As the gatekeepers of party jollof, it would be a crime to talk about Igbo and Hausa mothers and skip our Yoruba queens. In this article, we’ll be sharing eight reasons why your Yoruba mother is an absolute babe.
1. Bussing food
Having a Yoruba mother means access to our national treasure, party jollof. They know how to cook up a storm and have built a global community of amala and gbegiri Stans that will drag my ancestors if I even try to drag it.
2. She teaches resilience
The relationship a Yoruba mother has with pepper, will teach you the art of patience as you try to get through one of her bussing meals. That’s why you can’t break a Yoruba babe’s heart. Their mothers probably soaked it in hot pepper before sending them out to the streets.
3. Party-ready everyday
As the real queens of jaiye, Yoruba mothers are always ready for owambe. From their flashy jewellries to their ₦50k_+ asoebis, a Yoruba mother is ready to outdo everyone at the party and break necks in the process.
4. She will fight for you
A Yoruba mother is the girlfriend every woman needs. While a Yoruba mother is always set to slay, she’s equally ready to fight for the people she loves. She’s the mum that shows up in school to flip tables when anyone touches her kid.
5. They give premium gist
If you’re having a horrible day, call a Yoruba mother and she’ll lighten the mood — well, except for when they reach for slippers to knock sense into your head. There’s really never a dull moment with Yoruba mothers.
6. African beauty
Just go and prostrate to your babe’s mother if she’s Yoruba. Tuface really sang African queen for a Yoruba mother, sorry Annie. Yoruba mothers have renounced any spirit of old age that wants to steal her beauty. She’s still set to put on her makeup as the gorgeous gorgeous woman she is.
7. Ass…ets toh bad
Apart from their beauty, Yoruba mothers are the definition of full option. Stop asking Yoruba babes what they bring to the table because you know what her mama gave her when she came, dear.
8. She oozes confidence
Yoruba mothers are dangerously confident and will change it for anybody any time. They walk around with the entitlement they deserve as queens, and teach their daughters how to show wickedness and pepper where necessary
If you have a Yoruba mother, you’ll know she’s very resourceful, especially with her slaps. If she can’t reach you from where she is, she knows how to turn any object around her into a weapon that must reach your head. You have to Stan a queen that takes initiative.
