Can You Marry An Ijebu Lady?

Let me start from here. This thread is not intended for tribalism nor ethnic profiling. I have various experience at hand. So many good ladies from the Ijebuland - intelligent, morally upright and all that. But unfortunaley as early as their suitors (or suitor's family) know they are from Ijebu. (Ijebu is a tribe from Among the Yorubas, in the South-West of Nigeria). Hey, that is the end of the relationship. Its a known fact that all other Yoruba tribes from Ibadan, to Oyo, Osun to Kwara despise an Ijebu lady. Any of their sons that marry an Ijebu lady is an 'outkast'. It looks like an epic stuff, but ironically its still much around us. So many 'myth' sorround this issue, while some are true (but could be dealth with) others are largely misconceptions and presumtions. This thread is meant to liberate the Ijebu woman and to open up other issues associated with it. I am proudly OKO IJEBU (My wife is from Ijebu). Guyz, I wish u can join me 'cos am enjoying every bit of it. Please share ur experience!

Marrying an Ijebu lady is signing immediately by yourself, your warrant of death, Ijebu Lady is a risk that is not advisable for someone to take.

Ijebu Lady = Juju Lady

If I wanted to marry a Nigerian lady, then yes, I'd marry an Ijebu lady. The tribe difference has never been an issue to me.

They're all lovely Nigerian ladies, and I don't differentiate them by tribe - I integrate them by the fact they're all Nigerian.

EWE SO DEDE EWEN I JEBU RE WA NIBE,

I'm typical ijebu man and i will never trade that for criticism as some people have already indicate here.

We ijebus are very intelligent and humble, the docility is apparent in our character.

for those who dislike ijebu should try and check themself up, they may be lacking what attain to calibres of quality people.

There is nothing wrong with Ijebu ladies since they come from different families and backgrounds.

I can marry anyone from anywhere in the world.

It's just a perception about Ijebu ladies that they don't stay in their husband's house and again if the hus is rich they might induced him to death especially if he's rich and not faithful.

they are prepared to kill him and get away with his money.

It's just what happens anywhere and not only Ijebus.

So if I see a beauty queen from Ijebu I will go for her.

well all of you thank you, so i can go and get married to my ijebu woman, what good news that would be for her, but i think the main think is not where you come from, but who you are, you are a product of your envoiroment so where did you grow up and who where does who brought you up and how do you see the world yourself, is how you become who you are, not where you are from.

My mother is one hell of a prudent smart intelligent independent, successful Ijebu woman. I love and cherish my Ijebus in general, talking of the women?. Independent ladies? yeah thats the Ijebus.

Although they can be mean, because they cant let anything stop them on their way to success! So you had expect a lot of biase comment about the independent and successful Ijebu woman. Their penchant for holding onto what is theirs is the only call for jealousy, the Ijebu woman wont let go of whats hers! So dont blame the smart woman!

Dont judge on stereotypes you could never go wrong with an Ijebu woman anyday anytime!!

That's why i have not said much. Judge a person not a group, our generation needs to rise above ethnic stereotypes and prejudice.

Back in the day our grandparents used prejudice and stereotypes, which people are repeating here to ensure the cohesiveness of their group. By demonising other groups they ensured that people married within the group.

In this day and age i don't really understand why anyone will allow prejudice to determine the way they relate to other Nigerians.

Olu, just thank your stars that you met a good woman of ur dreams and stop casting aspersions on other tribal women. As far as I'm concerned, there are good and terrible women out there in ALL tribes Just look for the one that suits you and thank God when you meet her.

I'm from Delta, but I married a Calabar woman, and I'm very glad, happy and fulfilled that I did.

ijebu ladies are the best i tell u.

most other tribes are always envious of them thats why pple ssay al the negative things

the are good entrepreneurs and really hard working and among the yorubas they are very similar to the ibos when u talk about business. they are also lovers of education.an average ijebu family has almost all the childen as graduates.

all those talks about parties and the lot are quite unfounded. i tell u.

You guys make me laugh. hayo, 100 gbosas for you.

Wen mo fo awon obiren Ijebu are the best. My wife is Ijebu and very pretty.

Let me tell you a true experience. I almost fought my family because of a Delta lady. I swore to disown my family if i was not allowed to marry her. Do you know what happened? A se omo girl yi o feran me at all. She didn't really love me yet she watched me fight my family. I later discovered that her mum didn't approve of me because i no carry moto kon dia house. Her mum wanted her to marry a rich okoro man who was in the USA. Of course she lost out. US guy ko, UK guy ni. Ewu Delta girls.

Suddenly, i went for my master's degree in UNILORIN and met the most beautiful girl on earth, an Ijebu girl who believes in me and trust God that the future will be alright. We got married and leave gloriously together in Abuja.

Ijebu man (me) married Ijebu woman and gave birth to an Abuja daugther. What a combination.

I have Ijebu friends they are nice.

I think this depends on the individual.

And generally there is an atom of truth in this tribal myths especially those that grow up in that town.

Come to think of this-

Anambra women- calculate money in your pocket by mere looking at it.

Mbaise man- you have to kill him first b4 killing a snake

Aba Ngwa man- eats human being

calabar pple- witch in korokoro eye

and many others,

That's the point i am trying to make - the enlightened ones - not just those that went to school, o. the ones that have disabused their mind of the cultural and tribal rubbish we are usually indoctrinated with by our parents/grandparents.

I spent most of my childhood days shuttling Ijebu-Ode (the Authentic Capital of Ijebuland) and Lagos. I'm not Yoruba or Ijebu for that matter, but I must say here that the Ijebus are among the best tribes in the whole of Yorubaland.

The Ijebus are hardworking, prudent and witty. They love and embrace education, that's why the second oldest secondary school in Ogun State, Ijebu-Ode grammar school was erected in their land. The late Chief T.A Odutola, the well known and respect business mogul was an Ijebu man. Otunba Subomi Balogun of FCMB is an Ijebu man. And even Chief Adenuga of GloMobile is an Ijebu man. There is a galaxy of other eminent Ijebu people whom I've been privilege to come across and relate with in the course of my sojourn in their land.

Marrying any of the enlightened ladies amongst them will definitely be a blessing to any self respecting guy.

I think i know this ijebu thing but the ones i meet are nice though. I lost my way and went to african briad house to ask for direction. Guess who i saw. The stored owner is from ijebu with her two daughters helping out to do womens hair. I asked them for direction and they helped me get to the town i was going. They were nice and the two girls even though they look tin and small, gosh, this girls are no longer teen but I still think they would be good wife so here is how i ran away.

I tried to woo the girls infront of their mom and it became a joky thing unti their brother came back with his "white" girl friend to give me a ride to the town i was going to. The two girlsgot into the car, Come see mouth split in the car, I bought the petrol just to compensate the driving but these girls became fire in the car. I could not talk again until I reached my destination. All isaidwas "thanksor theride" I still talk to them now anyays

I am an Ijebu man and i must stand to defend my race. Every tribe has one or two ugly myth associated with them. The Edo, Binis, Ondos, Igbos, Hausa etc. have their own share of malicious myth and evil stories surrounding their people.

The best answer to this topic is based on RELATIVISM. Relativism as a philosophical term asserts that "Their is no universal truth in the world".

Therefore whatever is tru to you is only true to you and may not be true to someone else.

An enlightened IJEBU MAN or WOMAN should not be bothered by such stories.

This myth/stereotype does not only surround the Ijebu ladies but also the Ijebu men. Other Yoruba sects generally believe that Ijebu people (men and women) are usually wicked to their spouses and they use jazz(voodoo) on their spouses. It's definitely a myth, or if it's a fact then it's an outdated fact because I know Ijebu guys and girls who are complete Ajebotas.

Wow. Does that mean it will be easy to find a nice Ijebu lady, since no-one else wants to marry them? Cool!
