PROCESS OF IBA UBI FESTIVAL IN UGA

published 24 Jun, 2020 by Uga News

AFTER DIGGING OUT THE YAM BY HRH IGWE CHIDI EZENWUGO FROM HIS FARM, FOLLOWED BEHIND WILL BE ISI OBIS AND CROWD. THE YAM WILL BE WASHED AND PLACED ON A TABLE AT THE CENTER OF THE PALACE. HRH IGWE CHIDI EZENWUGO (OBI OF UGA), WILL COME OUT AND SIT ON A CHAIR WELL PLACED NEAR THE TABLE. THEN HE WILL PICK UP CLEAN KNIFE AND SLICE THE YAM INTO FOUR UNEQUAL PARTS. THE FOUR SLICES OF YAM ARE FOR THE FOUR VILLAGES IN UGA. UMUEZE VILLAGE (WILL PICK THE HEAD AS FIRST SON) OKA VILLAGE (WILL PICK NEXT TO THE HEAD AS SECOND SON) UMUORU VILLAGE (WILL PICK THE NEXT AS THIRD SON) WHILE AWARASI VILLAGE WILL PICK THE TAIL AS LAST BORN. ONE FUNNY PART OF THIS SHARING OF THE YAM SLICES TO VILLAGES IS THE ACT OBI AWARASI USED TO PUT ON. HE ALWAYS COMPLAIN THAT HE USED TO GET SMALL AND HE WILL BE ACTING AS LAST BORN WHO WANT TO CRY OVER HIS FATHER'S CHEATING ON HIM. AT THIS, MANY PEOPLE WILL COME OUT AND START GIVING HIM MONEY NOT TO CRY, THEY WILL PET HIM AS LAST BORN (YOU KNOW HOW IT IS IN YOUR FAMILIES NAH. LAST BORNS NA WAOOO). AFTER GATHERING THE MONEY, HE WILL NOW TELL IGWE THAT HE IS OK WITH WHATEVER HE GOT. AT THIS, PEOPLE APPLAUD HIM AND HE WILL TAKE AWARASI SHARE AND LEAVE.
