21 Savage and many Atlantans practice African "Ifa" religion
 

 
21 Savage allegedly practices an African religion called "Ifa." I'm hearing alotta people in the A started "practicing" it within the last year or 2. There's nothing wrong with a genuine interest in trying to connect with your roots, but people talkin like folks up there just claimin the sh*t to be "cool" and "trendy" because everybody else doin it. If that's the case, then image

What's good with this ATL? When this happen? When the Dashiki trend hit?

The Yoruba culture and language transcends the South-West border of Nigeria.
Black Brazilians who are descendants of slaves from the South-West region in Nigeria still speak Yoruba till today. In Cuba and other Caribbean island nations, Sango and other Yoruba traditional gods are worshipped.
In Atlanta in the United States of America, a lot of black Americans are Ifa worshippers and that includes the newest and hottest rapper on the block 21 Savage.

Born Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, the 24-year-old trapper is an Ifa worshipper. "I always said that (I’m here for a reason), even when I was in the hospital, I used to say that… I’m spiritual, I’m Ifá, my religion is Ifá… It’s a Nigerian religion" he told the crew of The Breakfast Club in August as he spoke about being shot six times in 2013.
In November 2016, 21 Savage featured on the cover of The Fader Magazine and he further spoke about the Ifa religion which his mother also practices.
"I’m African-American. I’d rather follow an African religion. That’s my heritage" he told The Fader. 21 Savage also said that everyone around him when he was growing up in Atlanta practised the religion.

As 21 Savage navigates between the violent streets and the glittering avenue of fame, he consults his Ifa chief regularly in order to stay away from trouble and people trying to gun him down.
The rapper also wears Ifa beads for protection. "[They] protect me from negativity, harm, anything that’s gonna disrupt anything that I got going on."

21 Savage is nigerian, a lot of n*ggas from Atlanta from Nigeria (sonny digital and southside are nigerian too), this religion is native to Yoruba people which is a tribe in nigeria, so it makes sense.

Underrated post, but I don't knock people who who do. If that helps you get through your day and problems you have, by all means do you. But for me Jesus & the Bible is one of the biggest problem/handicap in the black community.

What gets me about our community is that they seem to really believe some person/entity/being (Jesus) who supposedly loves all his children is gonna come save the day for us after having us suffer the worst of all races for centuries for something we did at the beginning of time. FOH with that dumbass story. Not to mention why should people even believe or trust in the Bible when is was given to us by our slave masters. The same slave masters who forced us have s*x with our mother, sisters, cousins, fed us sh*t, whipped k*lled us for looking looking at them the wrong way. I'm not trusting a book given to me by my slave master that some guy is gonna save us.


But but but but you must believe and have faith

That believing and having faith hasn't done sh*t to correct any off the injustices that have been levied against us.
Powerful post. They won't hear you though. But I'll say this though, they have perverted the original Christianity. Removed many key texts from the Bible and many translastions are different. If they wanna do that then I'm good on it. Only thing I believe in is universal law and karma.

I think more folks should explore and study other religion instead of worshiping Jesus or accepting a religion because their parents practice it

ehh idk I think its natural for humans to believe in something whether that something be themselves or something greater than themselves or believing in nothing at all, I do agree that organized Religion(s) tend to target and cater to a certain kind of person though.

Nigerians can't spot out other Nigerians? Sorry if this seems offensive.
