Lol. You are Yoruba, but I won't because you don't respect other people's tradition and culture, condescend so low as your grandpa to come for your tribe because I believe there are sane and reasonable Yoruba people, I mean people your parents weren't privileged enough meet which led to the drastically reduction of your common sense that would have let you know the importance of culture and respecting other people's culture.

Permit me to bring it to your notice that a Yoruba man(Davido) who every male in your lineage would wanna be like married an Igbo woman[Traditionally].

These are the kind of Yoruba people that matters in the society, not someone like you.

I watched how a lady that went to agùlù in anambra state just this last festive season to watch masquerades with her family on youtube. So entertaining.

This is a very, very detailed piece.
Tradition is all we have and it gives me orgasms to see the next generation carry on with it.

My dear Ihitte-Uboma

Brings back long memories of when I visited Ihitte-Uboma for the burial of a friend's husband.
She couldn't freely receive me there so we managed to drive to neighboring Obowo, she was still inhibited so we had to drive all the way down to Umuopara in Umuahia where she gave me debbé as appreciation for the sacrifice of coming.

We almost crashed at '7-and-half' on our way back if not for God who cautioned her late husband and told him that he had no reason to be jealous since death had done them part.

Nice town aside from those SARS that always stay around Ishinweke waylaying AKTC and Abia Line buses.

Check Flo Chinyere on youtube.
The lady that wrote all Nigerian recipes.

U can also check achukwu masquerade iruagba ekwulobia, isuofia etc. They will show different types of masquerades dancing.

We usually go and watch them when we were growing up.

Some modern Yoruba boys, especially the poverty ridden ones from poor homes are terrible, the way they represent the great Yoruba tribe online can be nauseating, very annoying poor lads angry

NO BI TODAY YOU START SHAME YORUBA WITH OIL AND PEPPER TALK.
SO DAVIDO MARRIED IGBO, THEREFORE WE SHOULD ALL EMULATE HIM BECAUSE IT'S THE GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT?

OGA YOUR SANCTIMONIOUS YARNS ARE FOR NEWCOMERS ON THE FORUM. WE KNOW HOW TRIBALISTIC AND STUPID YOU CAN BE. WE KNOW HOW YOU RIDICULE THE YORUBAS LIKE YOU PICK YOUR NOSE. I'M NOT EVEN YORUBA. FOR YOU TO BELIEVE I'M YORUBA AND START TO RAIN RUBBISH WITHOUT CONFIRMATION IS ENOUGH PROOF OF HOW MUCH HATRED AND RIDICULE YOU HAVE IN YOUR BANK FOR THE TRIBE.

FEEL PAINED OR NOT, DONSTAN, THE TRUTH OF LIFE IS THAT MANY THINGS WE CALL CULTURE IS OUTDATED, BEAR NO MEANINGFUL FRUITS, DEVELOPS US NEITHER INDIVIDUALLY OR COLLECTIVELY, AND MUST BE DISCARDED.
:
Look at this efulefu. It's people like you that reject your culture and start practicing oyibo culture, calling it civilization. No people on earth that doesn't do one or too inherited stuffs which has no developmental value(''developmental value'' in your words).
Let me give you just one example. In the highly developed England, nobody eats food again in any function ones the queen has stopped eating, you dare not walk in front of the queen and ones you see the queen drop her bag on the table in any gathering, everyone stands up and leave,if you are having a marriage ceremony, the bride must wear white and so on..... These things are cultures of the English people which they inherited and still practice. If you go to India, China, America, France, Japan and so on. You see their culture but down here we claim more civilized than civilization.

You mean these old men are just coming of age? I would think this ceremony is for teenagers or younger boys like 15. Or do you mean these ones could only recently afford to be a part of the ceremony? Nice tradition anyway. I don’t think they suffered enough though grin.
