Nigeria's leading story blog. Star Voting Stage, Five, Six, Nigeria, Nominees, Igbo.
Entries to MOOFY STAR SEASON 1 ended some days ago and we promised to publish the five finalists over the last weekend. Well now it is no longer a secret that we did not. The delay was down to the difficult job of nominating the five finalists who would go into the VOTING STAGE. Because of competition and to be fair to all we have decided to increase the list of nominees from FIVE to SIX.
Below are the SIX nominees and their entries.
THE NOMINEES ARE:
’Ndakuyanza,’ meaning “I love you.” The expression is from Luhya. Luhya is a Bantu language of Western Kenya.
‘Iye belema me’ meaning, “I love you.” The expression is from local Kirike language and is part of the ljoid group in Nigeria. Its speakers are found in Okrika amongst the oil rich South-South people of Nigeria.
‘A hurum gi n'anya’ meaning, “I love you.” The expression is from Igbo language. It is precisely from the Abia/Imo parlance of the Igbo language.
‘Alagm’ meaning “I love you.” It is also called ‘kasem’. It can also be spelt as’ alagim’, depending on the stress of the vowel "i". The expression is from the Upper East region of Ghana.

‘Agwabeghi'm gi na ahurum gi na anya maka na ndi mmadu na ekwu ya mgbe nile. Achorom igosi gi na ahurum gi na anya site na omumem. Ugbua, ana mu agwa gi akarakam na afulum gi n'anya. All of the above means, “If ‘I love you’ wasn't a cliché, I would have said it to you long time ago, but I prefer to show it to you. Right now, I am telling you my destiny, “I Love You!”
Don’t worry; the romantic expression above is from the Igbo tongue. It is a mix of two dialects in the Igbo language.
‘Afurum gi n’anya’ meaning “I love you.” The expression is from South East Nigeria. It is widely used amongst the Enugu/Anambra parts in South East Nigeria. It is also an expression used commonly to say, “I love you” in the Igboezue branch of the Igbo language.
