Typical Niger-Delta Traditional Wear
I love my Niger-Delta people – dem no dey carry last for fashion. Their native wear is too fab, and they’re very proud of their heritage.
At any traditional engagement event, you’ll see them all glammed up in wrappers and double-fabric gele headties with gorgeous Niger-Delta blouses, while some are dolled up in red coral beads and beaded head-crowns (okuku).
The Niger-Delta men are not left out. Grooms are usually dressed like a royal in wrappers or dressed in trousers paired with Niger-Delta men’s Etibor shirts and hat (similar to former President Jonathan’s style).
The Niger-Delta grooms look is usually completed with a costume walking-stick. You can find the men’s styles I described in the video above.
