Important notice, to answer number 2 question, I am from Africa (Nigeria precisely).
I belong to African Ethnic Group (Yoruba people)
The Yorùbá people are an African ethnic group that inhabits western Africa. The Yoruba constitute about 44 million people in total. The majority of this population is from Nigeria, where the Yorùbá make up 21% of the country’s population, according to the CIA World Fact book, making them one of the largest ethnic groups in Africa.
Most Yoruba people speak the Yoruba language, which is the Niger-Congo language with the largest number of native, L1 or first language speakers.
In Yoruba culture, different occasions require wearing different outfits. Usually, Yoruba traditional clothes are made up of a wide range of different materials. The basic Yoruba clothing material is Aso-Oke (the cloth of various colours and patterns, which are sewn in different styles). Aso-Oke comes in many patterns and colour schemes.
