A VIEW ON WOMAN IN THE SOCIETY-FATE OF A MANGO FRUIT
One of the realest poems I’ve ever seen,
An Ọgbanje (Igbo language) is a term in Odinani (Igbo: ọ̀dị̀nànị̀) (or ) for what was believed to be an evil spirit that would deliberately plague a family with misfortune. Its literal translation in the Igbo language is “children who come and go”. It was believed that within a certain amount of time from birth (usually not past puberty), the Ọgbanje would deliberately die and then come back and repeat the cycle causing the family grief.
If I decide not to get married until later in my life do not blame it on ogbanje, just explain how our societies forcing an unwanted fate upon its women is not in evil spirit.
