Igbabonelimi

The Igbabonelimi, as a type of masquerade, in Ishan,  is a form of social dance mainly organised by the Esan people of Edo State. It is one of the most popular dances in the region. It involves graceful movements, somersaults, and a lot of flips, exciting jumps and kicks all to the tune of the beating of the drums and instruments.

It is majorly an all men’s affair, and women are usually forbidden from wearing the mask nor are they to venture within the dance circle when the dance is going on; and like most dances in Africa traditional cultures, the Igbabonelimwin dances are derived from the social and religious traditions of the Esan people.

It is really an interesting dance to behold. No other ethnic groups in the world has been able to replicate this form of dance till date. It is the exclusive preserve of the Esan people of Edo State.
