IGBO What Does Onye Akpu Obi Mean by Joshuaiwe: 9:52pm On Aug 08, 2015
I was listening to sunny bobo and he was saying Eringa o wu super woman then the response was o wu onye akpu obi then another response akpu obi ya di too much. What is an akpu obi person.
Literally I see it as some one who pulls the heart of chest? But it's obviously a slang

Akpu in this sense means muscle in Igbo.
Akpu obi -- chest muscles or well-built chest.
Akpu aka -- biceps/triceps/arm muscles.

Onye akpu obi means someone who has well-developed chest muscles/huge chest.

Similar phrases in Igbo are akpu nku which refers to someone who is strong i.e literally muscular all over.

Akpu can also mean 'fufu' depending on pronunciation.

Currently listening to 'Mandantin' remix by Jaywon ft. Phyno and mennnnh, Phyno killed his rap part. I'm stuck on replay since yesterday.

You need to see the actress, Chacha Eke Faani dancing to Phyno's rap part in the movie, Amuche The Business Tycoon. She killed it!!!!
