Wò ó/Wo- Meaning

Wò ó Also commonly shortened to Wo, is a verb in Yoruba. Wo means “To look” or “To watch”. Wo became a very popular Yoruba word and expression when popular Nigerian musician Olamide Badoo, used the word as the title of his hit song titled Wo.

Wo is a verb, it’s an action word. It means that watch over something, to watch something like TV, or to look at something. Yoruba words tend to have several meanings and Wo is not an exception.

Example: 1. Wò ó! Wọn ǹ bá ẹ wí ní bí! (Meaning: Look! They are addressing you over here!)
