Abstract:There are many Islamic influences in Dadak˙ÓdÓ, the most popular Yoruba oral poetic form of Ilorin, Nigeria. However, Dadak˙ÓdÓ still remains principally a black African cultural art, whose true origin can be traced through some of its performance techniques and through the history of Iwý, the Eg˙ng˙n (masquerade), from which it developed.
