Meaning Of Odogwu

When broken down, the word ‘Odogwu‘ is a compound of ‘Odo’ and ‘Egwù.’ In Igbo compound words, if two vowels (udaumé) from different words come together, the stronger vowel takes precedence, a concept known as ‘olilo udaumé.’ Therefore, ‘Odogwu’ is written as a single word, not as ‘Odo-Egwù.’ The components ‘Odo’ and ‘Egwù’ individually carry meanings of ‘giver’ or ‘source’ and ‘awe’ or ‘wonders,’ respectively.

It’s important to note that the term ‘Odogwu’ doesn’t directly translate to ‘Reverend’ or ‘Awesomely great’ word for word. Instead, it conveys the essence of a person of great value and valor. In Igbo language, ‘Egwú’ with a high tonal ending means ‘music,’ but when ‘Egwù’ is used in ‘Odogwu,’ it refers to ‘awe’ or ‘wonders,’ not music. Therefore, when you encounter ‘Odogwu’ in language or music, it is referring to an individual of significant value and courage, not necessarily someone associated with music.
