You a freaking daft.

Your comment attracts response. If you make a good comment expect a good response if not you know what's up.

Yes it adds money to my pocket because I am celebrating my own, go and celebrate yours. Anambra made Phyno and not wawa land..lol

Phyno speaks pure Anambra and cannot afford to speak wawa for any reason. Most of you Enugu state people tend to speak Anambra version of Igbo language simply because your own version is horrible to the ear.

Nobody from your wawa had hurt me but I am only giving you the response your comment deserves. Do not feel bad nor take it personal but I am here to dish out the blunt truth. If it is paining you asswipe that we are celebrating our own then do the needful..lol

Get a life or get out of here. Hopeless insane wawaI.diot.

Baroba:


That's a mature comment, not the disparaging comment on Enugu dialect made by someone on this thread, you are correct bro.. My mum is from Ngwo, she is well educated and proud of her dialect..

A little history, back in the day Enugu (042, Capital) was seen as a town full of cultured and educated people irrespective of state of origin, it was more of an administrative capital full of civil servants , Students, yuppies, guy men with no money but a na adoga and small to medium businesses owners. Around mid nineties to early 2000, a lot of business men and women both legit and illegal started investing in hotels and the hospitality sector( joints, ebe a na aku), remember O' Neil, Polo, Mcdavos, bubbles, Hobbies, Nourisha ( there meatpie na die back then grin)etc even old warhorse Presidential hotel had a make shift club to tap into this booming sector.. With the proliferation of these joints and hotels plus the serene calm and peaceful nature of Enugu,
Traders,Businessmen, ndi na acho ebe a na akacatch fun, found Coal City a worthy place to escape the hustle and bustle of commercial towns such as Nnewi, Onitsha, Obosi on weekends.These guys came with what Enugu folks use to call ndi omata slangs, Omatas are seen as loud mouthed, uncouth, uneducated money miss road.. Girls are not happy to show them off but these guys are loaded and had no problem collecting your babe if you no sharp.. Then you will hear slangs such as, nna, one omata guy gbaji m aka meaning, " a rich trader don collect my bae" grin.. There slangs started becoming popular and was spreading faster than you can imagine among young people, you hear them in Campus halls especially in Esut and IMT, UNN was still fighting hard to keep there fake funne, but it wasnt long before they were equally swept off by this huge Tsunami that was Omateeee slangs..Back then you will hear phrases such as " gbalu ogwu nwuo, ifea last bus stop, Nwanne analie m, Nwanne parkia, friends asking you for a drink at a bar will say " Nwanne kpuo m isI akpulu Albert".. Girls are no longer babes, Enugu folks even started using the same slang which was considered derogatory or not classy to describe girls..e.g Nwa mbo, akwa nwa, akwa baby, umu, Nwa, so nwa, egovin, udala to recent one such as pino pino ,nnunu. The moment young musicians from ogbes such Achara Layout, Abakpa, Uwani, Ogui started infusing these slangs into their songs mixed with slangs coined and made in Enugu,the rest is history.. Raw, Flavour, even to current guys like Zoro and Phyno for me are the ones driving this whole trend. Zoro's current hit Ogene is typical of what's happening right now, a combination of Enugu dialect and bits from Anambra. You can even hear it when listening to Stormrex or some of Flavours songs..

If i see an Enugu guy man talking, whether in NY or London , i will know immediately..
These are my experience , from Ogui as a kid to Trans Ekulu i lived through it, i dont claim it to be gospel by the way.. Udo

Slow dog, Flavour, Phyno, Selebobo Didi nna men are all from Anambra, Zoro is from Agwu, Stormrex Ezeagu.. Enugu been an old colonial capital, former An am bra before states were carved out was a melting point, and is still is, for Igbos from different states, then you get Hausas, Delta folks, middle belt and small Yoruba population ( na them sow trado wear pass for Owerri road) Huge deposits of Coal meant lots of families moved to Enugu to work from other regions back them, there were no states back then, listen to Onuigbo by Late Osadebe, he told a story of Onuigbo, a man who went to mine coal in Enugu and no one knew what happened to him.. Anyway, apart from the hausas all of them mingle and see themselves as ndi 042.. I know a lot of Imo people that have lived all their lives in Enugu ( ndi ala wu otu) but hardly go to there villas, we usually give them house keys when we go for Xmas hols.. The see themselves as full 042 peeps and nothing more..Good times..

With regards to the topic, I have a healthy respect for Anambra folks, they sure have there sheer number of people na eme ofuma just like every where else..


Guy, you couldn't have written any better.
My self was not even born in Anambra but I started hearing slangs like Aroba/Alobam,nkolo/corner,asa/fine chic and the rest from my friends and cousins who lived in Onicha and I am also very familiar with my numerous relatives who lived in Enugu and these slangs were strange and novel to them.
Not trying to take anything from Enugu but lately I have heard Enugu guys lay claims to these slangs they used to despise and mocked the guys who used it...Like the case of a stone rejected by the builders.

Anambra arguably has the highest number of celebrities in Nigeria. When I say celebrities, I mean the top of the class celebrities of which Anambra leads the rest of Nigeria. I may be wrong or right if I say that Anambra produced well over 30% of celebrities in Nigeria. I will be uploading their dossier with pictures as we go on.
That's spectacular. You deserve an award for this. *clap for yourself* I really love the way you have shown how the Igbos are not united. I'm sure by now that you've read through subsequent conversations here which include name calling and abusive slandering. What changes if a celebrity is from Abia, Anambra or Imo? Are we not all Igbos? Kudos

"Celebrities from ANAMBRA STATE ONLY.

OP never said Celebrities in Anambra State.

Please take your time and understand it well. About 30% of igbos - be it Anambra or Enugu or Ebonyi or Abia or any other, are not born and brought up in their own state of origin. This brought about the argument u see above. Every tribe definitely have disparity among themselves

Enugu tries to defend their homeland celebrities as per say of that for Anambra, that doesn't make them (Enugu and Anambra) divided na

You don't just know what you are saying. When you see wrong information, will you keep mute or will you voice it out? Well, u might decide to keep mute because your are all united in your tribetribe grin

You should try and get the point that I am trying to make. The listing out started with Imo State then Abia State and now Anambra State. Don't you sense strife? Haven't you been reading through the comments? Folks are fighting already about which celebrity is from where. All I am trying to buttress is that it doesn't portray the IGBO nation in a good light.

This celebrity-state thingy started out with Imo State and Abia State some days ago before Anambra state. So you should try and understand why I got bothered about it.

Wawa dunce. The igbo version spoken in Enugu is the Anambra Igbo language. Why are you timid people always showing your low esteem and complex everywhere?

Enugu state people are known to be very local awlward people, it was even Anambra people that made you timid people to start wearing clothes.

Have you asked yourself why the original igbo Bible was written in Onitsha language? It means early civilization. Enugu state people are timid the same way your language sux!

I am not from Ogun state but no state can ever compete with Ogun state in terms notable personalities in Nigeria.
Ogun State is strong in political figures cue Awolowo, Shonekan, Obasanjo and the rest; in the area of entrepreneurs/ captains of industry, Anambra is clearly in the lead; when it comes to film, theatre and performing arts, the reference point is without question, Imo State.

Take a peep: Genevive Nnaji, Rita Dominic, Stephanie Okereke, KOK, Florence Onuma, Clems Ohameze, Emeka Ike, Sandra Achums all from Imo State. If a top 20 Nollywood Who's Who were to be conducted at any time, I am sure Imo State will provide, at least, 30% leaving the rest of Nigeria to scramble for the remaining 70%.
