Hi, I'm in love with an osu but my family forbids it. How do I convince them to allow me to marry him?

This is why I said dividing this country is not the way forward, even among Biafra they are still segregating some as osu's, if Biafra can discriminate against themselves because of slave history of some of them, what makes you think the so called Biafra nation will stand if eventually actualized, it is just a matter of time before any faction will start agitating for their own nation from biafra because of discrimination. Black people still have a long way to go in terms of human civilization.

Though Nigeria needs to restructure to end Fulani's hegemony.

You will some people telling you go ahead. This is really a serious issue in ìgbo land though Christianity has come but you see this thing called osu is a very strong tradition. Am a victim my mom told me the consequences involved i had to back out, am not telling you to cut off but make more enquires because it still happens as am telling you now. It's really painful

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

Ignorance dey worry you.

So, how do you reconcile this with your “Christianity”? Have you now seen for yourself your Christianity is FAKE? Have you now seen for yourself you have no place in Christ? You can’t even take a stand and say that something everyone knows to be wrong is wrong. Later you’d be wondering why your generations seem cursed

It refers to some people in Igbo land whose distant ancestors were allegedly dedicated to one local deity or another for some reason. Funny thing is, they have acknowledged these deities to be false gods, saying they are now Christians and only believe in one God. The whole thing is beyond preposterous!

Lol. The Osu tradition can never die, no matter how these Igbos claim otherwise. It’s one of those things in life.

The same Igbos that are complaining of being Marginalised in Nigeria by Hausa/Fulani/Yoruba are discriminating against a people for the ignorant criteria that their Grandfather's father set. People cannot move forward because of Tradition. Tradition the say, is peer pressure from dead ancestors. Keep it up

Because I know it is FAKE Christians that cling to osu. What other principles? Spell them out for us. Here’s something posted for someone who wanted to know what osu is:

Ever wondered why you are perpetually being ruled by Northerners who have neither your intellect nor industriousness?? Ever wondered if your osu hypocrisy is part of the reason?

Osu was a useless discriminatory practice in ancient Igbo era, just like when twins were murdered due to some st*upid belief. We are in 21st century now.

Ignore your archaic mentality family and marry your love! They may learn from you if they're not deeply blinded by this Osu nonsense!

you talk like a child you think money can buy out everything if so some wealthy men or family would have brought themselves out of it centuries ago, while the more you grow you will come to understand that money is not everything.
