The Igbo people of Eastern Nigeria are an enterprising ethnic group, and are noted for their rich culture and traditions, high business acumen and industrious savvy. In Nigeria they dominate the commercial hub running upwards of thirty five percent (35%) of small business enterprise in the country. It is common to get invited to an igbo traditional marriage (Igbankwu) and certainly worth witnessing one.

The traditional marriage is often held at the bride’s compound, where the guests welcome the couple and invite them in
front of the families.

First the bride goes around selling boiled eggs to the guests, showing to both families that she has the capability to open a shop and make money.

Then, the bride’s father fills a wooden cup (Iko) with palm wine and passes it on to the girl while the groom finds a place between the guests. It is the custom for her to look for her husband while being distracted by the invitees.

Only after she has found the groom, she offered the cup to him and he sipped the wine, the couple is married traditionally.
