mr.ajaks : There are 3 major ethnic groups in Edo state Nigeria; Bini, Esan and Afemai (Etsako, Akoko Edo and Owan). Almost all the ethnic groups owe their origin to Benin City. This explains their similarity in language or dialects. . The people of Bini have one of the richest dress cultures in West Africa. Which is exactly the same as the dress culture of the pre-colonial Benin kingdom. They are known for their beads, body marks, bangles, anklets, and raffia work . Various festivals are held in Benin City yearly to celebrate various historic occasions and seasons. Igue festival is the most popular of the festivals where the Oba celebrates the history and culture of his people and blesses the land and the people. . I am Edo myself from Owan clan and we look forward to welcoming you one day Deontay..
