I’m not Ibo/Igbo but I love them, because their culture, tradition and ways of life never cease to intrigue me.

I often hear EZE (think of Eze Goes to School), and I phoned one elderly man in Owerri, who happens to be my friend’s dad. He told me Eze has something to do with “king.” But he lived most of his life in Lagos before he went back to Owerri.

His children were born and bred in Lagos, and therefore, they don’t understand Igbo language.

Now, please, what’s Eze? And most importantly, what Ezemo?

Is it a name or a title or what?

I’d appreciate and answer by a knowledgeable person.
