Could not but share this article because it occured to me recently when I heard an Ibo friend of mine refer to something as Ibo made. In all sincerity, I try not to make statements that may sound racist, ethnic or tribal in the ears of others. But this friend of mine jolted me in Accra when she said she suspected that something in the market was probably Ibo made, meaning inferior. But reading Pius Adesanmi's article in Next sheds more light on the issue for me. Pls find it here
