^^it's also known as imole which most people translate as hard knowledge.

however, the brazilian interpretation seems to mean malian ie religion from mali.

this is rather puzzling since there's no known connection between nigeria/yorubaland and mali that i'm aware of [human trafficking aside]. Unless there's something i dont know.

as puzzling as the yoruba word for obesiance which is juba. Juba happens to be the name of a king in ancient mauritania.

by esin mali i assume you mean esin imale.

Also, why does imole have at least three meanings in yoruba, albeit different intonations, and all relating to religion.

Imole also means orisa worship, or revelation.

does imole have another meaning besides that, because i just read something about african brazilian muslims being called male, or imale.
