The history of the Sàlámì family

By combining the spiritual mission of his ancestors from both sides Bàbá King was born to be a healer, a priest. They knew he inherited a part of this spiritual influence from his ancestors and because of this, right from his childhood on he started to accompany his parents, his uncles, his aunts to experience the Orisha philosophy.

In his predestination was a mission to be a priest, a healer, an admission to do things that others would not do. And with his Western education he managed to spread the Orisha philosophy also on the academic level. This is the origin of his spiritual mission to put the continuity to what his ancestors had allready started.

He has his spiritual recognition in Abéòkúta, where he was named Bàbá Ẹgbẹ́ of all the Bàbáláwos in Abéòkúta and Bàbá Ẹgbẹ́ of all Orisha devotees, priests and priestesses.

His children also have the mission to heal, this is why they are all encouraged to study medicine. Because everyone will not be priests, but they still can fulfill the part of this Sàlámì mission, which is to heal either spiritually or by any other sort of therapy.
