Asaba, Akwa-Ocha, Nsala - Between Lynxxx and I

Posted in: , , , , ,

For music video romance last week, I selected Lynxxx's Fine Lady video, and threw out a small challenge. I put up that picture above as the clue and the correct answer came in with the first few comments. Since I promised to share some thing on this blog if that happened, this is me sticking to my word. I may not be a Fine Lady, but Atala is just as hunky as Lynxxx, without the pink hat :)





As it happens, Lynxxx is actually from Asaba, and the (akwa ocha) white cloth is sorta like our official traditional wear. I love that cloth and insisted I would use it for my first traditional wedding outfit. Since then I've seen it used in a few weddings of people from Asaba and Delta North in general. It looks great in Lynxxx's video and I'm proud of him for promoting our culture. I want to see more of that in other Nigerian videos.

Finally, I hear that Nsala and pounded yam is Lynxxx's favorite meal, that's also a gurantee to put Atala in a very good mood. Yes, my husband is a convert to the greatness that is Asaba. We're just too much. I hope no one would try to argue that :)

BTW, to all single ladies out there, I hear Lynxxx is single too. #thankmelater

  7. This is very nice. I like that yours is "shine shine". lol.

    I am marrying an asaba man in 6 weeks. My mum in law is getting my akwa ocha custom made for me. I wonder if she will kill me if I tell her I have changed my mind and want your design instead?

  8. OOO Myne i LOVE your pics. My mother got me akwa-ocha for my wedding even though we are from onitsha. Mum is from Asaba though. I went the real trad way - double wrapper with a blouse and "ehulu" Coral Beads.

    I love that you used yours to make an outfit. So trendy! The pic of you sitting on Atala's lap is so "Nollywoodish" hehehhehe i like.

    1. LOL...thanks. My mum suggested the double wrapper, but I felt it would swamp my small frame. As for nollywood, you know I'm old school?

  11. Myne, as someone chopping from a Delta Igbo woman's put, I concur. Una too mush, and this is for every department. Who even tell u sey u no fine? abegi, make we hear word!

    Now for anonymous 14, 2012 8:12 AM, I thought the name reverted back to it's original Ibuzor as against the "Ibusa" that the natives refused to pronounce.
