Tobi isn’t an English name and you should stop watching ‘Need for Speed’. Tobi was coined from Tobechukwu. Tobechukwus can also answer TC or TCee just as Chiadikobi can be called Kobi.


Simple google check would have helped you.

Tobi or Tobe or Toby are all short for Tobechukwu.
Tobi can also be short for Yoruba name Tobilola.

We are talking about a girl whose name is Tobechukwu. Friends and family call her Tobi.

Stop confusing yourself with google.

Hehehehe grin grin grin

See how they’re dragging the poor girl from left to right! Funnily enough, if this girl (with the very same names) was accused of peddling drugs, you’d have seen these very same people tossing her back and forth like you see in a cartoon when two characters are tossing a primed grenade back and forth in fear between each other! shocked

It is shameful that the sophisticated group doesn't know that the girl is from Idemili in Anambra

Yoruba is competing with Hausa in illiteracy

I don't know Yorubas problem.
The name "Tobi" is a short form of Tobechukwu. Tobi in that context isn't a Yoruba word. I'm Chidera my Nick is Dera.


For the Phillips issue, Is Phillips a Yoruba word? No.
Phillips is an English word. My sister(a core Igbo) bears Amarachi Phillips too. So what's y'all problem? You see TOBECHUKWU in her name and you are claiming her as Yoruba?


You are claiming she is half Yoruba and half Igbo. She is a full Igbo. There are no Yoruba names in her name. She is from idemili Anambra. So idemili is a yorjba town right?
