How Igbo And Yoruba Rivalry Shapes The World by Isinkwocha: 5:09pm On May 09, 2019
It has often been said that Africa's liberation will one day come through Nigeria attaining the dreams held by the founding fathers.
But truth be told, Nigerians fail to see the similarity as well as the differences they have as a strong tool to engage the world audience and see their country as another dream world worth Living Like America.

I focus on these two interesting major ethnic groups the Igbo and Yoruba.
Do you know that for every great hero from the East, there is almost always a parallel rivalry from their brother West?
In Politics:
Have you wondered why for every Azikiwe there's an Awolowo
For every Peter Obi, there's a Fashola
For every Okorocha, there's a Tinubu
For every Biafra , there's the Oduduwa

In Music
For every Nneka the musician there's an Asa
For every Yemi ALade, there's a Tiwa Savage
For every Phyno there's an Olamide
For every Wale, there's a Tinnie Tempah

In Sports
For every Enugu Rangers, there is a Shooting Stars of Ibadan
For every Kanu Nwankwo, there's a Segun Odegbami
For every Francis Obikwelu, there's Olusoji Fasugba

In Business and Industry,
For every Onitsha, there's a Lagos
For every Onwuka Kalu, there's a Tayo Aderinokun


In Academia
For every Chinua Achebe, there's Wole Soyinka

In movies
For every Pete Edochie, there's Olu Jacobs
For every Genevieve, there's an Omotola.

We can never overestimate the contributions of these two to the growth of this great nation. United with the much under-appreciated plethora of untapped talent from their sister North, no nation can rival the giant of Africa.

South West is playing a great politics ahead of 2023
If they continue to promote peace bettween themselves & Easterners then igbos will surely give their votes to the west

This guy is writing on assumption.... note YEMI blade is not Igbo...... father Yoruba and mother is Igbo. Just to affirm ooni of ife both Yoruba and Igbo have common ancestral history, so common achievements is not surprising. I smell FP
