I don't know why igbos on this forum always refer to yorubas as ewedu and amala eater.
I guess,most Igbos must be used to Oyo state and are used to seeing people eat amala and ewedu with relish even in parties to conclude all yorubas are amala lovers.
The ones who never came down west rely solely on information fed to them by their traveled kins,whether true or not,they don't care to find out.

So, Egusi is an Igbo word? Pounded yam (iyan) is an Igbo food? Big clown!

Pounded yam is ji asuru asu in Igbo. We don't call it iyan, that's a yoruba word. But egusi is an Igbo word. What does egusi mean in Yoruba?

The guy is saying that his favourite meal is pounded yam and egusi soup, which is an igbo dish and you're saying this.

Just be proud of your people without mentioning Igbos, ok?
Who tell u Egusi is an Igbo dish? Go google Egusi nd educate urself.

All Africans eats Egusi nd most of the countries nd tribes in Africa calls it Egusi or a name related to Egusi, even Ghana, Togo nd so on. Yoruba's has been cooking Egusi b4 Igbo's migrated to Nigeria from Egypt where they served as slaves.

unbitchable:

iffa tear you hot slap. did your ancestors ever eat pounded yam?. egusi soup na general soup but ibo egusi is whitish.

My ancestors ate coco yam and cassava. Did your ancestors ever eat egusi? If so, why do they call it by an Igbo name?

If your ancestors were eating their own version of egusi soup before Igbo people were then why didn't they give it a name? Why are they going by its Igbo name? Are Yoruba people not more numerous and influential than Igbos in Nigeria? Then why are they using an Igbo name for their ancestral dish?

Stop trying to appropriate Igbo cuisine.

Guy,save your breath.
That person you are trying to explain things to is a girl
and she is wired to hate the yorubas
She calls every Yoruba here,yoro Muslim not minding if they are Christians or Muslims
She also calls Tinubu our lord,not minding most yorubas don't share the same ideologies with him
Many yorubas even openly criticise him
But to someone like her,it doesn't matter,all yorubas are bad
She was just goading you, to make you react so that she can call you names and insult you.
Pls,people like that aren't worth your time.

You see why the Nigerian education system needs to improve...

How can you say that egusi means egusi in Yoruba? cheesy

Egusi means melon seed in Igbo.
Melon seed is egusi in Igbo.
What is melon seed in Yoruba?

Ghanaians know that egusi doesn't originate from Ghana so I don't know why you are talking about them.

You can see ur education level is so low, even with the fact I schooled you nd asked u to browse it, u were adamant nd obstinate.

Now if you will refuse to educate urself I will, or maybe you don't know how to browse the web, I will do it for you. Then now go back to your grandfather and ask him where Egusi is stated as an Igbo word. This is what your fóolishness has brought upon you since you don't like reading.

Egusi is an Igbo word that means Melon seed. Check it on google translate if you don't believe me. All of this posturing is not necessary as all you need to do is answer these simple questions: what is "melon" in Igbo and what is it in Yoruba?

Why is it so hard to answer this question?

"Melon" is "egusi" in Igbo.

That's according to google translate and also my knowledge.

stop messing up woman....

Egusi soup is a kind of soup thickened with the ground seeds and popular in West Africa, with considerable local variation. Besides the seeds, water, and oil, Egusi soup typically contains leaf vegetables, Palm oil, other vegetables, seasonings, and meat.
Vegetables leaf typically used for Egusi soup include bitterleaf, pumpkin leaf, celosia and spinach. Typical other vegetables include tomatoes and okra. Typical seasonings include chili peppers, onions, and locust beans. Also commonly used are beef, goat, fish, shrimps, or crayfish.

Are you gonna shut up now....keep ranting it's an Igbo word.
