The Yoruba people of Oyo Ile has a popular aphorism that pride itself in deep cultural pride of rich cultural heritage and originality of both the people and their culture.
The saying goes this: "Ajise bi Oyo lanri, Oyo onise bi enikan okan." This simply means that Oyo people (a term symbolically used to represent the Yoruba's) to demonstrate their hegemony (leadership, dominance or superiority) over any other peoples. They never copied from, or pretended to be anybody else but themselves.
In that same spirit, the Yoruba people also known, in their own language heritage, as Ìran Yorùbá, Ọmọ Odùduwà, and Ọmọ Ilẹ̀ Káàárọ̀-oòjíire step out in style in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex of Texas United States of America through their world class standard Yoruba Cultural Center.
