i was looking at some pictures on a friend's page, and it took me a minute to figure out that eephoma was actualy Ifeoma, only because someone referenced her as "Ify"
Lawd.
i suppose very soon "re" is going to be replaced by RAY. i've been quick to correct people that try to call me "ray-ray" or "re-re". so somebody named ebere will now be ay-bay-ray?
*sigh*
So very true... I tire o!!!

I hate it more than anything. And TM, its been in vogue for over a year now, maybe your contacts just started using it. Its lame and razz. And i think it says a lot about the user.

i detest it. it's small children doing this now, dem never grow. most of the people on my friends list are my age and are mature. the girl was a friend of a friend and she'd commented on the picture i was looking at.

I personally think its another sad attempt to "belong". Some Nigerians will lie, kill, steal, prostitute, deny their families and YES remix their names just to 'belong' or fit into a certain social class. Na today!

My dear this thing has no age boundaries O! I think the more mature generation are even worst at this trend O! For some of them its their way of telling their peers that they are very much "current" and exposed! Infact, that "ha wara anya"! Yes that they have "been-to" and they know wussup!

Thank you very much! Let them feel free to shorten their names; we've been doing it forever... Chi, Ik, Ib and so on... but to purposely spell it in such a way that removes every ounce of 'Nigerianess/ism' or whatever we're going to call it is just plain dumb... Ok, ok if you're an international superstar we understand that so many of them don't use their 'real' names for marketing purposes.

But to twist ya name to that extent because inferior complex dey worri you get as e be!

One BIG ISSUE be say we no like our own thing at all. To fly Arik Air Naija man go ask if you dey craze, rather him go pay £4-5,000 for BA Business Class... so you go pay oyinbo man an extra £4,300 to let him know how much more betta than you him be?
If Germany make a car and tell their own people don't buy or drive this crap... You go drive am??
Until you like your own thing the International community no need to like am either.

That Arik Air thing taya me sha!

Ok, does that mean that there is NO 'UnNigerianianizing' of 'Ogbonna'? Haba! [by the way, my fb name is still same O, I am just curious to see how anyone go 'Oyibonize' 'gb' in OGBONNA. Oya, helep me! Just for the heck of it! :sweat:
