The Yoruba week consist of five days. Of these, only four have names.

 Traditionally, the Yoruba count their week starting from the Oj gn, this day is dedicated to gn. The second day is Oj Jkta the day is dedicated to Sng. The third day is known as the Oj s- this day is dedicated to rsh ńl (Obtl), while the fourth day is the Oj Awo, in honour of rnml.

The Yoruba calendar (Kojoda) year starts from 3 June to 2 June of the following year.

According to this calendar, the Gregorian year 2008 CE is the 10,050th year of Yoruba culture.

 To reconcile with the Gregorian calendar, Yoruba people also often measure time in seven days a week and four weeks a month:
