Yoruba Boys.

So some days ago I met this guy who looked like he just stepped out of one of the pictures above, the prototype destiny-changing yoruba boy that instagram and you momma warned you about. Sharp looking clean cut beard-gang member, white native (the modernized Agbada), fila (cap), designer shoes, lekki accent (rme) and general Lagos fuck-boy swag. 

I'd be honest I was taken aback, albeit pleasantly, when he chased down my car to ask for my number, I don't usually appeal to that type and that's been perfectly fine by me, because I really don't think I have the anointing to handle these high BP brothers. 


After he took my number he called a few minutes later to give me his and my friend gave me this Don't do it, don't go there! look. 

She said "Nwando it's not worth it, these yoruba boys are just demons; devourers, looking for hearts to break. Haven't you heard about them on social media?"

Well I certainly have but I've always wondered where this #yorubaboys talk originated from. Is this just baseless social media gab or are yoruba boys really guilt of the sins they're being accused of? 

With regards to my Yoruba boy, he's no Mr Right but in the meantime I see no reason not to have fun with Mr Right Now. *wink*. 


  1. I woke up one morning and started seeing Yoruba boys memes everywhere, I also wonder where it all originated from.

  2. me too am intrested o.wanna know y dey accussing dem.btw thelma I sent u a mail.pls check it,kinda urgent...

  3. I have always said I can't marry a yoruba guy/man. They womanize a lot and don't give a crap having many baby mama's.

    While this is so with other tribes. Generally, yoruba have a phd in this area. Same with their women.
    Of course just as there are many of these kind, so are there many decent ones as well.

    Each tribe gat theirs, Benue women I hear like to f**k, and would do u and all ur friends, rivers men cn dump their wives for other women, Benin men, lazy, Igbo men to non Igbo women, the fear of using you for rituals, and so on,

    No tribe is better, just find a good guy/girl.

  4. Ermmm, judging by the yoruba boys I've come across, and those I've been friends with, I'll say that this is 95% true. None of them was ever loyal to one woman @ a certain time.

    The only one I thought won't tow that path because of his overtly churchy nature married last year and I paid his younger brother a visit last week only to find out that he'd camp another woman in his younger brother's place for like 3 days.

    Funny thing is, this babe knows that he is married but still don't care. I just tire for yoruba guys.

    Sorry, typed this in a hurry coz I'm going to the pitch


  5. Ooops, I just met another one on my way to the pitch now and this one has 2 kids with a one yellow babe like this but has gone an impregnated another girl. Chai

    1. LMAO, Eesah you are not serious.

  6. Yoruba boys are not that bad joor, try an Edo boy (esp. Benin) then you will know Yoruba boys are SAINT..

  7. The "Yoruba boys jumping into your life and scattering everything" meme gets me every time. LOL.

    1. Lmao! As in ehn! Every time!!!!

    2. Lmaooo! As in ehn! Every time!!!

  8. I don't agree with you Joy oke dat Benin boys are bad.Yes,dere are bad eggs amongst dem but dat doesn't mean all of dem are bad.I will not generalise dat Yoruba boys are bad either.I have friends from both tribes and I have not had any bad experiences with dem.I think it's an individual tin and dis is d first time I am see these memes.

  9. I love yoruba boys o,d tall and dark ones

  10. i do not judge people based on a stereotypes but my mother, aunties even grandma have all warned me and gfs about yoruba men..ignored them because I am educated and would not believe a stereotype..after "getting to know " 4 yoruba men back to back.. i don't know why i was talking to just yoruba men...I had to wake up.. yoruba are a no no

  11. Haha like everything else - it's relative. I am sure if they sample guys in the east it will be Igbo stereotypes. I for one dont buy into any stereotypes - take folks for what they are.

    I know a lot of Good yoruba men who take very good care of their homes. Folks shouldstop using irresponsible members of society as a yardstick for others.

  12. When I was growing up I used to say and pray that i'll marry a Yoruba bobo.. reason? I love their tradition.. most of it sha. Now i'm grown and ready..i'm more cautious. From my research i'll say it's not just the Yoruba boys. I think the Yorubas as a whole are too accommodating as in anything goes... Dem no too send. Polygamy to them isn't a big deal as long as the younger wives are loyal to the first, they'll live in peace and harmony. You can also notice this spirit in their religious inclination... You can hardly tell the.muslims from the Christians. every yoruba family has a Cele/cherubim relative, a Christian relative, a Muslim relative and generally both christian n Muslims believe in consulting with a baba somewhere or an alfa or an aladura person and it's really no biggie to them, no one will bat an eyelid, same way they are accommodating to all tribes.. part of the reason why lagos is the thriving city it is today. I think it's just the yoruba lifestyle, it's who they are.. 'As long as it doesn't bother me, you are free'. Is it good? Well in some ways and not so good in other ways. So don't blame the yoruba boys, e dey blood. Finally I still have to say there are plenty exceptions. Thelma dear, that handsome yoruba bobo can be 'Mr. Right' not just 'Right now' and he will be the most faithful Mr. Right. Just keep an open mind jor.. Your case is different; Job 22:29. Meanwhile I still love the Yoruba tradition n naming system, my children will bear Yoruba names whether i'm married to a Yoruba man or not.

    1. Who is this anonymous... ? Damn!!!! I like her. Please identify yourself!

      Just the way I like to process situations... #spotOn

    2. Thanks Uyi. I'm Ng. Happy New Year.

  13. Ahan han

    No jor....Yoruba men are not that bad jor


  14. I dont understand the Yoruba boys stereotype too. I woke up one morning and bam! yoruba boys were demons.

    Anywaiz, the way igbo parents are warning their girls not to marry yoruba boys is the way yoruba parents are warning their girls not to marry igbo boys. Of all the men I've met and/dated tho, its the non-yoruba guys that hurt me the most.

    Anywaiz, we all know that with these tribal stereotypes there are always a million and one exceptions to the rule.....

  15. Thelma i see why you left that comment. Lol. I think its a case of a bad egg giving the whole crate a bad name.

  16. Wow... No respect huh!?

    You just come here and insult my tribe.

    I'm from Benin, I should expect that I would live up to this reputation or wat? Kai...

    Or am I?

    1. Hmmm... Wheresth thou cometh from?
      Knowest thou me enough to say that? Lol

  17. You people should leave my Yoruba men alone oooo....!!!! LOL! This memes ehn! Lmaoooo!

  18. Lols, thats strange. Even my friend in Yankee who meant to be dating one there too said she don't see a future with him cos of these same reasons on here...

  19. Lol,the memes cracked me up,it's not a tribe thing, it's general, we have such men in all tribes, the only difference is the rates at which they are.

  20. Epic memes.....

    I doubt if they are true though.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…


Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

One More Post...


He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…


I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Closed Chapter...

Hello everyone, yesterday a friend said to me, Thelma I love your blog, I've told so many people about your blog, I think you're a very good writer but I feel there's something you're not doing right"

This friend was the first person who won our beauty of the day contest back then in 2014. Then we had met just once through a mutual friend. I mentioned the blog to her and she became an instant reader. I wouldn't have exactly called her a friend then but yesterday as we sat down waiting for our Uber to come get us from Wal-Mart, she's definitely my friend and I knew she was coming from a good place when she said she had much higher expectations of my blog.

Me too.

But you see, in the last year or so, maybe even longer than that, I haven't felt much joy in blogging. It began to feel more and more of a laborious chore, one which I hardly reaped any fruits from.

I really love writing, I love sharing my life and my experiences with others and I've enjoy…

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!
