Nigerian talk show host, Funmi Iyanda, has made some assertions about Yoruba men, women and the Yoruba culture.
In her latest episode of her Vlog series called “Ask Funmi”, the talk show host highlighted how the social media trend ‘Yoruba demons’ came about and what inspired it.
“The original Yoruba culture does not consider s*x a sin. It considers s*x a natural thing. I will challenge anybody to prove that his grandparents and great-grandparents married once and one woman.

“The average Yoruba man wants to be like his grandparents, he doesn’t mind his woman cheating. Yoruba men don’t have a stringent ownership culture towards cheating.
“In the real sense of it, once you sleep with a Yoruba woman, you are her husband. If she has a child for you, you’re her husband, there is actually nothing like a b*stard with the Yoruba culture.
“The modern Yoruba man is two-faced because he is finding his way with his identity and not his culture. They are life loving, party going and generally just satisfied with their wife being loyal to them.”
According to her, the modern Yoruba man struggles in between traditional Yoruba values and the 'oyinbo' principles.
“What you get are these young men who on the surface of it look like westernized men but deep down, they have these ideas of Yoruba ideas of what relationships should be.
“Deep down the average Yoruba man wants to be like his great-great-great grandfather. He doesn’t really mind his wife cheating as long as he doesn’t know.”
