Description:
Mbowura or Juoadigbe is the settlement of the Juoadigbe clan in the Northern Region. It is situated some miles south of Kpandai. After Agou, Mbowura is the second mainly Bogoŋ-speaking settlement . As a result of the warlike conflicts in the past decades involving the Nawuri, Gonja, Nanumba, Konkomba and Dagomba many Bogoŋ left Mbowura. In 2006 there were only about 10 houses left. During my stay at Mbowura in February 2006, I recorded three texts at three different evening sessions.
Born 1986. Chief of Mbowura (Juo Mbowura), Juoadigbe clan. Joined the project as research assistant in 2006. Key figure of Bogoŋ Documentation.
Born around 1940 at Bayim
The son of Nana Kwame Awiagah (Chief Priest) and Akosia Daare
