(Black Magic - Real-Life Nigerian Movies) A single tree grows in the dark and crooked passages behind the wooden stalls of Ajegunle market; its leaves are full and green but the crowds avoid this place - out of fear and respect for the Shrine at the bottom of the tree.
"I am the one that worships the Ogun, and anyone that comes - I help them to worship as well," explains the Iyalaje Alagbo, or priestess of the Ogun shrine.
Appropriately she holds a small cat - often a strong superstition in the world of juju (or, what is commonly called black magic).

Ogun is the Yoruba deity of metal work, represented as a mighty and powerful god but also a destructive force that must be appeased to ensure his rage does not turn against the community.
To worship Ogun, the Iyalaje explains one of her rituals:
"We use Mariwo to worship Ogun. We tie the Mariwo round Ogun, then we get Kola ut that has four eyes with palm and wine and palm oil. Then we get cock and use the blood to worship Ogun."
Sometimes even popcorn and burnt yam can be used.
"Anyone that wants to travel will come to worship the Ogun," explains the Iyalaje. "Because of accident so the person will have a safe journey."
BattaBox then presented 2000 Naira to the Iyalaje and Shrine for allowing us to film, and the juju priestess then gave a Eulogy:
"I greet all the ancestors of the world; I greet all the fathers of the world; i greet the Ogun which we worshihp in Iyalaje Ajegunle market."
