Explication: "Ní asán"; this means "In vain"

Lásán nowadays could mean "only" E.g. Ogún naira lásán (Twenty naira only)
Some people wrongly use it as a word of emphasis when mixing Yòrùbá and English, E.g. If I hammer lásán... (Once I make big money...)
Lásán-Lásán is phrase of emphasis which still means the same thing as lásán

I hope I've answered your question
