In Yoruba, a Niger-Congo language mainly spoken in southwestern Nigeria and parts of neighboring countries, the term for a ‘Water Drop’ is ‘Omi Tutu.’ Here, ‘Omi’ means ‘water,’ and ‘Tutu’ stands for ‘cool’ or ‘cold,’ representing a single droplet. The language is known for its richness in idioms, proverbs, and specialized terminology, often imbued with cultural or spiritual significance.
