Yoruba Word Of The Week : Ariya


Ariya is the Yoruba word for fun.

We all love and enjoy ariya. There are a number of ways to have ariya. It comes in different forms and is manifested in different ways.
It is also good to know that ariya is subjective so what might be ariya to you might not be for someone else.
However, whatever we consider ariya, we should rememeber that wisdom is the principal thing [Proverbs 4 :7].

The noun is : Ariya and a simple sentence : "Ariya se ara lore" (Fun is good for the body).

May God continue to give us wisdom to have the right kind of ariya.
