  1. Jide Sadiku Says:

    Dear Sir/Madam,
    Kindly enlightene me: On what occasions does one use the greeting expression – E ku eti’gbo? Is it for good news or for bad news? e.g. can we greet someone who has just received a bad news about a loved one with the expression: E ku eti igbo?
    A relative told me that we use ‘E ku eti’gbo’ only for good news, e.g. news of success. Please advise.
    Thank you,
    Jide

    Brother Jide Sadiku, ore mi(my friend )tells me that it is used only for BAD news. Don’t be surprised if certain Yorubas conflict on what a term or how a word is used because there are many dialects involved so ..now this ore is from Oyo,and speaks the core Yoruba that standard Yoruba comes from so evidently originally this expression was used only to break bad news. So any Yoruba who says otherwise either has limited knowledge of Yoruba or in his dialect they have a different use.
