A History of the Yoruba People [Hardcover] By Stephen Adebanji Akintoye
A History of the Yoruba People is a comprehensive exploration of the founding and growth of one of the most influential groups in Africa. With a population of nearly 40 million spread across Western Africa - and diaspora communities in Europe, the Caribbean, Latin America, and North America - Yoruba are one of the most researched groups emanating from Africa. Yet, to date, very few have grappled fully with the historical foundations and development of this group which has contributed to shaping the way African communities are analyzed from prehistoric to modern times. This commendable book deploys four decades of historiography research with current interpretations and analyses to present the most complete and authoritative volume to date. This exceptionally lucid account gathers and imparts a wealth of research and discourses on Yoruba studies for a wider group of readership than ever before.

YORUBA DUN UN SO Book 1
The aim of the textbook is to get students talking in Yoruba. Every lesson in the book is based on dialogues, and the book is NOT a reader but a vehicle to stimulate learners to speak. It has a three-fold function. It gives the teacher an outline for each lesson, which he/she will present orally in class. The book is intended to be used mainly after the class to consolidate and clarify what has been done orally in class, to provide supplementary material and to give the oral lessons a visual complement.
The textbook is useful for a learner who needs some basic exposure to spoken Yoruba. There are lots of mechanical patterned drills that will help learners to master a particular grammar point. The dialogues are usually out of context and not based on any real-life situations. The text is good for learning simple grammatical expressions but not for culturally appropriate expressions. The lessons are not based on any one theme. It is very difficult to navigate through the book because the table of content does not indicate what the content of the book is. There is no index to help learners find the grammar points that are presented in the book. No activity to help learners relate what they have learned to their personal lives. Drills are good for learning basic vocabulary.

The Novel of D.O Fagunwa - A commentary by Ayo Bamgbose

In 1938, a school teacher, David O. Fagunwa came out with a book entitled Ogboju Ode Ninu Igbo Irunmale. In part because of its novelty, in part because of the richness of language, in part because it treated familiar themes and because it relied heavily on folklores with which people were familiar, Ogboju Ode was an instant success.

Fagunwa’s first novel, Ogboju Ode Ninu Igbo Irunmale (1938; The Forest of a Thousand Daemons), was the first full-length novel published in the Yoruba language. Fagunwa’s works characteristically take the form of loosely constructed picaresque fairy tales containing many folklore elements: spirits, monsters, gods, magic, and witchcraft.
Also because of their classical nature, richness and because of the prolificity of its author, Fagunwa's books (he wrote four others after Ogboju Ode) became so prodigious that they, for a long time, seemed to overshadow other writings in the same genre. Indeed, it is only recently that many, outside the circle of the educated Yorubas, are beginning to realize that there were indeed some other literary works of note before and during Fagunwa's ‘reign'. Such was the intensity of leverage the Fagunwa's works wielded.

The books, in order of publication are:

What a rare collections!

Besides assembling Yoruba folklores and weaving them together to form a composite narrative, Fagunwa, in each of his works, preaches ‘high morals' from Yoruba cultural perspective as well as Christian ethos. The five works essentially deal with Yoruba traditional society. The first two works centre on how life was lived in pre-colonial Yoruba society. His latter works also consider the traditional society. But this time taking cognizance of the fact that real social and political power has shifted from Obas or traditional chiefs to the colonialists. The Fagunwa phenomenon thus represented the third landmark in the evolution of Yoruba literature.


“Because of its popularity, because of its depth and because of its uniqueness, D.O. Fagunwa's writing is often regarded by many as the pioneer of Yoruba literature - especially the novels.”

ESSENTIALS OF YORUBA GRAMMAR By Oladele Awobuluyi
n important respects, this book represents an independent approach to Yoruba grammar. It attempts to present the Yoruba language as it really is, rather than as seen largely from the perspective of other languages. The grammatical structure of the language is thus presented in a new way. The major parts of speech of the language are, for the first time, established uniformly on the criteria of function alone. A chapter is devoted to a systematic and novel treatment of each such part of speech, related both to the wide array of sentence types, and to its sounds and the way they are combined in words.

Wakeman’s introduction to the first edition of this Dictionary records that the first Dictionary of the Yoruba language was published in the year 1843, compiles by Samuel (afterwards Bishop) Crowther.

The printing plates of the 1937 edition were destroyed in an air raid on Exeter early in the Second World War. Since then the Dictionary has been out of print. The Oxford University Press has agreed with the Church Missionary Society to meet the urgent demand for the book by printing the text photographically, in order to avoid the further delay that revision would involve.

Ohun ti a ba fara sise fun

Bi aiye ba nfe o loni
Ti o balowo lowo
Won a ma fe o lola
Jeki o wa ni ipo atata
Aiye a ma ye o si terin-terin
Jeki o deni rago
Ko o ri bi aiye ti nyinmu si o
Eko si tun seni doga
Mura ki o ko dara-dara
Iya nbo fomo ti ko gbon
Ekun mbe fomo ti o nsa kiri
Ma fowuro sere ore mi
Mura si ise ojo nlo.
