But, is she better understand as Yoruba or of Nigerian ancestry or Nigerian born?

The term ' Yoruba" might have little meaning in UK society.

Thanks

Done a little Googling on Kemi Badenoch.

Her views on race and cultural issues suggest seeing her as Yoruba might be particularly problematic because she might not be living in a world in which such an identity has much relationship with her ideological positions.
