African- Nigerian name.

The name Mayowa means one who brings joy.

Mayowas are quite friendly and have big hearts. A Mayowa often tends to be a perfectionist and likes it when things are done the right way. Gifted in academics, music and sports Mayowas are witty, clever and well rounded students.
But, you don't want to cross a Mayowa, for they have low tolerance for ignorance and unpleasant behaviour and often hold grudges for an eternity. But Mayowas always stick up for their friends and stand up for what is right always.

Mayowas are also loyal, sometimes flirty, with a great sense of humour and are a great person to have at any party.
Now, Mayowas never disappoint in the appearance area, and are extremely beautiful. Mayowa's are usually curvy, busty and have a great behind that drives boys crazy. Mayowas look drop dead gorgeous in a bikini and have bodies that look great in any outfit, not to mention that they're also great kissers. Beautiful inside and out, Mayowas are a great friend to have.
