The traditional Yoruba week has four days dedicated to the Orisa in the following order:
- Day 1 is dedicated to Obatala
- Day 2 is dedicated to Orunmila
- Day 3 is dedicated to Ogun
- Day 4 is dedicated to Sango
However, to be streamlined with the Gregorian calendar, Yoruba people also have a 7 day week which is for trade and business matters
The seven Yoruba business days of the week are:
- Ojo-Aiku (Sunday),
- Ojo-Aje (Monday),
- Ojo-Ishegun (Tuesday),
- Ojo-Riru (Wednesday),
- Ojo-Bo (Thursday),
- Ojo-Eti (Friday)
- Ojo-Abameta (Saturday).

Ojo Aje (Monday): This is the day on which money joined Orisa on earth and is known as the day of money. Yoruba people use this day to start business, and to discuss economic and financial programs.
