Can you list a few similarities you've noticed between any two tribes or ethnic groups in Nigeria as regards to culture? for eg: Languages, norm, art, food, etc

Oka is corn in both Igbo and Etsako

Alobasa is onions in both Etsako and Yoruba

alubosa is actually a word imported from the hausa language. lots of exchange of words between hausa and yoruba's due to war and trade. an old but fading similarity would probably be emphasis of female virginity before marriage among all ethnic groups. there are a few similar chieftancy titles among the yoruba and bini people

makes a lot of sense that it is borrowed from the hausas. Alot of etsako culture is intertwined with northern culture

No cultural similarities in Nigeria if there is one we would have been understanding each other.
I would have love to have one to change my ways.
