Igue festival is a celebration with its origin in the Benin Kingdom. It was originally celebrated as a festival to renew Oba Ewuare’s magical powers. One tradition states that the festival date coincided with the marriage of Ewuare to a wife named Ewere. Celebrated between Christmas and New Year, the festival includes the Oba’s blessing of the land and his people. During the Igue ritual season, the Oba is prohibited from being in the presence of any non-native person
