Yeah, I know Maryland is Yoruba.

Maryland is a State

Dallas is a City and Yoruba dominate Texas so don’t go there.

What a moronic statement!!!

Why do you people like to grasp at straws instead of accepting your folly and learning?


You must not carry last?
You must be a slowpoke, you brought up the issue of overstayed visa. If you were not documented would you have had a visa in the first place, much less overstayed?. run along boy.

You are a cretin!

When you learn to read and comprehend, you will realise that if you overstayed your visa and start living and working in the US, you are now an "Undocumented migrant".

FOOOOL! You will carry last LAS LAS and chop breakfast.

naa sonone your stupid brother talk say una igbos plenty pass yorubas for north ?

I come tall sey because una dey park una sele for one market make una think so...

Igbo no even reach half 9f yorubas in the north..
Don't you know that there are far more Igbos and non Yorubas who can speak Yoruba language than the Yorubas and non Igbos to the Igbo language.

The statistics is based on the people chosen the languages they understood.

Lagos made most Nigerians (non Yorubas) to understand Yoruba language than Igbo language.
So the total numbers chosen Yoruba language does not transcend that they are of Yoruba origin.

I really struggle to believe there are more Yorubas in the USA than Igbos.

I am suspecting maybe Yorubas just teach their kids their indigenous language more than Igbos.

There are more Yorubas in the UK than Igbo. I struggle to believe that is also the case in the USA.
I’m in the US. I have met more Yorubas than Igbos all my years here. When people that have no facts say there are more Igbo, I’m like, but I see more Yorubas more frequently than Igbo. Now this official statistics confirms it there are more Yorubas than Igbos

Texas altogether has more Yoruba than Igbo. Even Dallas is still Yoruba. There’s high presence of Igbo but Yoruba are still more

It is just a few mooorons that the useless NL people allowed on the platform and allow to flourish, while banning those who try to stop them.

In reality and real life, most Igbos and Yorubas get along quite well.

The irony of this story is that the Igbos were the first set of people from Nigeria to dominate the U.S. en masse from 1930s

You're surprised because Yorubas are not noisemakers and chest beaters unlike some of our countrymen.

The most travelled tribe from Nigeria to other countries are the Yorubas, be it in Africa, America, Europe and others, they are there going about without noise making like an empty barrel.

We just don't travel to unsafe regions. That's all.
Don't b mistaken, yorubas ain't just Nigerians.
Other West African countries have yoruba.

Also, igbos adopt cultures so much, including languages. So, some of dem find it hard teaching dia kids dia language. Even in Nigeria, some Igbo kids residing in Lagos don't know how to speak Igbo.

Your poverty and low IQ from being jobless and wasting your life opening threads to attack Igbos already shows you would die if you have any illness.

I am sure that applies to your wider family too.
