To be the life of the party at a Nigerian wedding is to make sure you have the right ensembles; your aso ebi style must be popping, your shoe must be on point and of cause you have to have your crown-the Gele. An owambe (traditional party) outfit is considered incomplete without the addition of your Gele. The Gele make’s everything look better, coupled with your on point make up you know that you are ready for that party.
