Who is an Ọmọlúàbí

Who is an Ọmọlúàbí

The Ọmọlúàbí is a Yorùbá philosophical and cultural concept to describe a person of absolute goodness--An epitome of humanity.

The Ọmọlúàbí concept signifies courage, hard work, humility and respect, etc. 

An Ọmọlúàbí is a person of honor who understands the benefits of hard work, respects the rights of others, and gives to the community in deeds and in action. 

Above all, an Ọmọlúàbí is a person of high integrity.

The concept Ọmọlúàbí is an adjectival Yoruba phrase, which has the words - "Ọmọ-tí-Olú-ìwà-bí" as its components. 

Literally translated and separately, ọmọ means 'child', tí means 'that or which', Olú-ìwà means the chief or master of Ìwà (character), bí means 'born'. 

When combined, Ọmọlúàbí translates as "the baby/child begotten by the chief of Ìwà". 

Such a child is thought of as a paragon of excellence in character.
An Ọmọlúàbí demonstrates and exhibits the inherent virtue and value of Ìwàpẹ̀lẹ́. 

Ìwàpẹ̀lẹ́ is ultimately the basis of moral conduct in Yoruba culture and a core defining attribute of an Ọmọlúàbí.
