Sogbanmu's child
Of royal blood and settled in wealth
The heir who is a mannish remnant
Amororo's descendant
The son majestically enthroned perpetually
Lasting, fair and regal as white royalty
Ijaola's child
Offspring of Koleoso, who gladly embraced chiefdom
Descended from, and entitled to, three crowns
The one ordained by birth, but another chosen
In the end, it makes no difference as well

Used to placate children
He who struts at the grasp of honour
He is well content with his mother's milk

The vulture prances and rambles harmlessly
Only in the absence of the Tiger do dogs bark

He never lacks food to eat
He never lacks goods to sell
Instead of running undesirable errands
One would rather endure an ox's restraint
Emerging from the people of Akesan
