Theasoebijunkie stars : Ms Stephanie Cook

Hello everyone,
Welcome to the month of February!  And Valentine’s Day is almost here so you can now book for our annual Valentine fabric hampers . We have the male and female packages which will blow the minds of your loved ones as they will always remember you anytime they wear the fabrics.
To  order please call 08186961269, call/whatsapp 07033040834 or send a mail to theasoebijunkie@gmail.com.
P. S: We deliver within and outside of Lagos.

Back to today’s post,  Ms Stephanie Cook got our contact online and sent us a message on whatsapp requesting for two asoebi fabrics for a wedding in Enugu State.

She wanted a yellow fabric for a set of guests and another blue fabric for another set of guests.
We exchanged pictures and concluded on a yellow tulle fabric embellished with stones and pearls which is the same fabric in orange color for a wedding I posted earlier HERE
And then a tree inspired sequined tulle lace fabric in cobalt blue.
We got the fabric ready and sent to Enugu in December and also delivered to some people in Lagos.

The guests in yellow used a cobalt blue asooke as headtie while guests in blue had yellow onjawu asooke as headtie and they both looked elegant and  turned out pretty in different styles to grace the occasion.

Here are some of the pictures of our stars as they shine in both color combos :

A very big thank you to Ms Cook for trusting us and patronizing us.
We look forward to doing more business with you.
God bless you abundantly!

CORALS OF THE NIGER-DELTA

Happy Sunday everyone,
Hope you had a great time yesterday? Did you attend any wedding and will like to send pictures? Please send via WhatsApp 07033040834 as I have issues downloading attachments from my mails at the moment.

Last year I made a post on the beauty of the corals of the Niger-delta HERE and showcased different brides looking exceptionally beautiful on their big day.

Today am bringing another edition to showcase the unique culture of Niger-Delta part of Nigeria.
Traditional weddings outfits of both the bride and the groom in the Niger-Delta part is absolutely regal but the adorning of the bride with coral beads is what I find fascinating!

These beads comes in different sizes and shapes. But I personally love those huge ones on the neck especially the white ones used by the Kalabari women #breathtaking

Some parts of the Niger-Delta make a complete outfit from these beads for their brides while some tie  George fabric wrapper round her chest and then wear coral beads on top.
I also like the brides that makes a hat from the coral beads and wear that with exquisite coral neck beads on their complete blouse and double wrapper outfits.

Original coral beads are known to be quite expensive and its sometimes transferred from one generation to another. But some jewellers make beautiful plastic coral beads for brides on a budget for lesser price and they still look super gorgeous on their big day.

Let’s see some gorgeous Niger-Delta brides in their gorgeous traditional wedding outfits adorned with different kinds of coral beads to showcase the beauty of the African/Nigerian culture:

DANSHIKI FABRIC

Hello Fabulous friends,

I lived in Kano for about 7 years and I can recall vividly one of the first words I learnt (well the ones that sounds interesting to me anyway) was ‘chikki’. The word sounds like a Chinese word, so I quickly asked the person seating close to me in the cab what that meant and I was told it meant stomach. I was like wow! And kept saying the word to myself chikki! Chikki! Then later changed my rhyme to chicken-chikki (lol)so that I wouldn’t forget the word. Only for me to get to the market and  discover that what we call ‘assorted meat’ in Lagos was also referred to as ‘kayan chikki’ #amazing.

So when I wanted to write this post, I kept wondering what Danshiki meant and what was the story behind the danshiki style because I know danshiki is not a Yoruba word but sounds like a word from the Hausa language. Then I remembered again that while  I was in Kano that  I learnt that ‘Dan’ (not short form of Daniel but an Hausa word) meant ‘son of’.
I discovered this while finding out about the richest man in Africa – Aliko Dangote and was told Dangote meant the Son of Gote.

So I thought Dan- chikki would probably mean ‘son of stomach’ which made some sense since the style is some sort of free top with short sleeves that could hide stomach/pregnancy. *still researching the origin of danshiki*

African fashion (home and abroad) have come to discover the beauty of the danshiki style which can be worn by a male or female. And a fabric have been designed specifically for that style to make it easier for designers  to work with . This fabric can be made into all sorts of stylish outfits and not just the free short sleeve tops.

You can now use the danshiki fabric to make dresses, crop tops, maxi skirts, casual tops etc. If you have an event and the dress code is African, then danshiki is your go-to fabric that you can rock with your partner as it is unisex.

Its comes in different colors with amazing print design all over particularly the neck line which will make you represent your roots anytime especially if you are outside Africa.

Here are some samples of danshiki fabrics that are available for sale. You can call/WhatsApp 07033040834 or 08186961269  to place your order or send a mail to theasoebijunkie@gmail.com and you get it delivered to you ASAP.

ASOEBI LADIES

Nowadays immediately a girl gets engaged,the next thing her friends starts to inquire is the Asoebi for the event or they begin to ask the bride to be if they will be among her ‘Asoebi ladies’.

Personally, I don’t like the term Asoebi Ladies because its like an abuse to the significance of the Asoebi culture of our people.
Asoebi is not for a selection of the brides friends but its first of all a family thing.

The Asoebi culture is a beautiful concept by the Yoruba people used to signify oneness and unity amongst a particular family at events celebrated by one of their family member. Most especially at weddings as weddings then was not just about the bride and groom but its about the coming together of two families.
The Asoebi is what is used to identify each family at the event.
The brides family can wear blue for instance while the grooms family can pick white as the color for their own Asoebi.
So everyone can identify those who came for ‘idana’ which means payment of dowry and they can also identify the brides family who will receive the dowry . Although the ceremony is always done at the the bride’s family house unlike now that we use events centers the uniform fabric or color  also exhibits peace amongst each family and they can be reassured that their children are in safe hands.

So you see why I think picking Asoebi for some ladies and tagging them Asoebi Ladies kind of bastardize the original intent of the Asoebi culture.

You can select some friends to be on your bridal train as bride’s maids or confetti girls but not as Asoebi ladies.
The Asoebi fabric is for your family members and everyone you consider as friends and not just some selection of ladies in my own opinion.

What’s your take on the ‘Asoebi ladies’ bug? Share your views in the comments box .
Thank you
