Technically she did not originate the word, but Ekaette did start the trending hashtag #mbok movement on Instagram.
Real name, Greene Udofia, 32, with social media handle ‘its_ekaette’ started the hashtag commenting on various news stories on Nigerian social media pages, often ending her sentences with #mbok.
Her popularity and the #mbok slang is growing as she attempts to be first to comment, does it constantly and consistently, going as far as sometimes just typing the word #mbok
Mbok is a word in Calabar meaning abeg (please) – depending on how its said and taken.
Greene has gained so much Ekaette-popularity that memes and prayers are created on her behalf. She is an Abuja based Akwa Ibom single chic currently attempting to cash in on her fame by selling #Mbok merchandise.
