    I think it’s weird that everyone at this event was Yoruba. I mean, I’m Yoruba and I’m just wondering why there wasn’t a lot of diversity at this

      But she did not say there arent Igbo people. She said DIVERSITY! So that could mean that apart from the Yoruba tribe, she didnt see the rest of the Nigerian tribe which could be the Idoma, Hausa, Efik, Fulani, Igbo etc (may I no expose the little I know)

    • Natruetalk

      November 22, 2012 at 9:36 am

      pleaaaaaaase don’t bring that yoruba thingy here o…. what is the essence of prostrating or kneeling down in front of your elder’s and then causing and swearing behind their backs? abegiiiii!

    • Bleed blue

      November 22, 2012 at 1:02 pm

      As in…you just got it…I’m yoruba and I’m tired of the 2-faced tradition of respect we practise. Kneel down in front of “aunty” then yimu as soon as she turns her back. Abeg free me jor.

      And by the way, how can one tell the age group of a commentator ehn Monica? You be winsh?

    @nino lol i was actually going to mention the other tribes i spotted,i just lost focus.I’m really not myopic.
    I really love how civilized ‘Old Money’ folks in Lagos behave,not loud or tacky but simple with an air of sophistication ,exposure,education and career achievement laced with good old values new money cant buy.I honestly admire the elaborate respect culture among the Yorubas no matter their social standing,other tribes should take a cue!

    Colourful event !!! Feels real good when dedication to service pays off and you come under the spotlight. CONGRATS Yewande Zacheaus !!! But wait ??? There is one interesting observation, as we all know no CEO can build a company all alone without any help. Where are the staff of Eventful (past and present) ???? I browsed through over 40 photos and absolutely nothing on staff. Haba Mummy Y. Zachy at least you for try acknowledge their contribution to your success now, because only you no go fit build this kind company alone lai lai. Anyway, more grease to your elbows.
