You better don't worry yourself. If Igbos can claim Lagos as their ancestral land, they can claim anything in Nigeria.

Those who are asking if egusi is Igbo soup should first ask themselves whether the name itself sounds Yoruba or Hausa

Someone posted here on NL sometime ago that it's only in the Anambra and Enugu States areas that the word "egusi" is used as a term and NOT other parts of Iboland. There are different subgroups and dialects among the people now collectively called Ibos today.

For the records, ELILI OR ENINI are the original names Ibos used for melon seeds historically NOT Egusi (which indeed, is a Yoruba word that was recorded in the FIRST ever Yoruba-English dictionary published in the year 1843). As of 1888 when the first Ibo dictionary by Bishop Crowther was published, it had NO Egusi or Egwusi listed in it and subsequent editions. The Ibo Longman dictionary screenshot attached below ALSO CLEARLY indicates within the RED rectangle that the word EGUSI is a LOAN word got from Yor (Yoruba language). This is another clear evidence from an academic source with input from Ibo scholars such as J.C. Echeruo indicating the origin of the Yoruba word called EGUSI NOT the falsehoods being bandied around by some uninformed young generation of Ibos online.

The words Akuko (Cock in Yoruba), Okuta means rock (Okute in Ibo), Omi (Igalas also call it Omi, Ibos call it Mmiri), Egungun in Yoruba (Igalas call it Egwugwu), Iba (Fever), Ogun (Medicine in Yoruba) or Ogwu, Ogede (Plantain), Ifa (Afa), Omo/Oma both mean child in Yoruba (Igalas also call it Oma), etc, are a few of the words that are Yoruba in origin with just slight changes in spellings that can be found majorly in Igala language and some inflows into Ibo lexicon certainly took place because of the years of Igala interactions with the aboriginal tribes of what is now roughly Northern Anambra and Enugu States within the last 500 years.

Well, these areas of Anambra and Enugu State have indigenous Igalas too for over 500 years now and share boundaries with Igalaland in Kogi State, so, there has been an inflow of words of Igala origin into Ibo lexicon via Anambra and Enugu axis. Igala is officially a Yoruboid language with about 40 percent intelligibility with Yoruba language due to migratory fusions or admixtures that took place about 700 years between migrants (who moved along the banks of River Benue) from the Wukari area of Taraba State and a significant number of Yorubas and Edos in the Rivers Niger and Benue confluence according to the late Attah of Igala, Michael Ameh Oboni in a 2017 newspaper interview. This is how Yoruba words found there way into Igala language which also has historical relationship with the Idomas.

So, the claim by Yorubas that Egusi soup or the word "EGUNSI" came from them is actually TRUE based on the FACT that the word EGUSI was listed in the FIRST ever Yoruba-English dictionary of 1843, and through the years, the word found it's way into the Northern Anambra and Northern Enugu areas perhaps via the Igala landbridge from Igalaland OR through travel by Ibos who loaned it from the Yorubas who originally own the word Egunsi (Egusi) and also have eaten tasty Egusi soups for centuries.

Egusi soup (called obe egunsi/obe egusi by the Yorubas), and (ofe egusi by Ibos) is certainly a delicacy that has been indigenized among both groups, the Igalas, and indeed other Africans with different variations of cooking it with spicy ingredients.



@Sukkot, how's it going? You'll be interested in this thread.

Egusi is yoruba word, Egwusi is ibo word. yoruba don dey chop egusi centuries ago. Egusi does not belong to anybody, it is an african food.

Egusi, Igbo soup?
We like deceiving ourselves in this Country.
Must you claim everything?
People will start believing if we keep on quite about this.
Egusi is Yoruba, even your Igbo dictionary confirmed it.
Pls consult Igbo dictionary and check out for Igbo word for Egusi.
I come in peace.

Egusi are best prepared in Edo Delta, Yoruba use too much oil while Igbo make it without large fried cakes. Edo will fry it into large cake shape that one can pick with your poundyam or garri.

While in ibom it look like watery granules which cannot be picked with garri or akpu.
