How is she "Yoruba-Fulani"?
She is #Fulani. But she speaks #Yoruba, because that's where she lives.
I can bet it with you that if you visit Enugu, you will see Fulanis speaking Igbo there. They are nomads.

yeah,that's not what i meant, its a generally known stuff that fulani and yoruba have some history together, i doubt you can find any fulani group in enugu where most of them would speak igbo as fluently as they're speaking yoruba here.

unless,you are denying the fact that yoruba-fulani people do exist?

Just chut the heck up.
I am from Niger state, so you can't tell me shite.

I watched the entire video, and the lady who spoke in Yoruba never said anything about being Yoruba. She spoke in Yoruba language that's simply all. That she said she is from Ilorin (which is actually a city, while she looks like a typical nomad woman in a countryside environment) does not mean anything. Fulanis are nomads by nature, and in Kwara state they adapt with all the necessary tools they need to survive in their environment, including acquired language.

Yoruba-Fulani exist for those who have mixed parentage same way Gwari-Fulani, Dagomba-Fulani, Idoma-Fulani, Ebira-Fulani, Mossi-Fulani, or whatever-Fulani people also exist, for people mixed between those two tribes.

And as per the bolded, who told you that?
It is well known that Fulanis speak the language of whatever environment they settle in. Go to Ghana, there are Fulanis speakng twi around Kumasi. I think the fact that this video was shot in Kwara is what is confusing you. The Fulanis in Ekiti also speak Yoruba. Are they Yoruba-Fulani too?

There are many Fulani settlement in part of ilorin E.g Isale Fulani, Ejindongari e.t.c. On these part, they speak both Yoruba and Fulani language. God bless the Alimi dynasty

You have issues . Do you even understand her words? She had the option to speak English (you see she can't), she can't speak fula too, but she speaks yoruba fluently. How is this possible that she only knows yoruba?
