I have been watching from the sideline for quite a while now, the numerous ethnic jingoistical lambastation going on here on Nairaland. What I totally find very amusing and at the same time annoying is the way some people are parading themselves as spokesperson for the Ilaje people. For instance, it is very amusing to read incoherent and thus incorrect history 101 of the Ilaje by the young chap called "Alhaji alaya yi yeye" otherwise known as Alhj Harem. Well, one can excuse his mistakes, that boy aint a swimmer, he probably cant paddle a canoe with an "obele". Awori people can only paddle with an "àjè". Now, from the pack of these "Obsessionists", the one person that draws my anger is that "Propagandist boy" called beaf. He likes to claim that Ilaje people in Delta State are having it better than the ones in Ondo State. How come? If the Governor's people, the Ishekiri, our more populous and far richer (in term of Petroleum endowment)cousin in Delta are not laughing, how less the insignificant population of the Ilaje in Delta State? I just wonder at the basis of his comparison? Has he been to Ilaje Local Government in Ondo State lately? Anyway, irun mo fe fo rin pe ji an gban awa Ilaje re. Me fe ba Beaf ati aghan emewa re ka argue nitori omade naa go yeye. Sibesibe, mo mi be re rin, gban Ilaje re. Yin wa no! Abo oro an ji an mi fo ghun omaluabi rin o. Se wo gbo mi?

Well, the existence of Ilaje as a Yoruba subethnic groups messes up the narrative of Yoruba as parasites that some folk like to portray on NL.

This is why so many non-Yoruba seem to be interested in them...

From PapaBrowne who claimed that the Ilaje are not Yoruba, to various other clowns like Beaf and company.

Basically it is politics and propaganda..

Gban Ilaje re ke? Impossible,the whole concept of the political-swindle called Niger-delta would be rendered useless.
Ilaje questions the whole idea of 'minority oil' ,so they won't leave you alone mate.

It is very important to establish that you are neither alj haram nor his alter ego Jason123.

It is foolish to say that Itsekiri's are suffering in Delta state, and tremendously foolish to say Ilaje's have anything, but equality in Delta as well. Those things show you up as a fake, just like alj haram.

Hello young fellows, I knew you would think I am someone that I am not. Thats how the Nigerian State has conditioned you. I really feel for you. Anyway, I have no reason to claim who I am not, because I am a bonafide "oma Ilaje". I have no reason to claim Ibo, Hausa, Ibibio or any ethnic group save Yoruba/Ilaje. I would advice you to desist on casting aspersion on Alhaji Harem. He is not me and I am not him.

The reason I have not been meddling in the "confrontation" rather than "conversation" is the very immature and uncivilized way the discussions have been going on. However, the most restraining force for me to partake is the certainty of the meaninglessness of the cyber rants.

BTW, I am a German Nigerian by nationality, but Ilaje/Yoruba by the natural law of ethnic communality. I am a full blooded oma Ilaje born some 40 something years on the waters of Ilaje. Fed with "Pupuru" and "Imeeki". Nobody who is not an Ikale, Apoi, or Ilaje can know what "Imeeki" is. How dare you accuse me of impersonation? Apropos Beaf, gegebi mo ti fo, yin Ilaje no. La so ugba aghan ara oja re ni Usoko. Abi eran ehin yi we ri je re mi fun re ni wahala opolo? Mini mini yo!

E lee o arakonren original. U think I give a zshit about what you believe? Go and feast on elede jare and leave Ilaje matter alone. I know that that is your favourite past time in Usoko/Urobo land. You think everybody is like you? Some people pioneered 419 even before it became known as such, hence they got tagged WAYO, OJORO people.

Give me a break! This is not Alhaji Harem.

@Tpiah, the people from Ondo state are linguistically not very far from each other. However, the Ikale dialect is the closest to Ilaje among the pack. I can understand ede Ogho, Ifan, Onido, Idanre quite well. Its only Akure and Akoko that can give me a very serious challenge to comprehend. Akoko is really tough.

Beispiele:

Ogho ji gede
Ilaje ji dede
Ekiti ji kete

from the little you typed in your first post, i noticed the similarity with owo.

just wondered if there were any direct historical connections, that's all.

eg oral traditions of migrations betwwen the two.


i found [to my surprise], that i can understand ijebu somewhat, when its spoken, despite never having learnt or heard the dialect while growing up, so i suppose it [ijebu] probably sounds a bit like the ondo languages.

true.

and different dialects even among akoko itself.

Indeed, we are quite related to the Ijebus. The historical migratory pattern as has been passed down to us implies that the Ilaje migrated from "Ufe". We do also had some Bini influences too, as we also have influenced Bini. For instance, we also call "àgban" kokodia and sometimes in an exclamatory remark do say "Orisanobua". We are really very close.

BTW, my paternal grand mother was from Ifan. If you are on FB, and you wish to be friend, check out "BABA-ILAJE".
