Yoruba the pride of Nigeria.

If we had continued the regional government, we would have been the envy of Africa and the world in general.

We don’t just own small retail business, but we own mega industries and the largest service sectors in Nigeria.

Odua bless the Mighty Yoruba tribe.

you guys rock biko.

You people are gifted when it comes to creating wealth.

I noticed something in the Igbo version of this thread, the guys who made the list didn't include one man. The man is igbo and maker of Eva soap and others. It was this year I discovered he owns the company that makes most of the items we use. There many of such not known.

My uncle, a Benin man, own one of the biggest transport companies in Lagos but has no park in Benin. He did it intentionally.

Thanks bro. You did a wonderful job on this thread same with the other contributors.

I was just on my bed going through all this and I’m amazed with the reach and sagacity of the Yorubas. I know Edo/Benin also share some sort of similarities with us looking at the fact that we are all offspring of Oduduwa/Oranmiyan.

One important strength of the Yorubas is that they own businesses and corporations that cuts across all sectors, and we are well versed in the IT and service sector in general.

I live in the USA, IT and service sector generates a lot for the USA such as Google, Amazon, Facebook, AT&T, IBM, Walmart, and e.t.c.

If you check the richest people in the world, you will see a lot of these IT and Corporation plays a major role in the USA economy and the world in general. For example, amazon is just an online marketplace where several billions of goods are sold and that made Jeff one of the richest.

The Yoruba guys have invested in lot of these IT and corporations as evident in what you guys contributed from the first page up to this page. Most ignorant people always think prosperity is measured by selling from 2by2 shops or by assembling China auto parts and rebranding it as locally produced.

I’ll also contribute my quota on this thread later coz by far this is the most knowledgeable thread I’ve read on Nairaland. It’s not only about winning alone but it’s about gaining knowledge about business spread and how entrepreneurs are shaping Nigeria and Africa as a whole.

God bless everyone!

This thread has done justice it deserve in the history of who is who.

I hate boasting, I hate pride and it irks the living hell out of me when I read comments from my brothers.

Igbos are solid hustlers and well accomplished in their strides as it is evident but people will respect you more when you do not blow your own trumpet and let your works speak for you.

I drew inspiration from this thread.

yeah, I was shocked to know it's an igbo man behind the company and I even share with someone who expressed same surprise.


The point is, there are many many companies out there that we do not know who owns what. The ones we know are the ones made public.

Do you even know many companies in Lagos that igbo own and they don't even make noise.... Trust me, these igbo guys have gone far... There is nothing that we use today without igbo in print.... The igbo and hausa have covered the economy

Actually, Igbos and Yoruba hold this country in terms of quota contributions.

They are the most brilliant of all if we go by their accomplishments.

The stats are out there for all to see.

I was reading about a Yoruba guy who won the Yali competition for nano scanner invention that can detect fake drugs in real time. Dude beat over 150 contestants to emerge winner.

I was supposed to drop the link here but my business needed some logistics issue sorted and so I forgot until now. Maybe someone can Google and add it here.

With regards igbo companies not known, that is right and not in doubt and those who started this fight from that side had limited source.

There is one low key Igbo boy from Abia who made billions of naira from software sales. He is not even 30 yet and he loves to keep a low profile.

Ignorance! I just finished my ebolo vegetable soup. smiley
Yorubas are highly urbanised and a lot of people have lost solid contact with their roots so they don't know much about the various local soups made by our grandmothers from very nutritious vegetables like amunututu, sokoyokoto, ebolo, efinrin, ewuro and gbure. These vegetables are also herbal remedies for those who know how to use them. All eaten with iyan in the villages.

There's also ila alasepo, gbegiri, apon (ogbono) and elegede soups. Ewedu is a wonderful vegetable and herbal medicine.

I agree that most young Yorubas don't know much about these veggies and most bukas prepare the cheapest vegetable and egusi or ewedu.

I told you not to quote me, I was joking and made it peaceful but you didn't listen, I'm going to derail this thread forever.


1. Do you Know that in my place it is an abomination to add stew in a soup for someone, it shows that the person can't cook therefore he or she uses that stew to cover up his or her bad cooking.

2. How will you be eating stew all your life and believe you are actually eating. Most of the Stew isn't tomatoes but pepper a little tomatoes then more of pepper. Do you know why you cook beans with nothing on it? Because you're banking on putting stew on it. You're all deceiving yourself.

3. I wonder how you people eat and lick your fingers, the first day I saw a Yoruba soup, I vomited. I swear to God just looking at it made me vomit.

4. Yorubas are the dirtiest people on Earth, their women and men are dirty. You only need to look at your younger brother or sister to know about this.
In my language the word for Yoruba means "the people of dirt." If there's someone from my place reading this then he will know what I'm saying.

No wonder why they call you demons for a reason.
