‘Animal! Beast! You idiot!’ The taxi driver’s following lines are lost on me because they are in Yoruba.

Needless to say his opponent does not agree, which the latter expresses in a language matching his counterpart’s abusiveness. The two happily insult each other for a couple of minutes, not minding holding up traffic on this back road in Surulere near Lagos University’s Teaching Hospital. Then they move on as if nothing happened.
