I don't know if you are refering to my handle but it doesn't mean food.The Nri on my handle is pronounced differently from how Imo/Abia pronounce theirs,which means food. Anambra/Enugu/Delta call food "nni".

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.

Enyena onwe gi nsogbu= Don't bother yourself.
Mana anaro m' elikwa anu ezu=but I don't eat pork.
Ehen,Olisa and Obasi also means Chukwu.

I know very well what the 'Nri' in your handle quite implies. It's spiritual, so let spiritual experts handle that.

It depends on the part of Enugu. We call it Nni in Nkanu.

For those of you who had requested for translation of Igbo words, these are the translation of the Igbo words posted on this page so far.

Please tell him


What of you? What's the meaning of 'Promoe' in Igbo?

odumchi: Ka m werekwa ohere a juo: 'Abagworo' o bu aha Igbo ka o bu nsu? O buru na o bu Igbo, gini ka o putara?
Let me cease this opportunity to ask: Is 'Abagworo' an Igbo name or a nickname? If it's an Igbo name then what's the meaning?

Eze Promoe:
At least, ima ihe 'eze' putara
At least, you know the meaning of 'eze'

odumchi:

Lol ehee? Ahula m ya kita. I maghi na asi Chineke ghoo anu, o ga-ebu uzo agho odum mana asighi m na m bu Chukwu o.

'Maruwene' ahu putara 'Maranwanne' o bu kwa ya?
Lol, yes! I've seen it now. You don't know that there is a saying that if God should turn to animal, he would turn to a lion first but i'm not saying that I'm God o

That 'maruwene' also means 'maranwanne', isn't it?


Eze Promoe: Ee!
Yes!

NB: Maruwene/Maranwanne means 'know your brother'

He's translating for the benefit of non-igbos. They asked for it.

Nwanna, I gbaliala. "Nsu" means "strange/non-Igbo language" and not nickname, by the way.

You don't have to blame me so much for that, coming to think of it the only meaning of nsu that came into my mind is 'stammering', so i thought much of it and then decided to apply guesswork.
