Are Igbos The Finest Of Them All?

See the conversation below;

A: The finest Nigerian girls are from the East. That's why in most beauty pageants majority of the contestants are Igbo girls, and most times the winners are from the East. 

B: That's a lie. I agree that many contestants come from the East but that's because unlike young women from other parts of Nigeria, Igbo girls are more concerned with trivial and superficial things like beauty contests. Most girls from other parts are more focused on academics and building a career, Igbo girls would rather go for beauty contests and look for rich men. 

A: That's a big lie, Igbo girls are just as smart and driven as girls from other parts, it's because of the large population of beautiful Igbo girls that sometimes they dominate beauty contests. Ask any Nigerian and they will tell you Igbo girls are the finest, that's the only reason. They're still just as smart and driven as others. 

B: If that's the case how do you explain that universities in the East have very few female professors, but when you go to the West there are ten times more female professors, even very young ones, yet in some universities in the East you won't find one female professor? That's because Igbos are more concerned with other things like pageants and beauty contests, their ambitions are limited and that's why they flood beauty contests. 

A: I disagree. 

Have you ever heard a conversation similar to the one above? Why do you think Igbos populate Nigerian beauty contests to a good extent; do you think it's because the prettiest girls in Nigeria hail from the East, or do you think it's because they are less ambitious and their pursuits are much 'smaller' than those of young women from other parts?

I'm not trying to spark any tribal debates, what's your opinion?


  1. Well from personal research and survey,Edo men aint fine but they got some huge junk!

    1. It's obvious to anybody who has a brain that this post is about women, who said anything about men and their junk? Please enough of the filthy sex talk, if you're horny go and have sex and stick to the topic at hand.

    2. Thank u Anon 1.41pm.

    3. Dear virginia 1:41pm,this is an igbo as well as a tribal topic and if I choose to not stick to the topic at hand,there's nothing under this sun u can do about it.

  2. I am presently in †ђξ east and seriously I rarely see beautiful igbo girls.they aren't even close fo fine. I get suprised when I see those that contest and are really beautiful. I wonder ♓☺w come. ΨђåƮ I believe is that igbos from well †̥ do homes are actually beautiful

  3. Such arguments will always spark tribal debates, like the one above. They shifted from who's/what's more beautiful to academically driven/indulging in frivolous-like activities, forgetting that in both cases the respective parties are greatly involved. I don't know about igbo girls being the finest, but I've come across heart-stopping non-igbo beauties in my short sojourn on this earth as well as seeing the likes of my able school senior Omoni Oboli, Omotola, Mercy Johnson, Ini Edo, MO, Toolz, Rukky Sanda...*phew*...

    Happy Birthday to egbon Wale and That *sweet* naughty house wife :D

  4. I'm Igbo but I agree that Igbo girls are less ambitious academically, especially those that live in eastern states

  5. I'm igbo and I was born and lived in the north for about 25 years of my life and I can really say that the hausa/fulani girls are the prettiest in nigeria. They are never seen because they are always covered.

    1. @anony 2:35 chop knuckle! I have been to 16 countries in Nigeria, I mean all the zones in Nigeria and I can tell u 100% for a fact dt the hausa fulani's/kanuri's are the prettiest in Nigeria. It's only dt dy are not jes advanced, educated and loud like d igbos. The effik-ibibio's hv more preetier girls than igbo's but they ain't nuffin compared 2 the northern girlz!

      *lips sealed and watching*

    2. 16 states in Nigeria u mean?

    3. Oooshe @ Phransea. Sleep of d eyes..

  6. In this life everything is packaging, there's no ugly girl in Niger again. As for igbos winning beauty contests, well they put themselves out there that's why they win, the current mbgn repd Akwa-Ibom even though she's obviously igbo soooo...

  7. igbo gals re really d most prettiest

  8. I really dislike this kind of stereotyping.........but if u ask me, the prettiest girls in Naija are of northern extract and fulani/kanuri's carry am well well...
    In other news, all na packaging.

    They like the beauty contest hustle. That's all. Other ethnic groups have better things to do than run around in swimsuits.Thinking about it now, all the Igbo girls in my secondary school were very pretty and clever.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…


Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…


I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Closed Chapter...

Hello everyone, yesterday a friend said to me, Thelma I love your blog, I've told so many people about your blog, I think you're a very good writer but I feel there's something you're not doing right"

This friend was the first person who won our beauty of the day contest back then in 2014. Then we had met just once through a mutual friend. I mentioned the blog to her and she became an instant reader. I wouldn't have exactly called her a friend then but yesterday as we sat down waiting for our Uber to come get us from Wal-Mart, she's definitely my friend and I knew she was coming from a good place when she said she had much higher expectations of my blog.

Me too.

But you see, in the last year or so, maybe even longer than that, I haven't felt much joy in blogging. It began to feel more and more of a laborious chore, one which I hardly reaped any fruits from.

I really love writing, I love sharing my life and my experiences with others and I've enjoy…
