About The Name

Oríkì is a form of praise poetry, created and practised within Yoruba tradition (Nigeria, West Africa). Oríkì is often recited and sung as a way to uplift both the individual and their family or ancestry. This perfectly captures the values undergirding Oriki Collective. Words are tools with which we build; build confidence and self-worth, build narratives that captivate, and build pathways to pursue social and cultural change.
