Don't mind them. I don't know why it's so hard for them to appreciate Igbo cuisine.
As an adult, what i've learnt in life is that you should never expect nigeria to appreciate your product as an igbo person(esp. yorubas)

That hate is just too much to the extent they dont want any good thing to be attributed to the igbos thatz why they go alway looking for fake bad news against the igbos.

Lmao cheesy. All I asked was what is "melon" in Yoruba and you're giving me this long epistle. Someone else said that melon is "oshiki" in Yoruba. Can you verify?
you're slow. do yoruba cook your kind of egusi?. the soup is different to each other. I Know your problem, you're particular about the word "egusi". so, pray tell the origin of "egusi. let me set you a trap.

You do know that Igbos resided in parts of the Benin Empire, right? What does "egusi" mean in Bini?

We dont call it eguisi we call it melon soup

The benin word is ogi'


And the melon plant is from Asia brought to africa by Portuguese you will tell me if the igbos had meant the Portuguese

I am making sense. I asked my mother, who is Igbo but fluent in Yoruba (she speaks it better than most Yoruba people), what melon is in Yoruba and she did not say that it is egusi. I doubt the people saying that it is even speak Yoruba fluently.
your mother?. give her the damn phone.

my point exactly. it belongs to several people. And ewedu is oyo food. Every town has their local delicacy. In my village our major local meal is ekuru and eko (what Southsoutherners call agidi), not ewedu, even though all Yorubas eat it. And when u go to ijeshaland u'll see the pounding of yam from morning to evening everywhere. Same way u see amala everywhere in ibadan and oyo town.

You shouldn't talk factually about things u know nothing about.


Funny fellow trying everything possible to debunk me

To show yam is not even yoruba the yorubas call pounded iyan' which is called yam in benin


In benin yam is called iyan"
.
Pounded yam is called ema"

The benins took pounded yam and eguisi to yorubas simple

Love Anthony, he stands up for Nigeria, I’m so proud of that. Thank god the fake Pan-Africa brigade, who secretly despise Nigeria, haven’t gone behind our backs to trick him into calling himself "West African", yet are the same ones that would create music group that incorporate elements from all over Africa and call it Ghana Drums. wink
