Which set of Yoruba do you belong? Uncivilised set or cultured set?
There are well-civilized Yoruba people who respect your opinion regardless your class, status or religion. These set of people are honest, resilient and kind. They are the ones you pray to meet each morning you wake up to life! On the other hand, there are the negative ones who bring disgrace to Yoruba tribe. Opposite of those genuine people who will support you without looking back. Yes, the true Yoruba people are ever so greatly created. Some people find it hard to entangle with reasonable people, hence the reason for their ill-mannerism. You see some Yoruba people disgracing each other publicly, but bear in mind, they are the wrong set of Yoruba.
Good Yoruba people are united in love. They reject and lambast the toxic ones on social media and those around you!
