On December 31, 2017 the priests of the Yoruba Cultural Association of Cuba (ACYC) met at the organization’s headquarters to approve the Prophecy of the Year (call in Spanish “Letra del Año”) with which the opening ceremony of the Year 2018 is held. The ceremony was presided over by Ifa Lucas Abellasturis, who is Awo Ogbeyono, and with the support of the Ifa of all the families of Cuba and their descendants in the World. The lyrics are addressed to the priests of Ifá, to the Oriaté, Babaloshas, Iyaloshas and Iworos brothers and to the religious people in general.
