Aso-ebi (translation: cloth of the family) is used to refer to the outfits made from matching fabric and pattern worn by family members (though it now applies to anyone who can afford one or would like to wear one) at a wedding ceremony or social event to denote unity, support, and represent sides of the family . l
The phrase is from the Yoruba ethnic group of Western Nigeria , but is now commonly used by all tribes and regions in NigeriaWhatever way you want to see it, ASO EBI has come to stay. It has been fashionable for decades and from one generation to the other. It’s obvious that it won’t leave the Nigerian scene any time soon. You can’t just get enough of it.
