Grand Durbar – 1977 – Kaduna, Nigeria


**Unable to attend the Durbar celebrations this year, I searched my library for this magazine article by Gulf, March/April 1977 to commemorate the Grand Durbar –  Festac 77 – Kaduna. (Forty years ago, my first son was 9 months old, living in Apapa as we still do today! Note the traditional dress in recent durbar is not much different from the tradition dress of forty years ago i.e. indigo turbans, guards escorting the Emir, drummers and horn player .)
