Bro KHAMILEON, WHERE ART THOU? Your argument will make people run of their own believe.
My sweetest belle, I gotta know what you're studying before I send my introduction letter to your folks now ? :cool-smil Yu dis geeli, ah no sabi di tin wey I fit do yu now. :eyes
u've said it all
Na so dis ting don die be dat ?
What else do you want us to say about the issue,el general?Maybe i should move the thread to yoruba movies forum,abi?
Yoruba language is not dead anything in fact its a matter of time that yoruba language is goin to sweep the whole of Nigeria. I mean everybody speaks at least one word of yoruba. like: "anyways SHA" "ABI you no know?" "wetin dey SHELE" "you NKO" figure that out.
Was just being curious mein-ubermoderator. Feel free to lock it if you want.
No,there is no need to lock it.The discussion can resume and continue for all i care.
To promote yoruba among the new young yoruba generations(teenagers),producing comicbooks in yoruba featuring cool yoruba superheroes they can really relate to is a good way to go.What do you guys think?
Brilliant idea! Wish I know how to create cartoons.
I actually had such an idea a while ago, with ideas for stories etc. However, I'd need a graphic artist/illustrator since I'm not good with drawing.
There are lots of great artists in naija.You don't have to know how to draw,you just operate on the organizational level.I am seriously thinking of writing a story based on a group of yoruba guys who decide to do this project in naija.It is a concept worth looking at very seriously.
What are you doing here ? Haven't you got any owambe party to attend to ? Abi yu no wan spray all dese fuji musicians wit ya dolapo ?
Dem boku for naija now,el general.
Let's know how it goes. I've still gotta sort out my own stuff, then see about the format, artistes etc.
I sabi, but I'd want to run an international operation with simultaneous publishing in the UK for the EU Region, and the USA for the Americas. Well, let me stop flying before I've learnt to take one baby step.
Why has no one thought of this in naija,by the way?Or have they?I find it inconcievable that nobody has tried to venture into this area given the earning potential.Apart from the monetary gains,yoruba needs some sort of mordern lierature to boost it among yorubas.
BTW,is ATOKA back on?It was very popular back in the days.
Abacha, how did you know about owambe's party for today? I just returned from a wedding...I refused to spray money...one funny thing happened....
At the registry, after solemnisation...went into the car and was waiting on driver who was attending to some folks......na so one man dey run after a girl of about 25yrs, na so the girl said "ori mi de n wu bi e se n praise mi"...she gave the man some naira notes...na so the pereseke man turned around and saw me in the car...come see show. The man jumped up and said "ah te mi ti da loni..." I couldn't help but burst out in laughter....quickly gave him some dough..asked him to leave me alone before others join him.
I had fun, have been attending functions....Naija is fun!
Not that I know of. However, the Yoruba language newspaper "Alaroye", is very popular across Yorubaland, and has very good cartoon strips in it. Very nicely drawn figures, and good Yoruba language dialogue.
Now, I don't know if you're aware or not, but there used to be a set of Yoruba language comic books published when I was a kid, it dealt with supernatural themes - witches, etc- it also had an English language version.It was titled "Aye Akamara", the English version being "This Odd World", and we used to read both versions in those days.
