sacred.
For you dare to enter warrior territory
The heart of the great Oyo Empire
To carry away a Queen.
Gird your loins.
Call your brothers in arms.
For the day you carry a Queen away from her clan.
You also will become a god.
