MASQUERADE DANCE FROM OGBONA





I had some swell time at Ogbona,Etsako Central Local Government Area of Edo State,Mid-western Nigeria during the last Easter watching the best of Anvwianwu Masquerade dance popularly called Illo.The masquerades were so colorful and a real beauty to behold.Ogbona and Etsako land in general have a very rich dance and music culture. Ogbona is home to Etsako leading music stars,Chief Benji Igbadumhe,Late 'General' Bolivia Osigbemhe and Young Constantinople Bolivia,who has very well taking over leadership of his late father's (Gen.Bolivia) band.
