Aboh Kingdom is a vibrant city along the coast of the Niger River and home to the headquarters of Ndokwa East Local Government Area in Delta State Nigeria. It is also home to late highlife music phenomenon, Ali Chukwuma., amidst rising stars like Okwei Odili, and Uti of Big Brother Nigeria fame amongst others. YEAH!
This highly cultural and musical people of Aboh are said to have migrated from Benin kingdom, during the reign of Oba Ozolua, towards the end of the 15th century.
Also famed for warriors, and natural resources, the people of Aboh and those from elsewhere congregate every March, to celebrate Ojeh festival amidst parades, boat regatta and parties in the town.
Here are some scenes from this year’s Ojeh. We hope to make a more comprehensive video of the festival next year, as this one barely does justice to this amazing beauty of/in Nigeria, Africa.
