      This is why Nigeria will never be great. If we are still going ‘Yoruba this and Ibo that’. Shucks. You sound pained by the way…

      Yoruba men have no obsession with Ibo girls! You see a girl and you marry her, regardless of where she comes from. I am not Nigeria but this comment gets me annoyed. The only reason most of the Yoruba men’s Parents allow it is cause the “girl becomes Yoruba”, you rarely see Ibo boys marrying Yoruba girls.
      Regardless, there’s no obsession. It’s love.

      True that, my mum raised hell when my sister was dating an Ibo boy, but is very cool with my brother and his Ibo chick…
      I’m like mum huh?!! her reasons were that she was scared my sister might not blend into a totally different culture properly and I must say Nollywood has not portrayed Ibo traditions in the best light, they make it seem like women are subjected to a lot of wahala and suppression.

      Silly comment not true. I’m a Yoruba girl and my partner is Igbo same as my friend… It’s got nothing to do with being Igbo or whatever … The issue has rarely ever come up in our three years together . Nigeria is one country soo enough of this forceful divide that doesn’t even exist

      No silly comment. It’s her opinion, you don’t have to say its silly just because you don’t agree and you’re in the situation. #JustSaying.

      This is actually one of the first i have seen. most of the times Yoruba moms reject igbo girls for their sons. even my igbo friend. the yoruba mom chased her away claiming she has no culture. so idk what u have seen here.

    Ibo / Yoruba……. na wa ohh. Just had this argument about this with my colleague on this issue. Is it my fault that there is this yoruba boy i fancy ? , but i just feel its of no use to since he is yoruba and im ibo. Tryn to imagine the look on my mother’s face when she hears he is yoruba.

      at mamamia,abeg my sister it may not be worth it since you already think your mother may not approach,it is not always good to marry against your parents,they will always be a shoulder for you to lean on when the cheaps are down.

    between two people there may not be problem,family is always the issue most times.
    And when people share ordeals it could be nasty at times,people breaking into their own language in the middle of a conversation of course you dont understand.

    Yoruba this, Igbo that, it’s LOVE. One thing I will say is, there’s more intertribal marriages now compared to when my parent married. A lot of Yoruba men have a different, mature and loving vibe about them, that’s why my mom couldn’t resist my dad. Then, igbo women are knowm to be more savvy, and open in a different way, so put these two together, it’s perfect match. At the same time, perfect match is beyond ethnic tribe. It’s easier for the men to marry outside his ethnic tribe. Nonetheless, congrats to both them, wishing them the best.

      “Igbo women are known to be more savvy, open” Please where did you hear this? Any tribe can have savvy and open women. One of the most preposterous comments I’ve read.
      BN, you can play your usual politics and decide not to post. I wonder why there’s a space for comments when you select comments or post and later delete.
