About this event

The third Edition of the Nigeria Masquerade Exhibition hosted by WeLead, SixSense Entertainment, and Culturally Naija is scheduled to be held in the Houston Galleria area in recognition of Nigeria's anniversary of independence. It will be unique in nature representing key tribal groups from Nigeria.

Featured Masquerades include Egungun, Okonko, Ekpe, and Eyo. Many Nigerian societies have a rich tradition of masquerades. Masquerades are a symbol of culture and customs. They are normally portrayed in colorful robes accompanied by traditional dancers or music. The masks adorned are determined by tradition and beliefs.

There will be a display of art pieces provided by local artists: Ofilidesigns and Oluseyi Soyege.
