agbada definition and meaning

What is an "agbada"?

An agbada is a traditional flowing gown worn by men in West Africa, particularly in Nigeria and some parts of Ghana. It is a wide and loose-fitting garment that is usually made of cotton or silk fabric and features intricate embroidery and designs. Agbada is typically worn on special occasions such as weddings, religious ceremonies, and important social events. It is often paired with a matching cap called a fila or a gele head wrap. The style of agbada varies depending on the region and ethnic group, with some featuring long, billowing sleeves and others being shorter with more fitted sleeves. The agbada is considered a symbol of wealth and status in many African cultures.
