Have you ever imagined being able to tell the time in Yoruba? Well, now you can with the Yoruba Watch Faces created by tech enthusiast and Software Engineer, Moyinoluwa Adeyemi.

This Computer Science graduate who has created a sizeable number of Android Watch Faces became inspired to create a way to tell​ the time in Yoruba after looking at a clock on a Friday evening after work.

Soon after, she started working on this idea, and began gathering all the knowledge she gained from the Natural Language Processing classes she took while in school.

Moyinoluwa has been doing awesome work even before her Android Watch Faces became popular. In 2013, she was the event developer of TEDxIfe that held in OAU, and was also on the 14-member team that helped improve the ranking of the university from 6th to 1st in Nigeria at the Webometrics ranking of universities.

Moyinoluwa is currently the Software Engineer at Swifta System and Services International.

Two of these Watch Faces are currently available for free download on Google Play Store, with each of them depicting a man and woman in Yoruba attire.
