Media personality, Funmi Iyanda, has made a rather queer assertion that the average Yoruba man doesn’t have a problem with his wife sleeping around with other men. She said this in the latest episode of her Vlog series “Ask Funmi” where she spoke of the Yoruba culture and its bastardisation.
She said that the ‘Yoruba demon’ ideology was inspired by the fact that the tribe’s culture doesn’t consider having sex with multiple partners a sin.
Funmi said, “The original Yoruba culture does not consider sex a sin. It considers sex a natural thing. I will challenge anybody to prove that his grandparents and great-grandparents married once and one woman.
“The average Yoruba man wants to be like his grandparents, he doesn’t mind his woman cheating. Yoruba men don’t have a stringent ownership culture towards cheating.
“In the real sense of it, once you sleep with a Yoruba woman, you are her husband. If she has a child for you, you’re her husband, there is actually nothing like a bastard with the Yoruba culture.”
Her comments have been causing a lot of stir on social media, with many Yoruba people taking strong exception to her point of view.
