Photos: Edo man shaves his head in honour of the late Oba of Benin

 A young Benin man, Felix Osemwengie Isere, has decided to honour the Oba of Benin by observing a Benin tradition that requires all Benin males to shave all their hair when the Oba dies.This is what he wrote........
In obedience of the ever respected Benin tradition, I finally shaved my hair today...my Oba was the greatest king and patriarch that ever lived on earth and we will all miss him, and forever honour him.
Tradition must be obeyed, no matter our level of education or civilization.

Goodbye Oba Erediawa!!!
 There is one snag though, there ought to be absolutely no hair.......As in gorimakpa. Oh well, at least he made an effort.



 
His hair before the cut.
