My Husband’s Ex 2

Pregnancy tests from the hospital. Iyke’s joy knew no bound, he was going to be a father, “I am going to be a father, to an inter-racial child. Oh, how wonderful, what a great news to end the day,  Ike repeatedly showed his excitement. “A good news to relax my mind after a hectic day at the office, my oga questioned everything I did today”, he grinned mischievously.

Her Husband’s Ex 1

Getting married is one of the most fulfilling moment and experience in life, for some people 😃.  OK, but for people from the eastern part of Nigeria and also Nigerians as a whole.

A Masquerade in Stockholm

The Igbo Community in Stockholm last month celebrated their Igbo day. It was an event meant to bring together all Igbo men, women and children living in Stockholm and also friends and colleagues.
Igbo people are from the South Eastern part of Nigeria. They are people from Abia, Anambra, Enugu, Ebonyi, Imo and some parts of Delta speaking Igbos in the country.
They live in most parts of the world, there is no country in the world that you don’t find Igbo people living, working or doing business.
So they trooped out in number during the event to celebrate the New Yam festival. There were masquerade parade,  cultural songs and dance performed by the men, food to eat and a lot to drink.
In my next post, I will tell you more about the New Yam festival and more on Masquerading in Igbo culture and traditions.
😘😄 I am a hardcore Igbo girl.
