- Photos of an enormous tuber of yarm from a farm in Agulu village in Anambra state have generated reactions
- Most people who engaged pictures of the yam asked what the farmer did to achieve such a big size at harvest
- Others who had seen such enormity before spoke about how it is always a good sight in the east
A Nigerian man with the Twitter handle @OsitaAmakeze on Wednesday, December 2, showcased the monstrous yam that was harvested in Agulu, Anambra state.
He said that the type of yam is what they call "ofu ji a na-eme offload". The yam has received some interesting interactions on Twitter.
It should be noted that his latest tweet was a follow-up on the one he made in 2019. Last year, he wrote about how his friend's yam weighed 153.10 and was the heaviest in his community.
See his post below:
Below were some of the reactions his post got:
"So what's the secret? Yam species, farming style or onataluchi? How many people helped to unearth it? Is this still a tuber or Yam stump?"
"This is one of the best memories I cherish so much whenever I travel for Christmas, can't wait to go and dig my grand ma own."
"Never seen a yam so big like this. What's the secret? Or is it a gif5 from the gods of the Land?"
"Wow! This is enough to feed an entire village."
"Oh wow! How long ago was it planted? I love yams."

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that sometimes, people succeed in other fields different from what they studied in school. For Eke William Chibuzor, a Nigerian graduate, farming is the real deal.
Eke is a double degree holder: graduated from Federal Polytechnic Nekede where he studied business administration and management at both OND and HND levels and also read business management at Imo State University in 2016.
The native of Umuike Eziala, Umuohiagu/Ngor Okpala in Imo state recently took to social media to showcase his large cucumber plantation.
He recounted how he was discouraged by friends and some family members when he initially nursed the idea of venturing into farming as a graduate, but today they are marvelled by his eventual success in it.
