Culture / Re: This Is Izaga The Tallest Igbo Masquerade by oloshun(m): 6:20pm On Nov 28

Okay. I think it is Ilorin Yoruba that refer to them as Alangere.

This is what am talking about. Look at the both of you exchanging knowledge of cultural differences and similarities in a neutral manner. Why can’t Nairaland be like this always?

Politics / Re: German Chancellor Olaf Scholz Visits Yoruba Cultural Centre In Lagos by oloshun(m): 4:07pm On Oct 31

As someone from Edo, I find myself drawn to the Yoruba culture of Nigeria. It's not just a fascination; it's a deep appreciation and love that I hold for what I consider to be the most beautiful culture in Africa. It might seem unusual for me to have such an affinity for a culture outside of my own, but there's something truly special about the Yoruba heritage that captivates my heart.

The Yoruba culture is a tapestry of history, a masterpiece of traditions that have withstood the test of time. It's like a living museum of Africa's past, present, and future. I can't help but be entranced by its richness and depth.

What stands out most is the way Yoruba culture weaves together a complex fabric of language, spirituality, art, and community. The Yoruba language is like a dance, with its melodious flow and expressive words that seem to carry stories within each syllable. It's a language that can paint a picture with its very pronunciation.

Their spiritual beliefs are equally captivating. The Yoruba pantheon of gods, the Orisha, is a fascinating blend of mythology and reverence. The intricate rituals, divinations, and ceremonies that honor these deities are nothing short of mesmerizing. I admire the profound connection they maintain with their ancestors, believing that the spirits continue to guide and protect them.

Yoruba artistry is a realm of wonder. The Adire and Aso-oke textiles are not merely fabrics; they are works of art. Each pattern and motif tells a story, preserving their history and heritage in threads. The intricate beadwork, the stunning masks, and the sculptures are a testament to the incredible talent and creativity of the Yoruba people.

Music and dance are like the heartbeats of the Yoruba culture. The talking drums, the rhythms of Sango, and the energy of Ogun's dance, all come together to create a unique and exhilarating symphony. Their festivals, like the Eyo and Osun, are a spectacle of color and joy, a testament to the celebratory spirit that runs through their veins.

What's most striking is the strong sense of community and family in the Yoruba culture. I, from Edo, can't help but appreciate the way they embrace one another, the warmth in their interactions, and the strength of their bonds. They place great importance on names, known as "Oruko," and I admire how they cherish their ancestors and carry their legacies forward through generations.

It's worth noting that my love for Yoruba culture does not diminish my love for my own Edo heritage. Rather, it serves as a testament to the beauty of diversity in Nigeria. We are a tapestry of cultures, each offering something unique and beautiful. The Yoruba culture, in all its magnificence, adds vibrancy to the mosaic of our nation.

So, as someone from Edo with a deep admiration for the Yoruba culture, I can't help but celebrate their traditions and their profound impact on Nigeria and Africa as a whole. The Yoruba culture, with its language, spirituality, art, and sense of community, is a treasure that enriches us all.

From your piece up here, I am marveled. Your presentation speaks high volume of your intelligence. If you don't mind, I would like us to engage more on academic issues. I have sent you an email request in your NL page. Thanks.

Business / Re: US Supports 18,000 Nigerian Businesses With $244m by oloshun(m): 10:23pm On Oct 26
How exactly did they get the businesses? Will it reach those poor market women who sell akara, garri, beans, rice, etc., the main people running the economy or some selected VIPs?

Sometimes when your business is registered, such funds are not always available for individuals. They are donated to investment funds which are later redistributed among banks like Bank of Agriculture, industry where people can apply for soft loans. So the first qualification would be business registration with CAC or other agencies. But I must confirm, these funds have helped a lot of people. Because the grassroots don’t have or don’t to attempt or ask about information, we don’t have them.

Your work to desensitise Yorubas who fell for Igbo propaganda is well appreciated.

You are inadvertently ensuring that in any future election, Peter Obi would never achieve the kind of non-Igbo support he achieved in 2023.

I am the last that would be decieved by Igbo propaganda.

A friend of mine is also regretting .

Sports / Re: I'm A Beautiful Woman And I Want To Start A Family— Francisca Ordega by oloshun(m): 12:16am On Aug 24
This is what I try to make men understand on this forum but most of them can't spot it.
Some weeks ago a very successful woman wanted to jump into the lagoon cos of man. That is just one out of many who have gone beyond just thinking suicide to attempting it. This is another successful lady thinking about settling down. My point still remains that being successful will not make a woman forget or kill her need of a man. Am not talking about the perverts who claim feminist online but are craving for a man's touch. My advice is this guys look beyond social media groom yourself, work hard and be ready for the future. 7 women will still say let us bear your name we don't need your money. Please guys don't die now stay alive for the future.

I am speechless! This is one of the most matured ladies on NL. Your analysis is as real as reality. I commend your confidence, boldness, and intelligence. Please keep it up, real ladies and gentlemen need this kind of conversation.
Family / Re: My To Be In-laws Are Frustrating Me by oloshun(m): 10:44pm On Jul 25
Brother, first, I do not want you to think you are young. We thank God that you have achieved what seem to be hard target-comfortable zone. Because it is not common for people to achice that with the current situation in the country, people will automatically see you as a mean ticket. This is the best time to reorganize, recognize, and know what you really want for your life.

This is not time for drama in your life. I am not saying living is bad, and to love is not a bad thing either; but it is not everything we love that is good for our progress, stability and contuity.if her family wants her to travel before marriage, let them send her, she is not your wife yet, thus, you are not obliged. If you take their condition now, just know that you are going to have a transaction wife, and your home is transaction because they will always use your wife as a bait.
Politics / Re: Tinubu Specially Receives Ibori At His Residence, After Meeting 1999 Governors by oloshun(m): 12:11pm On Jul 13
I really do not like Tinubu

However I totally respect him as a political operative. The man is always thinking many steps ahead.

He knows APC is weak in the SS, so he's looking to solidify his position there. With Wike and Ibori on side, he will be in a very strong position in that region.

Others could learn a lot from him in strategic planning

This is what my friend from Delta told me yesterday. He said he doesn't like him but he knows how to work his things out before time.

I don’t cry; but reading about DaGrin and the comments make me cry. Is good to be you. DaGrin died long ago and people still love him like he was here yesterday; regardless of tribe nor religion. DaGrin was loved by ALL across ethnicities. I came to realize something: the special people created like that come to life once in a while, deliver their destined messages, and pass away at early age. May his soul rest in pease always.

Family / Re: My 4-Year-Old Daughter Keeps Telling Mysterious Stories About Her Past Life by oloshun(m): 4:05pm On May 30
Most people don't believe but reincarnation is of the most real thing in life. For instance, as I type, my name is Babatunde, I might not remember everything about my past life, but I tell you, I remember 50% of it. To nail it, I remember the cause of my death and the face of the last nurse that was in the room in the last dying minutes. She was the same nurse when I was reborn 3 years after. I am still friend with the grandchildren of the friend that poisoned me to death in my past life. There are many of things I still remember. I had three wives in my past life and three of them are still mygrandmother's, and many more. Apart from age differences, my uncles and aunts still come to me for advices everytime. Lastly, I was a great Orisa worshipper in my past life, and I am still one now. My name was Olayiwola-Olosun then, my current name is still Olayiwola-Olosun.

I think you should be tired of this scam now. It's long due. You are the same person, you open about two accounts daily and post the same thing and using your popular account to sympathize with yourself. How come the writeup and the account details never changed. You are a big scam!

Brother, this is a very sensitive matter. My best advice is for you to let your wife go. If it is not working now, it won’t work later. Your daughter’s life and well-being should be your paramount priority. When she is grown, you can consider remarrying if the situation remains the same.
