Ife Oodaye ibi ti oju ti n mo wa. Ife Oodaye in Yoruba means the expansive space where the world was created. This is the name of the town where all the Irunmole settled when they came to earth. Oodudua was tasked to create this land with the help of a five toed fowl which disperse and expanded sand/soil over the water which formed a portion of the earth crust/land while the surface of the water that was not covered by the soil remain as the water body such as the ocean. Thus Oodaye can simply be translated as Creation.
