Abia - Aba
Aba-Made products is more popular than the state. (even though Umuahia is the capital)

Akwa Ibom and Cross River = Calabar (Anybody from these 2 states is simply called Calabar Man or woman grin grin)

Edo and Delta = Bendel (Anybody from these 2 states is called Bendel Man or Woman by older people grin grin) and the otumokpo Jazz for self self protection from that area is called Bendel Insurance; their football team is also called Bendel Insurance FC, it was believed that when Christian Chukwu of Rangers of Enugu and Segun Odegbami of IICC of Ibadan takes the ball towards their goalpost the goalkeeper will turn to seven lions and the ball will turn to a big rock, Bendel people were really feared back in the days grin grin

what are we going to say about Delta where some cities are popular than both the state and capital.


Warri, Sapele, Agbor, Ughelli, Ethiope, Oghara, Ndokwa(Kwale)etc

In Ondo places like Ore, Owo, Ikare, Ifon and Akure are popular than the State.

In Oyo places like Ogbomosho, Sarki, are more popular than Oyo

In essence we can have as many cities that are more popular than the state itself
