Global Staying Power Of Yoruba Language and Culture- Reno Omokri by blamingthedevil: 9:07am On Sep 02, 2023
I congratulate Nigeria for the adoption of a Nigerian language, Yoruba, as a testing language for the Department of Motor Vehicles in the United States.

Similarly, since 2014, Selfridges and Harrods have been employing Yoruba-speaking staff, and the UK Metropolitan Police Service has been hiring Yoruba-speaking Constables and Officers since 2015.

Elsewhere, I have written about traversing the American continent and studying the staying power of Yoruba language and culture in the Americas. Enslaved people were taken from all over Africa, but ONLY the Yoruba language, culture, and traditional religion have collectively withstood the acculturation by European culture to become one of the most dominant cultures in the Americas and Caribbeans.

Yoruba Ifa-based Babalawo are very popular with Whites and Latinos in the Americas, and Santeria and CandomblΓ© are two of the fastest growing religions in North and South America. They are both based on traditional Yoruba Ifa religion, mixed with Catholicism, with saints known as Orisa.

Even in modern times, music of Yoruba origin is rebranding Nigeria's image away from 419 and romance scams. For this, we thank those who set the table and laid the foundation, especially Fela Kuti, King Sunny Ade, and Chief Commander Ebenezer Obey.

Unsurprisingly, all of Nigeria's Grammy Award winners have been of Yoruba descent, except Burna Boy, including:

Sade Adu (1986), Babatunde Olatunji (1991), Sikiru Adepoju (1991) and Seal (1996), Burna Boy (2021), Wizkid (2021), Temilade Openiyi AKA Tems (2023).

Once again, I say a big congratulations to Nigeria.

🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣

This tribe and propaganda!!!!

No be this same USA I dey?. Funny thing is you see them call the Igbos chest beaters but these guys always look for anything any anyOne says about Yoruba and are quick to popularize it even when the person is just trolling or totally insignificant 🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣

Do you know how many foreign languages and cultures are propagated in tech daily ? Afrikaans is the number one recognized language from African continent globally yet you don't see the Zulus dancing that the white man has recodnized them 🀣🀣

I am sure the Nairaland tribe chiefs will be dancing to this mediocre news. This nigga using you all to troll

There is no where Yoruba is recodnized specifically. I live in the US and have family in the UK .

The UK metro police started employing Yoruba speakers solely for the number of crimes commited by Yoruba speaking people in the UK so they wanted to be able to intercept and decode the calls . Because these criminals use yoruba only to speak on the phone in texts and in emails so the UK metro police had to find a way to intercept this. But here they are dancing as if it's a positive reason they are employedπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Don't believe me, contact the UK metropolice help desk ! This info is available to the public. Yorubas are profiled in the UK as the number 1 tribe that commits all cyber crime from Nigeria.
Reno is just exposing it all, we all know. At one point it was the Jamaicans. Go to Peckham and Kent na Yoruba gangs full there 🀣🀣

Same way Italia police employ people who speak Esan in Palermo doesnt make my mum's people the main culture in Italy

Which Nigerian here in America won't tell yoΓΊ the truth that the Yoruba run gangs here?. They steal cars everyday and ship to Nigeria, na their work ! Plus Account hacking, Credit card fraud , identify theft that's what they do here in America mostly . They work with the Asians and are masters of all manner of tax frauds and such. The American police whenever they arrest Nigerian involved in fraud assume 100% you are yoruba . Facts only

Yes, more Yorubas are in America...since business shifted to China and when China became the world leading Manufacturer, more igbos prefer China...and if same census is conducted in China today, you will discover more igbos in China than any other tribe in Africa...not just west African.


One good thing about Igbos is that you don't see them fighting for Citizenship in another man's country, is business kawai

Our Jews wannabe people just full the thread with their normal hatred and jealousy. They can't stand it when others are prospering, dey think say Yoruba dey compete with them... People wey dey their own lane dey do dia thing.

Only Igbo people dey force others to call themselves Igbo. Yoruba people no send, na everyone dey use dia own mouth talk say dem be Yorubas, From Igala people to Benin Republic...as far as Brazil, Togo, to Cuba. Yoruba no dey force dem to call themselves Yorubas...it comes freely.

I will advise our Nigerian Jews to stop forcing Igbos on people that are unwilling to be Igbos (Many of them are afraid of the bad reputation of the Igbos...all of them dey avoid una like plaque) Na only una get this problem, from Anioma, Ikwere, Ijaw to Asaba, those ones say Dem no be Igbo.😁😜😁😜😁😜😁

Yoruba is a race of black people whose culture is supreme and a way of life, you can't kill it.
