A video is making the rounds on social media that reveals the moment an Abeokuta man swiftly switches to his Yoruba Language during a live interview and by extension generated several reactions among netizens.
In the trending video, the middle aged Abeokuta man while being interview on the street could be seen lamenting over the hardship in the country using English Language.
However, the Abeokuta man who finds it difficult to express himself better in English during the live interview switches to his Yoruba Language and in return found it more easier to express himself as he laments the damage the new redesigned naira notes have done to the economy.
This comes after residents protest in Abeokuta, block major roads over fuel scarcity and Naira redesign that have caused low volume of money in circulation.
However, in the viral clip, one of the moment that captures the heart of most netizens was how the Abeokuta man switches to Yoruba as he uses his two hands to push the microphones toward the journalist.
Speaking in Yoruba, the Abeokuta man said, ” Ewo, a mo oyinbo so, pressure ti wa, maso Yoruba, ewo gbogbo, nkan shele ni ilu yi, pressure ti wa, eyin bo oh seso, ilu leh, e fun wa lowo wah, alo wo arowo gba, eh wa so wa di lazy youth, Mi o le loh ibi ise.”
Meaning, “Look I don’t know how to speak English, there is pressure, I will speak Yoruba, things are happening in the country, there is pressure, English is even hard to speak, there is hardship, give us our money, we have money, we can’t even access our money, you turn us to Lazy youths, I can’t even go to work.”

arionpearl: Normally Abeokuta people no sabi speark English.
jdm_qatar: This is exactly how karma works. Most of you were celebrating this naira scarcity, because you thought it would affect Tinubu… I remember how Tinubu was crying on behalf of N!gerians 2 weeks ago, begging Emefiele to do the right thing, but some of you were happy… Karma much???.
mimiwilfred_; I don’t blame you my brother. Speak your dialect. Who did English help. 🤣🤣🤣.
