Ta lo mo Okolo e l'Oyo = a way of tellling someone that he/she is unknown or insignificant

Story: Okolo was a horseminder in Oyo town. One of his friends was asked by his would be in laws to name his associates, he then called the name Okolo. The in laws jokingly asked sarcastically who the hell was Okolo "who knows your Okolo in Oyo". Okolo felt very bad about this, the following day he set the house of his master on fire. The arson incident made him known in Oyo town from then on.
