Owambe: In The Spirit of Celebration

Spirit of Celebration

Owambe, which simply means “It Is Here”, is used to depict the Nigerian party, popularly common among the Yorubas. Owambe in time past were festivals that took the centre stage in the traditional African society, but celebrations have morphed into a whole new level. They no longer happen at specific times of the year; they now occur every Saturday. Today, no Nigerian weekend is complete without an Owambe party and it is usually characterised by a show of luxury, lavish spending, colour, extravaganza, paparazzi, lots of food, music, dance and networking.

One of the features of a proper Owambe is
Aso Ebi: Aso Ebi is described as Nigerian outfits made from matching fabric to be worn by a group of people to a party, wedding, or funeral, as a uniform. Wearing Aso Ebi has its benefits; several times, it dictates the kind of treatment the wearer gets at the party, especially with regards to food and souvenirs.

Here are some classy Aso Ebi styles that will make you stand out at any Owambe.
