in Yoruba land, the traditional outfit is the 'iro' the skirt and 'buba' the blouse. i have never been a fan of the attire, i believed it fitted those with super curvy figures better.
the very old 'iro' and 'buba' from the sixties was much shorter and now its back on the fashion scene, i love how fashion always comes back and revamps itself.
In Nigeria its called 'oleku' , the name is so appropriate, the literal meaning would be "its hard to death/ hard core" i guess, LOL!
