Welcome to Benin City
Welcome to Benin City

One of the most exciting things about Nigeria is its ethnic diversity. Nigeria is said to be the home of an estimated record breaking number of tribes and languages; about 520 or so different languages. To celebrate our diversity, Haba Naija is doing series of features and articles on specific tribes, cultures and people. In this feature, our focus is on the Edo people and their capital City, Benin City.

We call our feature on the Edo People Welcome to Benin City. The lead researcher and contributor to the feature is Benin City resident Bubemi Ekengbuda. Addition research and articles were contributed by Zina Kaja and Temitope Odurinde .
We would love to hear from Edo men and women out there who may want to correct us on things we may have got wrong about their tribe, we would also love to hear about things we got right! We also welcome additional contribution to enrich our feature. For now, I hope you will join me in celebrating the Edo people, their rich and valuable contribution to Nigeria today and in time gone bye.

  1. Wow, 520 languages sounds so amazing. It seems that even people from different parts of Nigeria can’t understand each other.

  2. 520 that’s just the minority languages. There are just 3 major languages that are recognized. That’s Hausa, Yoruba and Ibo. So the language barrier isn’t that severe. If you don’t understand a language all you have to do is break your english down to pidgin english and you will surely get a response. Every Nigerian speaks pidgin and it is adopted in all of western africa

  3. I am extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see a nice blog like this one nowadays..
