Oloye Oriyomi.Oloye Orawale Oranfe and Ja Jah Oga Onilu were all members of Mau Mau School of Drums  where  they met at Bazilon Street, East Dry Rive,Port of Spain where they held  drum rehearsals.The  convening  site was then known as OBATALA IN THE RAW. Little the   did Njie Oriyomi Doyle dream that he  would  be Ojise Obatala Edena Ile Ife.

From these humble beginnings,Ojise Obatala then became initiated at Egbe Onisin Eledumare and went to Alkebu-lan –ILE IFE, where he was initiated in full into Obatala community  and received the title OJISE OBATALA EDENA ILE IFE.

Oloye Oriyomi is one of the  few active and participating  Chiefs of  The Council of Traditional Afrikan Chiefs of Trinidad & Tobago led by Oloye Orawale Oranfe Ife.
