(1) She is going nut..... I decided to stay clear and obaserve behind, but she still find away to call my name......

(2) She is Hot for me..... But aint going in that stinking pussy i rather spend the rest of my life in jail

(1) You are a very dumb fellow and you haven't denied it at anytime.

See, I am professionally trained to spot trends and congruence in both qualitative and quantitative data or information.

So, it was a piece of cake, and a walk over, for me to fish you out as one and the same person as Edeyoung. grin

The funny thing is that despite your hasty reply to your own comment, you still give yourself away in many ways.

The next time you want to pretend to be someone else from another moniker, you must not forget to factor in the following facts:

(A) The fact that each individual have their own unique argumentation style, such as your distinctively foolish argumentation.

For example, just like you do as gregyboy you also attached a screenshot that refutes your own position in the hope that no one will notice.

See link below for how I exposed that:

https://www.nairaland.com/5846948/benin-yoruba-speaking-empire/11#90427145

(B) The fact that each individual have their own unique "response bank" from which they choose their specific reply to specific contentions.

(C) The fact that each individual have their own unique writting style such as your repeated abnormal use of paragraphs as well as ellipses [i.e., "................."], and your ocassional distinctive difficulty of stringing words together to form a coherent thought.

(D) The fact that each individual unintentionally succumbs to some natural psychological dynamics.

(i) This particular factor played out when you commented with your "Edeyoung" account but failed to cc/mention your "gregyboy" account when ccing/mentioning your Edo lying colleagues.

You simply succumbed unintentionally to the default that you are one and the same person, and as such you naturally didn't realize the need to cc/mention yourself among others you mentioned. Lol.

See attachment below for the comment I am referring to here.

(ii) This psychological factor also played out when you went on to another thread using your "gregyboy" moniker to advertize "Edeyoung's" thread.

You whined and ranted that the Yorubas are avoiding "Edeyoung's" thread. You gave yourself away there too, as such adverts of your dead threads are uniquely typical of you and you alone.

PS: It's not my first time to fish out people like you. I once fished out your brother "Prolog" when he was hiding under the moniker "Ghostwon". He was obviously so shocked that he subsequently came out of hiding and surrendered.


(2) Listen gayboy, stop veiling your sexual identity and orientation. I have already exposed you on that beyond any remedy.

Also, the fact that you are always quick to choose jail term over freedom is very telling.

It appears you're already anticipating the fact that the provisons of the Nigeria "Same Sex Marriage (Prohibition) Act" of 2013 will eventually catch up with you sooner or later.

Before I opened this post I looked in the section and see about 4 or 5 different threads all pumping false superiority for Edo. All opened by edeyoung. I said ooh, this is gregyboy! Then i opened this post and you confirmed it!

You've been shooting them down and destroying them. What do you expect? Night flyers are dodging you. grin grin

I knew all along that it was him. I was simply playing along and allowing him write more responses in order to give me enough data to work with.

Just as the words "Olokun" and "Samudradeva" have absolutely no meaning in your Edo language, they therefore can never possibly be indigenous to Benin. cheesy

The former (Olokun) is indigenous to Yoruba, and the latter (Samudradeva) is indigenous to India.

So what was the reason for the conquest prior to European coming?

was it not to still get slaves... Stop blaming the Europeans...

You have a comprehension problem, as you seem to find it hard to comprehend history.

There was never a slavetrade anywhere in Africa prior to the disruption of the Arabian fundamentalist warmongers.

You need to go and reeducate yourself regarding the slavetrades that occured on the continent.

One of them was called the Portuguese slavetrade for a reason.

These are the horific campaigns that lasted for over 2,000 years.

ℹArabian also knowm as the Transaharan
ℹPortuguese
ℹTransatlantic

Furthermore, there was never a slavetrade anywhere in Yorubaland , STOP IT.

You dont know what you're on about.

It isnt a game dude.

Foreign slavery that lasted for over 2000 years destroyed our continent, chattel slavery.

Theres no terminology for slave in the Yoruba language.

Eru used to mean 'prisoners of the state' or POW, most eru was known to be in receipt of wages, doesnt mean - slave as in slavery or the slave trade.

There was never such a slavetrade on the continent prior to the arrival of foreign warmongers.

Slavery began with the arrival of Islam and Christianity.

Shut up and stop regurgitating mouth-to-mouth Edo nonsense from your Edo blogs.

In case you're unsure, I didn't read your Edo blog screenshot for obvious reasons.

"Olokun" (among other deities) was indigenous to you, yet their names have to come from the Yorubas. grin cheesy

This is more like an Edo ret@rd saying: "Samudradeva" is originally a Benin god -- don't worry about the Indian name that we call it. grin

What happened to their supposed original Edo names??

Hmmm ... I have an idea. The Yorubas suddenly stopped you from using "your own" Edo names for "your own" Edo gods. grin

Isn't God wonderful?? cheesy

What other kind of reasoning is expected from gregyboy than this?? grin


(2) No that's false, the ancestral home of Olokun as set up by the Itsekiris (Yoruba people), for all the non-Yorubas of the region, is found outside Benin -- at Ughoton precisely.

Go do your field work. Ask your Yoruba masters at the Benin palace. Hopefully they don't behead you for disturbing peace at the palace. cheesy

You still went on to shoot and expose yourself further with the bolded.

It's psychological! You're just not smart enough to realize it.

In your plastic mind you were trying to dissociate the two monikers from each other (as much as you can) lest someone suddenly initiate the possibility of a connection between the two.

But little did you realize that repeatedly keeping them away from each other (even when they normally shouldn't) is all the evidence needed to expose you to be the same person behind Edeyoung and gregyboy.

U lack comprehension...what research have u done towards that

According to Lovejoy, Paul E. (2012). Transformations of Slavery: A History of Slavery in Africa. London: Cambridge University Press.

Slavery was a part of the economic structure of African societies for many centuries, although the extent varied.

Also in Noel King (ed.), Ibn Battuta in Black Africa , Princeton 2005, p. 54.
Ibn Battuta , who visited the ancient kingdom of
Mali in the mid-14th century, recounts that the local inhabitants vied with each other in the number of slaves and servants they had, and was himself given a slave boy as a "hospitality gift


Slavery always existed in Africa prior to the Europeans coming...

Says who?

The people who participated in slavery?

You can pass me with that rhetoric, according to our historians there was no slavery in Africa prior to the arrival of the Arabian fundamentalist and Eurocentric warmongers.

Their was no chattel slavery, a slave trade ever in African history prior to foreign distruption. The slaves in African history was another word for prisoner. i.e prisoner of the state, in rare instances POW's e.t.c

Furthermore, i will go with our historians against any Eurocentric narrative.

My response, is Shut Up, how dare you talk ish about any African country when your parents was heavily involved in the slavetrade.

My thing is, Paul should write the history on how the Eurocentric will return all our stolen aretefacts or STFU.

I'm still waiting for the African historian that said there was no slavery b4 the Europeans coming...

The only clown here is you.

Provide us with the evidence of chattel slavery or a slave trade on the continent prior to the Arabian fundamentalist and the Eurocentric warmongers or jog along.
