THIS IS AN EXCELENT COVERAGE OF YORUBA RELIGION AND LANGUAGE IN ITS MODERN CONTEXT. IT DEALS WITH THE PROBLEM OF YORUBA LANGUAGE DYING THROUGH DAILY MIXING WITH ENGLISH. IT DEALS WITH IFA AND OTHER RELIGIOUS TOPICS. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR STUDYING HOW YORUBA CULTURE IS SURVIVING IN THE 21ST CENTURY!
