Yoruba Word Of The Week : Ololufe


Ololufe is the Yoruba word for lover.

Ololufe is such a sweet word and I especially love savoring it in the Yoruba language.

Whomever the Ololufe is God has given you,  in whatever color or form they may be, may your love for each other and joy never run dry.

Keep them close, appreciate them, thank God for them, stay content...

Jesus is my the very first Ololufe of my life and He will always be, by His grace.

The noun is : Ololufe and a simple sentence is : Mo ni fe ololufe mi (I love my lover).

Hold on to your Ololufe
