The Ogba dance is popular among the culturally conscious Igala people. It has existed for decades and it is attached with so much value that apart from being a means of entertainment it constitutes a crucial part of the final burial rites of any renown traditional Igala personality.

With mortar, flute, and talking drum as the essential music tools, the beautifully adorened masquerades often dance with  amazing fast frenzied steps and fascinating acrobatic displays that elicits admirations and ovations from the usually tumultuous spectators.

In ancient Igala society, there were several competitions where numerous masquerades danced in turn all through the night and watched by great men and youths to the exclusion of the female folks. The best dancer goes home with laurels (Uloko).  Among the Igalas it was a good way of entertainment and communal integration before the advent of football, electronic games, movies etc

With nolstagia, Igala youths and elites in Abuja, with Ebo WAEC as the chief convener, have reawakened this culture and established it as an annual carnival in the diaspora, starting from Abuja for now. The maiden edition held in December of 2018.

Tonight, (14th December, 2019) the second edition will hold at the popular ELROSE GARDEN, Jos street by Abacha Road Mararaba.

I commend the organizers and wish all participating masquerades and spectators a wonderful night filled with fun.

I hail my Igala nation.

Ogbo Shegaba   (2019).
