Ibi orí da ni sí l’àágbé mò n s’opé

Orí dá wa ní Yorùbá e yò sèsè

Jéjé ni mo n bò wá s’ílé ayé

wàrà nwéré mo ba ara mi nínú àsà àt’ìse to péye

A dé ayé a ba ara wa nílè omo Òoduà atèwòròn

Yorùbá ni mí mo lè yagàn Ogbón nbè èníyàn wà. – Dèhìndé Ìdòwú

Calligraphy Divider

Where one is destined to be is where one stays

We are destined to be Yorùbá, please rejoice

I was simply coming to the world

And the Yorùbás beckoned me to come over

Swiftly I found myself in a rich culture and tradition

We came to the world and found ourselves in the land of Odùduwà

We were glorifying and blessing our beings, our destinies

We bless the creator for not sending us to another land

It is joyful to me that Yorùbá cannot be underestimated

I am Yorùbá and I can be proud of it Wisdom and people abound.
