Contrary to most falsehood and lies put out here, akata isn't a Yoruba word, isn't in Yoruba lexicon and was never coined by the Yoruba people of nigeria, we do not take pride in coining derogatory terms for our fellow African Americans, Akata is an Igbo word coined by the Igbo people of south east nigeria (igboland), akata is also a place in Imo state south east nigeria (igboland). It's a term used by Igbo auther chinua Achebe and now used by Igbo americans as a derogatory term against African American women. Research for yourself on the words and origins and don't just rely on falsehood posted on the internet to covertly promote anti-yoruba sentiments.
Emeka called the African American woman an akata simply because she wouldn't act like his docile African wife.
