Artist/ Title: Morena - Eredo

Written and produced by Morena Motikoe at Morena More Noize Studios

This song is dedicated to Eredo the lost ancient city in Nigeria. It is believed that Eredo was a means of unifying an area of diverse communities into a single kingdom. Legends of the contemporary Ijebu clan link Eredo to a fabled wealthy and childless widow named Bilikisu Sungbo. In addition to this, her grave is believed to be located in Oke-Eiri, a town in a Muslim area just north of Eredo. Pilgrims of Christian, Muslim and traditional African religions annually trek to this holy site in tribute to her.

Some have connected Bilikisu Sungbo with the legend of the Queen of Sheba, a figure who is mentioned in both the Bible and Quran. In the Hebrew Bible, she is described as having sent a caravan of gold, ivory and other goods from her kingdom to Solomon. In the Quran she is an Ethiopian sun-worshiper involved in the incense trade who converts to Islam, commentators added that her name was "Bilqis".
