ok so this the situation. I met a  nigerian at a funeral today. He approached me and asked me my name, and I told him,  Ihunayachi Bashari, so he replied, am guessing you must be igbo and a northerner mixture.I say yes, mostly ngwa igbo and hausa. He laughs and says igbo is igbo. I smiled and said i guess so. So after a sec he introduced himself as chinemelu Ezebunnadim. I was like, so you are igbo too, and with a confused look on his face he says no am idoma. I was like what's the difference? And he started telling me this tall
tales about how idoma people came from edo and igala  people. I was like okayoo. Personally my family is composed of so many tribes, we are not tribal, but we at least acknowledge the different parts of us. So to not argue I accepted his definition of what idoma is. So I asked him to speak his language and to me he was speaking igbo, a dialect of it, just like my ngwa igbo and  my kano hausa is different from central hausa.Its so weird, so to native igbo speakers please enlighten me, are idomas related to the igbos, cause it makes no sense that you speak the language share names, and even traditions and yet you say there are no relations.Personally I believe we  are all mixed with each other some how..but this guy just looked like i had stoned him by calling him igbo, or at least of having relation to igbos.

Huh? Huh? Huh? Huh? Huh?

I understand that there are similarities with idoma and igbo, but i think that is due to the fact they are neighbors with the boundaries. My mother and most of my family are Idoma but I dont speak fluently as I was raised in the UK but hearing the two languages they do not sound the same although some of the names use the same structure for spelling and pronunciations. If we had to pick one out of the three main tribes that we are most similar to it would be Igbo but apart from that we are different. It is not bad to be different and that doesn't mean we dont want to consider the nation as one, but sometimes people forget about the smaller tribes in Nigeria and generalize the country as a three tribe nations so it is nice for the smaller ones to have their individuality to be proud off.

what is different btw Igbo and idomo people ? Nigerians should be very proud of their cultures and try to make people outside other continets hear and know about it just like south African's, kenyans are doing.

Bring me the Idomo atire here, I will be so proud to be wearing it.  Cheesy Cheesy

All the eastern part of Nigeria are related to Igboland because they are all the people of Anambra state, it the goverment of federal repulic of Nigeria seperated the Igbo's so that the unity to fight for the Biafran nation will die off.
Believe or not the south south and south east are one people living in peace and harmony' when discoverd the unity we possess in Igboland they came up with the idea of creating new states.
