According to Philip Emeagwali, Superman Killi-Wee Nwachukwu was the strongest guy in Nigeria.

Killiwe Actions

He was performing all over the place like a superman. To view him, people had to pay. Back then, I seen him perform at our elementary school. I believe Nwozuzu Nwachukwu was his true name (or something like that). One commenter said that “Killi We” was a moniker he picked up following a physical altercation with a certain man.

An excellent innate Superman! Nwachukwu Nwozuzu (God’s Son). He was given the nickname “Killi We” during an altercation with a recalcitrant guy known as “Tick man,” who would not give him the money he was due for transporting a truck load of items from the market to the man’s house.

He used to push a two-wheeled wooden vehicle and deliver products to people. Truck cars were either nonexistent or very expensive back then. Thus, after delivering the products, the man refused to pay Nwachukwu’s fee, arguing that it was excessive. When he attempted to turn away, Nwachukwu grabbed his hand and insisted that he pay. He pinned the man to the ground after a brawl broke out. To help her husband, the man’s wife dashed in and emerged holding a wooden pestle. Nwachukwu grabbed it from her, hauled her up, and pinned her to the ground on top of her husband. Helpless, she screamed, “Killi We Nwachukwu, Killi we Nwanchukwu,” which translates to “Nwachukwu, kill us!”

We were urged to pay some money in the early 1990s so that he would come and show off his power. We were happy to pay the money. We waited for his arrival on the D day, but we were unable to see him, so we fled. The next day at school, a few kids who could bear the wait told the story of how he arrived, how he carried four students in each hand, and how he was a powerful acrobat. Menn. I thought it was a terrible idea to wait to see this man.

He is genuine. That was a different analyst.

And still another.
He was real. He visited our school back in the 1980s, and we payed 50 Kobo to see him. He experimented with a 504 Peugeot SR while holding ten bags of cement between his teeth. According to legend, after his death, his body was placed in Aladinma’s tomb. During the night, he is said to have carried all the other corpses and stretched himself over them. He persisted on doing this until the mortuary turned him away. He was authentic.

When I was younger, I recall hearing tales of Giant Alakuku. However, I don’t remember ever seeing him.

I recall Killiwe. He was a big, chubby guy who used to travel the nation pulling things like pulling automobiles by their bumpers and stopping them when someone was pressing the accelerator.

I also recall a song by Seven-Seven that talks about Killiwe:

“Killiwe Nwaozize Nwachukwu Abeg, please assist me in carrying my burden.”

Great Ibeabuchi, also known as Pistor Killer of Ngodo Isuochi, the Lion of Africa, was a legendary Superman who participated in and prevailed in the 1960s Kill-We Nwachukwu.


In summary of the legend Killi-We Nwachukwu: A man named Killi-We Nwachukwu was said to have incredible strength, and he was known for his impressive feats, such as lifting and carrying objects that seemed impossible for a person to move. He was also said to be able to stop cars with his bare hands, even when the car was moving at high speed. Whether or not these stories are true, the legend of Killi-We Nwachukwu lives on and continues to be passed down from generation to generation.
