Yoruba Proverb

Yorùbá:  Èniyàn kì í f’owó ra òyì, kó má kọ ọ l’ójú.

English:  One does not buy giddiness with money, for it not to make  one dizzy.

Usage:   This proverb is used to show that people want value for  money.  In the business world, customer satisfaction is very important to the survival of any organization.  This can only be guaranteed when the organization has the culture of customer-oriented service.

This implies teamwork, and all employees at every level must work towards quality product or service delivery. Since customers satisfaction is one of the indicators of a healthy business every organisation imbibes this culture.

Therefore, in other to stress the importance of getting value for money through customer-oriented service, this proverb is added, “Èniyàn kì í f’owó ra òyì, kó má kọ ọ l’ójú”; that is, “One does not buy giddiness with money, for it not to make one dizzy”.
