This site is dedicated to Mrs Esther Olawoyin Taylor.

Mrs. Esther Olawoyin Taylor (Maami):
Mama Esther Olawoyin Taylor fondly called Maami was born in Ile-Oluji, Ondo State on March 14th, 1926 into the family of the Ogunribido’s. Her parents were Chief Logbosere Ogunribido of Ile-Oluji and Late Madam Eunice Omopelade (Nee Akinrelere), the Iya Egbe of Christ Apostolic Church, Oke-Isegun, Temidire, Ile-Oluji.

She got married to Mr. Samuel Akintayo Taylor, a Forester of blessed memory. His job took them round the Old Western Region from Ile-Oluji, Ondo, Benin City, Ijebu Water Side, Ijebu-Ode and finally Ibadan. She was travelling with her husband for his postings and therefore was unable to continue her trading initially. While her husband was at Ijebu-Ode, before his transfer to Ibadan, she went ahead with Bolanle who was a baby then to supervise the building of her husband’s first house. Maami single handedly supervised the masons and other builders in building the house, a job she did judiciously and prudently without any problem with the site workers to her credit. Her husband had full confidence in her and lacked nothing of value. In 1960, her husband and the rest of the family finally moved to Ibadan and it was then she was able to start her trading in earnest.

She started with selling trinkets and was popularly called ‘Mama Onigolu’- mother of gold when she was selling jewelry to Nurses at Adeoyo General Hospital, Ibadan. She later became a big time textile merchant in different fabrics including lace, aso oke, guinea brocade, velvet and others at the then Old Gbagi and later moved to New Gbagi (Bola Ige International Market) when they were relocated. She became the official clothier to the late Jegun Odundun 1, Oba Adeseko till his death in 1986 thereby fulfilling the Biblical Scripture in Proverbs 22:29 “Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men”.

Maami had to her credit the training of many young women that she taught the art of trading and they are all experts in the business to the glory of God. She became a Volunteer Market Health Worker (Association of Reproductive Health Initiative) in the course of her business. She retired finally from active trading in 2013.

Christian Life
Maami was born an Anglican, and until her death was very commited to her church groups ‘Iwabi Olorun Kristi’ at St. Peters Church, Ile-Oluji and ‘Egbe Ore-Ofe’ at St. Anne’s Anglican Church, Molete, Ibadan. Her faith in Christ can be summed up in these two (2) songs she is very fond of singing;

Ore-ofe ohun adidun ni leti mi
Jesu ku fun araye, o ku fun mi pelu
Ore-ofe sa ni gbekele mi
Jesu ku fun araye, o ku funmi pelu


Feru re s’ afefe
Nireti ma foiya
Olorun gbo mi kanle re
Yio gbe ori re ga

Maami has an unwavering faith in God and it was that same faith that saw her through a lot of trials she had in life especially when her only son and her first child Ifedayo of blessed memory died in a tragic motor accident on 13th January, 1999. Maami was also blessed to be able to travel to Israel in 2011 and see the places she had read of so many times.

It is indeed very true that the
“The Lord maketh poor, and maketh rich:
He bringeth low, and lifteth up
He raiseth up the poor out of the dust and
Lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill,
To set them among princes and
To make them inherit the throne of glory:
For the pillars of the earth are the LORD’S and
He hath set the world upon them.
He will keep the feet of his saints, and
The wicked shall be silent in darkness;
For by strength shall no man prevail” (1 Samuel 2: 7- 9)
To God be the glory for sparing her life so that she could see her children and children’s children like Olive Plants round about her table.

Maami “Wo lani o omo Logbosere, Ogunrinbido, hulebi, onijini kasa eyun o de kunmoso. Omo niye nopo omo ayorobi. La do eghe, ikoya mori sogho nidi mi e ni yeghe. Ikoya moisogho noghon itun, mo gogho gho lo sulua, likaa po ghogho lo sogbo itun omo lisa ku poluyi.”

Maami “Majo leyin omo loson, Omo gbeleogun, Omo gbelesusi,
Omo guro luye lumon, Omo lunjiye fu ba ku, Omo wo a yen a yo, Abeke ojineyetu, A we meturo, Wo loni o, La gbeetan, O ri mikan sa lo e yu”

Sleep well Maami. We love you and will miss you dearly.

An amazing testimony on a spell caster who brought my wife back to me..
My name is Andy Sowers,i live in Australia,and I'm happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids.A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce.she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she didn't love me anymore.So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again.
So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife.So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.{}.
So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who didn't call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster.
So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same website {},if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to "bringing your ex back.
So thanks to the makolovespellcaster for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family once again.
Thanks...His WhatsApp number:+2347054263874.

I feel so blessed again in my marriage after Doctor Oku brought back my husband that separated with me for good 3 mounths. Am Jessica Butler by name from los angeles. Even though i have mouths all over my body, it won't be enough to thank Doctor Oku for his help upon my life. My husband separated with me for the 3 months and have been in pains and agony without him. So, i searched for help everywhere but nothing worked out not until i meant Doctor Oku who i contacted online. I explained my situation to him and he promised that my husband will get back to me within 24 to 48 hours as far that my heart still beats for him. I believed in him and he prepared a spell for me and my husband called me exactly when Doctor Oku said. He pleaded and said he needs me back and now we are living happily again for the past 9 months. Everyone out there reading my article that needs help should contact him... Email: or whatsApp him +2347053113465
