THE PLEASANTNESS OF YORUBA LANGUAGE

THE PLEASANTNESS OF YORUBA LANGUAGE

– As sweet as Honey

YORUBA: Ẹni máa d’áṣọ fún ni, èyí t’ó wọ̀ s’ọ́rùn la ńwò.

ENGLISH TRANSLATION BY DELE AJAJA: The one who who would clothe others, we look at what he/she wears.

CLARIFICATIONS: When someone promises to do something, we think about the promises he/she kept previously. Politicians, for instance, make a lot of promises during elections, but perceptive people vote for those who kept the promises they made in the past.

IMAGE: The late Chief Adebayo Faleti, celebrated broadcaster, actor, playwright, film producer, stage director, and statesman.
