Why is Igbo traditional wrestling contest important?
Majority of the Igbo kids born outside Nigeria have no knowledge of what an Igbo wrestling contest is. In the past, and in fact in majority of Igbo cultures, a man must demonstrate that he can take care of and protect his wife by demonstrating that he is a warrior through an Igbo traditional wrestling contest. At other Igbo cultures two or more men seeking a woman’s hand in marriage could be subjected to a wrestling match.
The Igbo wrestling content is also used as a demonstration strength most especially in settling complicated disputes. It differs greatly from the world wrestling matches that you watch on television. The Igbo wrestling is full of enactment and skill. In most cases, the wrestling can start and end in a few minutes depending on how skillful the wrestlers are.
In Canada, the Igbo Union of Canada is taking the lead to promote and teach the Igbo culture and tradition to millions of Igbo kids around the world most especially in Canada. It will be fun to watch!
The Igbo Cultural Night is an annual event that brings together Igbos from all walks of life to witness, demonstrate and rekindle the rich Igbo cultural heritage through a cultural promotion.
It will be Loud in Toronto. Jane Street will be closed !!
