Lol, I had to put a call to confirm that Umuakpi/Umuokpara is the village I know a particular Nwachukwu from.


Do you know St Francis? Opposite Ozor family?

To an extent, I know a lot of people in Nkumeato. I may even know that your crush. grin grin

Don't know St Francis and don't know Ozor family.

If you know Okoronkwo's Family, then you should know mine.

Anyway is good to see my people here, Wishing you a great day.

This is a very, very detailed piece.
Tradition is all we have and it gives me orgasms to see the next generation carry on with it.

My dear Ihitte-Uboma

Brings back long memories of when I visited Ihitte-Uboma for the burial of a friend's husband.
She couldn't freely receive me there so we managed to drive to neighboring Obowo, she was still inhibited so we had to drive all the way down to Umuopara in Umuahia where she gave me debbé as appreciation for the sacrifice of coming.

We almost crashed at '7-and-half' on our way back if not for God who cautioned her late husband and told him that he had no reason to be jealous since death had done them part.

Nice town aside from those SARS that always stay around Ishinweke waylaying AKTC and Abia Line buses.

Yes. Women do participate.

There's no specific age. We have about 3+ Local governments in IMO state that participate in this, and each of the LGA v'got different age range that qualifies you.

How do you know you've come of age? They have what they call "Umu Ebiri", that's age grade, once you've gotten an age grade, you are to wait till it gets to your set.

Its normally done every 2 or 3 years, depending on the LGA.

Thanks bros.

Baby124, I think this is a better explanation kiss

Lol. You are Yoruba, but I won't because you don't respect other people's tradition and culture, condescend so low like you to come for your tribe because I believe there are sane and reasonable Yoruba people, I mean people your parents weren't privileged enough meet which led to the drastically reduction of your common sense that would have let you know the importance of culture and respecting other people's culture.

Permit me to bring it to your notice that a Yoruba man(Davido) who every male in your lineage would wanna be like married an Igbo woman[Traditionally].

These are the kind of Yoruba people that matters in the society, not someone like you.

David is not yet married to Chioma.
