How To Pray With Kola Nut In Igbo Language : We Igbos understand that when spiritual gifts are shared, we need to get ours first as giants of Africa seeking God’s heart, so what we will do now is go to the market before morning sunrise and get a 4 cotyledon kolanut,
We had a teaching on kolanuts and their cotyledon meanings in our WhatsApp class, but now we will reteach it for some of us to understand the natural fruit we are blessed with with the help of creation.
Kolanut is a sacred fruit known as ofo. When you are not innocent and in tune with creation, nature, and innocency, you do not touch kola. Everything we see in the world has a reason for being there.
Kolanut has been widely utilized as a symbol by all ethnic groups in Nigeria, notably by the Igbo, Yoruba, and Hausa tribes. In Nigeria, there is a traditional adage that “kolanut is produced in the West by Yorubas, consumed in the North by Hausas, and adored in the East by Igbos.”
Kolanut is used to embellish social rituals of hospitality as welcome offerings to guests, as a sacred offering in religious rites and prayers, and in ancestor veneration. It is widely used in important life events such as weddings, naming ceremonies, funerals, and memorials.
The Hausas call it gworo, the Yorubas Obi, and the Igbos oji or, more colloquially, oji igbo.
Kolanut is sacred, which is why we say “kola is life.” Kola also represents peace. This is why, when you visit an Igbo man’s home, he will greet you with kola nuts and say, “onye wetere oji, wetere udo,” which translates to “he who brings kola, brings peace.”
We have different parts in kolanuts called cotyledons that range from 1 to 6 or higher.
A kola with only one cotyledon is known as a dumb kola or j ogbu. It is known as j mm, or kola of the spirits. It is not consumed.
-Kola with two cotyledons is also a stupid kola and is not consumed. This is why the Igbo do not use gworo or cola nitida in rituals or serious traditional celebrations.
-Kola with three cotyledons is known as j ike, j ikenga, or kola of the valiant. As a matter of principle, only warriors or brave men, as well as consecrated or ordained people, are permitted to consume this kola.
-A kola with four cotyledons is known as “j udo na ngzi,” which translates as “kola of peace and blessing.” It is regular kola.
The number four is extremely sacred to the Igbo. Kola with five cotyledons is “jbara mmad, mm na kwma,” which represents increased procreation, protection, and good luck.
How To Pray With Kola Nut In Igbo Language :
Kola with six cotyledons represents communion with the ancestors, as in “j ndi mmo na ndi mmad jiri gbaa nd.” The smallest part, or cotyledon, is thrown away for the ancestors to eat. Similarly, kola with one cotyledon is not eaten by man, which means it is not broken during rituals since it belongs to the ancestors, a mindset evocative of Igboland’s direct bond between the living and the dead.
Kola with seven cotyledons is a good omen, representing prosperity. It is, however, rarely seen or broken.
However, as children of peace and development, we shall use the kolanut with 4cotyledons to pray to heavenly spirits for peace and progress in our business and doings right now.
