I am Amezhi (Ada Odiokwu) Autonomous community in Ekpeye Ethnic Nation, Ahoada West LGA, Rivers State, Nigeria.
I want speak on the way our girls and ladies are Denying the beauty of our great culture, Ekpeye people have their own way of dressing but now in this modern world our girls have Refuse to dress according to the way our forefathers told us.
Am not saying that they should not wear foreign dressing but let them also remember that we have a culture to show the world whom we really are, I could remember a traditional marriage I when in Ahoada East Everybody dress like a foreigner and the moment I got there the old women started Praising me.
Our culture is our identity, as I am now, anywhere they invite me for a program like, Traditional marriage, festival etc, I go with my traditional dressing to tell the world where I come from. Don’t let development kill our culture and traditions, because the people we’re looking up to have their different kinds of traditions that they didn’t joke with, Let promote our culture our in any opportunity given to us.
My advice goes to the girls whom are in school, many of our girls in campus can not even promote our culture in their cultural day in school.
