Yoruba is primarily spoken in Nigeria, where it is one of the four major languages, along with Hausa, Igbo, and English. It is the language of the Yoruba people, who are mainly found in the southwestern part of Nigeria, including Lagos, Ogun, Ondo, Osun, and Oyo states.
However, Yoruba is also spoken in neighboring countries such as Benin and Togo, where the Yoruba diaspora has settled. In Benin, Yoruba is spoken as a minority language in the southeast region of the country, while in Togo, it is spoken by a smaller population along the border with Nigeria. Additionally, Yoruba is spoken by some communities in diaspora, particularly in the Americas, Europe and other parts of Africa, where the Yoruba have migrated.
