Why Are Yoruba's So Unified? by Coldkev17: 7:37pm On Mar 25
You can never see a yoruba who discriminate amongst each other on ethnicity and religious matter, they romance peacefully regardless of their religion.
They openly/carefully accept every tribe in marriage.

I currently have a Igbo girl friend, 20, who her parents always tell her it's a NO-NO answer if they bring a Yoruba man in the future. She's born and raised in SW

She's so baffle with this discrimination from her biased parent

Just like other tribes, Igbos love marrying themselves, irrespective of where they may be, to maintain the tribe's bloodline and unique identity.

This is a strong connection with what Abraham and Isaac did in the Bible (in Genesis) when Abraham insisted that his son must marry from his tribe and Isaac insisted that Jacob must marry from his tribe. That's why our people say we share some cultural similarities with Israel.

No be hate...na choice. Just respect that...

It was a covet operation run by labour party people to show disunity but it failed. Same shit Peter Obi used in Anambra Anglican vs Catholic, Igbos vs Yoruba, Igbos vs other Igbos e.t.c.

Yorubas co exist peacefully. I'm from a Muslim background but myself and one of my sisters are now Christians without issues. Same occurs in the extended family and throughout Yoruba land. Moreso, what statistics do you actually need when Tinubu is a Muslim and his wife a Christian?

You also forgot that in Yoruba land, there is no system that discriminates like the OSU system and the hatred towards Ebonyin Igbos by other Igbos.

Aketi's wife is a flat headed Olosho. Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour is a Brazilian Slave whose grandfather was dumped in Lagos years back.

None of the two idiots above is Yoruba, or are you saying that Rhodes-Vivour is the same at Adewale Osuntokun Orishagbemi?

Muslim and Christian co existing together is not a sign of togetherness but more of a cultural thing. Most Yorubas believe more in traditional religion of ifa, Ogun , egungun etc than foreign religions of Islam and Christianity. There are many cases here on Nairaland of babalawos that transitioned to become pastors in church and pastors that moved back to become babalawos and Obas seamlessly. If there is Yoruba togetherness as you mentioned why do some Yorubas call original indigenes of Lagos slaves as seen in screenshot below , some other Yorubas hate ijebus, despise them as ritualists and can disown their child for marrying an ijebu , some Yorubas distrust and hate Ibadan people totally because they say they are criminally minded and can never do clean business, some Yorubas despise people from ilaje area of Ondo state because according to them they are not real Yorubas. Is this what you call togetherness?

But why can't you Yoruba find a 20 year old Yoruba girl to date and marry?
Why are y'all so bent on marrying Igbo women when you hate Igbo men to the core?
The girl's parents are wise and sane for saying NO NO to it.
They know better.
That girl will wake up later if she disobeys her parents and marrying you to find out that all her children are "Omo ales".

You are a shameless tribalistic hatefilled fellow.

I have a Yoruba neighbor in Mile 12 market who says she will rather die than have her child marry a Bini man,she was born and raised in Uromi,oya talk another one.

Shameless tribalist,you must admit there are shameless tribalistic hatefilled fellows like you in all Tribes if at all you are sane.

which Unity?

let me say it Yorubas generally are great people but just like every other ethnicity they have mischief makers especially those agbado people that ran out of Thier States

Yoruba Muslims in kwara banned others from doing Thier isese

back in Lagos Yoruba Muslims are complete second class look at all the appointments in Lagos State


is either they're calling each other Omo ale or they're flogging eachother for looking like Omo obi during election



or they're calling MC macaroni and falz Omo ale for supporting a particular candidate


they see nothing wrong about seyi dragging ọbá of Lagos bear bear grin

but they insult Thier grandpa pa OBJ that he's Ibo




Again Yorubas are good people in general just like every other ethnicity but you see hateful hungry agbado people they're dragging Yorubas down

There are Yoruba Christians and Yoruba Muslims.
You are the only one ignorant of the facts.
The difference are very clear, from attitude, and behavior.

@OP It's the Yoruba language and culture that bonds us together.. we are Yorubas first before any religion and that has made our region very peaceful till date.. notice our muslim folks in Yorubaland don't behave like the wereys up North that destroy beer bottles and kill people for no just reason. It's because of civilization in the West.

There are bad sides too.. in terms of saboteurs. There are more saboteurs among Yorubas than any other ethnic group in Nigeria, it's God's grace that is making them fail. Those with non-Yoruba mothers too are doing theirs to destroy the Yoruba bond but they won't succeed.
