Watch Video Of Mercy Johnson Speaking Ebira In An Interview - So Funny.
 
I have watched this video over and over again and i know some of you might have not seen Mercy Johnson Ozioma Okojie speaking Ebira Language. But here on this post right now i present to you the veteran Okene-Born actress while speaking at an interview during her first program as the senior special assistant to Kogi State Governor on entertainments, Art and Culture.

This program is the very first ever summit on entertainment arts and culture in Kogi state, and she seams to be doing greatly fine as she speaks her mind on how the program is going to engage Kogi Youths positively but the most amazing part of the story is that she said everything in Ebira Language. To me its my first time of hearing her speak Ebira Language do you think its not true watch for your self below.

Story: See How The Statement 'Ota Mi De, Adami Da' Caused havoc Between Ebira and Yoruba Friends.
One of the experience I had as a little boy that grow in Yoruba Land that I will never forget in my life is this story you are about to read please keep reading.

I sometimes think Mankind, in spite of our great divide in ethnic and racial origin, languages and culture, probably have something linking us together other than the fact that we are all God’s creation and regardless of the colour of our skin.

This leave me to depose that there is something fundamentally common to all of Mankind. And when I notice there are a
few words in most world languages that are quite identical in meaning and connotation as well as effect, I see a compelling reason to explore this notion a little bit further.

Yes. It is generally believed that most languages derive from basically the same source and that all human beings are basically the same.

The most intriguing of these observations, I like to share in this article, is the one I have observed between the Ebiras in Nigeria, as vividly captured in my graphic title to this article. ‘Ota mi de, Ada mi da’ is a classic to illustrate the point I want to make. The word ‘Ota’ in Ebira language means friend
whereas in Yoruba, the same word means enemy. By the same token, the word ‘Ada’ in Ebira means father, where as in Yoruba the same word means cutlass or sword. Of course, the word ‘Mi’ in Ebira and Yoruba simply means me or mine, and the word ‘De’, means has arrived in Yoruba but not in Ebira. Therefore, ‘Ota mi de, ada mi da Wave’ in Ebira simply means ‘My friend has arrived, where is my father’. In Yoruba, the same statement means, ‘My enemy is
here, get me my cutlass ’.
Can you imagine the cause and effect that the two statements may have provoked in two friends and classmates visiting each other during their long vacation in Nigeria?

The visiting friend was a Yoruba boy, and the
friend being visited is an Ebira boy and the venue was Igbole - Ekiti town, in Ekiti State.

There has not been any exchange of the Ebira popular mode of greetings which my friends used to joke, so much about, as a young boy growing up in Ekiti State as I played with my friends and age group whose Yoruba parents were our neighbours.

The words ‘Tao, wadahi, Akoro’ always feature very prominently in Ebira greetings.

But the observation I would never forget till
I die, is the story anchored on ‘Ota mi de, ada mi da Wave’ and the reactions or
responses it had provoked in the person making the statement and the hearer.

The Ebira friend was excited to want to introduce his visitor friend to his father by trying so hard to join Ebira with Yoruba, but his Yoruba friend had picked a different version of what is meant or intended. Of course, that was the end of the visit, as the Yoruba friend wondering what has gone wrong with his Ebira classmate, took to his heels, running as fast as he could, to get away from the looming disaster.

Those who argue there is power in the spoken word cannot be more correct. I think there is, without any question.

I drop my pen at this junction.

OPINION: WAKE UP CALL FOR ANEBIRAS; STOP EXPLOITING YOURSELVES, WE CAN WALK OUT OF THIS TOGETHER.
This is a guest  article from Imran Abdullahi, An Ebira Student from Bayero University Kano,

Economic Recession; WAKE-UP CALL FOR ANEBIRAs; STOP Exploiting Yourselves-WE CAN WALK OUT TOGETHER OUT OF THIS AND SAFER.


 There is no gain saying the fact that Kogi central in general and Okene in particular is the commercial nerve centre of Kogi State. But some sensitive and crucial aspect of the commercial business are left not accessed by the locals, for instance taking “OhuVariki” (Okene Central Market) as case study you will hardly find any Ebira man/woman either as individual or in partnership who owes any well-organised super-market or chain store. Though our friendliness and hospitality to non-natives is second to none but it doesn’t add up to leave a crucial and all-important segment of commercial business to a particular group of people who can ganged up, monopolizes the business, sabotage the system, exploit the populace (mostly the locals) and finally make life unbearable and unenjoyably to the natives but to the benefit of themselves (the exploitative non-natives business men/women).

    Though there is a general notion or myth that there is certain or particular branch of trade in which the natives (Anebiras) cannot strive on especially the Igbo dominated businesses or the palm oil business dominated by our Igalla women and other services rendered by non-natives (Yorubas, Hausas, etc) which I stand to dismissed irrespective of the reasons ascribed to it. This particular myth is against the general rule of any business; all what is required of any serious enterprising business person is to study the rules (in and out of the business) learn from the successes and failures of the people in the business, get a good location and you are good to go.

    If you don’t start it now, no one will, this is the permanent solution as we struggle for temporary relief, break that chain now and give us your success story soon.
Unsympathetic Associations Ganged-Up:-

It is incomprehensible how Okada Riders Association Kogi Central branch suddenly wake up and increased the price of their services without any increase in cost of production (no increase in fuel price) or any other substantial increase in working expenses; in spite of the recession it remains unexplainable how a short trip (per drop) within the town will cost N80 irrespective of your destination or even higher if farther. It remains equally unexplainable in spite of this lingering recession why the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) Kogi Central Chapter without taking into consideration the plight of the people defiantly and astronomically  increase fare (transport) especially within the locality with no option of bargain whatsoever.

    Again unnecessary hiking of price is not the answer; if you increase yours and I increase mine in return we may all lose and life will be uneasy for everybody but if you lessen yours and I reciprocate too we will surely all win without intensely feeling this harsh economic condition. Again if you don’t start it now no one will.

What Is The Meaning Of Okene? See Why Okene Town Is Called Okene
 
I know you have been looking forward to know the true meaning of Okene. One way or the other tried to get a meaning from the word Okene, but you couldn't. Well you are not alone I tried my best In making a sensible meaning from it myself but all effort to no avail.

This got me up to seek my elder ones as often, I met my Uncle and he made things clear to me about the real meaning of Okene, so I decided to get it up to you on Ebiraland.com Media you know I always care.

Let's start the lecture;

Okene is derived from two Ebira words Okooro and Une. Confusing right? Don't worry I will make everything clear.

Have you ever heard anyone say Okorune before?

Okooro means Environment and Une in the Okene means a bush animal called Une, just like the antelope. Are you getting it now? Its noted that Ebira hunters used to come to the present Okene to hunt the animal called Une because in that environment they are dominant. So they named the area after the bush animal they used to hunt in the area. Before it turned into a resident environment where part of Ebira's reside presently.

Now the intonation of Ebira people is changing everyday that's why you see Okorune gradually changed to Okerune and finally to Okene.

So in a true sense Okene is said to mean Okorune Meaning in English is Environment of the bush animal called Une in Ebira.

This all I have got for now! I will update it later when I get get hold of extra meaning. Drop your comment below and please share with your friends below by locating the share buttons below. Thanks For Reading.

Over 60 percent of Ebira Women Are Independent: Ebiraland.com Media
As some will say kitchen assignment is enough for all married women, reverse is the case with Ebira Women. My Findings (Ebiraland.com Media), shows that

Ebira Women are 10 times Hard Working than the Men, and more of them are on their own with their Children.


A. Very Good example is is the Kogi State Governors First wife (not the Kogi State First Lady) she's a. Very hard working woman that's the reason the Governor can be so confident to put her in charge of a Multimillion naira business.

The result of my findings in the street of Okene, Kuroko, Inoziomi, Ogaminana,Nagazi, and Ihima; shows that most of Ebira Women are Divorced and have to one

way or the other take care of their children and sponsor them.

I came to find out that out of 100% of Ebira Women out their, they fell under three categories namely 1. Full House Wife, 2. Maried but not so dependent, 3.

Independent.:-

  • 20% are full House Wife: these Women are main assignments are domestic assignment so they don't have Job they are full house wife.

  • 20% are Married but not so dependent: out of this 20 percent 10 percent are not dependent wile the remaining 10 are this categories are supporters of the

husband.

  • 60% Are Independent and Divorce : This category of Ebira women are the main reason of this article; this category have to cater for their Children and their

selves, they are Independent and crazily workaholic.

With my findings above Divorce is clearly noted in Ebiraland why is this common in Ebiraland is what I am working on. To be candid divorce this days is

spreading like a bush fire" this is one the things that pushed me into writing applications to some notable women in Ebiraland as a request for an interview

Joke: Ebira Mothers And The Beauty Of Their Slaps In Child Upbringing.
 
Ebira Mothers (Ebira Women) are one of the best when it comes to child upbringing. Ebira Mothers produce the best range of slaps; Aruhwoto, Aruhwe, And Upono. These slaps will make you fill like you are not part of the family like you are adopted.
  • Aruhwoto: This slap will make you correct your wrongs instantly. And also make you confess your sins at the spot with immediate effect.
  • Aruhwe: This kind of Slap will make you expose those who were in the crime with you without hesitation at the same time, if any of your. Siblings is been given Aruhwe and you are not strong enough you may pee in your new pant at the hearing of the sound of the Slap. Its popularly given to children in their back.
I remembered when my Big Brother send me to Mamas pot to steal meat. When mama return from market and asked who took meat from the pot. When I tried to lie I was given one. I started speaking in tongue. My big brother heard just the sound he visited the toilet like two times before he can regain his self. Lols
  • Upono (beating): This kind of slap is the advance and the combination of Aruhwoto and Aruhwe. it normally start with Cain in the process Cain will be so boring thrown away and she will start with palm, This one has various functions mentioned below;
  • First of all you will loose balance.
  • Your brain will go into Auto search as you will be wondering what is really hitting you.
  • You will be Deaf instantly; you will be told let's go home and you will reply Oini Oku Aru Ami! Meaning it's in my pocket lols.
God bless all Ebira Women home and Abroad we so grateful for the Good Upbringing if you were brought up in Ebiraland you will agree with all the above Slaps. You would have encountered them. Even our Governor Yahaya Bello Can't Deny It. I no talk oh.

I know you are shaking your head now Unless you are not an Ebira Folk.

9 Qualties That Accurately Describe Ebira Women Not “Violent”
 
On one particular Saturday I went to the to my school (Fed. Poly. Ado Ekiti, Ekiti State) in the afternoon and i was relaxing in cafeteria, i actually met some group of students discussing the topic Qualities of Tribal Girls in Nigeria. I was interested so i listened due to its what i do (Blogging)

“One Fella there was my cource mate he new im EbiraBoy so he raised the subject can you date EbiraGirls?.

When I heard that question, my stomach immediately tightened. Even though I hadn’t heard any of the them talk’ perception of Ebira women, I already knew (in my gut) what they were going to say.

By the time a guy said no and gave his reason, “Violent,” I was in the coat section and in a bad mood.

“Why?,” I asked myself, “is the acurate word that come to mind when describing Ebira women?”

Intellectually, I knew the answer: The intersection of race, class, and gender for Ebira women in this country has meant having to reconcile a legacy of slavery and the creation of dehumanizing tropes and stereotypes like the violent people, created by some majority groups in nigeria to systemically control our reproduction, destroy our families, and distort to ourselves and our men. And the truth is that Ebira women had to be many things, one of making peace, the best point. I also understand that this is why we as a culture value this attribute at the expense of so many others.

But there is far more to being a Ebira woman than being violent, Ebira women are strong and independent. So, shortly after leaving the cafeteria, I created my own survey and asked approximately 20 Ebira ladies to describe themselves. While I was disappointed to see that some Ebira women, too, are saying that they are elent no one can furck with, had internalized many of the same stereotypes that have been paraded as truth, it was refreshing to see that many Ebira women understood the complexity of their human experience and were able to articulate that complexity by choosing words that more fully and accurately encompasses what it means to be a Ebira woman.

Here are seven of the ways Ebira women surveyed see themselves that, thankfully, have nothing to do with being violent:

Ebira women are the s–t. And they have been since the beginning of time. Ebira women have fought hard to be accepted in society, past and present. Ebira women are trendsetters and revolutionaries.
Dont forget i also wrote an article on Dating Ebira Girl Vs Dating a Yoruba Girl Click to read.

1. Fashionable: Some of us love to look good and smell good.We love to be on the cutting edge of fashion trends. Others are always watching how we put colors together and how we tend to our hair.

2. Spiritual: Ebira women describe themselves as women of faith whether they identify as Christian, Muslim, or “not religious, but spiritual.” Ebira women strongly believe that they are connected to a higher being and that there is someone out there larger than themselves.

3. Family-oriented: Ebira women are often the ones to remember the birthdays, send the Christmas cards, and plan the family reunions. Family fuels a lot of Ebira women’s happiness and sense of belonging.


4. Funny: Ebira women love to laugh and make their friends and families laugh. We push back against that ABW (violent Ebira women).

5. Happy: Similar to the concept of Ebira women being funny, we’re also happy people with healthy emotional dispositions and worldviews. This happiness also comes from our ability to be grateful.

6. Sexy and Sensual: Ebira women embrace their sexuality and femininity. We feel desirable; they see the beauty of their skin tone, their features, their bodies, their natural smells, and their hair.

7. Intelligent: Ebira women see themselves as cognitively well endowed. We believe that Ebira women are able to juggle the matrix of life because of their ability to think quickly and creatively.



8. Hardworking: Ebira women can be any home breadwinner copied that as my mum top quality, mama took care of the family for more than a year when things were hard for papa. till date mama still got that quality.\



9. Very Supportive:  Similar to the concept of Ebira women being hardworking despite the fact that things were hard none of our neighbors knew what was going on in the family.

See What is Happening To Zariagi Community, Adavi L.G.A of Kogi State.
Before I could believe my uncle that Zariagi ( kabba Junction) is part of Adavi local government I have to lived there for some times, I have my reasons though in this part of Ebiraland Pidgin in English language is their major source of communications ranging from the olds to the Young's.


Also Read: Ambasador Judith Sheffi Atta's Biography One Of The Most Notable Women In Ebiraland.


I later observed that this is happening in this area because of the tribal barrier in the community. Zariagi is a community (town) you wouldn't identify Ebira people, Yoruba people, Igbos, Igala people, Bassa people, Tapas, and Nupes from each other becausof their relations making Zariagi the safest part and the most open for business part of Ebiraland, that may be due to Dangotes' Obajana Cement factory which is not far from the community.

Dangotes' Obajana Cement Factory in Obajana (largest cement factory in Africa) is a major element that makes Zariagi community to stand out from the rest of Ebiraland. Because from my research when I visited Obajana, People both Ebira people and the other tribes nation wide are making their money in Obajana and Zariagi is Developing.

Also read: Legendary Journey Of Obege One Of The Most Powerful Hunters and history Makers Of Ebiraland.

Zariagi as I can say for now is the most developed part of Ebiraland. Even though they don't have any higher learning institution, no good roads, no pipe born water, but in terms of Youth development, Business open areas, private business investments;- Zariagi took the number one spot in Kogi state. And the community is said to have developed this far in just 5 years. What a development!


Also Read: Dating Ebira Girls Versus Dating Yoruba Girls my Seven Observations.

The Youths in Zariagi are widely open to businesses, though some are oil black market businesses, in this area youths are building houses for businesses without doing frauds (Yahoo Yahoo) and their type of Ebira Musics are drastically different. In Zariagi Ebira Youths are hard-working.

The a fore mention points have made Zariagi (Kabba Junction) the best place to invest in any business is suitable for this area Lands are cheap and accessible.

But the most heart breaking thing in this community is that its Dramatically turning no mans Land which is bad and this is the main things that are happening in Ebira communities through out Ebiraland. Which is why I wrote an open letter to HRM. Ado Ibrahim the paramount ruler of Ebiraland that we need community kings (rulers) in all communities of Ebiraland. Click here to read.

We Need Community Paramount Rullers not Community Chairmen - An Open Letter to HRM. Ado Ibrahim.

In the most developed part of Ebiraland like Zariagi (Kabba Junction), Zango Daji, Barrack. In Adavi Local Government Area only have community chairmen at my best knowledges. Which is bad.

One thing I don't understand is how can a community survive without real leaders? But Ebiraland communities have managed to exist and consistency in existing even though they don't have Ohi, Ohireba, Taaru etc. But not for so long oh.

Crime is up 70 percent in every community throughout Ebiraland because their were no orders from community rulers, they don't even have one so who is going to give the order.

Please I am not talking about community leaders that when dead can be replaced by just another person. No. We need paramount community leaders that when dead the throne can only be inherited by their Family alone.

Our youths are doing the way they are doing now because the community they are from affect them negatively, since they came out of no rules and regulations community when they move out of the community to another persons land they misbehave.

Something heartbreaking are happening in this communities, one of it is that our lands are turning no Mans land, Nobody to speak for the community, citizens are not secure.

I heard Lokoja LGA is now claiming Zango Daji and Baracks more of Ebira People both home and in diasporal are now referring to Zariagi, Zango, and Barracks as Lokoja which is Bad. And not speaking well of Ebiraland, does that mean our own life isn't worth leaving?

This is an open letter to Adogu the paramount ruler of Ebiraland we need changes in this communities we need paramount rulers not community chairmen.

How To Cook Apapa, Ebira Peoples Moi Moi. : With Pictures
One major quality of a good housewife that cannot and will never be underestimated is cooking. Are you one of those women that prefer to eat outdoor and has eventually made eating outdoor your hobby?. Not because you love their food or because you just want to eat out, it’s because you can't cook and you are not ready to learn. Believe it you will lose your husband one day to one of this street and homeless girls. Why? Because you don't know how to cook? Well it’s not an excuse ma.

If I were you and if I'm not I will take offline or online extra moral lesson in cooking. It’s going to help you bet on me.

Start by reading free courses on Ebiraland.com, Start watching Guest Chef on NTA instead of hunting when Super Story will be shown. Thousands of free video courses on YouTube to begin with. Well a word is enough for the wise sha!!!.

If you are a steady and a constant reader of this small but mighty blog site (www.ebiraland.com) you will agree with me that I have written tutorials articles on foods and soups that were hit Back to kcab (back), ranging from:-

1. How to cook Ebira Epehu Soup, known as Okra soup.

2. How to cook Ebira Ipapara Soup, known as Melon soup.

And now back with a new one;

How To Cook Ebira Peoples' Moi Moi (Apapa in Ebira Language). Let the class begin.


Ingredients:
1. Beans
2. Palm Oil
3. Onions
4. Pepper
5. Water
6. Seasonings
7. Salt

When I say Ebira peoples moi moi I know you will want to ask questions about the difference between the real Moi Moi and Apapa and my answer will be not much differences but the little differences will be made known during the process and will be judged by the end product (Apapa).

Not only Ebira People are consuming this product but its more rampant this days among Ebira People, its known as Abari in Yoruba Language. Hope you are following.

This Apapa can be cooked in two different styles or Methods.

1. Is that it can be cooked white with nothing added to it like the ingredients not even a pinch of salt. And will be eaten with stew or any soup of your choice.

2.  Is otherwise you will have to add all the necessary ingredients that make up Moi Moi.

First Stage:


Get your beans ready I didn't mention quantity because I don't know how plenty you can get it. And you know as the country is Hard now that we are facing Economy recession things are now cost so try to manage your money and resources wisely Ehen!!. No go steal in the name of me teaching you how to cook Apapa. Aboki's are not nice these days.

Now  put all your Beans In a bowl and pour water to soak last it for about Ten Minutes, don't let it stay too long like real Moi Moi, Just to wash and make it wet for easy grinding.
Note; Don't peal while washing it’s not real Moi Moi, Ehen. After washing. Pour in a bowl with no water. See picture below;




It’s time to put all the necessary ingredients like Pepper and Onions, if you are not preparing the white Apapa, I prepared the one with Ingredients in this tutorial, see picture below and After that start grinding if you have grinder use yours or grind with money anywhere. Note must not be fine like Moi Moi while grinding Pictures below...



Stage Two:


After grinding, it’s time to stir just like normal Moi Moi and while stirring add your seasonings like Magi and Salt and add your Palm Oil. All ingredients quantities are based on the amount of beans used. Apply water while stirring. For better result. No Pictures

Stage Three:


After stirring and you have added all necessary ingredients now is time to pour little water in the pot you want to use. Put the water on fire and start boiling, pour your Apapa in nylon as many as you want.


Then cook till its done for like 20 minutes depending on the heat you applied...

After I cooked mine I have to top it with Garri (Cassava Dust) for those abroad and for those who don't know the English of Garri no mind me, nah recession oh. Instead of spending N3,500 on Pizza start consuming Nigeria made foods now the mill I just prepared now is not up to 5hundred naira, that is economy for you.

Note: the variety or type of beans you used will determine your end product on a normal ground Apapa is not suppose to look like the one I got at my end product but that’s because I used Honey beans. Its suppose to darken in color but only for mouth you go know wetin I prepare joor..
