More tips:

(Kedu ka ị mere?) is (how do you do?) But in some cases, people just say (kedu?) which means (how) and receives same response. Without completing the sentence, (Kedu ka ị mere?) Igbo people still understands. So, you can as well just cut yourself the stress of saying the sentence in full by just saying (kedu?).

 

Ndeewo is also used as a general greeting. It is used for Hi and Hello. To see more of the ways it is used, see GREETINGS IN IGBO LANGUAGE
