|Who Own Egusi And Pounded Yam by gregyboy(m): 12:28am On Aug 17, 2018|
It has been a matter of debate on the origin of eguisi nd pounded yam it is not of outermost important but history must be told .it is seen by men to have different origin .it is a well respected food in the southern part of nigeria but most people dont know the origin..it has been proven factually that that pounded yam(iyan) and egusi(ohue) trace its origin to edo state same as other soap like bitter leaf .it was documented by europeans when they visited benin this type of food and how they give it to thier gods in thier festival period ..the igue festival is a festival that celebrate new yam in edo
This yams are pounded and eating along with eguisi soup..it is believed that this food spread over other vassal state under the benin Kingdom due to benin influence it was a food that Duke's couldnt do with during festive period such as the igue festival which have different names in different names in different state

Trying to trace pounded yam down to a particular ethnic group would be a laughable venture. Pounding of yams probably pre-dates all the modern ethnic groups in West Africa.
Ethnic origin of egusi soup is perhaps possible to trace, but forget about pounded yam.

Igbo all the way
By the way,Igbo also own pounded yam,before the coming of the Portugese with Cassaava In the 1600s we were already eating pounded yam

It doesn't matter how u cook it .if urs is the d best it doesn't ulter it origin coming from elsewhere i guess edo had influence in some igbos state before d advent of d british i bet d onitscha celebrate d new yam festivals also with d aniomas in delta state .igobos have thier own indigenous soup definitely not egusi .religiously eguisi nd pounded had been offered to Benin deities over time nd it was prepared traditionally dats y benin has only 3 soup easily found in thier region waterleaf soup,bitter leaf soap,nd egusi

U make me laff egusi is no where igbos .igbos will be the list to ever claim it..everything called culture now in igbo is the influence of the late 18century to the present uptill the clothes been worn even to the kings who were warant chiefs even to the biafra as a word is foreign along side ur yam festivals to igbos .the only man in igbo land to claim it would be the obi who traces an influence to edo land wonder ur supiority with no good evidence ....untill u prove to me ur argument is baselss

U don't have argument on bitter leaf soap
The benin traditional food has turn to a general soup in nigeria the benin beads have turn to a general fashion in Nigeria no one care to even try to know or respect thier origin

No need to argue further is a waste of space.
|Re: Who Own Egusi And Pounded Yam by Toluobaeko11: 5:59pm On Aug 07, 2019|
I really wonder what other ethnic groups were eating if some tribes are claiming owner of all foods in Nigeria. Pounded yam is a delicacy in West Africa, not only in Nigeria. In my home town in Ondo state, pounded yam is our best food and we can eat it almost everyday without getting tired, but that doesn't mean we're the only owner
|Re: Who Own Egusi And Pounded Yam by michelz: 8:08pm On Aug 07, 2019|
Bro,you're very far from history ( no disrespect meant).
You just swallow anything the popular media hands down to you,hook,line and sinker.
What happened to the black soup and starch that is Benin's traditional soup?
How many indigenes of Edo state even know what is bitter leaf soup?
You guys are just too funny. lol.
|Re: Who Own Egusi And Pounded Yam by gregyboy(m): 7:43am On Aug 08, 2019|
As a mtter of fact i nevered disagreed on that.....
Bitter leaf(black soup) is as original to we binis just as eguish ...so stop misquoting me
|Re: Who Own Egusi And Pounded Yam by baby124: 3:54pm On Aug 08, 2019|
If you have to change the original spelling of a food to claim it then you don’t own it. Just like Boli is being called Bole. In a few years they will claim it’s from SS when it’s a SW street food. Lol. They just added stew and fish to Boli and changed the name.
|Re: Who Own Egusi And Pounded Yam by Fatherofdragons: 11:10am On Aug 12, 2019|
Not only did you claim that egusi soup is bini soup but bitterleaf soup (ofe onugbu) is also bini soup?
You even call it black soup, very soon now ofe ǹsàlà which you people call white soup will automatically become a bini soup.
We are watching
