It has become Nigerians’ tradition to sell Aso ebi whenever the need for partying comes up. While some people go as far as using Aso ebi as a means to select who enters the arena, others use it as a way of generating money and profits. However the case may be, one cannot do away with such tradition of buying an Aso ebi as it has become a tradition in most part of the country, especially among the Yorubas.
Nigerians shared their experience on the worst Aso ebi they have bought…
I think it’s the one I bought N5,000 and it’s Ankara. The cloth shrank thereafter. Before getting any Aso ebi’ I think I watch out. And I might not buy Aso ebi’, especially Ankara that is N5.000 again.
The worst Aso ebi I can remember is the one sold at a high price and the cloth is not even good. The day I collected the cloth that is when I noticed that it’s not good because it faded after washing it. Since then I have not been buying any Aso ebi the woman sell again.
If I buy any Aso ebi I use to have it in mind that I will just wear it to the party. After the party, there is nothing more. That means I have got the return on investment. Because I count it as fees to eat in parties.
I’ve not had worst Aso ebi experience. Because I hardly drop money for Aso ebi except the person is a family or close friend.
I hardly buy Aso ebi but if it is compulsory for me to buy Aso ebi I will look at the quality before I buy it. If it worth the amount that is sold then I can buy but I never experienced any worst Aso ebi before.
The worst Aso ebi I bought is the one sold for me N10,000. I bought it because it’s gate pass. But unfortunately, when getting to the party it was not worth it at all. I did not eat at that party. Since then I have said I am not buying any Aso ebi again and I have not been buying it.
People just sell Aso ebi because they want to gain they don’t care about quality. I can remember the one I bought for my area, the woman sold it for N3000 and the cloth was sold in the market N1500 and is original Ankara. After the day I wore it to the party I could not wear it again
