A video has emerged on social media in which a masquerade saw a young lady and stopped to chat with her. A 'Mmanwu' is a traditional masquerade of the Igbo people of Southeastern Nigeria. They are performed only by males in exclusive secret societies and involve the use of elaborate, colourful costumes that are meant to invoke ancestral spirits.
The masquerade, obviously mesmerised by the young lady's curvy shape and beauty, requested her number and when she obliged, he asked if it was her WhatsApp number.
In the video, which was shared on Twitter by JJ Omojuwa, the masquerade was flanked by some assistants as he chatted with the young lady.

As expected, Nigerians took to the comment section of the post to express their thoughts.
A Twitter user with the handle @IBbnaija wrote:
"All these digital ancestors don’t have demons controlling them any more. Who born you to stand and talk to analogue ancestors."
