No wonder some parts of Nigeria worship the White Man. If as recent as 1870s the elite's wives were dressing like this, what of their common people?

Some people may not know it but King Jaja of Opobo was an Igbo slave from Orlu in present day Imo state who was sold into slavery. I read somewhere that they still speak some form of Igbo in Opobo.

The tallest of the wives, the second standing from the right left has a modern babe's body. Flat tummy, good bréãsts, tall, an hourglass shape; she could pass for a model.
King Jaja has eyes for good women.

Not some form but crystal clear Igbo. You will think you are in Imo state.
