You know that most comment we make here on Nairaland are just for fun. I had respected you so much, and being such one i respected i don't expect this from you. I was born in Yorubaland but wasn't opportuned to mix up with the 7 years i spent there. I don't think asking somebody (which isn't you) was bad though but don't quote me like this next time. Oshe!

Rubbish!! What's this incoherent jargon?? You are a Yoruba hater and me no like u again, case closed!

Just try and be your true self, if you hate Yorubas be free to say at least this is a faceless forum and no one can do anything for you. But pretending to like Yorubas on one thread and denigrating us on another is nothing but an act of cowardice and betrayal.

Forget what we do here on Nairaland, i even intend marrying from Yorubaland by the way wink that is why i'm here to learn the language so that when my pro in-laws begin to scream 'omo ibo' i'll know how to deal with that, so i don't hate Yorubas. Just the way you peeps behave on Nairaland.

I will recommend some Yoruba books for you, start from Alawiye by JF Odunjo and gradually progressed to DO Fagunwa's books like 'Ogboju ode ninu Igbo irunmole' and later to 'Asa ati Orisa ile Yoruba' before you know it you'll be able to read and write in Yoruba. grin cool
