Eagle Schnapps, Nigeria’s No. 1 prayer drink joined the good people of Onitsha to celebrate the Ofala Festival.

The Ofala Festival, an age long tradition of the Onitsha Kingdom, celebrated only once a year, precisely in the month of October, the period that is the climax of the celebration of the New Yam.

Four days before the festival, the Obi goes into seclusion. He retreats to commune with his ancestors, and to thank them for protecting him and his subjects for the past one year as well as pray for peace and prosperity in the year to come. At the end of the retreat, the Obi emerges during the Ofala to bless his subjects and say prayers for the community.

Ofala is celebrated annually beginning from the coronation of the Obi to his death, the latter of which is called “the last Ofala”. One of the highlights of the festival is the appearance of the Obi in his Ofala Regalia. A Cannon shot announces the entrance of the Obi who is usually dressed in a ceremonial robe and carries a bronze sword on his hand, he walks to the sides of the arena or a third of the arena acknowledging the cheers of the gathering.

During the second appearance, the Obi dances in the arena, something that is rarely seen and his steps cover more distance than the first appearance. Then the visiting chiefs and guests pay homage to the Obi.
