An Ojiọnụ Masquerade

An Ojiọnụ Masquerade

MASQUERADES IN IGBO LAND (1)

Mask
As a step to the explanation of the full meaning of masquerades, here is a working definition of mask.
‘A mask is a covering for part or all of the face, worn to hide or protect it…’, ‘something that covers your face and has another face painted on it”. (Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary Ed. Sally Wehmeier, Oxford University press, 2000)

Further from make up or outward covering, some people define mask as the condition of covering one’s appearance, true feelings, a person’s real nature.

From THE PLOUGHMAN'S TALK (1)

“However the nation exists,
However it does not,

Wether as West or East
With South or North

Those four wings of it,
Ought to exist as a nut”.

There is no scene as awful as a class that exists together but cannot reason together. It is easier to preach to the stubborn birds that come to feed on your swamp rice than get such a stock to agree with you that “united we stand.”

[From The Ploughman’s Talk (1), P.10.]

You can see them – young and old, tall and short, fat and thin, huge and pint, all alighting from their cars and lacing their boot and wears, heading to the football field and volleyball court. Among them are lawyers, lecturers, coaches, administrators, musicians, engineers, architects, name them. They are however bonded by two significant binding factors-Catholic Priesthood and Sports.
