About Us

As a community of Yoruba people, we are set on attaining our goals and objectives:

  • Omo Yoruba of Southern California is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit federally exempt organization since December 31, 1997. Our address is in Los Angeles. Majority of the members live, work and own businesses in Southern California.
  • Omo Yoruba in Southern California is estimated to be more than 3000 people. When you include other races from Nigeria that speak Yoruba language and non-Yoruba speaking group in Diaspora, the population is more than 5000 people in Southern California.
  • Omo Yoruba in Southern California membership is growing in large numbers. Some members speculated that maybe it is because of the unstable political situation in the motherland (Nigeria). Whatever caused the growth we are glad to be here forming a united front to address the Yoruba concerns.
