Well, I'm not Yoruba so I might be wrong. But I heard my mom referring to catfish as obokun. And if I'm not mistaken, ojiji in Yoruba is shadow

You are all wrong. Obokun is called silver catfish and tilapia is called 'epiya' in yoruba

You are probably right.

Obukun is cat fish but ojiji is electric fish, I think.
