Decoding Yoruba, A New Series on Yoruba People and their Language


Announcing Decoding Yoruba! Our new series will explore Yoruba identity and the language through the eyes of young Yoruba professionals living in the Diaspora. We’d like to use this platform to teach you more about the language and the people that make up this incredible race.

In the first episode, student and model Babajide (Jide) Alao discusses his love of the Yoruba language; growing up Nigerian; and teaches us his favorite Yoruba proverb, “Ila o ni ju onire lo.” He also provides some critical advice to Yoruba learners.

If you have a question that you’d like to see answered in one of our future episodes, comment below! And don’t forget to share this video!
