Practical Evidence that What Reno Said About Yourbas is True by Tribal: 1:02pm On Aug 13, 2022
Yorubas are the Light of Black Africa!!!!!!! Yoruba Youths are now getting to Learn our True History that we are the Greatest African Traders and Businessmen those days and we are now massively moving into Building Material Businesses, Clothing Businesses, Food Businesses, etc. Why was History intentionally eliminated from School Curriculum?! To hide the Greatness of Yorubaness from the new Yoruba Generation and Destroy them into thinking doing evil for money is our way. The age-long Historical Greatness of Yorubas did not come from Culture or idol Worship, it always comes from Inventing/Producing/Trading/Providing benefitial Goods and Services for Humanity locally and internationally. The knowledge of True Yorubaness is back!

The Era is back when Yorubas shall be known for what we were historically always known for in the Long History of Humanity. Yourbas are specially gifted as Traders and Businessmen even as our forefathers did locally and internationally, and as many Yorubas still do today. In recent years, some of our youths that didn't know how we Yorubas became the Richest Black African Tribe were lured and deceived to see YahooYahoo or ritual as best way to wealth. They are now getting to know the Truth about who Yorubas really are and moving into Businesses that benefits Humanity.

Yorubas lead by example when it comes to giving Honour to whom Honour is due, home and abroad. Even when we travel outside the Country, the host Country never has any reason to regret inter-marrying Yorubas, soon accepting Yorubas as part of them, and absorbing Yorubas into them because of the sincere gratuitous Contributions to Development and Progress of the host Countries. Yorubas do Not gang up to upsurge or Hijack the Ownership of Ancestral Lands and Homes of People hosting us no matter how long we live among them. This is why our Hosts all over the World see no need to be hypertensive or to sleep with one eye open. No iota of mistrust for Yorubas because they know that Yorubas have no hidden agenda whatsoever against them, so they peacefully sleep like babies daily and thank God for bringing the Yorubas to live among them because of the true Progress and Sincere Mental/Educational/Tech/Physical Developments that Yorubas impact on the Host Countries.

Almost 300 Years ago, Yorubas started migrating to and fro Ghana for International Businesses. Whenever our People arrived Accra, they consistently settled in a particular area where People from all over Ghana eventually come to buy and Partner to Greater Heights in Business with the Yorubas. As that area rapidly expanded over the Years, the new Businesses that they introduced to Ghanaians prospered so well that Ghana gladly, joyfully and willingly Named the Place Makola Market because the Yoruba International wonderful Merchants moved their goods such as Yoruba-produced Wears (Adire, Aso Oke, etc), Yoruba Wares(awesomely crafted Clay and Bronze Pots, Images, etc), Smithes Iron Products like Cutlasses, Farm tools, etc from Makola Market all the way from Ibadan to Accrato sell to Ghanaians. Even till today, the the Name of the Ancient Market has not changed even though there are now many Skysrappers and High-rise Business Buildings there as the Market keeps expanding and progressing in real Development daily. Ghanaians are not ingrates, they genuine Love and Appreciate People that being Great Developments to there Land, so the name of the biggest International Market in Ghana is still Mokola Market in Accra and shall always remain so. If you need awesome good to buy at most afford prices next time you visit Ghana, tell any Uber or Tro-tro that you are going to Mokola Market.

This is genuine Yorubaness foundation from Nigeria exported to Ghana. Bringing genuine unalloyed Love and Developments to their Land is why Ghanaians later decided to see everyone that comes from Nigeria as their blood Borthers and Sisters. Unfortunately much later, less than 50 Years ago, soon after a particular clan started going to Ghana for Business, the story started changing.

The Pride, chest-beating and unprecedented wickedness melted to their host Communities in Ghana became too unbearable for Ghana that they soon declared Nigerians personal non granta. The most internationally shocking was when some of them (welcomed with opened-arms and given opportunity to do Business in Ghana because of the age-long Reputation, Bond and Brotherliness that Yorubas have built with Ghanaians) from Nigeria used love/marriage to lure and kidnapped 4 Ghanaians beautiful girls and then brutally Cut Off their Heads for money Rituals. Ghanaia Government swiftly went into Action by questioning why Nigeria breeds such evil-minded souls and the Government responded that Ghana Government should deal with them appropriately, and they were later judged and killed. This made Ghanaians to fear and hate all Nigeiran since they don't know which one is Yoruba, Hausa, or the evil Tribe. One of my Yoruba friends that is now based in Ghana is finding it hard to get the nod of his fiance's Parent for marriage because they referred to that incident and said they can trust Nigerian with their daughter.

Many Countries that used to feel lucky and joyfully welcome Yorubas with opened harms those days are now terrified when you mentioned to them that you are from Nigeria because they don't even know the different Tribes. During Olusegun Obasanjo time as President, UK, Kenya, Libya, Tanzania, South Africa and South Africans used to fling their immigration Doors wide-open for Nigerians. With salutes and ecstatic Smiles on their faces then whenever they saw me a Yoruba approaching those days, their immigration welcomed Nigeirans healthily. Infact, at their Abuja Office then, they quickly give their Visa same day a Nigeiran applied. Unfortunately, not any more!!! Why?! Those same type that went to Destroy image of Nigeria in Ghana were welcomed to Tanzania. Soon they started melting many unprecedented Wickedness to their Host Country. This came to peak when in 2017 far away from their own Homeland and Country they had the Effrontery to Kidnap the Youngest Billionare in the County and demanded that massive ransomed be paid. This was a height of Stupidity and poor thinking because the Father and Owners of the Country has Access to all Communications ITs. Tanzania Soldiers soon located them and fished them out of their hideout. Yes, you know that only that Chest-beating Tribe could even try such in such Country. Unfortunately, all Nigerian Tribes that wants to Travel to Tanzania are now paying for the Wickedness that they know nothing about, simply because we share Country with them incorrigible Greedy Souls.

If nothing,this election has made me even more proud of my tribe kiss They hate us because everything about us is a mirror of what they want to become but can't kiss

When our children are successful, busy buying all their lands, building beautiful houses, driving expensive cars and their own children are busy doing "owo mida" on the streets, greeting us "Twale baba" each time we pass in our Mercedes Benz GLE's, you think they are happy? That is what is paining them, don't let anybody tell you otherwise...Na our success dey pepper them kiss
All Nigerians would Salute, Celebrate and truly Love Yorubas when we ALL realize that the Battles (Spiritual, Social and Mental) that Yorubas Fought and still fighting is for ALL Africans. I pity you Igbos that are fighting Yorubas because your forefathers didn't not tell you the Truth that it was their cancerous Envy for Yorubas that made them to plant you as Enemies. I pity the fore-fathers of Igbos because Africa would have become forever Great and Liberated if they supported Yorubas in seeing that African Man is never inferior to the Europeans. Till today, you will often hear Igbos say "After white man is Igbo man"(that is why Igbos are the first Tribe that started Efforts for the demonic Continuation of Colonization and Enslaving fellow Africans mentality and they shall forever always Fail as they did in this Election in JESUS' Name!) Their forefathers saw the demonic Europeans that came to Deceive/Enslave Africans as forever Superior to them, while Yoruba Forefathers never allowed that lie penetrate us. The great Obafemi Awolowo woke modern day Africans up by saying "Africans (as well as all other Humans Races) have exact equal Brian Cells as Caucasians." The fact that he selfless Opened Africans eyes and ALL Africans the Courage to believe this Natural TRUTH is why Europeans secretly hated Awolowo till he died.

That is why The SUPREME SPIRIT Power of ALMIGHTY God Priotize the indomitable Yoruba Human Vessel because we maintain the godship over the Earth handed over to Adam our first Father without any hidden Agenda to Enslave fellow Huamnbeings. CREATOR gave Humanbeings Dominion over things to do what we desire with them, never over Huamnbeings. Satan is the one that pushes those that he Captured through Greed to try to enslave other Huamnbeings.

Deeper Yorubas knows that we are first decendants of Adam and Eve, and we still carry the undiluted Divine Original Human Code from Creation as directly Programmed by the CREATOR of Humanity. And even the devil too appreciates and highly rates Yoruba Vessel. This is why the Highest current International Churches of the CREATOR of Humanity, as well as highest African Ifa Occult being learned and joined Internationally by even Europeans are from Yorubas. All African can born European-looking white but white can Never born African. So, they know we are their Father and Mother but Satan put it in them to Enslave Africans as against the Law that says "Honour your Father and Mother". Satan knows that as soon as this Law is not obeyed, there shall never be Peace on Earth.

To start with, I hope you know that Yorubas were the best at Trading and Businesses among all Black African Tribes in Pre-Colonial Era. If you doubt it, check this Thread that I stubbled upon on Nairaland: https://www.nairaland.com/7279364/practical-evidence-what-reno-said

If any other Tribe went through the ferocious Weaponry of Mental Manipulations that was unleashed by the European Colonial Masters on Yorubas, they can never thrive as half as current Yorubas. They intentionally ERASED All the Positive History that document Yoruba Greatness and the fact that we had the International Highest numbers of young Multi-Millionaires in Africa Pre-Colonial Era. If you still doubt, Google the latest unearthed Yoruba advancedly Produced Broze Products that mystified Western Technology because they are asking how on Earth did a People in Africa produced that which could only be done by recent Western Technologies. This is apart from Yoruba Designer Fabrics, Beeds, Iron tools, Bronze and Metal Yoruba Jewels, etc that was being Exported to other African Countries and Arabia through Morocco, and to all over the World long before Britain came. They Destroyed all the Historical Documents about these things and Cut Off the modern Generation of Yorubas from their inborn Greatness and True Identity. I hope you know white People hate Africans with Perfect Hatred, even though racism has been much covered up in our Era. Imagine you lived when their Hatred was manifested to the fullest unhindered. In Congo, African Men that don't grow enough Crops for them had their Hands and Penis cut off right in front of their Wives and Children. They had so much experimented their Straight-from-Hell Mental Wickedness and Manipulations on Yorubas People being the first that they met, that by the time they got to other Nigerian Tribes, they were already almost tired of the Unleashement of all the passionate Haterd they had for Black Africans. For so long Years, Yorubas took it all for other Africans as Shock-absorbers. Just to mention one: they gave Oyo People Weapons and told them that they are Superior to other Yorubas from Osun, Ekiti, Ondo and Manipulated the Yorubas against Yorubas till they got the brothers start Kiriji War of killing fellow Yorubas for good 16 Years. They still write False History to Pretend as if they are the Saviour that settled the Problem (Order out of Chaos: for those that knows the methodology of the demonic Souls that desire to Own the World). Not all Europeans are evil and demonic but, among all African Tribes, this Satanic Deceptfulness is what Igbos have really swallowed from the European.

They discovered by Western divination that the CREATOR of Humanity Created Yorubas as Special Spiritually Intelligent Beings. They also know that United Glory of Black People around the World is embedded in the Fulfillment of Yoruba Destiny as a People. Even after Slave Trade Era and when the Europeans thought they have Mentally Conquered all Africans forever, Yoruba: Awolowo a Yoruba Man was the First to demystify Europeans and Proved that Black People are equal to them, if not Greater. No other African Leader so speedily turned his Region to be like America, Germany, etc as Awolowo speedily did why Leading Western Nigeria. In fact, he set up so many Industries, built the very first Africa Skyscraper, started first TV Station, 1st Radio Station and Telephone when many of Eutopen Countries were even yet to have these things. This is why they fought tooth and nail behind the Scene to ensure he did not become Nigerian President. They know that Nigeria would have become forever Industrialized and they saw how Kwame Nkuruma and some other African Leaders were rushing to him for him to teach them the Template which they in turn went to replicate in their Countries.Yorubas went through so much. Among all Nigerian Tribes, Yorubas were the very first massive Tribe that British met in West Africa and they did so much mental Manipulation to Destroy the Progressiveness they witnessed in them as a People, to Prevent us from Uniting for Fulfilling the Prophesy that Africans all over the World shall become Respected and Honored through the Greatest of ALL Black African that shall be pioneered in f. So, Yorubas are in Recovery Uniting Process. The residual wickedness of British that still Serves as loopholes through which Igbos have been doing Nonsense in Yoruba Land shall soon be eliminated.

Now for the type of this demonic Igbo that I quoted who came to Lagos with nothing and started selling substandard Products to gather Yoruba Money and Yoruba Monies with which you then buy Yoruba's Land/Houses with singular Aim of Mocking Yorubas that freely allow you to Trade and Thrive without slaughtering you as the do up North, you can see how Satanic your Mentality is! Your demonic outview of Life from day 1 is to go and Cheat a People all over the World on their Ancestral Lands, rake in their Monies and then Tell them that they are fools for buying things from You! For how Long do you think the People you have shamed for allowing you to Thrive would not Arise and Start same Businesses you think you do?! Business-mindset and Skill was not brought from Heaven, it is learned on Earth. Watch the Next 4 Years, the Primary Mission of Yoruba Leaders is to Ensure every Yoruba Youth from JSS 1 Starts a Business no matter how Small so that by the Time they Graduate from University, it's already full Company. After all, most business Igbos don't value University Education as Yorubas do, we shall Combine both from now onwards and Take Over all the Selling of things you are into that tied your Life and shallow brain to focusing on frantically trying to Trample on WE that Accommodate you.

Remember that everywhere in the World where they ever allow you to Thrive, you soon Manifest your demonic Greed and myopic Stupid Pride of trying to Subdure and Enslave the Indigenous Owners after which they quickly Clip your wings and Cut you to size; Northern Nigerian, South Africa, Ghana, India, Tanzania, Dubai, Malaysia, etc. And finally now Yoruba Lagos that have tolerated you for the Longest Time has already Started the Process again you! You are done for!

Ritchie:

You mean that Yorubas are jealous of your poverty and flight from your villages?

You sound stupid even when somebody is trying to mitigate the tension,you still continue your clannishness.
Nobody envies your petty trading but just do your petty trading with clout and brain.Dont overstep your bounds.Respect your hosts accordingly.
Yorubas should be talking about envy not Igbos because Igbos are still upcoming.

Igbos are their own albertross...
1.
Igbos started sharing power with the Hausas from independence.They controlled the civil service.Yoruba were marginalised because they said they were in opposition.
Yoruba did not cry but looked up to God.
Yorubas still came out tops.Till date,Yorubas are the most prosperous Nigerians in Nigeria and abroad.

2.
Igbos,because they were not satisfied with being second in command to the Hausas even with all their power in the civil service,due to covetiousness,carried out the first coup and took the baton of power from Hausa killing Hausas,Yorubas,South southerners,Midwesterners but leaving their Igbo brethren. shocked

3.
In order to have absolute control and power,Igbos introduced unitary system of govt so that everyone will be bringing what they sweated for in their land to them so that they can share the bounties indisciminately and without fairness."Baboon dey work,monkey dey chop" .

4.
Igbos,with greediness and their reknowned covetiousness,left Igboland to seek to be Premier of the Yorubas in Ibadan which was the most developed place in Nigeria then.
Eyeing other people's properties has always been in Igbos'blood.Na wah o shocked

5.
There were series of Igbo betrayals of the Hausas whom they killed,betrayed Yoruba to join Hausas to form govt and also killing them(Yorubas),betraying South South and killing their leaders etc.

6.
After the civil war,Igbos still betrayed their Southern brothers by joining the Hausa/Fulani again to form NPN govt.Yorubas were marginalised but they looked up to God for succour.

7.
Igbos still later betrayed their Southern brothers to form PDP with Hausa/Fulani,marginalising the Yorubas but Yorubas still looked up to God,the Comforter.

8.
Even when Nigerians voted for Abiola en mass,a large majority of Igbos voted for Tofa whom they hardly knew just to show hatred and betrayal to Yorubas.

9.
After Abiola whose victory was annulled,Nigerians decided to compesate the Yorubas.Yorubas brought Falae,their choice but Ekwueme and some Northerners went to bring Obasanjo from prison knowing well that Obasanjo had always gone against the interest of Yorubas from inception.Our Igbo brothers were happy.They voted massively for Obasanjo to spite the Yorubas who expectedly did not vote for him.

10.
It was only in 2015 that Yorubas (since 1960 plus that Igbos have been in govt with the Hausa/Fulani) finally went federal in alliance with some Northerners.

The truth is:
Igbos are cry babies.Always complaining and lazy to stand alone without govt like the hardworking Yorubas.
Igbos are serial betrayers.
Igbos have always acted greedy and covetiously.
Igbos are liars because nobody has the power to marginalise them because they have been in power with Hausas (and even Obasanjo) since independence.I
s it that they have been marginalising themselves
Igbos have always fought to control Yorubaland,first Ibadan as would-be-premier and then Lagos,which Okpara,Azikiwe and co labelled "no man's land".
The questions are:
Why did Igbos marginalise themselves when they were in govt for decades?
Why are they so greedy and covetious?
Why are they so fixated on Yorubaland?
Why cant they live with the noble,accommodating Yorubas amicably and without acrimony?
Why,why,why?
Very eye-opening, thanks so much.

Cool story, sir. Keep it up.

To gullible people who have read or will read this, just know that this is a thoroughly whitewashed and hagiographic account of Yoruba-Ghana relations. The resentment and hatred of Nigerians in Ghana began long before Igbos began to go to Ghana, when the Nigerians in Ghana were virtually exclusively Yoruba people, with a sprinkling of Hausa people.

The names of the first Nigerians deported from Ghana in the late 1950s and early 1960s were: Alufa Osman Lardan, Ahmadu Baba, Samuel Faleye, Buliaminu Oni, and Alhaji Raji Bakare. We can see how very 'Igbo' these names are.

I recommend this paper written by Yoruba historians at the Ekiti State University: "Expulsion of Nigerian Immigrant Community in 1969: Causes and Impact" by Drs Johnson Olaosebikan Aremu and Theresa Ajayi of the Department of History and International Studies of the above-named university.

I'll post an excerpt from that publication here:

"Nigerian traders of Yoruba descent were in control of Ghana markets in both rural and urban centers where they prospered tremendously. This prosperity led to the swelling size of Yoruba population from around 57,400 in 1931 to over 191,802 in 1960. Olaniyi Rasheed observes that the rising commercial profile of the Yoruba migrants attracted competition and indignation from Ghanaians who developed a feeling of displacement from their established socio-economic position. It is also important to stress that the profligacy of Yoruba merchants and their pseudo-capitalist tendencies also intensified the process of xenophobia. It was alleged by Ghanaians that Yoruba flaunted their wealth by wearing shoes decorated with Ghanaian currency while rich traders often had “excessive gold decorations and abused the power of money”. Though there might have been some exaggerations in these descriptions of display of wealth to the consternation of Ghanaians, it is true that most Yoruba traders owned most of the beautiful houses in Ghana and lived a life of affluence during their good days in Ghana. As was expected, many Ghanaians felt degraded by the extravagant tendencies of the migrants. This was the beginning of xenophobic reaction against Nigerian migrants in Ghana. Most of the returnees could recollect how Ghanaians became curious and restless regarding the commercial acumen of Nigerian traders and farmers and their eventual wealth in no small a time after their arrival. This led to insinuations by Ghanaian natives that Yoruba’s were magicians and “could make money from anything including the air”. With time, Ghanaians labeled Nigerian (Yoruba) migrants variously as “clannish, callous, arrogant and thrifty” among others. With such feelings of deprivation and subordination to the Yoruba very rife among Ghanaians, it was very easy to transform the Yoruba identity from traders to criminals who deserved nothing but expulsion. Yoruba migrants were treated with disgust by their Ghanaian hosts. This prompted the emergence of xenophobic slogans against the Yoruba. One of such slogans as captured by Olaniyi Rasheed in one of his interviews was “Mubaka” meaning “you are going” ."

This is the history that you have tried to rewrite and claim that it was all roses and kumbaya between the Yorubas and the Ghanaians until Igbos showed up and messed things up. Lol. Well done, sir. This scapegoating of Igbo people that you Nigerians have turned into a pastime, I hope you people know that there is nothing at the end of that road except blood and heaps of dead bodies. I also hope that when that eventually happens all of you who are gathering firewood for that inferno will be able to live with yourselves.

Throughout history there has always been the tendency for prosperous migrant communities to be despised by their hosts; and the hosts have always managed to find negative anecdotes and make it central to the narrative ("Oh, they do rituals". "Oh they can kill their mother for money". "Oh, they are clannish." "Oh, they are criminals" etc.). It has never been about these anecdotes: it has always been about the dynamics of prosperous settler/host relations which are universal, from Ghana to Nigeria to Timbuktu.
