Here at Zen by Zen we love to learn about the different languages and dialects of Africa and we thought it would be cool to share some insights with you 🙂 If you follow our Instagram page you will be familiar this as we usually put our language insights in the caption of our doormat pictures.
The Yorùbá language is one very close to our hearts
The term ‘Kaabo’ in Yorùbá language is used in a variety of ways. Yorùbá is a language spoken in West Africa and most prominently in south western Nigeria. The number of speakers of Yoruba is estimated between 30 and 40 million. It is a pluricentric language spoken principally in Nigeria and Benin, with communities around the world! 🌍
Yoruba is most closely related to the Itsekiri language (spoken in the Niger Delta) and to Igala (spoken in central Nigeria). Zen by Zen say kaabọ with our chest 😊
