Geography[ edit ] In recent history, Ebira people inhabit a territory south-west of the confluence of the Niger and Benue Rivers though some Ebira communities also reside north-east of the confluence,  the territory surrounding the confluence is an ethnically diverse area with diffused cultural symbols. Since the advent of colonialism, many Ebiras have moved southwards due to search for arable farming spaces and working as migrant farmers. However, most versions trace the migration from the Jukuns of the Kwararafa state,  north of the Benue River and in present-day Taraba State. One of the relics of their trace from Kwararafa is the Apete stool, their symbol of authority and identity as a group within the kingdom, brought along and kept in a place in Opete deriving its name from the stool , in present-day Ajaokuta. The Apete is presently the title instrument of Ozumi of Okene. After migration from Kwararafa, they originally settled with the Igalas and both groups lived together for about years. Historically, these Ebiras communities were autonomous units without a central king or recognized royal families but were managed by leaders of lineages in a type of gerontocracy. Pre-colonial and colonial period[ edit ] During the conquest of Hausaland by Jihadists , Ebiras came under a state of conflict with Fulani warlords to the north and west. In the middle of the nineteenth century, two major communities, Igu and Panda were overrun. However, the Ebiras were not conquered by the Fulanis helped in part by security provided by their hilly environment.

Ever since independence from Britain in the African nation of Nigeria has been torn apart by wars, violence and ethnic conflict. The most famous of these disputes is of course the Biafran War which raged for nearly three years in as a result of the attempted secession from Nigeria by three eastern states.

I have compared dating Ebira Girls and Dating Yoruba girls In one of my previous articles you can check it out by clicking here. It was early this year when I first landed in Kaduna State as a young- Ebira Boy, with warnings about Hausa girls: I tried to brush this off—preconceptions are always dangerous when entering any sort of relationship.
Still, when I met my first girlfriend in Ahmadu Bello University, Hausa girl from Kano State, I was immediately taken aback by an over arching obsession with status and money. She had a vision of the man she was going to marry: After all, as she put it, “Bloggers don’t make a lot of money. But surely not all Hausa Girls thought all Guys had an endless supply of money?
They weren’t all obsessed with fame, Looks and fortune, were they? Was Hausa culture really as shallow as my friends had warned? I dated another Hausa Girl again this Girl! Sadly, when we were suddenly thrust into a long distance relationship for like 3months, the reality set in that it was putting too much stress on our education.
So with a heavy heart, it was the end of a fairytale love affair.

Which brings us to the music industry,specifically rap or c rap as I call it. Call me a hater,but I don’t see any art in an illiterate screwface juvenile mumbling mantras of ignorance and idiocy interspersed with expletive sprinkled self adulation. Which is why I have little time for those who would pretend these deliberately unmusical verbalisations are praiseworthy paeans reminiscent of the respect due Tennyson or Pushkin.

It is alleged that European slave traders were fairly well informed about various African ethnicities, leading to slavers’ targeting certain ethnic groups which plantation owners preferred. Particular desired ethnic groups consequently became fairly concentrated in certain parts of the Americas. Elements of Igbo culture can still be found in these places. For example, in Jamaican Patois , the Igbo word unu, meaning “you” plural, is still used.
This term had originated from the reported prevalence of these skin tones among the Igbo but eastern Nigerian influences may not be strictly Igbo. Colonial Nigeria The 19th-century British colonization effort in present-day Nigeria and increased encounters between the Igbo and other ethnicities near the Niger River led to a deepening sense of a distinct Igbo ethnic identity.
