Inyi Agba Oku Masquerade: Pride Of Enugu State (VIDEO) by FARA4GA: 1:31pm On Aug 01, 2021


The mystique surrounding masquerades is one key African/Igbo cultural component that survived western influence. In Igbo land, it is generally believed that masquerades are spirits which spring from the soil, precisely, ant hills.

Though masquerade festival is observed everywhere in Igboland, the celebration and masquerades differ from community to community. Udi (Enugu state) which is where I am from has produced so many great masquerades which have their various functions and prestige within their individual community. Masquerades found in Udi include and not limited to Igaa, Ishi aziza and Inyi-agba-oku.

Inyi-agba-oku masquerade is a wise masquerade and is known for “Igbuevu” which means speaking in proverbs and parables (through musical performances), to the awe and applauds from the audience.

I hope you will enjoy the video...... Please like and share it if you do.
