Actually,"deje" in Idenmili means welldone,while "daalu" or "deme" means thank you but most ppl interchange them, nowadays.

Nne,inwero nsogbu ma ncha.Translation= mama,you ain't go problems at all..I speak that original Anambra dialect that turns you on grin....Flavour and Wizboy has nothing on this bloke. As for Lucenzo,you will forget about him in a second....Bia nso kam nye gi obi uso.Translation=Come closer let me give you a piece of joy.....lol

Ogugua,these are some of the translations. But I must warn you so you don't get confused. I know you probably understands that Anambra\ Delta Igbo but couldn't write in it. However,you must remember that Eze-Promo presents his teachings in Standard Igbo,which is different from what I'm writing with.

Re: Igbo learning thread + Translator by Nobody: 9:36am On Dec 27, 2012
Lol, thank you NRI PRIEST smiley

My full name is Oguguamakwa. My aunt (my mum's elder and sole sister) passed away and I was conceived shortly after, hence the name.

Aww, sorry. I hate how some people have to work on holidays, especially Christmas. The world should stop that day lol. Hmm, I hope you don't mind turkey and ham, because that's what we have lol.


Olisa = Chukwu? I don't think I've heard that before.
Re: Igbo learning thread + Translator by Nobody: 10:03am On Dec 27, 2012
odumchi: Ah, a backstory lol.

Lol. According to mommy mu, a lot of people with that name have deep stories behind it. I've met two other Ogugua's and their situations were similar.
