HARD-WORK

– Guidance for the youth.

© Dele Ajaja

YORUBA: Tí àfẹ́’s’ọ́nà ọ̀lẹ bá dàgbà, olówó ni o gbée n’íyàwó.

ENGLISH TRANSLATION BY DELE AJAJA: When the sweetheart of an idle youth grows up, It is a hardworking (wealthy) man who would marry her.

CLARIFICATIONS: When the indolent youth grows up, he won’t be in a position to maintain a family. Consequently, his girlfriend would be betrothed to a hardworking man, who is capable of maintaining a home.
