Moyinoluwa Adeyemi Builds Watch Face That Tells Time In Yoruba

Moyinoluwa Adeyemi

Moyinoluwa Adeyemi studied Computer Science from Obafemi Awolowo University, she is now a Software Engineer at Swifta Systems and also a co-organizer at Google Developers Group.

One Friday evening after work, she had an aha moment. She looked at a clock and thought “What if it could tell the time in Yoruba?”. That question has led to the development of an Android Watch Face that tells time in Yoruba language.


It wasn’t simple as a,b,c, she had to get ideas from some of her friends and do extensive research before she came up with a working prototype. It will probably be the first ever indigenous watch face app on the google play store.
