There are two popular Yorùbá myth of origin. There is the tale of Obatala and Oduduwa in the tussle to create the earth - commonly referred to as the myth of creation. And there is the other tale involving a great migration from “mecca” to Ile Ifè. Through a scaled down recreation experiment, this study examined the possibility that the Yorùbá migration myth is in fact a plausible explanation for the establishment of the Yorùbá in their present location.
