I googled the word "Igarra" on @youtube & I was disappointed by what I saw.Either it was a video report of robbery or another calamity in Igarra or environs or about ABBA festival(one of d biggest festivals that takes place once in 7yrs). Is it that Igarra is only known for bad things or just ABBA? This is a wrong representation of the great ppl of Igarra.Worst of all, all d videos had less than 500videos.I was about to give up leave youtube when I came across this legend 😁😁😁 he had 19,000 views for music video, IKEDE SONG..His name is Mr Adeche Osivaya...whoever knows him should tell him that he made me proud & it will be a pleasure to featuring him.
Eh!!Ehn!!! I also check of my boss @justicedhfilms video #Avo it has 5k+ views..HABA!!! This song is the biggest Igarra song of the moment.Let's all go to YouTube & get it to 100,000 Views & above.That's our superstar there. #Igarra#Culture#Worldmusic#Africa#heritage#Language#Edo#BeninKingdom#Akoko

This question has always plagued me. I was brought up speaking Yoruba. In fact if my dad asks you a question and you reply him in English, a slap will reset your brain for you. When I speak Yoruba to Ade Ade in public, sometimes I get really weird looks from parents around as they think it is "razz"
Wetin concern me? I am Yoruba and VERY proud, I intend to pass on that pride to any and every child of mine.
What's your take on indigenous languages?

Residents Lament As Heavy Rain Washes Off Bridge in Ondo state.
For the people of Oba-Akoko and Ikun-Akoko in the northern senatorial district of Ondo State, they never had the premonition that the midnight’s heavy downpour would cost them to be “miles” apart despite sharing boundaries.
Residents of the two communities woke to see that the only bridge connecting them has been wash off by the midnight downpour which lasted for hours.
With this development, it is now a compulsory task for members of the affected communities to go through a longer route if they plan to travel to other parts of the senatorial district, instead of a journey which usually last some minutes before the collapse of the bridge.
The development has caused confusion in the Akoko and Ose local government axis of the state as prospective travelers have been stranded because of lack of access road.
A former Councillor in Ose local government, Isaac Obiniran, while calling on government to expedite effort at reconstructing the bridge, stated that the only alternative route is not only longer but also in a terrible state with robbers usually operating there.
“There is hardly a week that travelers will not be robbed or kidnapped along the road.
“The other Ipele- Idoani- Isua road, which is federal highway that would have been a good alternative to Oba – Akungba -Oka road, is also in a very bad state.
He urged the Ondo state government to quickly come to the rescue of numerous travelers passing through the road.
