Ade la kun

remi-redo, that is.

The crown divide the yoke.

The crown snaps the rope.

Being crowned beats gluttony.

The crown surpasses stomach-infrastructure.



Youth, seek the perfect future of your dreams.

Do not allow the quest for crown by the politicians fall you for a morsel of food for the stomach.

Be careful, many are gone.

Help me translate dis bro "Ajegun ni igunugun(vulture) njebo"

whats up Bosville?

let me say it this way:

"ajegun nigun njebo...
Ajegun ni akalamagbo njoku ona."

"The vulture consume sacrificial carcass as inherent veto-right."
the Hornbill consume obligatorily any carcass found by the wayside.

this is an example of Ogede (beauty-tongue) used by the Yoruba.

It is said as an incantation to decree your deed as unquestionable,

a spiritual seal.

But the same can be broken by another person who can make it void.

the opponent will tell you, Eewo! and thereafter give his own version

to negate the decree.

Adelakun

The name is descriptive as any other name in Yoruba lexicon. The name is associated with kingly lineage and it is referring to a peculiar son born into that lineage. He is bequeathed become a memberto the crown's family's lineage. Although the meaning can be translated in different ways though it can be broken down as:

Ade: Crown,that which covers, we arrived

La: go forth,breakforth,shine,light,successful

Kun:to become a member, salutation, strength,power,full,filled,addition

Adelakun

The crown goes forth with value and strength; the name is just referring to a child who is believed to be a prospective powerful being.

Adelakun - simply means we add to the crown. Shikena.
Re: The Meaning Of Adelakun by nlPoster: 12:32pm On Nov 15, 2019
It could also refer to the crown full of freedom, although we add to the crown is the most likely meaning.

I don't want to contest the purported meaning of the name through your opinion though you have a point to your interpretation. However, I have a patrilineal cousin who bears the name. And the name which prefix with Ade are basically of kingly lineage name from inception.

It is important to understand that the perspective of my understanding the name as being veered from ‘addition to crown' is that this doesn't make a sense if one considered the purpose of name bearing amongst the Yoruba's which is different from many other ethnicity. Names amongst Yorubas in the ancient times are borne according to status in the society even if a child is born mysteriously. And there are names borne among the general Yoruba community while some names are restricted among the noble or Kings family's descendants. For instance, there are people who don't bear or use ‘oba' as a prefix or suffix for their names, despite the fact that in such panegyric ‘oba' is part of it . So , Kùn cannot be seen as addition because, Ade o la o Kùn/Ade la kùn( ta kun ta kun) is what became contracted to Àdèlákùn,which does make more sense with such name as being given to show that there is strength in having kingly lineage.
Re: The Meaning Of Adelakun by nlPoster: 1:09am On Nov 16, 2019
^ it does sound complex so one has to go with the generally implied meaning unless there are indications to the contrary. Your version is possibly close.

Kun could also mean paint, as in we painted the crown or painting of the crown. Or an undertone.

There are other form of this word and it different meaning,which make the Yoruba lexicons as being patterned in the like of English language etc. Thus,here are other meaning to this word with diacritics which determine it function.

Kun √ : growth or full to brim
Kun √ : hum
Kun √ : to aid
Kun √ : murmur

Prefix of Ade can be *crown*or *we came*. Depends on pronounciation. Now, Ade ‘la’ kun is the name. I think the “la” is the confusion here. La in some dialects is Ni in others. Kun is generally to connote that there are many or there is an addition. Just like “Kunle”. Adelakun in this context means Crown has an addition ie a new family member.

Awesome input though K‘un'le is not ‘addition' in this regard but ‘full', ‘filled up' or ‘plenteous'. ‘La' is a stand alone in Yoruba lexicon because it is a foundational word in Yoruba language. La has to do with everything that goes into creation and all successful things or movement to another direction. So, Yoruba traditional or older dialects are more standard or robust than Oyo and her other related spoken modern dialects that can be found. Thus, ‘Ni' can stand for ‘li' as far as I have understood Yoruba language. Even if you claim that ‘La' can stand for ‘Ni' which I am looking forward to learn the group or clan among the Yoruba that used such word.


It is a known truth that Yoruba language is a continuum and do develop alongside contact with new group speakers which could make Yoruba language have dual spoken language i.e indigenous and loaned lexicons. This can easily be interchangeable within the speakers community. The beauty of yoruba language is that the Yoruba language developed through thousands of years via ifaodu oral memorising after the loss and death of the ancient Yoruba ancestors who mastered writing form that were seen as occultic means in the ancient times . So,it is new if one switch from one owns major language or dialect with the input with a loaned secondary language which are evident through contact with non speakers of Yoruba language. This is reason Yoruba could be spoken with input with newer contact though Ifaodu is Yoruba's teachers language,which survived thousands of years.

Ni a o Kun, or La o kun is the same. Kun in this context can be filled up, addition or plenteous. My dialect uses Ni instead of La. I am Awori. Some even use Le.

Wow ! This is quite interesting if one consider the pattern of spoken dialects of Yoruba people. However, If you are a good speaker of your dialect, then you should be able to explain the different form of ‘ la' in awori that you are familiar with. Though I am familiar with the fact that ‘la' means go forth in awori dialect which mean is just a form of lo in some other Yoruba dialects. So, this word ‘la' has many thing that has to be success, light or thrust forth in Yoruba language.

La okun in the sense of Moses parting the sea isn't a likely meaning of the name although it's a possible one. That would give it a religious connotation, not a cultural context.
Re: The Meaning Of Adelakun by Olu317(m): 6:42pm On Nov 16, 2019
Ose is a river's in Yoruba land and Mu ose/ Muse is an ancient name amongst the Yoruba people which was and is still associated to water. Interestingly, the name actually fall within both the Yoruba and the definition adduced to the meaning from the classic Semitic language, which its meaning is ‘drawn from water'. So, it is not surprising that many ancient names are lost in Yoruba lexicons just as the modern day Yoruba people have demonized Yeshua/Esu through condemnation by Yoruba Christians. Infact, Yoruba did bore name associated to Ora either as prefixed or suffice in the past but not anymore in modern day Yoruba Land.

This is reason I am confident about the

Do you mean Jesu.



For the topic being discussed, Moses would not translate exactly as Moses in Yoruba language, I think the meaning of the name is what would be in Yoruba.


Even though the Yoruba expression for water is Omi, but that doesnt mean it's not an adopted word, just saying.
Re: The Meaning Of Adelakun by Olu317(m): 12:04pm On Nov 17, 2019
Interestingly, the Hebrew's pictographs pointed to the name as ‘Yeshua' in its full dimensional angle despite the fact that this root and its derivatives occur 353 times in the Old Testament. ‘HAW Theological Wordbook of the Old Testament notes that deliverance indicates a movement from distress to safety, and generally must come from some somewhere outside the party oppressed'. As far as the meaning of the name is concerned, it is associated with a personality who protect,who delivers people of infirmities, one who fight a just cause for people, one who's the entrance or guard of heaven that allow access to heaven through consultation with God the ‘savior,'/salvation of mankind .This name is bore by a human agent who is the act of delivering people from any kind of earthly oppression, to God and man's deliverance from evil.

The feminine noun ישועה (yeshua), which the meaning is salvation (Genesis 49:18, 2 Samuel 10:11). This name is known as Yeshua Adamo Orisa, whose identity became contracted to Esu whose duty is the same as the ancient Hebrew. But today, that set of Bishop Ajai Crowther demonized Esu and claimed Jesu in Yoruba language as the name of this personality. As I read through some information, I discovered that the difference between these two identity amongst the 18th century by English Yoruba Christians orientation's submition is that of ‘J',which is actually false these people have no knowledge of Yoruba ancestors mode of worship. In fact, it is easy for Yoruba christians to call God as Eleda, Elemi, oyigiyigi,Eleri ipin, Eledumare,Aterere etc which is the name given to traditional creator of mankind known as ‘Ela' both in Yoruba and Hebrews ‘Ella', and these Yoruba Christians claimed in 18th century that Yoruba worship wrong God because of shebo( do ritual) which is also did in the same Bible we have knowledge on .
My question is, Who is ignorant of some form of the truth? Today, Eshu is demonized by many Yoruba Christians yet Yoruba people haven't been shortchanged for being the group witj the highest twin birth. And behind these twin birth,their panegyric still stand forever while Eshu is their protection against all form evil. This is the beauty of Yoruba people and tradition.
