Funnily, I don't even know why Egusi is debated when it's glaring it's a Yoruba cuisine. From the name/word, it's Yoruba. Igbo don't even have ẹ in Igbo vowel.

Not just this, The whole name is Yoruba etymology which has meaning only in Yoruba language.

Thirdly, Egusi has got several delicacy varieties of it by the Yoruba. Egusi oshiki, efo elegusi, egusi alapa, Egusi funfun, elegusi robo etc 💥 it's Orunmila favorite cuisine as a matter of fact.

Fourthly, it's meaning is in Yoruba language 📌

I mean anyone claiming it is being funny because it's got Yoruba written all over it. Lol.

It was even Ajayi Crowther who introduced several Yoruba delicacies to the Igbo. Some other missionaries also introduced some delicacy to the Igbo. That was how Igbo got their delicacies. All these were done to stop Igbo cannibalism of eating one another in the forest.

Do Yorubas get onugbu-egusi, azu-igwe and complimentary-goat-meat (since azu-igwe is goat-weed) and mgbam/akpurakpu egusi with achara (elephant-grass)? Do Yorubas get Deltan egusi pepper soup?
Again, you’re arguing with Probz. Be careful. I eat people like you up with pounded yam and a side of Wheetabix and a side of French toast with goose fat, quail liver and ukwa for breakfast. I can even use you for egusi.

That does mean it originated or the soups is native to the igbos.
Different tribes/ ethnic groups called it different names in their dialect don't mean they own the dish.
There are dishes native to some ethnic groups that u can't dispute or argue about. Soups like the atama, afang, editan. These three I just mention are undisputed native to / originated from the efik and ibibio people.
Ewedu, gbegiri is native to the yorubas. Other tribes have their own native soups.
Soups that cut across all ethnicity is the egusi, ogbono, oha soup, white soup, which can be prepare in a variety of ways.

Fair overall point but why are you now claiming oha? Where do the leaves even grow besides SE Nigeria?

Jute leaves (ewedu) reach as far as Egypt at least and are called arirala in Igbo (amongst others). Popular in Nsukka.

You’re arguing with Mr Probz here now. And I know what I’m talking about. You cannot use illiterate tactics to pull the wool over my eyes.


CALL IT WHATEVA U LIKE, EWEDU IS YORUBA.


ARIRALA IS JUST A NAME AND NOTHING, BECAUSE IT IS NOT IGBO DELICACY.

Egusi is Yoruba word with the "ẹ" sound which is found in Yoruba. Igbo adding bitter leaf to Egusi doesn't change anything. Yoruba do add any different kind of vegetables they like to Egusi which is called efo elegusi, one of the varieties of Egusi.

There are other varieties of Egusi. Point is Egusi has Yoruba sound with the "ẹ" sound and it's meaning is only in Yoruba language. It's the favorite cuisine of Yoruba ancestor called Orunmila. It's a Yoruba word. QED.

You no-get sense. In a land where we have onugbu, proper egusi soup and proper soup period, no-one’s terribly bothered with jute leaves and that’s a fact that stretches from Croydon to Toxteth to Greenville to Netherley to Enugu to Gorton to Nkwerre to Port Harcourt. Just know that Igbos have an equivalent, generally better-made, for ewedu, just like your versions of ogbobo (apon) and okra soups (obe-Ile-whatever) dey.

I don’t give a braised monkey’s where the name comes from. Ondo/Ekiti/Osun aside, Yoruba people do not know how to cook good egusi soup in the way other Nigerians know it thanks to Igbos, Calabars and Deltans. Call it egusi, call it egwusi, elili, gushi, egunsi, melon, whatever. That one is not even the issue. Not the one I’m interested in.

Re: Igbo Soups All Nigerian Tribes Enjoy by Probz(m): 3:51pm On Apr 02

Lol. I only stated fact though. Yoruba have Proverbs for Apon soup. Igbo couldn't pronounce Apon thus pronounced it as Ogbon which has no meaning in Igbo language.

Funny how some say ogbono means slimy while another says it means boiling. Lol. Meanwhile, slimy and boiling in Igbo language means another thing entirely. Boiling means "esi" for example. Btw, All soups boils, so why don't Igbo call every soup boiling? Lol. And that's not how boiling is pronounced.

Ogbon means nothing in Igbo language. It was a corruption from the Yoruba Apon.

Sources aren’t everything whatsoever (especially when it comes to African history) but, er … source?

Yoruba that has several varieties of it don't know how to Cook it? You dey craze? How do Igbo cook it when they cook it like the way they cook the shitty ohha soup? You dey craze? When one returns same insult, you will start to play the victim.

I’m not talking about Ondo/Ekiti/Osun varieties. I already know they do it better than typical Yorubas, but they’re an outlier. I’m already giving more credit to Yorubas than the average Igbo person. I know all about individual states and I’m still saying what I’m saying.

Imagine serving egusi-Ijebu at an Anambra function at Agukwu, Awka or Nnewi. As if Igbos joke with soup.

Oha soup might not be your cup of tea but people love it. That’s the bottom and top of it.

Also Wikipedia: “Egusi is the name for this across many parts of West Africa and it can't be attributed to one tribe or ethnic group. For the sake of peace and unity, I removed the part that claimed "Egusi" is a word from a certain tribe.” People forget that edits can be seen by as many people who wilful edit the page for free (i.e., virtually everyone).

Nifty edit, though, whoever did that.

Die if you like, EGUSI IS A YORUBA WORD, the soup may not originate from Yoruba land or even Nigeria as different tribes and ethnic groups across Africa have names for it but Egusi is purely Yoruba!.

Nobody is disputing the fact that you people can eat human as cannibalism is a thing in the South East but the bone of contention here is the fact that Egusi is Yoruba as everything about it from the alphabet to the meaning is pure Yoruba.
