It’s another weekend and in Lagos, every weekend brings about an owambe to attend. You are sure to see people in their aso ebi hurrying to wedding or burial ceremonies. Whether it is on the Island or the mainland part of the city, the atmosphere and the groove is the same.

The Host’s Best Friend (s)

If you attend an owambe in Lagos, these people need no introduction. They take the (un)solicited role of the helper. Even if they didn’t make it known before the ceremony that they are close to the host, the owambe presents a great opportunity to ‘form familiarity’. You can’t but notice them as they slide from one corner of the space to another. Even if you are particularly closer to the host than they are, don’t try to compete with them because it’s a game they know how to play very well.

The Gate Crasher(s)

It is almost impossible to attend an owambe in Lagos and not meet people who have attended without invitation from the host. Some of them don’t even know the purpose of the ceremony but they stick out like a sore thumb. The gate crasher doesn’t even care if his outfit matches or is similar to the one every other person has on. Some of them might actually jus be pa$$ers-by who decided to take advantage of the free meal. They don’t care how you perceive them though so need given them a bad eye!

The Take-Home Mama

Without attacking a single $ex, the take-home mama is that woman who feels her children and grandchildren must have a bite from everything she was served at the owambe. She is likely to ask for a nylon or a polythene bag to put left overs and bits of the food and drinks served at the owambe. Some might actually hand a bag to be filled with jollof rice which is a regular food at an owambe. She doesn’t care how annoyed you are as long as she gets some food to take home.

The Glutton

That’s the guy who thinks the world will end the following day and has therefore decided to eat every food he can lay hands on. The glutton combines all the food served at the owambe and forces everything down his throat. Rice and amala, moi moi and salad; every combination goes for the glutton.


The person actually craves attention so you are sure to notice the person: tyre-sized ear rings, heavy necklace, far reaching perfume, flashy lipstick and click clacking shoes. If the host cannot stand the intimidation, only God knows what will happen.
