In Nigeria, Aso-ebi is a Yoruba phrase meaning “uniformed solidarity dress.” It is famous clothing in Nigeria which has an obvious origin in the Yoruba culture. It is one of the cultural traditions that has forced its ways into the corporate and enlightened world. It originally refers to matching fabrics worn by family members during ceremonies and social events in Nigeria where there is dancing, singing, storytelling and many others. They are very popular in many African countries.
Aso ebi is a Yoruba phrase and the Yoruba people lives in the coastal regions of south western Nigeria. Currently, everybody in Nigeria knows the meaning of the term ‘Aso ebi’ regardless of their ethnicity.
