Agogo mefa aaro koja iseju merinla = fourteen minutes past six o'clock in the morning i.e. 6:14am

agogo = o'clock (or bell in some uses)
mefa = Six (6)
aaro = morning
koja = past
iseju = minute(s)
merinla = fourteen (14)

Condom in Yoruba is Agbejofaaji ( Agbe ojo faaji)
lit trans: collector for (or shelter from) the 'rain' of bliss
