Dance Of Our Maidens

Every season awaits our maidens
For the pride of womanhood
Shall unveil her true colour
Colour of her swinging hips
Colour of her moving hands
Colour of her moving lips…
Yes… colours that tell her story
Of whom she is and where she comes from.

Mboppo dance shall unveil her colours
So shall Ndok Ufok Ebe add hers
Asian Ubo Ikpa shall be there
So shall Asian Mbre Iban
These, Akwa Abasi Ibom shall rejoice.

Mboppo dance shall unveil her colours
On Udua Mboppo day she shall come to town
Her confined freedom she must celebrate
That the men folks would take a look
For a life partner, they would choose.

Ndok Ufok Ebe shall add hers
For once in a year she would choose her date
In folk songs of dance and complain
She would alert the entire community
The plight of maltreatment by her husband

Asian Ubo Ikpa shall be there
So shall Asian Mbre Iban
In combined colour of songs and dancing
They would share in a united purpose
A word in songs they came to remind
We are beautiful and eligible
Let the unmarried young men take a look.

Dance of our maidens, guided in our cultures
Colour of our dance, displayed in its richness
Our maidens have found their unique voice
To tell our heritage in the pride of their displays
Just the way it is.
