Igbos are the most backward people in Nigeria vmbut they keep deceiving themselves.

I'm Igbo. Do they still do Osu? Look just go to church have your wedding and send them pictures with cake. They will accept the wedding. Finish.

GeeX:


I just pity Igbo ladies that would be rendered single for life cos of these negative traditions.

Same "Osu" guy will marry a beautiful and educated woman from another tribe or another country without issues or problems.

Marriage should be a personal thing, marry who you love, simple! If you like, use your marital life to please your kinsmen and displease yourself, na your life ooo.


If an Igbo osu man was Barack Obama’s dad when Obama was potus, will the Igwe in your village not kiss the Osu man’s feet just to have a photo op with Obama ?

Na when person never make am mad him Osu be problem. When you make mad money like Jeff Bezos it even small Dangote, the royals of your village will queue to kiss your feet

PAPAFEELERS:

so you still support this parts of the culture that is evil to humanity to continue to exist all in the name of culture.
just look at slavery and man injustice to man, classifying people as slaves ! it should even be the slave masters tat should be witchhunted because of thier past actions if we must go that way
This is simple thing to understand na, I said it can only work if he is the only one alive in his family but a situation where the parents are alive and he is not man of his own it can't work.
Some things are easier said and done online than offline.

what we call black American or black in Europe today comprise of some free and Osu igbo men and women sold during the slave trade. some are married with kids and grand children doing very well in their respective field of live without knowing the crazy history of OSU.

1. What has the Local God's in igbo land done about it.?
2.Abi the gods na only Nigeria(east) him get power. ?

Hi, I'm in love with an osu but my family forbids it. How do I convince them to allow me to marry him?
Hammergirl, I'm not Igbo.
But you better listen to your family.. That man is not the only man in the world. Another suitor will come.
Don't let desperation to answer "Mrs" blind you.
If anybody should "fight " and disobey family because of marriage , it should be the man and NEVER a lady.
When the chips are down, your socalled "love of your life" can shock you.
Put common sense above emotions.
Cut off from any man your family does not approve of.. irrespective of the reason.
Think Am Well!

Igbos and backward*ness, what is osu, in this modern era. Even their women are oppressed and not allowed to share in family inheritance. That is why Igbo women are usually the one who die in abusive marriages, because they will not be welcomed back home. It's so surprising things like this still exists. Igbos need to wake up.

It's the height of stupidity to talk about issues u have zero knowledge about. Shatapp

you can't do anything!...very painful truth...


Going ahead they will disown you for life...And even perform some traditional stuffs to back up the seperation....Even if they are core Christians, in issues like this parents usually remove their Christian garment to wear the real African traditional regalia.


Av seen two different cases, one was the guy's parents told him no, he went ahead to marry her...Sometime later his dad passed on.....3-5yrs later he lost his wife and two kids in a fatal accident.

The other case, he married a girl his parents said she is an UME..His parents banned him for life...He can't enter there house..or return to village..dude has moved to south south...I think he has changed Identity...

OSU and UME in Igbo land is a serious case o...Forget what these our digital high chiefs called EZE in Igbo land saying they have banned that practice, story they will still not allow their kids marry one.

Nothing like Osu again in Igbo land. Na only you and your family wahala be that.

Be deceiving yourself. If you are single, you can prove me wrong by choosing one OSU as your life partner then you will no that your family members still recognize something called osu
Re: How Do I Convince My Family To Allow Me Marry An Osu by Sterope(f): 1:47pm On May 04
Why would I buy a land amongst stupid people though?

The seller died because he was murdered by his village people. You should be looking for murderers amongst your village people.

The stupid diety that didn't protect it beloved community from the Whiteman now has the strength to fight.
