Traditional Fulani outfit (Designed by Babatunde Ajiboye)

This is a traditional Fulani outfit women wear to trade their famous food called fura da nono. Occasionally, it is also worn by a potential bride as she watches multiple men fight in an arena hoping to win her marriage. Who ever wins the fight wins her. The countries in Africa where the Fulani are present include Mauritania, Senegal, Guinea, The Gambia, Mali, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Benin, Burkina Faso, Guinea Bissau, Cameroon, Côte d'Ivoire, Niger, Chad, Togo, the Central African Republic, Liberia, Sudan and Egypt. Most Fulani's religion is Islam.
