  1. please i'm curious about this,is it part of tradition to cover mouth with hankerchief?If yes,what does it mean and why is it being done?i just need clarification on this.

    1. Yes F.T, it's part of tradition. I posted an update today explaining that. The Oba is not supposed to smile or talk any how, for the wives, that covering is a sign of submission.
