“They usually work manual jobs and for very long hours. Coupled with the bad economy, it’s easy for the stress to get to them. So when they have time; they get to binge on my Mmanya Nkwu and Mmanya Ngwo. It puts them at ease.”
 
Lexicon Analysis: “Mmanya Nkwu” is Palm Wine extracted from the Palm Tree. “Mmanya Ngwo” is also Palm Wine, but extracted from the Rafia Palm Tree. They are both alcoholic and tapped pretty much the same way. This is done by climbing to the neck of the tree and cutting ducts; under which are placed local mugs (calabashes) or plastic gallons.
