Think about this: ‘Blings’, with Aso oke?
Never in the history of Yoruba culture has it ever been predicted that the advent of civilization and industrialization would influence the style and application of many Yoruba cultural attires (especially Aso oke) as much as it has today. In fact, one can say for sure that the original inventors of Aso oke will not recognize their invention if they were to see it today, due to the many changes that have been subtly introduced to it to make it more appealing and more applicable to more people.
That’s how much modernism has influenced our culture. And the interesting aspect of all this is that it appears to have even made our traditional dresses more acceptable and applicable to a wider audience.
Blings Aso Oke designs are the revolutionary breed of Aso oke in town at the moment. They are bright and shiny, and they offer you good value for your money. The word ‘blings’ or ‘bling-blings’ is used in reference to the gold and silver jewellery typically rocked by hip-hop stars in their music videos and at events, so it is quite surprising to see bling elements in Aso oke. To clear the air, ‘blings aso oke’ designs does not refer to the use of hip hop ‘bling-blings’ with aso oke, but the incorporation of special stones, crystals and adornments into the fabric and design of Aso oke to give off what I’d call the ‘bling effect’.
