I Thought Adesua Etomi Is A Yoruba Lady Until I Discovered She’s Originally From This State


In Nigeria, local or traditional names serves are easy means of identification. Merely saying your native name can communicate to the listener the particular tribe you are from. However, I found out lately that such fact not always true when I discovered this fact about Adesua Etomi.


Here in Nigeria, the norm is that the children from a union (parent), identify primarily with their father’s tribe and are named with the language of the land.

Meanwhile, all these while being a hug fan of Adesua Etomi, I thought she is actually from the Western part of Nigeria, specifically Lagos State, but I just found out that her father is an Esan Man. Isn’t that amazingly surprising? She bears a Yoruba name while she has her root connected firmly to the South South.

The popular Nollywood actress was given birth to in Owerri, Imo state. Her father,is a soldier from Esan descent while her mother who is an engineer by profession is from Yoruba descent.

Well, I do not know how her parents did it that she is not given an Esan name. Notwithstanding, it is good to finally know that she have a connection with the South South, Edo state to be precise. I think the Esan people would be delighted knowing that she is one of them.


What is your take on this?
