Agwa // Agwụgwa -Colours

Agwa  // Agwụgwa -Colours

For example if you speak English you might say, blood red, rosey cheeks, etc. Most languages share this descriptive commonality… Have a look at the references above.

These are Imo / Abia & Central translations…

Red can also be Obara; ( diaspora kids do you remember your mother shouting “Obara Jesus!” ) because it’s only by the blood we learn and we grow and preserve our mother tongue 😅😇🤣🤲🏽

Sometimes it’s better to match the visual without any other language translation so your mind can remember to see read and speak – what you saw
What are these colours called in your dialect?
