10 reasons why you should date a yoruba man…I know they’ve been waiting impatiently for part 3…lol

16 Jul

1. He has a sweet mouth so he’s good at d mills&boons love girls crave. He’s also good at poetry, composing cute text messages and writing love songs all for you!

2. All he needs do is visit d airport and voila!!! You have a man who blows correct americana that’ll impress your friends…

3. He loves drama so your relationship will be very passionate, pretty much hollywood and never a dull moment and when he does u wrong he doesn’t mind kneeling down with crocodile tears in his eyes till u forgive his poor soul.

4. He follows trends closely so if R-kelly’s singing bout being a flirt u’r in big trouble cos he’s gonna be cheating on ur arse but if Neyo’s hit song’s bout sticking to his woman you’r safe as long as it’s number one on d

5. He has swagger. He may not ever be a GQ model but his clothes will always have designer labels even if it’s ‘GUGGI or NIKE just do am!’ and he has d right shakara to carry them.

6. He knows that all u need in this world na mouth!!! He can bluff his way through anything including getting a table at an expensive restaurant without reservations or talking his way out of lastma’s grasp!!!

7. He can keep u and another woman happy at the same time. He may not be discreet about his affairs but he knows how to please his two madams, his dad taught him well

8. He’ll always correct ur pronunciation especially when it’s a hollywood matter so if u have a problem pronouncing ‘jimmy choo’ or ‘ed hardy’, he’ll come to your rescue before u disgrace him…

9. He loves partying and all d hit songs. He’s very current about almost everything and he has tons of friends so U’ll be sure that ur social life will be swinging and laced with plenty owambes!

10. When you’re dating him you’re also dating his 20 cousins and 15 family friends so if u ever get bored u can migrate to oko number 2…Lol…

      Congrats dear, I recently got engaged to a Bini man and I can tell you that where tribe is concerned one cannot generalize. I’m happy you got a man who makes you happy, regardless of where he is from!

      Hey. I am Dating a Yoruba man and we’ve been taking for 4 months now . he’s very out going , nice , loveable and he knows how to treat me . We even think the same and for me It’s crazy because it’s like he can read my mind . We’re not even in a relationship yet but he had asked me to be his girlfriend but I’m scared . because it’s too good to be true . and plus I’m skeptical about this ” sister ” he claims to have back at his house . I don’t really believe that yet . I mean I been to his house but not inside . he has asked me to go to church with him and a couple of his friends parties , and even a concert but these can all be cover ups . can someone please give me some insight . this man is to good to be true .

        Follow your heart gal you have nothing to loose but a lot to gain. You have no reason not to trust him. Give it a chance and you will not regret it .I know so. I am also dating a Yoruba man and we have been together for for almost 4 YEARS now and ever since I have not looked back again. Grab him before someone else does.

    Lmao this is halarious! These are reasons not to date a yoruba man atleast watch out for this things in your yoruba man. I love youruba men am yoruba myself and this is a full list of what the new generation yoruba men have grown to become smh it’s sad. But I will hope there’s still some good ones out there who truly cares, are respectful, don’t party much and are leaders and not followers of western culture :). Thanks for the post I enjoyed ever bit of it. Xoxo

    Hello I really enjoyed your post ten reasons why you should date a yoruba man. up untill yesterday I was dating a Yoruba man. I would like your advise on the following. The reason I asked for a time out is because I was falling in love with this man. I am under the impression he doesn’t feel the same way nevertheless I am confuse. This yoruba man has all the qualities I desire in a man. He treats me like a queen and adores my daughter. The problem is when conversating on the future his standard response is ” take it easy, don’t focuse to much on the future”. I am not sure this man has me in his future plan. To save myself from heartache, I’ve put the relationship on hold. Have I done the right thing?? I miss him so much.

    Confuse lady.

    • Neetah

      July 15, 2013 at 2:38 pm

      A relationship only succeeds when both parties are on the same page. If you are looking for Mr Right and he is looking for Miss Right Now, there’s bound to be a conflict of interest. Follow your instincts dear, wish you all the best and sorry for the late reply.

    • Jazzy

      September 8, 2013 at 12:56 am

      Queen ACR, you’re a VERY SMART lady! You did the right thing to distance yourself from a relationship with a man who discourages any talks of your future. Sounds like he may have ulterior motives!

    December 30, 2013 at 5:32 pm

    i am a American woman who met a yoruban man on face book. the strange thing about it is I found out by the similar names that his brother is married to my niece. we do have a age difference between us but we have been talking, chatting and phone chats for over 6 months. we are both born in the month of june, I have spoken to his mother and his son. I have fallen in love with him. his brother tried to discourage him from us seeing each other and will not even help him come to America. we are both students in the same pschyology major, and he floors me with gifts from Nigeria.. he is so romantic and I feel this is a good man for me. the only thing that bothers me is that his brothers mother in law keeps saying Nigerian men are the biggest liars alive…should I follow my heart?

    • Neetah

      December 31, 2013 at 7:16 am

      Follow your heart Gia but please find out as much as you can about him so that there are no distasteful future surprises. Also find out why his brother is against the relationship and the reason behind his mother in law’s displeasure. In essence, I need you to follow your heart but use your head, cheers.

    Yoruba people are really cool. I love the language, their food, and their culture! As with every other tribe though, there are some things that won’t be 100% but I think that each person and each circumstance is different. The reason why this list doesn’t really work for me.

    Hi Heather and all,
    I am an American Woman and have been with a Yoruba man for over 5 years and have tried twice for him to come to America. The first petition was approved however, I was involved in a terrible accident and I couldn’t fulfill my part on the petition due to me losing everything I have. God blessed me with another job which I have been working for almost 2 years now. We filed another petition in January of this year to them asking for evidence of why I didn’t go again to see him before filing. Even though I sent them all of my information regarding my accident, pictures and everything as well as explaining that my first responsibility was to my children once I obtained employment not to mention I as able to go in September of this year again to see him and sent those pictures and boarding passes etc, it was still denied.
    And do you know what? my Yoruba man and I are still together. Sure we both had doubts and even me telling him to find another when I was down and out but our love for each other is so strong we couldn’t imagine ourselves without each other. I have since just yesterday filed another petition immediately after getting denial of the other one.
    I can only say, if its true love and you both are seeking each other forever, then don’t sweat. I feel we have been through trials and tribulations testing our love and am excited that within 8 months he will be home and we can finally start our lives together.
    Glory be to God!

    Hello ladies,

    I just recently met a Yoruban man and must admit at first I was little leery, but the more we talked whether by messenger, SMS, or any other form of communication device, it has been wonderful..I trusted God on this one and know that he was God sent…From what I can see, he is very loving and caring. I have been searching for this man all my life and there he was..He didn’t waste anytime telling his family about me…He is already making plans to come down in February to the U.S. No he is not looking to get with me for a green card because I have heard so many horror stories on how Nigerians or any other Foreigners try to gain U.S. citizenship by using a woman…Well I can say this is definitely not the case…Anyhoo, I am looking forward to spending my life with this man and have never felt like this about any man..Ladies if you’re not sure, take it the Lord in prayer and he will direct your path…

    I am a South African Black woman dating a Yoruba man. Wow! what a thrill and pleasure. He is the most loving, most caring and most respecting man I have ever dated in my life. I love him with all my heart. Unlike other tribes, he adores and loves my kids notwithstanding the fact that they are not his. I have no doubt that he is indeed God sent. He is hard working and very faithful. I can call and cry on him at any time and he will always be there for me to help and comfort me. He is my soul mate my hubby my friend my everything. Do you think I will look any further than this? not at all.

    February 25, 2015 at 1:35 am

    I meant this guy and his Yoruba and his very good wth words. He charmed me soo hard I forgot all the guys who wr asking me out but he got a small baby girl and he says his nolonger together with the mother. Now I got this feeling that his hiding something to me. I have heard alot of Nigerian men using SA girls. We talk for hours but wonder if his not devious. Oh he is the cutest thing ever. Eish this dating Yoruba men its like playing Russian roulette, you may find a good one or a devious one.

    • Refiloe

      February 25, 2015 at 7:42 am

      Hi Gal

      I am a South African lady also dating a Yoruba guy. One thing I can tell you about is that they are very honest and can trust. My Yoruba man also has kids and I have accepted them and I know for a fact that he is no longer with the mother because he has said so and we spend most of our time together and not even a single woman has ever called him when I am with him no matter what time of the day it is. He leaves his phones with me sometimes and have never had any problems with other women calling him. Please do learn to trust him and you will have the best times in your life. I know it. I speak from personal experience. I will never look back and will never look any further. I am totally lost in his love!

    I met a Yoruba man on Badoo…. he kept on insisting that he is interested in me for almost 3 months….I decided to give him an ear And to God….I have never regretted…. he calls every night on video And he says he wants to marry me…
    He will be visiting Kenya in a few weeks….then I visit him in Dubai…he is a wonderful man….Very patient…very apologetic… true to His words….already talked to the Mum..I love him to bits…

    OK so I have a Yoruba boyfriend we are very cool. I’ve been to his house he takes me out he’s an honest person I trust him and he always tells me he loves me . but he always tells me that I don’t give him enough attention . Does any one have any tips . I don’t want to lose him 😞

    • diana

      May 24, 2015 at 5:51 pm

      Try learning his language and as much about his culture as you can, find out what his favorite foods are and learn to cook them. Play music that he enjoys when your around him, every once in a while dress in clothing that women from his country wear.

    July 24, 2015 at 1:00 am

    Well I met a yoruba man didn’t know he was at the time Untill he left me but he told me loved me sweet talked me.
    9months later we ain’t together am pregnant which he denies,he was married all along too,he very dishonest and I actually thought he was the one guy but nope 😉 all I can say is I can’t forget him either,he always on my mind lol we don’t talk at all.

    sad but most of all of these stories will end in heartbreak. i hope alot of these ladies wake up. Nigerian men, not all but many are master manipulators, if you met him over social media or abroad the chances are 80% something is awry. another thing to remember is they usually have someone back home. if you did ot meet him in your country where he is a legal resident with a decent living etc. the chances of a true relationship are low.

    many are just trying to secure papers/ money etc. keep your eyes open and your wallet closed, and yes people can wait years and years play the game to get what they want. watch out the cousins sisters and friends could be ” the wife”. have you met his family very important to Nigerians , if you haven’t insist on him, whether that is Skype or in person, if not what is he hiding, African men are very pro family . with Nigerian, especially one u met online/ social media/ men the risk often outweighs the benefit,be aware of cultural differences learn the language if you can, know that one day he will want to move back home. and mostly do your research as much as you can!!!!!

    hi everybody

    Am a young sa girl dating a Yoruba men …. at first I was running away from him for 7 months yet he kept on coming back ,and finally I told myself let me give this r,ship a try. Into the r.ship I found out he has a son which he didn’t tell me about and we had a fight about it and he told me that he was going to tell me about it and just never got the chance to do so, fine I overlooked it and asked him is he with the mother of the kid and he said no and I told him if so I will walk away and cut all ties with him, the story gets deeper in this year the child and the mother come to south Africa due to him wanting to see his son I wont lie I didn’t really like it because why must she stay there at his place … he took my calls everything made time to see me ….. but the thing that gets to me is he telling me that the woman still thinks they are together and in his country you cant just say you don’t want to be with somebody anymore and there is something that got them together which he is not telling me ……. never the less he has been going thru a few things in sa and I have been helping him… can anybody give me a clue of what is going on ,,,,,, he is a very loving men which I love as well.

    I have been involved with a Yoruba man on Facebook, he’s younger than I, I’m American. He expects me to help pay for his Visa to visit me. We never met. I sent some money but he wants me to send a lot more, I am not able to, he gets upset, We stopped talking for months, he has started talking to me again, I really love to be with him, but I asked to start over again Saving money and he said no but he acts as though he wants us back together, I say he’s punishing me. What shall I do, should I keep trying or let go? I’m really falling in love with him.

    • Neetah

      January 10, 2016 at 10:26 pm

      Monica let go, any man that gets upset because you couldn’t send him money is not genuinely interested in you and is only in it for what he can get from you. You deserve better

    • Refiloe

      January 17, 2016 at 12:28 pm

      You are waISTING YOUR TIME GAL. Move on very fast. All hes interested in is MONEY MONEY MONEY nothing else. Dont ALLOW him to make you his milking cow you deserve better

    I recently met a Yoruba man that has lived legally in S. Korea for almost 4 years (verified).

    He seems to be pretty amazing but I read all of the nightmares about meeting online etc. And I can’t help but wonder and I being blind.

    He has never asked for anything but my time online/ Skype.

    He says Iove you already. It’s been 1.5 months.

    If we go forward with this all and it turns out good… hard will it be to get him into the US? Is it better he is already out of Africa?

    Thoughts Feedback accepted.

    I am dating a Yoruba guy. I feel he genuinely loves me been dating for 4 months. He is here in the US but he also has a wife and 2 kids. I am confused if I should cut him off, friendship everything. I know God never sends you someone elses’ husband. The more I push him away the closer he tries to become.

      Hi Mimi , ypu’re correct. God will not bring u someone else’s husband. He keeps coming back? Don’t open ur door, nor entertain any conversation with him. Move on with your life and let God truly bring u a an woth no papers attached…
      God bless..
