Origin Of Yoruba Ronu - By Hubert Ogunde by TooNoisy(f): 11:42am On Jul 01, 2023
I have seen a lot of funny comments o social media lately, especially with the millennials claiming that Dayo Israel invented Yoruba Ronu as a slang coined to incite hate against Igbos. I read the arguments by both sides and I could only imagine most these guys were born in the 90s and early 2000s. So where did Yoruba ronu originate from.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MBtAXhymijo

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MBtAXhymijo

Please see link above and listen to the song. The song was originally performed at the height of the shenanigans' of the first republic. The Yoruba had an internal war between Awolowo and Akintola; and Awolowo was eventually jailed when Akintola aligned with Ahmadu Bello's group. Some of the lyrics paraphrased mean

What has happened to the Yoruba
A wise people who have seen wealth and civilization
The same wisdom is not working against them to take them backwards
Think Yoruba think
Yoruba undermine each other because of money and political positions
They subvert justice and declare the innocent guilty and the guilty innocent
The Yoruba have become a soccer ball that people kick however the like
Think Yoruba think

This song was produced in 1964 and has since been a rallying cry for the Yoruba especially when confronted with very tricky situations, such as the one between Awolowo and Akintola or when folks like MKO were undermining Awolowo in 1979. It even came up during the June 12 struggle and some Yoruba impostors were supporting Abacha.

So when I see people claim Dayo Israel started Yoruba Ronu as a rallying point against Igbo; I just laugh. Dayo Israel was born in 1987, 23 years after the song was originally performed. The song has nothing to do with Igbos; it is just a phrase that means - think, Yoruba think.

I would really love thins to be on frontpage so that we can clear the air on that. This is what Nairaland should be about

Southwest Yoruba people..

That’s the truth

Funny fact

The have never loved themselves… only use others as coverup

But keep shouting sophistication and “ wise”

I don't blame them too much, without tribalism, their regions will have been owned by other people. They failed to learn how to compete on a level playing field.

It is actually the Igbos that have an inferiority complex. They believe the whole world is fighting them. Queen Elizabeth died; one Uju Anya made it about Igbos... wetin concern Queen Elizabeth and Igbos. The whole Xenophobia is South Africa is mainly against Igbos. Same thing in Malaysia and Indonesia. You guys cannot progress with this victim mentality.

You claim people are biased against you but please tell me one elected Igbo politician that supported your Peter Obi. Even his state governor - Charles Soludo - wrote a lengthy article ridiculing his candidacy. Uzodinma and Umahi openly worked for Tinubu. Ugwuanyi and Ikpeazu were the first to congratulate Tinubu. Even the likes of Pius Anyim and Osita Chidoka weere openly supporting Atiku. The Nnamanis, Okorochas, Chimes, Ohakims, Egwus and all the other Igbo politicians were either supporting Tinubu or Atiku. So who betrayed who? Not one elected Igbo official .... not even one from Anambra state was supporting Peter Obi but your hatred for others would not let you understand that charity begins at home.

Same thing during the war. Nnamdi Azikiwe openly criticised the war and was the first to return to Nigeria in 1968. Lot's of Igbo solders including Emeka Nzeogwu, Ifeajuna and other criticised Ojukwu's war but it was Awolowo that was your problem.

We have all left you to continue your tribalism cry from now till forever... we dont care.

And you that you own your region; how developed is it? It is so developed you cant even go home for Christmas that you have now become refugees in Lagos, Abuja, Kano and Port Harcourt. Why can't you just stay in your region and develop it like you developed the rest of the world?

You guys are filled with so much hate and you are the losers for it. You vote in the worst governors (including Peter Obi) who only steal your money but Tinubu who has not held an elective office since 2007 was your problem. Your region is not developed because you vote out of hate and tribalism. That is why you all voted PDP from 1999 to 2019 and have nothing to show for it.

Who is filled with Jealousy and Envy? Who has been crying up and down looking for mandate? Who cries marginalisation everyday?

By 2031 Nigeria would have had uninterrupted democracy for 32 years and 16 of those years with with Yoruba man as president. 8 with a Yoruba man as vice president abs speaker. Hausa/Fulanu would have had it for 11 years and Ijaw for 5 years. Which tribe would have had zero President or VP.

Which region has the highest GDP? Even exclude Lagos; the South West has the highest GDP. Which region has no sea port? You people are always going to other regions to beg for bread and yet you claim they are jealous of you. What is there to be jealous of please.

You have been hating since time immemorial so it is nothing new. It is what you guys are known for. You hate Fulanis, Hausa, Isekiri, Ijaw, South Africans, Kenyans, British, Malaysians. You even hate yourselves and that is why you guys cannot work together to achieve a common purpose. You hate yourselves so much that none of your politicians could even support Peter Obi. What a shame. See what hate does.

Tribalism did not start today..some Yoruba elites claimed it was born out of igbo government of 63’ to 67” .. they argued igbos corned all position and was everywhere.. same line sultan Bello echoed .. let’s agreed they were everywhere taking up jobs and position meant for indigenous people .. how about other 450 tribes in Nigeria ?
Did they take over their jobs like igbos ?

Tribalism is part of Yoruba culture .. but hatred of igbos is always out of their inferior nature ..
That pushes them to compete ..

We all have a shot at a level playing ground .. reason I don’t support ipob..

Hate is what Igbos are known for... it is for your tribe and tribe only. All other tribes get along. The Hausa/Fulani have moved on, knowing Atiku lost. The Ijaws moved on quickly after Jonathan lost. Na only Igbo still dey cry and hate from 2015 till 2031. Una dey try o. How can you have this much hate in your heart.

You forget that even during Jonathan Ijaws weren't insulted the way Igbos were insulted because of Jonathan by you people..
