Madame Solange

Do I love #Owambe like kids love candy? Well yes. I was caught in the act attending two #Owambe parties last weekend. This time was a traditional wedding ceremony merging the Yoruba and Igbo cultures. It’s nice to see lots of inter-cultural marriages between Nigerians.

The color scheme was Green and Peach and remember #Owambe is all about loud Music, good food, flowing Agbada’s and lots of Gele (Headgear). This time we captured a few scenes from the well-attended event held here in Lagos.The Music was off the hook and the food? Sumptuous! The ambiance was filled with euphoric people considering the merging of cultures and there were lots of exciting scenes to behold.

See a collection of Madame Solange’s #Owambe moments at this event.
