OAU Graduate Develops Watch That Tells Time In Yoruba

Moyinoluwa Adeyemi ,a  computer science graduate from Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) has developed an android watch that tells in Yoruba Language.

Adeyemi,an software developer at Swifta Systems and co -organizer at Google Developers Group was inspired by her curiosity as to what technological disruption a watch Face that tells time in Yoruba language could make.

It wasn’t simple as expected she had to do and rigorous research before she eventually came up with a working prototype.It is the first ever indigenous watch face app on the google play store.

Yoruba Watch Faces by Moyin is a collection of Watch Faces built in a popular local Nigerian dialect. There are currently two Watch Faces in the collection both of which are in Yoruba Language. The illustrations were created by @TheVunderkind and they depict a man and a woman dressed in the traditional Yoruba attire.
