Ijele is bold, Majestic, great and spiritual. It is the only Masquerade in Igbo land that has the powers to perform ceremonies for great personalities like the Kings and very high titleholders.
In Ijele, one can see these spiritual powers even in Kanyeyachukwu’s colour delivery. The red is bold strong and spiritual.
