  1. Igbo people rocks too…
    Igbo means Igbo… drug…
    No vex oo my people but that is the real meaning

    Hausa is a fruit eaten by the Yoruba people

    on the other hand if Igbo is spelt Ibo… it means ‘where

    Ibo lo wa …. where you dey…
    Ibo lon lo… where are you going.

    Igbo Kwenu…..

  2. What about Hausa? any meaning for them apart from Boko Haram?

    To me Yoruba has more meaning than any tribes in Nigeria.

    I’m proud to be born from this tribe… No tribe is perfect

    We are all one

    • I disagree with you sir… it is called awusa fruit not Hausa….

      I’m an Ibo boy who grew up in Lagos….so you can’t trick me ha ha ha..

  3. YES…AM A YORUBA BOY, MY ORIGIN IS OGUN STATE AND I LOVE MY ORIGIN (OGUN STATE). IN NIGERIA, EDUCATION AND CIVILISATION STATE STARTED FROM ABEOKUTA.

    PROUD TO BE A NIGERIAN BECAUSE IT THE GAINT OF AFRICA, GREAT NATION AND THE MOST FAMOUS AFRICAN COUNTRY ON EARTH RICH IN CULTURE (HAUSA, IGBO, YORUBA AND CULTURE FROM OTHER TRIBLES).

    PROUD TO AN AFRICA BECAUSE ITS THE ONLY BLACK MAN’S CONTINENT ON EARTH WITH LOT OF PROSPECTS…

    SO, LETS BE OUR BROTHER KEEPERS, BE PROUD OF WHO WE ARE AND PROTECT THE CULTURE AND TRADITION OF OUR LAND….

  8. Yoruba words are differentiated by the use of tonation signs\symbols which are usually placed on top or under the vowels; the signs determine how the word is correctly pronounced and interpreted in the particular context in which it is being used.
