Yoruba Word Of The Week : Adùn


Adùn is the yoruba word for sweetness or something sweet. When saying the word, I can't help but savor it, the very word sounds sweet. Adùn brings to mind everything sweet, everything that makes life sweet, from delicious food to the delicious moments we send with the ones we love; adùn reminds me of past experiences, yummy ones we can never forget but secretly recall to relive the ecstatic moment; adùn is sweet to say, tasty to the lips and pleasant to the mind. May whatever constitutes an adùn in your life never become bitter in Jesus' name. Amen.

Stay blessed and funky always!
