Name: Philo-esther Williams

Age:18
State of origin: Akwa Ibom State

Name of culture: Igbo

I Philo-esther Williams, represents the Igbo culture. Although I am not fully an Igbo girl but I have blood running in my veins and this could be traced to my maternal side,my grand mother to be precise was an Igbo woman.

My apparels; starting from my head tie in Igbo land, it’s called NNUKW ICHAFU ISI, the beads on my neck are called OLA AKA, the other beads on my hands are called the OBA BEADS, my top is made of a TAFETA material and my wrapper is made of a CHIFFON material. I could call this apparel “THE MODERN IGBO”. This costume signifies royality.

One could wear this costume for a fashion show, Wedding ceremony, etc. People with this costume could be found in Abia state,even here in Akwa ibom state.
The most significant thing I love about the Igbo’s is their interest on how to create wealth even with the little the have. They are not idle.

The Igbo’s are the second largest group with people in southern Nigeria. The emanate from the (12) twelve tribes of Israel just like other ethnic group. The Igbos are also known for their folk tales, Proverbs, riddle’s and breaking of kola. It is believe in Igbo land that whosoever brings kola, brings life.
