You'd have to visit an African market. You can search the recipe online. The English name of the dish is "bitter leaf soup".

In his song "Uso Ndu", Celestine Ukwu said: "Ka anyi welunu ofu obi bili na udo na Ndokwa"; that's why I am saying that he is from Delta.

Thanks for the correction on Victor Uwaifo, I meant to say a different Victor who is from Delta. To me, it seems as if it just boils down to a matter of personal opinion. In my opinion: it's Anambra and Delta, while in yours it's apparently Imo.
Dede1 was very correct!

Celestine Ukwu hails from Abor in Udi LGA of Enugu State. The town is very close to the 9th Mile Corner of Enugu.

"Udo na ndokwa" he mentioned in his song "Uso Ndu" is not by any means referring to Ndokwa town of Delta State. "Udo na ndokwa" here simply means "peace and serenity", just like we always wish a departed soul to go in "udo na ndokwa"

these are by no means the best examples... but most people in this section will agree that this guy is dragging the section down. Not really because of his comments, but because sensitive posters always get sucked into an endless somali- Nigeria E-beef that has been going on far too long.

ever since i joined this forum in 2011... when this guy was under the username "elyas"

You guys have banned this guy in Different forms perhaps as much as 10 times, but he keeps making new accounts... i think you need to talk to seun and get an I.P ban for this guy... its is really gunking up the culture section.

odumchi: I have a question regarding Igbo music.

What I've noticed is that in the Highlife era (60s to 80s) Anambra and Delta were the "hotbeds" of music in Igboland. However, nowadays, it seems to have shifted to Imo (Bongo).

Who thinks so/has anything to say? And also, are Anambra/Delta/Enugu people fond of Imo music?

Do people even know what high life music is ? High life is first the way of life of a people and the music they play is the high life music. it's like hiphop where the lifestyle of the people is hip life and the hop is the blend and flow. The life style of the riverine people of the NIGER DELTA is what is termed high life and this word was first used in Port Harcourt which then was the only westernized or urban center of the region. Traditional music of the people is what they call high life. Just as Fuji or afro is traditional to Yorubas and THE IGBOS have their own traditional music. But this is not to say other people do not play high life music. Hip hop is traditional to black Americans but also played by different people...

High life is from Ghana...
Re: The Culture Lounge by Nobody: 5:23am On Jun 19, 2013
ezeagu: High life is from Ghana...

High life is a life style... The culture of the Niger Delta people is what high life is. The people are festival people full of funfair. Their funeral, marriage, chieftancy ,religion are all festival and its that life style they referred to as HIGH LIFE. The music they play during all their festival is what brought the name HIGH LIFE MUSIC. The cultural music of the people is called HIGH LIFE MUSIC. Below are websites that shows some Niger delta culture that is is termed HIGH LIFE and the original high life music pattern that every other tribe borrowed... It is the LIFE STYLE OF THE PEOPLE.

I don't agree with you. Highlife is a music genre that is found throughout West Africa. It was developed in the late 40s and early 50s when African artists began combining modern instrumentals with their traditional folk music.

In Nigeria, the Yoruba, the Igbo, the Bini, the Ijaw, the Urhobo, and the Ibibio all have their own brands of high life music.

There is no need arguing with people who only disagree because they hate or they just do not want to agree.. Hiphop itself is a way of life. . Reggae itself is a way of life .. ROCK AND ROLL itself is a way of life.. so get it.. It is the people who are in that way of life that play their kind of music borrowed by others... The way of life of the cow boys is rock and roll .. their music is rock and roll.. High life is a way of life.. HIGH LIFE MUSIC is the music.... HIGH LIFE MUSIC IS THE MUSIC OF THE PEOPLE WHOSE way of LIFE IS HIGHLIFE.. THE NATIVE word for the music is OWIGIRI. GOOGLE OWIGIRI and see the culture and see the way or performance and music line they play.. .The music we play during burial, marriage and every event is highlife music.. The way of life of the AKAN is not high life.. in their burial, marriage and other events, they play their traditional music which is not high life.

Let me play Devil's advocate. How could tiny Kalabari (which couldn't have boasted a population of 100 thousand in the 40s) have exported its music genre throughout West Africa? How is it that in the 40s and 50s, highlife was being developed simultaneously in many West African cultures?

Anyway, I googled "Owigiri" and the Igbo Bongo musician "Owigiri King" came up. grin
Re: The Culture Lounge by Nobody: 8:09pm On Jun 29, 2013
LOL yes we respect Bongo. he loved our culture and was one non Ijaws that took our culture and spread it. KALABARI is not the only Ijaw. High life is an Ijaw culture. Ghanaians who lived in Port harcourt during the colonial era took it from Pitakwa. Our ijaw music is called High life music. Its our way of life. ENJOYMENT and merriment. FUN and things. THAT is the high life.
