Since there are many requests about Korofo (usually abbreviated to Krf, Kf etc. by lazy and secretive assmen), let’s see what or who this mysterious entity is and what Korofo’s meaning in NBM aka Black Axe is.
Who could answer this better than one of the founders of NBM, Nicholas Idemudia aka Ibn Godidi de Saddest? Here is his explanation:
Korofo 1 – Ibn Godidi de Saddest
As previously mentioned the
Neo-Black Movement was an
amalgamation of various interest
groups of which the African
traditional religions group was one.
This sub-group had been charged
to start their research into African
Aye ! Kura a staunch Trado-Religious
Axe-Man, very knowledgeable in
Yoruba incantations and religion produced
a number of incantations for use in our
publications one of which became
very popular, and I produce it below.
KOROFO, THE CULT OF THE
UNDERGROUND IS THE ONE
WHICH CONSULTED THE ORACLE
ABOUT BLACK AXE AND DECLARED
THAT IT´S DEATH WOULD
NEVER BE HELD OF.
This term underground cult was a
direct translation from the yoruba AJA ILE.
Korofo the cult of the underground
was aparently a school of devination.
However the actual incantation from
GOD IN YORUBA BELIEF
by E. BOLAYE IDOWU A&B BOOKS
PUBLISHER, NEW YORK 1994,
refers to the consultations of
the oracle by KOROFO on behalf
of OLODUMARE who declared
that the death of OLODUMARE
WOULD NEVER BE HEARD OF.
We simply appriopriated the incantations
substituting the name BLACK AXE for
OLODUMARE . Olodumare is GOD in
Yoruba language so KOROFO IS NOT
GOD. Korofo is simply the one or group
who consulted the oracle.
It is useful to make this clarifications
because Africa and the BLACK MAN
need the help of GOD or the Supreme
Deity, weather that deity is called
OLODUMARE, OSANOBUA or
OSANOBUWA, CHUKWU or ALAH.
The confusion about the role of
Korofo came about around 1981/1982
when the last of the founding fathers
graduated. About the time of the
Headship of IBN YASHIN the great
NOT KNOWING WHAT TO DO
WITH SOME OF THE VERY SERIOUS
BUT STRANGE IDEAS THEY INHERITED
BUT DID NOT QUITE UNDERSTAND
THEY INTERPRETED KOROFO AS
GOD. As it was under this Head that
the Neo-Black Movement started
spraeding, this eroneous idea was carried
far and wide and is now ingrained
in the mind of most.
Perhaps I should also quickly point
out that we did on rare occassions refer
to our organisation as the UNDERGROUND
CULT courtesy of this
There is definately always a place
for KOROFO in NBM folklore because
verily it was he or they in this case
who on consulting, that the ORACLE
DECLARED that THE DEATH OF
THE BLACK AXE (NBM) WOULD
NEVER BE HEARD OF,
And so it has been till this day.
And so it has been till this day indeed. “Korofo” always seems to have been used in a rather random way and was confusing to the cultists themselves. The whole matter is as random and confused as the rest of their so-called Orientation. Nowadays, the initiation oath is still sworn using Korofo (briefly: may Korofo squeeze life out of you if you ever betray the “movement”).
And even more frequently, Korofo is called upon when a rabid assman issues death threats, which happens quite often….
