According to Benin accounts, Eko means a war camp. If otherwise, what is the literal translation of "a war camp"?
If you had a war camp, what are the historical accounts of the wars Benin fought in Lagos.

kiss the truth!



Yoruba man !!!

like I said before Eko means camp

Ekorame means camp of waters / camp in waters / camp near waters.


what is your argument ?

war camp in Benin is called Eko _ okuo

but there was nothing named like Eko _ okuo because all camp serve the purpose already.

what we have in Benin that has okuo on it is Okakuo meaning warlord / representative of war.

there are different Eko the existed in Benin e.g Ekosodin.

seriously I don't know your argument

stop it seem childish

else I will leave you

Hol up!!!... Your Eko is no longer "a war camp" but "a water camp" all of a sudden?. Y'all need mental evaluation.

kiss the truth!


truth be told I don't know your stand but I see that as no importance because I will just educate you but you continue I will have no choice but to leave u


Eko means camp
Ekoame means camp of waters

the war camp you are talking about refers to the purpose of the camp which is war and trade


nothing more than that


camps naming in Benin are done by the circumstances surrounding the area of the camp

It's in your dream that Oba of Benin responded in this manner. I'm sure you weren't born then.

Don't be pained, Oba of Benin gladly and historically accepted the Ooni's statement.

I'm sure you can't deny the truth that the earlier Obas of Benin had their burial tombs in Ile-Ife. The site is called 'Orun Oba Ado' till today.

You guys (Benins) are Ife descendants, that's why your late Obas' head were being taken to Ife for interment because we Yorubas belief that a Prince's head shouldn't sleep outside.



saying that the Oba of Benin gladly accept his words is enough reason for me not to talk more with you.

the viewers are my focus so I believe they will want to know the Oba of Benin response so let them search for it by them selves

Oba erediauwa of Benin thank you visit to the ooni of ife ( Aderemi) in 1981


please stop changing history for your own benefit

That's the logical explanation ...

But Tao wants to tell us that the land owned by the Benin and named Korame as mentioned in the text was borrowed from the Portuguese due to being referenced while the name that a complete stranger gave it is the original and unborrowed one even when it was referenced by the Dutch also

This Cross dresser is the definition of double standards itself

Maybe she wants to tell us that the Yorubas influenced the Dutch... grin

let her tell us the meaning of korame in dutch or Portuguese

definitely you expect someone to name a place with a word that have no meaning in his tribe

According to the French translation, it says that the Benin call it Korame....

Its not expected that the foreigner be able to write our word very well...

The korame doesn't have a meaning in Benin word and we don't Start words with the letter "k" and when pronouncing Ekorame, the "e" would be silent (Etrusen, hope I'm correct in this) esp if foreigners pronounce it. .

Now given the fact that Benin had more influence in Lagos(Eko)than ijebu, it's more logical that the Word Ekorame (camp of waters) given by the Benin was shortened by the Ijebus to eko... Thus Benin are the originator of the name Eko

Now if she says that korame was gotten from the Portuguese word curamo, its only logical that the korame would mean cure also in Benin as it is in Portuguese

An example of Portuguese word in Benin is spoon
Spoon means colher in Portuguese
Spoon means ekuye in Benin..

This debunks the claim that korame was a borrowed word


Samuk, areafada2, BornRicch



korame have no meaning in Benin

but Ekorame / eko_ame means camp of waters in Benin

like I said before each Eko in Benin were given the name because of the circumstances surrounding it e.g like what gregyboy said Ekosodin meaning camp of the Osodin of Benin, eko _ okhae meaning bachelors camp etc

the korame is a corrupted benin word just like Sakponba which was also corrupted from Sokponba. the corruption always come in as a result of the inability for these foreigner to speak the word

for example the first E in Ekorame is obvious when spoken by an indigene
but always silent when spoken by foreigners thereby making it sound as Korame

When I was a kid my old folks called Lagos : Eko, Ekoname, Ekoame, Ekonunuame. We understood all to mean camp.

Camp, watercamp, camp by the waters, camp by the mouth of water, actually meaning vast water body/sea.
It was never in doubt that these were original Benin ways of calling Lagos.

Korome would be in Benin as eko-name' meaning the camp of waters


Eko= camp
Ame=water
Na=the usual meaning of na

The camp of waters



that is the meaning of the word

but it's actually pronounce Ekorame not Ekorome

the word can be spoken in full as Eko ogha men.

( Eko/ra / me ) the "a" in ra came in because water is Amen thereby Removing the added "o" of Ekorome because "omen" is not water


the early EU'S that corrupted it to korame thereby removing the E.

Praxis758:




The late Ooni of Ile-Ife, Oba Adesoji Tadenikawo Aderemi, addressed the late Oba Omonoba Ereduwa as 'the son has come to greet his father' when Oba Ereduwa came to pay him homage as the newly crowned Oba of Benin in 1979.

That statement was a reference to the paternal superiority of the Ife/Yoruba history and throne to the Benins. I've not heard of any Benin historian or chief criticising that statement till today.

The narration that the Igodomigodos descended from heaven and has no ancestral tie with Ife was a historical distortion that started in early 1900s as written by one Benin historian.

Comparative history will help you bro. Stop being emotional and sentimental.




Oga keep quiet with your half written massage,


what was the response of Oba erediauwa when the ooni of ife said that word

you keep on saying only the part that please you

finish the entire story of what ooni said and what Oba erediauwa said.

So she hides her festishness in a culture thread already she is obsessed Benin takes joy and pride in subduing her tribal men in n the past

So she defending them, and also fulfilling are sexual fantasy is a win win for her

Oga nocomment2 you did a nice job and your works are commendable.


the word "korame" originally have no connection to any foreign word or whatsoever be it curamo or anything


the word korame is originally is absolutely a Benin word the was slightly corrupted just like some others words corrupted in Africa


the word is pronounce " Ekoramen" meaning camp of waters but with time the word was shorten to just Eko


so the word korame is a corrupted version of Ekoramen


in Benin today apart from Lagos Eko, we have different Eko for example Eko okhae meaning bachelors camp etc these Eko are named using circumstances surrounding it.


talking about lagos, it is only a totally pained individual that will take it upon himself to distort history even when it is clear to all that Lagos was part of Benin before the Brits came.
