You are a compound I.diot and a b.astard to match. There is a foremost king in Igboland who happens to be the most influential and most powerful KING in Igboland- Igwe Alfred Nnaemeka Achebe, the Obi of Onitsha. Accept the FACT or you go and kill yourself for all we care but the fact will remain.
You're an obtuse bastard! There's no "foremost king'' in Igboland. Your Obi can be the champion of your locality but not in all Igboland. Just shut your stinky mouth, fool!

Shove your gibberish into your a.ss. Why should an Onitsha man bother himself learning how other Igbos speak in those states you mentioned, when his own version of Igbo is the most sought after and other Igbos particularly from outside the state want to speak Onitsha(Anambra) Igbo because of how it flows? Even the original Igbo bible was written in Onitsha(Anambra) Igbo. Go and find out..
Like as I said earlier we are not interested in your village chiefs and elders. We are talking about the most influential and powerful king in Igboland.
We are talking about the king that people from within and outside pays homage for either political reasons or otherwise.
My advice to Anambrians in general is that they should take time and learn Igbo history from all parts of Igboland so as not to create unnecessary crisis in Igboland with blasphemous assertions borne out of ignorance.
Igbos are not from one source and don't even practice a particular tradition and that is our strength. The attempt by a small part to impose their own belief on others will only create disunity as we have on this thread. An average Onitsha man cannot understand Igbo spoken in all parts of Abia and Ebonyi States. There is no Ozo title in those parts but the ethnicity remains unquestionably one Igbo.
| Culture / Re: Obi Of Onitsha Ofala Festival 2015- PHOTOS by chino11(m): 7:57am On Oct 13, 2015 |
I don't have time to read your jargons. Obi of Onitsha is the most influential and most powerful KING in Igboland. Onitsha is the oldest city in Igboland. That was the place Ajayi Crowther, Sanders brothers, Mongo Park etc first visited on arriving in this part of the world. Crowther was at the time resident in Onitsha when he was propagating the word of GOD through CMS. Onitsha people were the first to see the Europeans in this part of country that is why even up till today they still the most educated part of Igboland, producing high profile lawyers, scientists, doctors etc
Eze Nri is understandably the custodian of Igbo culture but all those other kings you mentioned are inconsequential village heads and elders.
Igwe Orizu of Nnewi is equally very powerful.
Chino you can liar o. How can the Onitsha monarchy be more than 500years when onitsha itself is a young town? Even Asaba is older than Onitsha. For the sake of clarity let me outline the kings that the Europeans met in Igboland. Obi Ossai of Aboh(Ukwuani, Delta state), Obi of Agbor(Ika, Delta state), Obi Aroli of Onitsha(Anambra state) and Eze Nri( Anambra state). These are the ones I know with records that the Europeans met in the 19th century. Among all of them the one that struck the British was the Eze Nri. He was not to be seen any how. There's even a book written by a whiteman I've forgotten his name which goes by something like this: at last we've found the King of the Ibos. He said that because of the sacredness surrounding the Eze. The wealth of tradition at Nri was unparalleled all over Igboland and had no similarity else where. With this I have come to accept Eze Nri as the custodian of Igbo culture. Every other Igbo gets the respect that I'll give to any respectable person(those claiming any specialty because they are from Nri should take note). Without doubt, Agbogidi is the most Influential politically and a very powerful(note not the most powerful) is not in doubt. I salute him: Igwe I ga adi o. Igwe Orizu of Nnewi though influential and wealthy does not measure up to Achebe. I know that the Nnewi people will try to prop him up because Nnewi itself is becoming very big and developed but there are ingredients that Onitsha already have the Nnewi will sweat to get. Notice that no one remembers the Obi of Aboh any more. Aboh still exists in Delta state. It was that Obi who sold the Lander brothers to the Atta of Igala. He was very influential but today his throne is in ruins.
Now coming to all Igboland, I heard that the Abiriba people had Eze when the Europeans came but I've not been able to get any written confirmation. Arochukwu too I heard had a king but no confirmation although they had military leaders that led them against the British soldiers named Toti but what tradition was he known for? What are the rituals that he performs as is consistent with African kings of his time? Then, Jaja of Opobo is there too but I won't include him in this discussion. Note my writing is based on history of the existence of their throne and the influence it had both then and now. Majority of the Obis, Ezes and the recent Igwes are manufactured in the twentieth century(colonial Nigeria) and some even post colonial Nigeria. How can we call such people custodian of Igbo culture and tradition. Let's be objective please.
Udo diri Igbo nine; nsopuru dikwara ndi na achi anyi na mba nine mezulu AlaIgbo.

Eze Nri is the custodian of Igbo culture while the Obi of Onitsha is the most influential and populous within and outside Igboland.

Okija juju, is it because you are from Agukwu Nri? Achebe is the most influential and most powerful KING in Igboland.
I too was wondering..
Is the Obi higher than the Eze Nri? I think not.

Stop talking nonsense. It was Benin that migrated from Onitsha, and not the other way round.
Do u think Emir of Kano is more powerful than Sultan of Sokoto or Gwandu? I think u don't have full cognisance of English language because if u do, u will understand d meaning of "custodian". Obi of Onitsha might be influential but he isn't d custodian of Igbo culture. Onitsha isn't Igbo according to history. They migrated to Igboland. How then will a stranger who ccame from Delta area be a custodian of a culture that had existed b4 he came? Even Onitsha ppl can testify to dat bcs dey still claim they are not Igbo. Don't derogate Igbo heritage. Hence, I will unmask ur venomous derogary remark. Igbo may not hv kings b4 colonialism doesn't mean they don't h strong political n administrative system. Shalom

That guy is not igbo why are you insulting our own Onitsha people? Onitsha is Anambra and Onitsha is Igbo.
Lmao.....A true Onicha man mentality.
I tried to be a different person and be nice to these cowards who were chased away from Bini all the way to my father's land and we being our reasonable and peaceful people accepted your weak forefathers and blessed you with our beautiful culture.....Ofala,Igba Odu,Nze na Ozo. Nigga,Onicha man got western education first because of their location and used it to steal peoples land....When Akum Nweze Odogwu,Igwe Umuoji was still alive Ofala Okagbue can't break kola in his presence. You talk about trade but your people are not known traders nor blacksmiths....Just peasant farmers. Nothing special about you and your people....Flavour nabania ffucked your Igwes daughter and gave her baby and dumped her and he'll didn't let lose....An Onicha chic once wanted to be my second wife but I am not interested in polygamy. You need to shut d ffuck up and hide your face....A common Bini a.ss licker like you shouldn't speak when I speak,eediot! You borrowed everything you have today from land to culture to education and I bet your Igwe Achebe knows how to be humble before Anambrarians. I have never met an Onicha man who will disrespect me.....Look at this weak a.ss punk!!

The word Village head is too big. In Imo state, If I have excess money, I will just call like 5 to 6 extended families and I become their Autonomous King, or village head as you mentioned. In actual sense is more or less Family Head.

Shut up this dunce. This one you called a king is just a village head when compare to Obi whenever Obi of Onitsha steps out he will kneel down before the Obi.
Idi0t so the fact that buhari paid homage to this aba king also makes him the greatest king in igboland

Stop deceiving yourself. What are the names of those kings you are yapping about? Don't they have names? I told you that they are mere village heads that whenever Obi of Onitsha appears they will have to kneel down.
just 200yrs and u are here talking...it has really shown me u lack history..check out those kings i mentioned and when they have been in existence...only 200ys..smh
| Culture / Re: Obi Of Onitsha Ofala Festival 2015- PHOTOS by chino11(m): 10:40pm On Oct 12, 2015 |
Obi of Onitsha dynasty spans over 200yrs. All those Igwe you mentioned are more or less village elders because when they meet Obi of Onitsha they will all have to kneel down.
nna mehn.....hapu okwu..kwue ife doro gi anya
now tell me what makes him the most influential or most powerful...
and mind u that those once i also mentioned are great kings on their own and have longer history than obi of onitsha..is just that the obi of onitsha controls a commercial city.
google about the igbo kings and igbo history to find more

You daft is the one that will die untimely for not recognising your king. What you have in ohozara is a village chief, so its an insult mentioning your village chief where Obi of Onitsha is.
that is why you will die an untimely death cos you keep on encouraging lies and wrongdoings. Ugly lying baboon. Achebe is only recognised in igboland cos of the popularity of onitsha (his jurisdiction). Apart from that he is just as ordinary as the king of ohaozara community in ebonyi state. F00lish idiot like you. Go to hell
| Culture / Re: Obi Of Onitsha Ofala Festival 2015- PHOTOS by chino11(m): 10:23pm On Oct 12, 2015 |
All those kings you mentioned are village heads and elders. Stop mentioning them whenever you want to mention Obi of Onitsha who is incidentally the most influential and most powerful KING in Igboland.
thank you so much for this dear...if i had more than one like i would have given u..simply stated: igbo enwe eze.
most ppl.dont know this above igbo proverb is true..nothing makes obi of onitsha foremost igbo king...before now the igbo have been largely living amongst their communities with a king and council of elders just as onitsha is inclusive.think about the great kings of Arochukwu; Ohafia and Edda.
the obi of onitsha is just popular bc onitsha is a commercial city.
we just have ourselves as igbos bc we came under a bigger body called NIGERIA and our respective cultures in igboland vary greatly and we are somewhat heterogenous and thats why it seems the igbi is naturally un-united in Nigeria.
Though i rep obi of onitsha...he's a very well respected king

Dunce shut up. We are not saying because Obi of Onitsha is the most influential and most powerful KING in Igboland that by that stand he is ruling the whole Igboland. We are saying that he is the foremost KING in Igboland. All other kings with the exception of Eze Nri and Igwe Orizu of Nnewi are all inconsequential village rulers.
Nwanne this is the problem I have with some Ignorant and misguided supremacist amongst us. The authority of the Obi of Onitsha ends in his area let alone nearby Obosi and Ogbaru. It is even an insult to say he is the custodian of Igbo culture. The same applies to every King in Igboland.

We are not interested in your village chiefs and elders. Stop bringing up these rural heads here.
We are talking about the most influential and powerful king in Igboland that people pay homage from far and near for royal blessing.
When you compare Abiriba culture, language and Kingship with Onitsha you will understand why in the best interest of Igboland we respect one another and never try to assert ours as the Igbo culture when the next town is almost completely different.
Abiriba is ruled by Enachioken and they don't know what is ofala but have their own "igwa mang" celebrated by hundreds of thousands of people in different age grades yearly. You can see the clear difference in traditional attire between these two Igbo communities.

Stop your madness for once.
1. Obi of Onitsha is the most influential and most powerful KING in Igboland.
2. Obi of Onitsha is the only SE king that is equivalent to Emir of Kano, Ooni of Ife and maybe Oba Benin.
Accept these FACTS or you go and kill yourself for all we care.
MY FRIEND, STOP DISPLAYING CRASS ST**PIDITY HERE.
nobody is saying that he's not the most well-known igbo chief in the minds of nigerians.
any non - igbo will mention his name first before others..
don't compare him with emir of kano or ooni etc.
Those regions have always had kings, rulers etc......that's why the europeans loved them.....they were easier for them to govern.
Igbos never had kings....That's why Onitsha has never claimed to be igbo....they claim allegiance to the Oba of Benin.
Get your facts right pls.
