"Eko found the plane later on and burned it on a pyre." - I don't have access to the episodes ... but I do believe Eko burned the corpse and not the plane? Or am I wrong? --GunsmithCat 16:16, 20 October 2006 (PDT)

Charlotte Malkin

Should we add that according to Charlotte Malkin, Yemi gave her a message to deliver to Eko while she was "between places". this was in the "?" episode.--Masliquin 06:59, December 14, 2009 (UTC)

Updated Information needed

  • This article is way out of date. I didn't know what to nominate that for; so I nominated it for cleanup. Someone please do that; I don't have the time or the resources to do so. --David 19:45 01 November 2006 (PDT)

Is Yemi really on the island.

Yemi said "You talk to me like I'm your brother" at the end of the episode. SPOILER ALERT! He says this, for my best guess, is because the smoke monster, or the Man in Black, was posing as Yemi in order to try and corrupt Mr. Eko. The MIB can impersonate the dead.

But in the hut at the start of the show he says "It is time to confess. To be judged, brother." --MRNasher

Again, this was the MIB trying to corrupt Mr. Eko. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by CarrieLynn2010 (talkcontribs) .

So does this mean that the 2 visions of Yemi were different.. as if the initial one was in Eko's mind and the physical one at the end was something different. --MRNasher

I don't think there were two different Yemi's. I think they were both the MIB. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by CarrieLynn2010 (talkcontribs) .

I think not.. but it was interesting that the visions of Yemi seemed to lure Eko to the plane and then to one side where the smoke monster can kill him unseen. Why did it have to lure him away. Possibly because the fire failed to kill him while he was surrounded by friends.

Then again why did it wake him before setting the fire.. unless it only manifests itself physically while the person it is dealing with is conscious.

The other thing is.. is Yemi's body really on the island? I am thinking the body and very possibly the plane are not the ones from Eko's youth. Either the whole thing is an illusion or the plane is just a similar one that the monster brought here. The plane and Yemi's body IS ON THE ISLAND. They probably crashed there during one of the incidents in which someone caused a system failure by failing to push the button in time. Just as Oceanic flight 815's crash was caused by a system failure.


"You speak to me as if I were your Brother"

There are so many incorrect quotations of Yemi's final words to Eko. The correct version is the topic of this section. --Terryjb 16:18, 5 November 2006 (PST)

Location of Yemi and Eko's final meeting

Is there anything on here about this location, or anywhere I can get screens of the area? Anomymage 00:06, 11 November 2006 (PST)


I know this has been brought up a lot of times in the past, but I couldn't help but notice the "Tunde" surname has popped up again in relation to Yemi, in this article's character box. Is there any new confirmation that this was Eko's, and consequently Yemi's, actual surname? As far as I could tell, Eko's adoption of his dead brother's identity did not necessarily entail his assuming of Yemi's surname as well. The church he was seen working at during his first flashback in "?" may not have had any direct relation to Yemi's intended clerical obligations which Eko had set out to fulfill. And of course, since Eko had at this point been employing the services of an identity forger to provide him with false papers, there is certainly no evidence that "Tunde" wasn't an assumed, false name as well, one that has nothing to do with Yemi.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Boyen (talkcontribs) .


With the renaming of Eko, his brother should also have Tunde as his surname.--Phil (talk) 08:01, 15 May 2007 (PDT)

Rename Agree--TechNic|talk|conts 11:48, 15 May 2007 (PDT)

Rename --Nickb123 (Talk) 16:32, 17 May 2007 (PDT)

Rename: Just like every other page talking about a character they use their full name for the tittle where just using there first name makes it look like the odd one out. --Pacific Gilly 1992 14:12, 18 May 2007 (PDT)

Rename-I completely agree.

Rename --   Steff    talk    contribs    email   08:01, 21 May 2007 (PDT)

Rename -- Until it is proven his last name is "Tunde", the article should be called "Yemi" --Ivalum21 12:24, 6 August 2007 (PDT)


With the derenaming of Eko, his brother should not have "Tunde" as his surname, as I do not believe this has been officially confirmed by the show. If I'm wrong, please correct me; but otherwise, this is fan-speculation and should be noted in the article, not the title. Also, as an interesting side-note, not all characters currently have their articles at their full names; look at Nadia, for example. -Silence 07:21, 20 July 2007 (PDT)

  • Rename to Yemi: I believe the encyclopedic approach is to make the article name match what is listed in the press releases and credits: Yemi. -- Dagg talk contribs4 8 08:17, 20 July 2007 (PDT)
  • And if nothing else, going with the official name where possible helps avoid drawn-out arguments about which name is "better" in various fans' eyes. The creators of Lost, not its fans, should ultimately determine which names are selected. -Silence 08:24, 20 July 2007 (PDT)
RENAMED - I rename this to match with Yemi. This is the last time I am going through this rigmarole. No more adding Tunde please. If we find out its their surname then we will but until then, no renaming.  Plkrtn  talk  contribs  email  14:04, 20 August 2007 (PDT)

Why Is Yemi A Nappy-Headed Ho?

When Eko finds Yemi's body on the plane, his head is covered in patchy, but nappy hair. You'll notice he has close-cropped hair at the time of being shot (and we're assuming he died not long after?). Logically, Yemi's hair couldn't have grown this much unless he survived the gunshot, and stayed on the plane (for a couple of months), and then it crashed.

Unless this isn't really a thing we're supposed to care about. I don't really know. --Tman930 17:57, 25 January 2008 (PST)

in episode 5.04, this scene

Ben and Sayid meet Dan Norton in the police garage where Dan informs Ben that the charges will be dropped against Hurley and that he should be out by the next morning. When Sayid asks who Dan is, Ben says he is his lawyer.

dan norton identifies YEMI as the source of his info. is this the same man?

Yemi's Body is Back?

In "Because You Left", in the second Time Shift, we see John Locke searching inside the Beechcraft, and there was a corpse (Yemi, I guess). Then appeared Richard to have a conversation with John.

Later, in "Follow The Leader", we knew that the second Time Shift was in 2007, three years after Yemi's body disappeared.

What do you think? The corpse that John saw is the Yemi's Body, or not? --Despojo 01:23, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

Smoke Monster's Use of Yemi

It seems apparent that the Smoke Monster's motive for using Yemi's appearance to fool Eko into beginning the process that eventually led to the hatch countdown and release of the electromagnetic energy was to turn Desmond into the weapon that he thought would be able to destroy the island. It seems as though Desmond's ability to overcome the electromagnetic force is directly linked to his exposure to the electromagnetic force that left him butt naked in a field with the ability to forecast Charlie's death. His ability to subconsciously control this "power," however, was not fully realized until he made Penny his constant in "The Constant."--WeAllDieSometimeKiddo 02:27, May 25, 2010 (UTC)WeAllDieSometimeKiddo
