Mo ni fe = I love you

Is it ok to use "mo ni fe" at the end of a telephone conversation to your brothers and sisters or is there is another way to address your brothers and sisters

For example in French

I say tu (meaning you) when I am speaking to my friends and family
I say vous (meaning you) when speaking to an older person, teachers, boss etc (formal and out of respect)

I am asking because I always say "I love you" at the end of my conversations. I'll like to say it in Yoruba but I don't want to come off "awkward"

Thanks
