Yoruba People Are So Loud... You Can Smell A Nigerian From A Mile Away - Iwobi Boasts

Yoruba People Are So Loud... You Can Smell A Nigerian From A Mile Away - Iwobi Boasts

Alexander Chuka Iwobi

Fulham and Super Eagles midfielder Alexander Chuka Iwobi has revealed what he loves about being a Nigerian.

Iwobi stated this in a recent interview with Kiss Fresh, London, United Kingdom.


When asked, “What do you love about Nigerians and being Nigerian?” Iwobi replied, “You can smell a Nigerian from a mile away. Our mannerisms are so Nigerian, especially Yoruba people. Yoruba people are so loud.


"My favourite thing about the country is that everyone is so welcoming, rich in hospitality and it’s like one big family. Everyone who is doing well tries to give back to their communities. Every footballer that I am with always try to give back to where they come from. That’s an amazing thing.


“The first thing I do whenever I land in Nigeria and I’m in my hotel room, I order pounded yam and egusi.”


On his choice of Nigeria instead of England, Iwobi stated he respects England but feels more at home in Nigeria, adding that football in Nigeria is like a festival, stressing that the entertaining atmosphere in Nigerian stadia gives him a sense of belonging.


“I actually felt more at home in Nigeria. Football out there is like a festival, it’s like a party. You go into the game, you see people blowing trumpets, and drums, it doesn’t even feel like a proper match. I was like, ‘Yeah, this is where I belong.’


“Of course, I have respect for England but I have no regret in choosing Nigeria.”




Iwobi represented England up to under-18 level. He made his senior international debut for Nigeria in October 2015.


The 28 years old Alexander Chuka Iwobi MON is a Nigerian professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Premier League club Fulham and the Nigeria national team.


Iwobi began his career at Arsenal, making 149 appearances and scoring fifteen goals.


The Playmaker is expected to boss the Super Eagles midfield when they play South Africa next weekend.
