I am still wondering why you won't see those with born to rule mentality making wave like this in the globe. If it's not Igbo certainly it will be yoruba or south southerner.

I hate to say this but I’ll definitely have to say it...


I’m beginning to find it uncomfortable as a Yoruba guy with the way Ndi IGBO make waves and break amazing records around the world. Things like this keep me wondering and questioning why my people in Osun specifically prefer wearing an Amoketun badge than being useful to the world and society.


Eniyan mi ko ni oye gangan

IGBO amaka sha!
