We the Igbos of Nigeria are proud that this one word from our language left our permanent stamp on some of the Carribean Creoles. This is evidence of the presence of the Igbo people among the several ethnic groups that found their new home in the Carribean.
The word "UNU" in Igbo means "YOU - plural". It is also spelt exactly the same as it is spelt in Jamaican and Belize Creoles i.e. "UNU".
Ka Chukwu gozie unu! (meaning "God bless "you-plural")
