In Western Africa, Nigeria to be precise, the “gele” is an accessory worn with a traditional Nigerian outfit. It is usually worn by females with a traditional attire, for special occasions like weddings, naming ceremonies, burials, church services, and religious celebrations.
Geles are worn by African Women to complement their African outfit. To be honest, Gele is the crown of the outfit, the frame of the picture, the highlight etc. Gele gives a woman dignity, respect, attitude. It’s the fashion accessory that the African woman (particularly the West African woman) cannot do without.
