"I talk definitively on the grounds that I am likewise Yoruba and I reserve an option to be Afenifere with any Yoruba bunch. That is on the grounds that my mom is a full-blooded Yoruba lady, a princess of the high position in Ilaro. I'm an Egbado man myself. My most memorable cousin is the Olu of Ilaro. I can unhesitatingly profess to be essential for Afenifere.

"All I'm attempting to tell you is that the Yoruba have not designated any of such characters to talk for the Yoruba race," he said.
