Mr man you are talking trash, we Yoruba have no correlation whatsoever with the Hebrews

Ok thanks for sharing your opinion. You can substantiate your claim with your findings about Yoruba origin.

Shila16:


I have been able to save #300000 but I dunno the business to go into that's going to yield profits.Nairalanders abeg I need your wise advice .Having heard of how people getting scammed ,all I need is something legit

How old are you?

Whatever you do to raise that much can help you make millions, don't be in a hurry to start something else because, the more you have to start, the more you have to lose. Its not about the big money, but good idea that you invest 20% and cash out 80%. Then rinse and repeat.

Be humble to learn from those that know better than you and apply their wisdom in your life and business and it will be good for you. What you are experiencing presently is the temptation to ground your business capital under the pretext of "what next?". Don't be stuck on sucker.

There is nothing like where to relax when you are just waking up in the morning into business. So, if you hide from hardwork, you will be exposed to hardship. Go and face the "brainwork" that goes with good success, and success will befriend you always. You haven't arrive yet.

That's what you ought to do and do more buying and selling for profits. Meanwhile, intellectual expertise is beyond buying and selling. If you can solve your own intellectual problem, you can proceed to solve we Yoruba problem banking on your intellectual prowess on Yoruba.

For now, you are a trader, not a scholar.

There is only one question i have for you for now; If Yoruba are descendants of Hebrews why did we need christianity to expose us to Hebrews? Certain families should have traditions of Hebrews and spread the knowledge of their existence

I mean even Islam came years before christianity yet Yoruba seemed oblivious to the existence of the Hebrew or Jewish people
Islam didn't come to Yoruba land before Christianity but Coptic Christian arrived as the present dsy Yoruba. And 18 century Christianity didn't expose Yoruba to the Ancient Hebrew God called Ella. The same name as Yoruba's God called Ela.The English language translated the Latin-Roma-,Greek Bible to her language, which was foreign. Ela is Coptic christain's Hebrew religion, ancient name of the God of Hebrew that became combined as Old and New testament, which the English called Eli in the Bible. Plainly, ‘Ella' and not ‘Eli' is the name of Ancient Hebrew's God.

As at today,there is research which is unreleased journal from a renown female professor in Harvard University, who specialise on Yoruba Art and history. This renown professor will soon come out with her journal on the Coptic Christian history before 12000AD in West Africa.

hayoholla,
You asserted this, ‘I must say yoruba history is a very complex and knotty one due to a lot of dispersion, intermingling, migration and emigration, which makes it very difficult to agree at a consensus. no matter how right both of you are in your view, I still hold to my assertion that no scholastic view of the yoruba race is so sacrosanct that it should be taken as final. if you ask me, just take a look at the bickering between the olugbo and the oni different view of history of yoruba.'


Genuinely, I stumbled on this above statement which is credited to you and I realized, you're 100% correct, on the reason, there is a divergent view on Yoruba place of origin. This is thw reason, I decided to use linguistic approach and Art work to ascertain the majority of the group that came together or those that their history, seemingly aligned through protolanguage.

Stay blessed,

Cheers,

You guys use your wild imagination steeped in inferiority complex and Hebrew worship calling it "thinking outside the box" so all common sense is thrown out the window without any need for consistency with historical facts

I can see the self acclaimed know it all is trolling at you. Perhaps you shouldn't quote him any more you to engage you but I want to know that the man was seen as a prophet by all at Morikas and Yoruba land as whole,even amongst his critic. So,I think it is right time not to engage a fellow who is absolutely ignorant of so many things but claims to be historian. A field that muddled up Yoruba History incoherently without considering Oral, Archeology and linguistic approach which ought to be leeway to the unverified history of fusing Yoruba with Ibos or other ethnic group in West Africa as if Yoruba don't have different identity and mode of traditional worship and ciltural practises. to research work.So dont take him serious.

On Al- Ilory's morikas is in Agege ,Lagos state. It road access, can be through all route within the vicinity it is located at Agege. From Total ,where the bus conveying or from A.p to Iyana Ipaja etc. The place of worship, school etc was very important in the olden days because, this is a place that's not far from Danjuma Cinema.Morikas is very popular in Agege because it was a well established Qur'anic schools that spans over four decades. The man has prove something that the real Yoruba( those that came with scientific knowledge, medicine knowledge-herbology,Earlier Visual Art, Ifaodu-Ela religion are migrants). Though, his knowledge is based on Arabic language that's based on shared word with Yoruba's,which show that Yoruba language travelled over 3000+ miles to be resident in West Africa. Some example are :


1.Aiysh/Asha-: is Hebrew and Yoruba: a word that is tradition in both language

2. Alfa/Aluph/Olifa(Onifa)/Alufa: Arabic,Hebrew and Yoruba : priest

3.Aryan/Eyan-: peole in ancient Persia(Aramaic) and Yoruba: a race, people, humans

4.Ba/Abba/-: is Yoruba and Hebrew word only: father,masculine head of family etc

4.Baba-: is Arabic;Islamic oriented people,Hindu, Hinduism, Sikhism and Yoruba: A holy man, a spiritual leader


6.Baka/Ba ka-: is Hebrew and Yoruba: searching for, wandering looking for.


7. Eda/Eda-: is Hebrew and Yoruba only: identity to identify self as a creature of God. In fact only the Hebrew called themselves this name in ‘Near East'.

8.Ella/Ela/Alla-: is Hebrew/ Yoruba/Arabic: God etc

9.El/ẹ́lẹ́ : Hebrew and Yoruba: mighty, strong8. Hajj/ju(ajo)/ guwr:- Arabic,Yoruba and Hebrew: sojourn, sojourner

10.Insha/a'she : Arabic and Yoruba: grace power,authority

11.Imra/imura:- Arabic and Yoruba: preparation to go to a place

12.Obe/ọ̀bọ̀: Hebrew and Yoruba: familiar spirit

13. Og/Ogun: Hebrew and Yoruba: lord of war

14. San'ra/Sanara: thunderstorm

15. Ruqu/bã rak / ba orokun: bow your knee,bend your knee



There are so many cognates I have studied in Classic Hebrew, which I can share but it will distort my research work. So, I minimize what I share with you, my friends and ignorant critic who use foul languages discriminately.

Infact, there is no iota of doubt that Al Ilory was vast in Arabic language and Yoruba, which made him posited the research work he showcase. In the Circle of some limited Yoruba historians, ‘anyone who didn't study History isn't worth to be taken serious'! Yet, Western world history begun with oral and before documented. And they spend more fund on Archeology and Classic language such as Cuneiform, Pictographs, hieroglyphs etc

Therefore Al Ilory exposed the flaws of Yoruba historians because their historical conception is based on archaic form of knowledge acquisition of European methodology that even the Europeans had moved away from because Archeology and Linguistic hold sway to establishing their views more , which are more tenable than something based on assumption grin cheesy .

Have you ever seen Europeans or Western world accepting the claim that Yoruba are the oldest people on earth without fossil link ? Funnily, Yoruba oral account made mention of it, but there is no evidence to support it. Do you know why ? Yoruba Oral account are in two ways :

1. The levant; Hebrews, Arabs that claim to be the ones who will populate the world through prophesy .

2. The consecrated Ham /darker Africans.

So, don't throw away Al Ilory concept because even the Arabic language is a drift away from Hebrew cum present day Yoruba language. The Hebrew and Yoruba language shared more semblance and meaning in words than any lexicons in the world . Interestingly, the only difference is the English form adopted to translate and transliterate Hebrew language through latin-,Greek around 1600AD in England. While French form of lettering was adopted by Samuel Ajayi Crowther with some English input which heavily influenced through diacritics.

Re: Yoruba Hebrew Heritage by Olu317(m): 12:08pm On Dec 26, 2019
Obalufon, At a point in Yoruba modern history, there are different Yoruba people either western world's English language's influenced scholars or Oral influence scholars who disagreed over the place of origin of ancient Yoruba ancestors. But one thing is certain, when so many theories fails, protolanguage solves the problem to balance it with the Art work to balance up the missing link.

Practically, Professor Akintoye in his glory doesn't understand what Cuneiform, pictographs, hieroglyphs, papyrus reading is all about. And I am sure he can't a read any of these works.So, why inconsistent bias man without notable knowledge on this platform remained regurgitating over written works that ought to be modified after loopholes in them. Thus limiting Yoruba ancestors( who wore headgears) history to a locality that Yoruba ancestors brought civilization to as the place of their origin.

In fact, there is a confusion about which is older between Yoruba's Ifaodu and Arabic's Ilm Al-raml, which constitutes an omnipresent divination system in the Arabic and Islamic culture. Thus, I will not blame Professor Akintoye because his calling is limted to wbat his understanding can adhere. In fact,some Western oriented Yoruba scholars can't do anything unless it is an English's language European influenced, which is the reason, I mock that lad on this platform whose knowledge is extremely limited to a robotic or programmed hypothesis.

While the Covering of the face were with chain to shield the eyes and beautify the wearer of the crown as a wealthy king. Does the costume look African? Even at excavated Faros,non was seen to had worn this attire.

Contact is not the same as origin
And it is more evident that influences of the sudanic and Arabic language and culture passed through our Muslim west African neighbours like the Mande, Hausa and fulani than a direct contact between Yoruba and the Arab world.

They don't look nor had Yoruba's nitty gritty knowledge to understanding the cosmology of Yoruba ancestors. Yoruba brought ifaodu religion,which was the connection Yoruba ancestors and west African dwellers.

Therefore, it is from this point of contact, Yoruba language became the teacher's language ( in linguistic), to the aboriginal people who became partly speakers or loaned into such ethnic group's language that some scholars claimed, that Yoruba parted with some ethnic group, about 2000 years ago. Yoruba language was a lingual franca in some places in Egypt and West Africa at arrival of Yoruba in west Africa.

Accomplishment is not "having semitic origin"

Yoruba don't need to deluded herself with semitic origin to feel accomplished
It is inferiority complex to do so
