Yorubas Lead In Education
If you don’t know that Wole Soyinka is Africa’s first Nobel Prize for Literature winner, then you are a learner.
No other Nigerian has ever won this award. In science and tech, Engr Ayodele Awojobi remains Nigeria’s greatest ever. Google about him to confirm. In Medicine, Nigeria’s best medical student ever is Victor Olalusi, having graduated from a Russian university with a perfect score of 5.0 CGPA, first of its kind in world’s history. He had previously had best WASSCE result in Nigeria in 2004 and highest post utme score in OAU. In Law, you know Gani Fawehinmi, Femi Falana and others. I can go on and on.
Moreover, the best universities in Nigeria are located in the Southwest. UI is incomparable, you know. Ogun State has the highest number of tertiary institutions in Nigeria. The best private universities are owned by Yorubas and situated in the southwest- Covenant, Landmark, Afe Babalola etc. You now know why other tribes rush to the Yoruba land like it’s paradise?
Yorubas Lead In Entertainment
Music is now big business in Nigeria. Historically, the greatest African musician who ever lived was Fela Anikulapo Kuti.
The world’s greatest award in music is the Grammy Award. The only 3 Nigerian musicians ever nominated for the Grammy are Femi Kuti and Sunny Ade & Wizkid. None from other tribes.
Even the MOBO, top black music award, has been dominated by acts like Tuface, 9ice, D’banj, Wizkid and Davido, from Nigeria. Only Tubaba is the non-Yoruba here. Psquare NEVER win am o, before una start to dey argue.
Every artiste now tries to sing in Yoruba, Even Rugged sef go steal Yoruba baba song diss 9ice. Lol. Yorubas rule the Nigerian music world.
In movies, Omotola remains the most celebrated having been listed in TIMES magazine of 2013 as one of the most influential human beings on earth, a feat her close competitor, Genevieve is yet to achieve. Respect Yorubas!
Yorubas Lead In Leadership/Politics
Love him or hate him, Obasanjo was for many years the most powerful person in Nigerian politics. He remains the first person to have ruled Nigeria as both military and civilian presido.
Since the 2011 general elections, the most influential person has been Bola Tinubu(love him or hate him). Historically, the most celebrated Nigerian politician ever is M.K.O Abiola. Do you know that Odumegwu Ojukwu greatly respected Obafemi Awolowo? During the civil war, he said this about Awolowo, ”one day, the Yoruba nation will tear apart from Nigeria without firing a single shot. And it will be through Awo’s legacy.” If Ojukwu could respect Yorubas, who are you not to? Lol.
Yorubas Lead In Religion
I for no bring religion come here but as e be sey na major role religion dey play for Naija, I say make I bring am. The largest church in Nigeria is the RCCG, founded and led by a Yoruba. MFM, Deeper Life, Gospel Faith etc are all founded and led by Yorubas.
Funny thing is, those wey dey beef Yorubas full these churches o, lol. Have you been to SCOAN? Love TB Joshua or hate him, people troop into that church from all over the world, even professors and people who are more educated and exposed than you are. Yes, you! Top non-Yoruba church founders like Pastors Lazarus Mouka and Oyakhilome have their churches’ headquarters situated in the Yorubaland.
Others are still scrambling for spaces in the Yorubaland, lol. Yorubas welcome and accommodate all of you o. Just respect them!
The Southwest Is The Business Centre Of Nigeria
Oya tell me why you carry your business come do for Lagos and you no do am for your village. Business no go move abi? Can you tell me the region in Nigeria where Banana Island, Lekki, Ajah, Victoria Island are situated. I know you wish to live for these areas, shey? Dangote is the richest man in Nigeria, right? Ask him which region most of his investments are situated and why he chose that region.
Ask Psquare if they fit sell their house wey dey Banana Island, go buy another one for Aba. Lol, so you see?
I never said Yoruba is the best tribe o. Abeg no misquote me. These are just very few of the reasons you have to respect the Yorubas. I envy them a lot. They deserve every hype they get.
