Expression USED Very frequently BY Everyone

Orí refers to the head/leader of the human body as well as a spiritual connection to one's destiny. When someone calls another person olórí ire that means that the person has certain belevolent forces going about with him/her, however when we call someone olórí burúkú, we mean that person is being controlled by malevolent forces thus allowing the person to live a bad life.
