Education / Re: 20 silly Grammar Mistakes That Even Smart People Make. by somegirl1: 4:45pm On Jan 17

19. Peaked my interest
To "pique" means to arouse, so the correct phrase here should be "piqued my interest," meaning that your interest was awoken. To say that something "peaked my interest" would mean that it looked at my interest.


The emboldened is incorrect and contradicts point 3. A mistake, I presume.

Also, an argument may be made for the use of the word "peak" in this context, depending on the message one is trying to convey, since in verb form, "peak" is synonymous with: raise, increase, heighten, bring to a maximum of development, value, or intensity (intensify).

While the word "pique" is correct where interest is aroused or kindled i.e it didn't exist previously, the word "peak" would not be incorrect where some degree of interest previously existed.

they dont like going outside their dormain.....they are backward and simple minded.....

really jealous lovers i must say....

kind and welcoming people....they like to welcome others (except igbos) into their home but they dont like to go to other peoples houses.

all in all...they are nice and simple people.

I disagree. They have always intermarried with Igbo, especially ones from Imo.
A good number of them have Igbo mothers and/ or grandmothers.

Politics / Re: Thread For South South Igbos by somegirl1: 1:11pm On Nov 21, 2015

Ibos are NOT Niger Deltans or SS, it's like an ibo saying because he lives in Lagos or his parents gave birth to him in Lagos, he is a Western Ibo or Yoruba Ibo, how preposterous, low and desperate Ibos will go just for land, oil and access to the sea in an effort to enslave the minorities in the SS. For sure there may be ibos in the SS but they will have to migrate back to Iboland and leave the lands of the SS when or if war breaks out or Biafra is magnanimously granted by Nigeria. So, no shaking, you can keep lying to yourselves!

You know that SS is a zone carved from existing lands, not an ethnic group, don't you?


Culture / Re: What Is The Origin Of The "Yellow Skin" In Most Igbos? by somegirl1: 12:33am On Nov 19, 2015

My man, i am from Imo, my mum from anambra, i did my secondary schooling in abia, my university in enugu, i am well absorbed in these states. Imo and abia tends to slide in the dark skin/ caramel/ ebony than fair or yellowish. Anambra/enugu has more concentration of light skined/ fair individuals, ebony state is predominantly darkskined

Not from my observation.
Imo, Abia and certain parts of Akwa Ibom have more lighter skinned people on the average.

I still maintain a type of food tho, maybe some vitamins... I remember one Imo girl, her parent were totally dark skinned but she was light - like Monalisa Chinda light skinned
And it happens often like this with Igbos

plus the OP's narration of a full family of light skins

Mutation or a recessive gene. I've seen that a lot. Usually an ancestor would have been light skinned.
Happened in my family. I have two light skinned sisters. The rest of us are light brown. Apparently a great grandmother was very light skinned.

We were made that way just as some south african tribes are naturally light skinned without admixture. Even the dark ones among us usually have warmer hues with golden or red undertones.
The issue has been overflogged though.

Owerri zone is for IPOB. Any group not interested in going with the majority in IPOB can always choose the alternative - OduaArewanistan republic.

This jobless old man, focus on your useless and worthless imo state. The only horrible and unpassable federal road in the SE is the Owerri section of the PH expressway. Stop deceiving yourself here unless you want me to prove you wrong with pictures.


Statements like this are the reason Anambra (and perhaps Enugu) just might be on their own in the quest for their own country. You'll be hard-pressed to find an Igbo man from any other state arguing about superiority unprovoked (usually by people from a certain axis).
I don't care which southern country we join - Niger Delta, Cameroon whatever, as long as we aren't part of a dysfunctional country where religious war is imminent and the least contributors believe they have the birthright of leadership.
Nnamdi Kanu better check that he has the support of other Igbo states before embarking on what might be a futile endeavour. It is not a given that all Igbo groups are in support of secession at this time or led by him.

If you meant "Biafrans", and if by Biafrans you meant the SE and some SS groups, you are wrong. This would in fact be great news as there would no longer be any need to force a merger that doesn't appear to be working.

Stop chest-beating, over nothing, there is nothing like igbo Nollywood. We have d English Nollywood which came out of Yoruba movie industry (Nigerian Cinema) in the 1970s and later become Nigerian movie industry known as (Nollywood). Yorubas founded English Nollywood and Yorubawood. The real Nollywood is the Yorubawood

The Hausa movie industry started theirs in the Northern part later(Hausawood). We all know if we give igbo people an inch, they will go miles. That's exactly what is happening in the Nigerian Movie industry, music industry e.t.c in the south west

But for now, there is nothing like igbo movie industry in the eastern part. English Nollywood comprises all Nigerian Culture not igbo alone. that's why in a Single movie, you can see an Hausa man, Yoruba, Edo 's culture e.t.c

Until you believe yourself, you will not be able to convince others.

Oh I can assure you, my post wasn't to accuse igbos and leave out others. . Its a general Nigerian film problem but I watch all kinds of movies in languages I don't even understand as long as I see subtitles I'm good to go. .and most movies with Igbo producers have the biggest share of this low budget and generally lack of professionalism. ..at least by my observation . That's why you don't even remember the title of the movie you watched yesterday

You don't recall the names of movies but you always check names of producers and recall which movies are produced by Igbos compared to those produced by non-Igbos. Bravo.

Growing up I believed that only old people who probably find it hard to comprehend foreign movies patronize Nigerian films, true lovers of television rather watch American television cus they give the quality we demand from TV. How many young adults do you see watching Nkechi and Paul while missing out on the Transformers, Fast and Furious, Underworld, Avengers etc forget the fiction, Nigerian film industry aren't capable of giving us sci-fi and quality supernatural themed movies even if they wanted to

How many filmmakers seek graphic designers? use 3D? All because film producers don't want to spend money But in the face of all this, most igbo producers are fond of the lowest of budgets birthing low quality films

I hope you get it now

Where are your statistics from?
You speak poor of quality movies produced by Igbos when yorubawood movies are worse in every sense than mainstream nollywood movies.
