Traditional Wedding

During my traditional wedding, I realised how little I know about my culture and tradition and I do not like the fact women are disadvantaged by many culture and tradition. I am not saying that tradition and culture are bad, no, in fact, I love culture, this is a big part of who I am, I love the fact that in Nigeria alone, we have so many types of languages, food and fashion. This helps tell many people apart, which was/ is also one of our biggest problem in the world, as well as our blessing.

I hate what I see

Hello and welcome,

I find myself being in conflict with myself most times. Because I know who I am, and what I look like, sometimes, I look at myself in the mirror and hate what I see. Most people say we were not born to know the difference between race, gender, body types etc. However, some have grown up believing in so many false descriptions of who they are or what they should be.

“Oh, you should not eat this or that, can’t you see your mother and her genes, you will end up like that, UGLY!” or “if you bleach your skin you will be marriable” or “when you are in a room with 6 men, 5 of them will want to sleep with you”. Don’t you just find it funny that your beauty is the same thing that causes people to assume you are dumb? Or being comfortable with your curves and your body is the reason why you should be raped.

Culture in Fashion

So, Culture is the ideas, customs, and social behaviour of a particular people or society. For culture to work it starts with one person’s behaviour which eventually spread like a wildfire.

What is my current culture of fashion? well this is a long list of things but these are a few;

  • I am not FAT
  • I am not an UGLY BLACK GIRL
  • I do not need to be PERFECT
  • My style is my STYLE
  • I know my pocket and what I CAN AFFORD
  • Everyone cannot love me but I a few people who REALLY LOVE ME

Nigerian Fashion: Tubo

 

Welcome, I hope you are doing okay? This is a sneak peek of an old outfit I have not yet shared with you.
So, I am a big fan of anything #buynigeria and I am in awe of how creative and talented Nigerians are.

From the discovery of oil, the oil sector within Nigerian grew and this became the main source of the economy within Nigeria. But I strongly believe there has been a shift. Nigerian is full of creative geniuses. It gets me so frustrated that Nigerians do not harness their creativity but rather choose the norm to study a degree in an institution that hardly gets them anywhere. Now folks, don’t get me wrong, I am an advocate for education, however in an environment such as Nigeria where your education does not guarantee a job, the focus should be given to investing in skills such as weaving, tailoring, building, pottery and similar. The Nigerian entertainment industry surely proves this.
