Yet another interesting Naija blog

She speaks the kind of Yoruba I would dream of speaking if I spent 3000 years of intense study and had also been born in Yorubaland; to hear her speak with someone of equal proverbial proficiency is to hear the most beautiful melodious music that human language has devised. She also has two lovely boys. Long may her voice echo into the universe.

Which prompts me to return to a familiar refrain of this blog: if only the politics could be taken out of culture and ethnicity in Nigeria, the world could begin to appreciate the incredible depth and richness of Yoruba, Igbo, Hausa et al cultures and how they have influenced cultural patterns far beyond Ng.
