I have a friend who hails from onicha-ugbo and does not discuss much about her town,
If you call her ''igbo'' she hates it, she simply says, ''I'm from delta, I am not an Igbo girl''
some other friends I met in that town too don't say nice things about Igbo people,
I'm a yoruba boy and I grew up to believe anyone who is not from yoruba and benin is Igbo,
What is the reason behind the confusion , My friends name are igbo and they don't like it when you
tell them 'Igbo'
Name like, Ngozi,Nnamdi, Nneka,Uche, Ikpada, Ifeanyi,
Their language looks like igbo and have igbo traditions,
At least, I hear them speak a bit of igbo(the ones i can hear) I also hear them yearning for thier own state.
My friends claim they don;t belong to the igbo, In fact, they don't like anything relating to igbo people according to them, But i believe to the contrary because i see them more of an igbo(except that they are not business inclined like a typical igbo people in lagos)
While I was there, I also noticed an arguement between a man from Agbor, trying to communicate to a woman from Onicha-ugbo. They could not understand each other's language, But why do some other people from Onicha-Ugbo speak and hear proper igbo language.(I mean the core Igbo)
What is the difference in these languages and these confusion,
I am now a totally confused yoruba man because I have read a whole lot abot these topic onlie and I a am now more confused than before,
Is it not like the yorubas, Oyo, osun, ogun, ondo,ekiti,
Why the confusion about the origin,
Can someone just tell me if delta, (onicha-ugbo peple are either Yoruba, igbo, or hausa, those are the major trines in Nigeria,
Which tribe are these people.?
