Mbanu! For whatu kwanu?
Sometimes I wonder why I should be “bothered” that I may be called “Igbotic” or struggle not to be found speaking Igbo “too much”. Nna lekwanu muoo, nwafo kara aka di ka mu..
My fear should rather be that I’d be found wanting in speaking or writing my SOLID and wonderful language.. God forbid that I feel He added me to an inferior race… Mbanu!
Igbo bu ndi kara aka… ndi m ji eme onu. O buru na emeghi m ma o bu suo asusu ka onye Igbo, a ga m asukwanu ka onye? Uwa mu ozo, if I can choose, I would love to be “onye Igbo”…..I should rather be proud to be identified as “Igbotic”… Maka na a bu m onye Igbo…and Igbo bu ndi oma…
I am proud to be onye Igbo, “nyamiri”, “okoro”, ihe o soro ha kpoo ya, and I try hard to represent my tribe well… Giving people an idea that Igbos possess every good quality….. Innumerable… Cha!
Igbo ndi nwe m kwenu! Umunna kwezonu!
