It would have been nice if u had translated it, for those of us who don't understand yoruba. I love Asa regardless.

Wow, translated it? Not sure I understand all of it myself will take a stab though.

The dove

Eye adaba ti fo lokeloke loke ode orun
The dove that flies high near heaven

Wa ba le mi o o...Ojumo ti mo mo ri re o

Aw, this was a really nice post. In thought I want to put in writing like this moreover – taking time and precise effort to make a very good article… however what can I say… I procrastinate alot and under no circumstances appear to get one thing done. online casino slots
