Shango Takes Oya From Oggun
Shango soon realized that he is the Orisa of Happiness, as he was different from his siblings who where formed in their mothers womb. He came to the land of Olodumare Ara Orun ( heaven) and the origin of his brothers and sisters ws ILE IFE. Shango knew that he was the contagious happiness of the earth and things having to do with IKU or OCU ( death and sadness) had nothing to do with him , He recognized that life was too short and he had no time for sadness. This is the reason the OMO shango’s do not want anything to do with death , They are not afraid of death it is because their concept of happiness is more important than having to deal with sorrows and tears . And phenomenons distrubed Shango as death is considered a phenomenon as well Shango launched his plan into action as soon as Oggun left for the forest to fulfill his tasks of the day. He seized this opportunity to take Oya. who after just a short time could not resist the charms of Shango and fell in love in his arms. Their love, which began in vengeance soon turned into a real love. Oya had decided to abandon Oggun and live with Shango in his ILE (house). They could not live without each other and they decided to go to live in his Alafin (palace) which Shango had shared with his sister Dada. This action caused one of the bloodiest wars ever fought in the kingdom. Even Yemaya had to step in and intervene between Oggun and Shango before the destroyed the planet . She was able to calm them as her powers where well known and respected, as they where well aware she could destroy them with her waters. During this time Shango dedicates his attentions on Oya, and this was enough reason to make Oggun furious. Oggun Knew that it would be impossible to win his wife back ; therefore, he went off in the forest and refused to work . This was something that alarmed all the Orisa’s. as they need his labor to survive. They each one by one tried to convince him to resume his duties but none could succeed. Even his mother Yemaya failed to bring him back All Oggun wanted was to be left alone, and he spent much of his time drunk and at peace.
