Translation for Malaah

I emailed Mr. Boh asking if he could translate the word Malaah (from yesterday's My Town Monday), and he wrote back:

"Malaah" in that particular context would mean something like (Great one -, goddess) but to give its translation from the Bameleke language, it means "Mother of mothers". Malaah is in the Bameleke language but to say mother of mothers sounds foolish; it could better go with 'goddess'.

He's appreciative for all the comments in response to his post.
