Culture / Re: If You Are From Cross River Or Akwa Ibom, This Topic Is For You. Sosongo. by EmemJU(f): 6:28am On Jul 10, 2010

When I asked my uncle for a detailed explanation, he just told me that it is just a customary demand, and nothing else. I dont know if he is completely unaware of the fetish rituals that is involved in it, because I am aware of it. And you know that in our culture, an Adiaha, is not 'properly married' if an Okukim is not presented to the family. Some Christians nowadays choose to refrain from partaking in this rituals and will strike a compromise by just giving the girl's family money to take care of their business, without being involved in it. Not that it's confusing, I know my stance on such acts. Never will I partake in it, and for you, an Ibibio girl, who might be under the constraints of culture, it's refreshing to know that you are on the same wavelength as I am.

Those diabolical acts always have dire consequences

you are very right!! some people think that giving money is a viable option, afterall they wont be there to partake of it, but to me, i think since it's done in the person's name, it's just as if she was there, from experience, i make bold to say that an entire family can decide not to perpetuate such acts and it will stand, nothing will happen to anybody, my family is a clear example,
i called an aunt of mine on this yesterday, cos i had heard while growing up that it was done for her and her daughter got married last year and wanted to know if it was done for the girl, she said God forbid!! that the didnt do it, and that if she had known then, she wouldnt have allowed it do be done on her head. she went further to say that most times, for people that refuse to do it when the family demands, it is not any spiritual consequences 'anything', that it's just some diabolical people that conjure up those things that affect the ones involved and then of course, everyone will say it's becos they didnt do it.

God will keep u!!

Culture / Re: If You Are From Cross River Or Akwa Ibom, This Topic Is For You. Sosongo. by EmemJU(f): 7:54am On Jul 09, 2010

Yeah, I know that our custom mandates that an Okukim should be presented to the Adiaha's family when she is getting married. But what is the purpose? My understanding is that it is killed to use for native rituals with the belief that the girl, prior to her birth was already married in the spirit world. No way would I sanction such practises and no, I wont even partake in eating an okukim eron if I know of it. Parents whose first daughters were not married traditionally cant eat another person's okukim for fear that they will die.

exactly my point, it is an abhorrent fetish ritual (it's really 2 that's given, i hear, one is buried alive and the other is killed and eaten) that some people are still holding onto becos of their belief in 'consequences', actually, it's more like,if ur parents had at some point partaken of another person's daughter's okukim eron, they fear they will die if they dont do the ritual for their adiaha too, and it is said that they dont eat or even drink water in that daughter's house for fear of death (or some such ridiculous believe)

like i said, a lot depends on the parents believe, my parents never engaged in any such thing so when it got to our turn, no such thing was expected of us, it's good if u say u r a christian and u stand up for ur belief and ur family and friends know what bounds u cant overstep, then they wont even suggest somethings,

Culture / Re: If You Are From Cross River Or Akwa Ibom, This Topic Is For You. Sosongo. by EmemJU(f): 12:26pm On Jul 08, 2010

What's the purpose of buying "Okukim eron" to the parents of the first born daughter in our culture during the Mbip ceremony?

@ Ndipe - ah, ebi inam 'awa oduok, awa oduongo", ada uwa idiong o and if u r a christian and ur parents never partook in other people's own u can stand ur ground and resist, for my sis, our famil didnt even bring it up cos dem kno say, no way we no de dat kain levels,
but some insist and even get diabolical ontop it, it should be a fading culture,IMO, those that stil hold on to it are just trying to be funny,
they also say refusal to do it has some implications o, according to them cos for me, it's what u believe that works

@ Kojeiwa
people tend to generally categorise Akwa Ibom Girls/people as calabar, this stems frm d long intertwined history bw us and d fact that we r submeshed in CRS and only Carved out as a state some yrs back, generally, since we r of the same kin, why not

@ Poster
i take great exception to Adiaha Babes being xterized as trashy, Great Exception, it raised my ire

Granted ., there was always rivalry bw d three skuls, but i always thot it healthy
i really liked the post but that,

@ all my people,

Romance / Re: Is It A Good Idea To Hide Your Annual Income From Women? by EmemJU(f): 8:32am On Jan 29, 2008
methinks its necessary, the bible says the two shall become one, and if this is so, then secrets in marriage is dangerous, as already said it shows distrust and u know we, women, most likely if she doesnt know, she'l assume u earn quite a lot and of course would act on that,

sides, are u afraid she'l know u r spending some money somewhere else grin grin grin
