Look at this thread, you'll feel sorry for Igbos. They spend all their lives trying to play catch-up to Yorubas. That was how Shuna Ashebe wasted his life fighting Soyinka thinking it could earn him the Nobel Prize in literature.

These idiots on the thread are crying that AJ told the Queen that Yorubas are the largest and loudest in Africa. It is not the fault of Yorubas that Igbos don't have the opportunity to stand there and say that.

Igbos, listen and listen good. Your destiny is to be in the shadows of Yorubas. If you're smart, play a supporting role. If you decide to be stupid like Ashebe, keep destroying yourselves thinking you're fighting Yorubas.

Yorubas have a Nobel Laureate and no Igbo man can ever get that. Yorubas have won 13 Grammys and no Igbo man has ever been nominated for Grammys. Yorubas have the current heavyweight champion of the world and the current kickboxing champion of the world, Igbos can't even beat Kunle Poly.

Most of you Igbos are secretly regretting that your mothers did not get impregnated by Yoruba men. That's why envy for Yorubas is killing you. Yorubas represent a height you losers can never ever attain.

AJ is a real niggarrr anyday anytime twice on Tuesday morning

But good for him he didn't mention that egusi and pounded yam is for the yorubas if not i for get problem with that statement
Because egusi and pounded yam belongs to the Binis anyday anytime twice on their traditional festive period
Egwusi, modernized as Egusi is Igbo and for Igbo not Bini or Yoruba.

The two example didn't correlate with the issue at hand.

Brazilian are speaking portuguese as their general language because they were colonized by portugal,just like nigerians speaks english.

Again Brazilian are as a country not a tribe.

Okay...,Iget you now.

just as the Igbos would say "suya" which originated from hausa.

unbitchable:

true that. your ancestors ate roasted yam being that they lived largely in the bush before they met civilization. however, i'd forgive your ignorance borne out of illiteracy to have appropriated egusi to the igbo . Egusi melon is traditionally a West African delicacy which is not exclusive to any tribe.

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?
Re: Commonwealth Speech: Anthony Joshua Hails Yoruba, Egusi Soup, Pounded Yam by Ngozi123(f): 7:46pm On Mar 10, 2020
Dareal90s:

Oga deal with it, Egusi is an African word, u even want to steal d word, soon u will say Aso ebi is Igbo. If we shld agree with the result from google then d real owner of Egusi shld b Basque, y doesn't all translator detect Egusi as Igbo or Hausa or Yoruba?

Egusi is African, nothing can change that. Nd as per level of education you knw deep within u ain't a match.

I suppose that you'll also say that kilishi is also African and didn't originate from the North in Nigeria...

Btw, I don't know if you've yet to realise or not but I haven't been reading through your posts as they're all rants. What is "melon" in Yoruba? Do you speak Yoruba?

You Don't take corrections.we are Igbos and speaks igbo language.
Igbo language has so many dialect.

All Nigerians eat Jollof rice but it originated somewhere.

Most Nigerians eat ofe akwu but we know where it originated from.

"All Africans eat egusi" does not answer where it originated from. Its an Igbo soup.

Oga!

in my mother tongue(dialet), melon seed means "mkpuru egusi"
water melon means "egusi mmiri' and so on..

so the girl might be making sense.

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.
