Taking the sentence literally, it means you ain't well, but mainly used to tell people that they ain't serous. In a sentence it could be bobo yi oo gbadun i.e. this guy ain't serious.

Ja won si jo means please inform them or plaese let them now

igi gedu = Gedu tree/lumber/timber. Gedu, like Iroko, is a family of trees. Possibly same is referred to as gedu nohor.

Hi folks, I hope you all had a smashing Xmas and are now looking forward to a more smashing New Year Celebration,

please, what does "dobale" mean?

The context here is an article in 234next, where it is mentioned. Could it be some fun exchange or talks in a bar?

Love to you all

dobale in yoruba means to prostrate, which is an act of respect when a male is greeting one who much older than him (or a king). Females are expected to kneel down.
