Why Are Yorubas Trying To Culturally Appropriate Igbo Cuisine? by Ngozi123(f): 8:05pm On Mar 10, 2020
Egusi soup is a dish that originates from the Igbo tribe in Nigeria. It's time we started appreciating each other instead of trying to steal from each other. Does anyone dispute the fact that moi moi comes from the Yoruba tribe? Or that Suya comes from Hausa people?

If you doubt me then please tell me what the name for "melon" is in Yoruba, Hausa, Bini etc.

Thank you.

Notice in the video how the Igbo husband refers to egusi soup as Igbo food and the Yoruba wife does not claim it for her own people.

I don't know where egusi is originated from.
It's not Yoruba.

So, where do you see Yoruba claiming it.?

And you are always enjoying the soup without asking the owners of the soup.

Lol, does it matter??

Please tell us (with documentary evidence) the year egusi soup was invented in Igboland. Tell us also (with documentary evidence) the year it was adopted from the Igbos by the Yorubas.

Most of us in this part of the world come from civilizations where we cannot say with certainty what was happening in the villages we come from before 1700, but we come online to drag ownership of things that certainly predate verifiable history. Are you all not clowns like this?

Is the egusi supply safe?

I don't know the reason for the thread.

Where does Nigeria get egusi from, and what's the supply chain?

There's nothing surprising about that, a peaceful disintegration of this country would not only end these but is a prerequisite for development. Awolowo called Nigeria a mere geographical expression created by the British for their own evil intentions and gain. He also said that Nigeria is a marriage of strange bedfellows therefore there's like a Nigerian just like you have a German or a Spaniard. A peaceful disintegration by each people voting to decide where they want to belong is the way forward.

Culture is a word for the 'way of life' of groups of people, meaning the way they do things. ... Excellence of taste in the fine arts and humanities, also known as high culture. An integrated pattern of human knowledge, belief, and behavior. The outlook, attitudes, values, morals, goals, and customs shared by a society.
