Really!!..I think we need our minds reversed..seems to work in the wrong order..kudos to him..learnt a new language..but what do millions of Africans get for learning and perfecting English..a NOBEL PRIZE??...makes no sense
They even únderstand yoruba more than some yoruba people born in naija, thr is an american lady who was name and she even make proverbs wt yoruba, so amazing! She said 'mo lyk rice ati obe ata dindin'
Correct American!!!! 'nuff respect. Yoruba is a hard language to learn as an adult and he has done well. I also give it up to his yoruba teachers because they did their job very well.
He's so cute... I feel like fucking him all night! Damn!
He's so cute. I feel like fucking him all night. Damn!
That guy shamed me. I'd never seen a White person speak Nigerian language. I'd love to play the drum - as in say things with it. I can't speak any Nigerian language. He learnt Yoruba in less than a year? Wow.
Great..I have always wanted to date a hot Caucasian but I want to marry a Yoruba man..this guy fits the both criteria..guess am taking him home to mama..lol
what is so unbelievable about it, Linda? Aren't there Nigerians speaking fluent French, German, American accented and British accented English? Does anyone go around clapping and shouting for them? An oyibo learns your language, and suddenly, it is unbelievable?Nne,sorry, but this is colonial mentality :/
They have their blogs
i couldn't help but focus on his hat. pls for ignorant igbo people like me - subtitles plsssssss
I don't know what the fuck he z talking about but it just sounds cool and sexy
Lol @ title
See the effect of dating a Yoruba girl!
@ prism of a immigrant.VERY WELL SAID!
LMAO @ Olorun maje'n kuku obinrin! I too should start praying that Olorun maje'n kuku okunrin, amin!Linda do you understand and speak yoruba? I wish I had learnt igbo and hausa when i was in Nigeria.Oyinbo kilon le o! LWKMD!
Why is it a big deal that an American learnt how to speak Yoruba? Lots of foreigners speak Nigerian languages and we Nigerians do speak other countries languages. I am a Nigerian of Igbo extraction, i went to University in Mexico, have Diploma in spanish, learnt it within three months before proceeding for my major which is science. I read, write and speak spanish fluently. Yes we can congratulate him for learning the language or admire his determination but not worship or make it look like he did something impossible.
Wow! He teaches in my school! @ Rutgers U. I almost took him but they switched the prof when I took the Yoruba class. I wish I knew what they were talking about. I'm not yoruba :(
I dont know what the big deal is when oyinbo man speaks yoruba, and its nothing when yoruba man speaks english or french or any other language, and Linda even called him cute. Nar war oo
Yes he is cute. He's 21, btw. Here's how I know:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=21d8m-HP6E0&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL
Awwww their teacher taught at my school Airforce Ibadan.Go Mr. Mabayoje
Linda, this aint news. Here's real news for you 'AMAZING, Bush 9ja babe(Linda) speaks and writes English like a pro, even has her own book!'. The real question is...1. What's there?2. Why mention that he's cute, by who's standards....yours right? that mentality was what made us enter their ships the 1st place. What's really unbelievable is that you actually find this unbelievable...pity.
All i could say all through was;Olorun maje kaye wa baje o AMIN O.We are so enveloped by inferiority complex that we jettisoned our rich Language and culture for another mans...shame on us all if a white man could speak our Language flawlessly and we ourselves cant,cos we feel ours is second to theirs.Children of nowadays no longer speak their Language,well, not their fault but their parents who make them feel their Language is inferior and local to the Westerns.Some parents are so proud to annouce that their children cant speak their Language,infact they see this shameless act as a thing of pride.lets think about this,what becomes of the children of our CHildren whom we never brought up in our Language and generations to come,later no one would be able to speak in his own mother tongue anymore by the time our generation is gone,next generation,our culture and Language would be history?Children are being sent to school to learn English,the role of parents is to teach their children the morals and lessons embedded in their rich African culture in their rich Language.Aarghhh.im still very young in my 20s and im so thankful to my darling parents for bringing me up in our rich culture and Language; YORUBA,cos Mama used Yoruba to teach me English languge which is second to my own language.we all have roles to play,by His special grace my children would be brought up in my native dialect and still be the best in English Language classes like i did in school.
COLONIAL MENTALITY, HAHAHA!
@ Teju, why u dey vex na? Abeg, carry ur bad belle go. Nigeria was colonized by the British, English became the official language, so if Nigerians learn English it's nothing new and not that hard actually. It's actually easier to learn English.But, when you talk about dialect languages like Yoruba, where you can have the same spelling for same words but it's said differently because of the accent put on it. You can easily twist your tongue to say English words but as an English speaker to twist to Yoruba, it's harder. I am impressed. It's easier to learn other languages if you already speak a language. My latina friend lived in Nigeria for a year and speaks Yoruba fluently because she speaks spanish. That's why I don't get too surprise when some Lebanese speak fluent hausa.Asian language is another difficult one because it's so many characters. So, when i hear my naija brodas and sistas who speak Japanese or chinese fluently, I am very impressed. Kayode, carry go, you are a cutie. Linda, don't mind this useless girl.
Americans are known for learning everybody else's language. After all its the land of immigrants. You cannot graduate from any decent university without being forced to learn a foreign language. That being said, kudos to the guy on his fluency. There are a lot of non-nigerian women married to nigerian men who learned their husbands languages because their mother in laws couldnt speak english.
I met a Korean guy who told me his name was Olanrewaju. lol!
Welcome to the New Invasion. Steps to Conquest:Step 1: Know your enemy.Step 2: Think how he thinks.Step 3: Talk how he talks.Step 4: Know what he knows.Step 5: Observe his weaknesses.Step 6: Remove his inhibitions by befriending him.Step 7: Attack and Finish him i.e. Enslave or Exterminate.I would like to see all your gushing and salivating mouths in a few years time when they start writing in their history books that the Oyo empire was a kingdom of white people who conquered the native savages who lived in trees while they built up places like Lagos (a foreign name, mind you)and subjugated the hinterlands. Then they give as examples the white woman who has comandeered the Oshogbo shrine and the likes of Kevin whatsisname and Cara Harshman aka Titilayo speaking Yoruba. I hope you will all still be gushing and salivating then.
anon 10:21am....lolI see where you are coming from but there's also nothing wrong with admiration. Nobody is salivating. You can admire while you keep your eyes open. One of our biggest problem with Nigerians is we complain about everything and finally when we get some recognition we complain again. Even, if they mean bad, it can still turn to something good too. Let's also learn to appreciate....Good job, I'm impressed.
Omo dt babe wey dey wit d guy make sense ooo!!! I go like do am linda!!!
