Teni called Erica “omo Igbo,” you are getting angry because this is Twitter.
Offline, people call people “Omo igbo” “Aboki” “Alhaja” etc and we all live in peace but once it’s Twitter, you all be moving mad and stupidly sensitive because you have 10mb data. Oshisco

There’s nothing wrong in referring to someone from the Igbo tribe as "ỌMỌ Igbo"
We call ourselves “ỌMỌ YORUBA".
Ọmọ = Child of.
That’s Yoruba language for you.

Omo Igbo = Igbo person or Child of Igbo.
How is this offensive?
Very soon you people will be offended by being called Nigerians.

Yorubas are known for calling people by their place/tribe. Someone from Ilesha (the same Yoruba o) will be called Baba Ijesha, and be cool with it…
Iya Oyo, Baba Ijebu and others came from this concept. But someone looking for attention thinks “Omo Igbo” is derogatory. Ode.
