He lived part of his life in Ogun state . He even attended secondary school but I don't know for how long.

I will not be surprised that he speaks. Even some yoruba kids in UK that had never stepped their feet in Nigeria still speak the language fluently.

That is the beauty of being proud of your heritage.

You are right!
My sons are same age group as Anthony Joshua. They’ve never stepped foot in Nigeria but understand and speak a bit of our language.
A lot us parents who migrated from Naija in the 70s and 80s imbibed a lot of our culture in our children. For example, even though my grown sons haven’t been to Nigeria, they know which “swallow” goes with what! They combine amala with ewedu and pounded yam with Egusi. My first son cooks some Naija food expertly. His English fiancée enjoys jollof rice and will tuck in with him to enjoy amala. All of these and more bodes well for my grandchildren as they won’t lose their heritage.

So, I always laugh when I read some posts here making ignorant assertions about “abroad” children. They may be British, American etc. by birth and nationality, but people shouldn’t dispute some of their Naija upbringing cos it is Nigerian people from Nigeria that birthed and brought them up!

He doesn't look Yoruba at all. Is any of his parents or grand parents non-Yoruba?

Thumbs up madam for doing a good job unlike some other parents whose kids imbibed the street gang culture with the attendant violence and frustration all around. Naija values keep most children on the good path if diligently and warmly taught. God bless your family more.

Anthony Joshua had his rough patches but one can see the effect of his parents unrelenting work on him.

I posted this in another thread in response to one hate-filled yoot:



"You sound like a typical ipob yoot. You and your likes have been jumping from one thread to another telling us AJ is not Nigerian because he is not a Chibuzor. Yet, everyday you all celebrate one Ikechukwu or Nonso who won council election in Canada, UK and so on with the chants of Igbo Amaka. A lot of your tribesmen you all celebrate here have citizenship of other countries.

The link in the news is from "Independent", a British news outlet and it is well referenced that he is of Nigerian heritage and he even wanted to represent Nigeria in 2008 olympics. This same AJ whose Nigerian heritage you like to mock or undermined has a tatoo of Nigeria on his arm. Those of us who know him long before he became popular knows that he studied till JSS2 at Mayflower in Ikenne, Ogun State and he never shied away from associating with Nigeria. However, Britain gave him the platform he has today.
By the way, Nigeria is a dream-killer. If he didn't tow the path he towed, he might be nobody today."





If you see anyone undermining Joshua's Yoruba heritage, just know that the person is 98% likely to be from that side.

Yes, he attended Mayflower Secondary, Ikenne Remo in Ogun State (my alma-mater) for some years before his parent divorced when he left for the U.K. cool
