When I say Africans, I do not exclusively mean people who are purely nationals of an African country. It is said that life started in Africa, so technically, everyone in the world is an African. Even if you do not identify as African, I am optimistic that there is a lesson in this book that would be beneficial to your personal life and your community when implemented.
An excellent growth strategy, in my opinion, is one's ability to learn from other people. That is what I do as part of my ongoing professional and personal development. I have no desire to make every single mistake there is. I choose to learn from other people to help me avoid the mistakes that they have made too.
When you purchase your own copy of this book, you can expect the following:
- HOW Africa got conquered
- WHY Africa is portrayed the way it is today
- WHAT Africans, as individuals, need to do to control their narrative and their future
- Essentials of starting and growing your own business
- WHY everyone has faith, even if you are not religious
- HOW to use spirituality and the Law of Attraction to manifest what you want
- HOW to use water to manifest wealth

How To Tell The Time On A Clock In Yoruba by Segilola Salami is a useful guide in teaching children how to tell the time on the clock in Yoruba. Each page has a colourful face of the clock followed by the time in both Yoruba and English.
The clock face shows the time from one o’clock to twelve o’clock on the hour, 15 minutes past the hour, 30 minutes past the hour and 45 minutes past the hour. How To Tell The Time On A Clock In Yoruba is a useful resource in teaching children how to not only tell the time but addition and subtraction.
A great accompaniment to this title is Learn To Count In Yoruba by Segilola Salami.
Like the other books by Segilola Salami, this book was written as a game to foster bonding between adult and child. The book starts off with colours and their names in both Yoruba and English. In the subsequent pages, the adult points to a colour and asks the child “what colour is this?” The child has to give the answer in both Yoruba and English.
With close to 50 pictures, organised into topics from names of food to names of places amongst others, it is sure to grab any toddler's attention
When read together with an adult, a toddler would love learning new words in Yoruba
In this book, we count from 1 to 100, then 100 to 1000 in the hundreds
To get the best out of the book, it is best if an adult goes through the book with the child.
Adults learning Yoruba would also find this book useful
Each page should be looked at as an electronic flashcard. The numbers are shown twice. In the first instance, it shows little information, just the number as a figure. The next page shows the figure and the word in Yoruba and English. This repetition should help in remembering the words in both languages.
Constant use of the book should foster a love for learning and confidence speaking both languages.
