What Exactly is Owambe?
If you’ve lived in the western part of Nigeria for a while, you must be familiar with the term Owambe/Owanbe.
Owambe connotes a social occasion or gathering where guests wear a particular uniform and celebrate with loud music, food, and drinks.
Such parties usually have flamboyant actions such as spraying money in the air, colourful attires with gele, etc. All these contribute to making the party an interesting one.
However, the literal meaning of Owanbe is it is there.
So, we can say that what the Yoruba people of Nigeria who own the term mean is that “the party is happening there.”
There’s usually enough to eat and dine in such social gatherings. Little wonder they say Yoruba people like to party.
Because, well… They love owambe.
Moreso, every owambe has its uniform for guests to show solidarity. This is what is called Aso ebi.
