Secondly, it’s all thanks to history and culture that we should celebrate the art of tying the gele, which is something Nigerians have been culturally programmed to do especially when there is a function to attend.
Like everything else in Fashion, the gele goes through some reform every now and then. Over time, styles like asake gele, avant-garde, onile gogoro, take a bow, abebe gele, Boys follow-me, ceiling fan, hand fan and oleku gele have become popular for a period before bowing out and you can trust that the change is constant.
