YORUBA: LANGUAGE OF THE KEEN

YORUBA: LANGUAGE OF THE KEEN

– So Electrifying that you Have to Flaunt it

YORUBA: Ògìdán k’ò ní s’onídìrí, k’ájá lọ s’íbẹ̀ lọ d’irun.

ENGLISH TRANSLATION BY DELE AJAJA: Dog won’t go to leopard’s booth for hairdressing.

CLARIFICATIONS: Some issues are beyond some people. This is a cautionary apothegm for those who confront those who are beyond their influence.

IMAGE: A carving by the late Pa Ọlọ́wẹ̀ of Ise-Ekiti, headquarters of Ise-Orun Local Government Area of Ekiti State, Nigeria.
