Asoebi used for Queen Elizabeth’s burial to be placed in London museum

What started as a mere social media trend has taken an interesting turn.

According to Founder, Ovation Group, Dele Momodu, the viral photo of an aso-ebi with the imprint of the face of the late Queen Elizabeth has been requested to be placed in a London museum.

He wrote on his Instagram page: "It started as a joke and one of us took it seriously. The outfits were turned around in four days and delivered from Lagos to London the day before the event.

"It went viral, was on sky news and the Palace have now requested for it to be displayed at London Museum."

He shared the post after some Nigerian aunties made sure to represent the country in London.

In the viral photo, they all rocked matching aso-ebi in different colors with a photo of the late Queen Elizabeth printed boldly on it.

In the caption of the post, Momodu revealed that the fabrics were sent all the way from Lagos to London in time for the late queen’s burial.

Aso-ebi is known to be a big part of Nigeria's social life.
