O pọ / o por – here’s the meaning


O pọ is a complete sentence as short as it is. O pọ/ opor is also written as o por. Which is the wrong spelling.

The correct spelling of o por is, O pọ. There is no “r” after it.

Anyway, o pọ translates to, “it is plenty”.

It is a Yoruba slang that you will most likely hear in the mouth of youths living in South West Nigeria.

Sometimes, they will call, o pọ yẹ yẹ! Or another popular extension of o por/opor is, “ko po ke!”.

All in all, they are slangs.

But o pọ/opor is a normal Yoruba statement that means, “it is plenty”.
