The history of the Sàlámì family

By combining the spiritual mission of his ancestors on both sides, Bàbá King was born to be a healer and a priest. It was known that he inherited a part of this spiritual influence from his ancestors, and because of this, he started to accompany his parents, uncles, and aunts as a child and got to experience the Òrìṣà philosophy early on.

His predestined mission was to become a priest and a healer, and he was also permitted to do things that others would not do. His Western education enabled him to spread the Òrìṣà philosophy on the academic level as well. This is the origin of his spiritual mission: to continue what his ancestors had started.

He has also received spiritual recognition in Abéòkúta, where he was named Bàbá Ẹgbẹ́ of all the bàbáláwo in Abéòkúta and Bàbá Ẹgbẹ́ of all Òrìṣà devotees, priests, and priestesses.

His children have the mission to heal as well, and this is why they have all been encouraged to study medicine. Even though not everyone will become a priest, they still can fulfil the part of the Sàlámì mission, which is to heal either spiritually or by means of any other sort of therapy.
