Posted by Thandiubani on Wed 13th Mar, 2024 - tori.ng

According to the National Bureau of Statistics, there are 371 tribes in Nigeria.

 
Afrobeat singer Davido has made an erroneously claim during a recent interview.
 
He claimed that Nigeria has only three tribes, namely Yoruba, Igbo and Benin.
 
Davido, who goofed while hosting popular American content creator Kai Cenat, who is in Nigeria for a documentary, yesterday in Lagos, said: “We have three tribes in Nigeria. There’s Yoruba. My father is Yoruba. And in Nigeria, wherever your father is from, that’s where you are really from. So my father is Yoruba. My wife is from Igbo. And my mother is from Benin. I’m three tribes in one.”
 
Contrary to the Timeless singer’s claim, the National Bureau of Statistics revealed that there are 371 tribes in Nigeria, the majority of which are Hausa, Igbo and Yoruba.
