So I was reading through some of the comments from the past on EbiraOnline.com, so I came across an argument between two of my fans talking about locally made wine vs. the standard made wines so I got the inspiration to write about Ebira Locally Made wine of those days (Eche-Ayi). Note that this is not a palm wine. NO, this is different entirely.
Guinea Corn Wine (Eche-Ayi) is a wine extract gotten from Guinea Corn. When we say Eche in Ebira it means Wine (Also Eche can be Celebration just like Festival, Ech’ane for example).
Note: Eche-Ayi is Alcoholic.
The Procedures of Preparing Guinea Corn Wine (Eche-Ayi Anebira).
- Get Guinea corn and wash it.
- Soak the corn in water for three (3) days for it to ferment.
- On the third day you’ll notice that the corn is germinating, that’s good. Remove it from water and grind it.
- Turn it into a big pot and boil for some minutes like 20 to 30 minutes. (Just slight boiling while it’s still watery).
- Get a mud-pot broken beneath (known as Unoko-ududo). Of course it’s traditional. Or use an open cylinder covered with closely tight filter or Maniko with supportive sticks under, put it on a container and start putting the boiled liquid of corn in it… it’ll filter into the container.
- After putting it all. Wait a while for the filtration to complete as it’ll be dropping gradually.
- Take your container of wine and start sharing with family and friends.
That’s how you prepare Eche-Ayi. Enjoy your drink. Remember, you can store in fridge for future use. Don’t abuse it, though it’s sweet do not just abuse it.
Disclaimer: This is a drink that is alcoholic please do not abuse it I only write for research and educational purpose only I don’t produce Guinea Corn wine myself.

- Combine the garri, flour, and baking powder very well in a large ball. Put it aside.
- Cream together the sugar and butter using a mixer or food processor. Beat the eggs in and then add in the vanilla.
- After adding the flour mix to the creamed mixture and mixing well, stir in milk until batter is smooth. Then spoon into prepared pan.

Take note that bitter kola doesn’t make appearance in any ritual that has to do with progress unlike what we have with a kola nut and others. Anytime you see a spiritualist performing a ritual with bitter kola, it stands for negativity.
We use bitter kola for destruction of spells and other missions. There are simple rituals you can perform with bitter kola. Knowledge that can save you from doom should you know. If you don’t know it, you suffer the penalty, this didn’t hold you from performing your daily prayers as a matter of fact it’s Islamic.
Let us take for instance, most times you see flies in good number flying and perching at your shop or office. In normal circumstances, flies are only seen at a place where there are offensive odour, that’s to say, where something seems to be corrupted. These are possible reasons for attraction. Then ask yourself, why are flies at your shop or office? It’s an obvious sign that something is wrong somewhere. Something is cooking.
Watch your sales throughout the day and period of time. Watch your expenses and income. You see that expenses are greater than income. Watch your business transactions and customers reflection.
You must understand that something is wrong somewhere. Bitter kola can do the wonder!
Using Bitter Kola (Oro) in Spell Destruction.
- Look for a bitter kola, wash it properly not removing its husk (the back).
- Get 21 seeds of alligator pepper (Ose in Ebira Language).
- Insert the alligator seeds inside your mouth together with the bitter kola.
- Chew them together, stand at the centre of your shop or office, facing the door post.
- Affirm that whatsoever that has caused the invitation of the ugliness that makes vulture to visit and desire to eat live sheep (it’s an adage).
- That you affirm it goes back to the sender and remain safe wherever it came from now and right now.
- Splash seven times forward (facing the door post). Turn back and splash seven times.
- You should continue this exercise till you experience positive changes. Have this secret for spiritual exercise.
Get to know that spirits are stubborn. Some spirits are as stubborn as some human. This is why you need sound spiritual knowledge to overcome. Otherwise, you have no place to go at the course of your spiritual practices. A ritual that deserves eight days ritual practices won’t be okay at four days.
Learn this truth and secret today! Just like the saying, a spirit that ask for seven never take six. Is as simple as that!

Ipapara Soup is an Ebira Soup which is made with melon seeds and enriched with spices and vegetables. It can be prepared with leafy vegetables, such as ugu (fluted pumpkin leaves), bitter leaf (UZI), spinach and the likes.
Below is my Moms’ favourite, a recipe prepared with Uzi (bitter leaf) & Upa Huuru.
What is Upa Huuru (Sheep Skin)?
Upa Huuru is an animal skin gotten from Sheep and Ram, made for human consumption a.k.a Kpomo in Yoruba language, but the Kpomo that Yoruba people refer to is purely Cow Skin, which researchers shows that it’s not good for the health, mainly because most of these cow skins are made particularly for industrial use but people put it for sale.
So if you want to be on a safer side (health wise) I will urge you to go for Upa Huuru instead of Cow Skin. For it’s more tasty and still got nutrient compare to normal Kpomo (Cow Skin)
Note: Upa (Ebira Language) means Skin.
Ingredients for the Ipapara Soup (with Uzi/Upa Huuru)
- 3 medium cups Ipapara Seeds (melon seeds)
- Upa Huuru or Assorted meat (Sheep or Cow Meat, cow meat, goat meat, turkey meat, chicken etc.)
- Assorted dry fish of choice (stock fish etc.)
- Dried Prawns (optional)
- Red Palm Oil: 2 cooking/serving spoons
- 1 tablespoonful ground Crayfish
- Bitter leaf(as desired)
- 2 seasoning cubes
- Pepper (to taste)
- Salt (to taste)
Cooking directions for Ipapara soup
- Boil the Skin (Upa Huuru) assorted meat and stock fish, with chopped onions, one seasoning cube and salt to taste.
- Cook until tender and set aside for later use.
- Clean the dried prawns by separating the heads & tails from the centre.
- Grind the heads & tails and set aside to use in the soup. Then soak the centre in hot water, to soften and clean it.
- Grind the Ipapara seeds until smooth and then dissolve with lukewarm water to form a paste.
Now to cook the Ipapara Soup
- Heat up the palm oil until hot, add diced onions and the dissolved Ipapara. Fry for about 20 minutes, stirring constantly until it thickens.
- Add the bitter leaf (uzi) and a little water or the meat stock. Add the prawns and leave to simmer for 5 minutes

seasoning cubes. Boil for 15 minutes.
