This paper examines some social values among the Yoruba as reflected in selected proverbial sayings as the basis of some anti-social behaviour that pervade the nation. The emergence of many parvenus through dubious means is no longer questioned. The vices of such people tended to be justified by this sayings by contemporary users.
