Time For August Meeting

 The month of August every year witnesses a massive homecoming from different towns and cities across the world of “Igbo women” groups to their matrimonial rural hometowns, where they unite with their rural-based colleagues for what is now popularly known as the “August Meeting.”  

Who is preparing for August meeting this year?

Can you give us a little insight and gist into yours and what actually happens during the meeting?


  1. What is it about?I know nothing about August meeting,those who know should come enlighten me biko.

    1. It's mostly about contributing financially to the growth of the church.

      The meeting lasts for 3 days. 2 days for members, a day for executive members.

      During the meeting, women come with various items they donate in form of offertory and those same items are sold off too just like they do in bazaar.

      The realized cash Is put into treasury bag.

      Most times, the church map out a particular and mount of money they want the women to donate. The money is then divided equally among d members (there's usually an attendance book for all the members both home and abroad).

      This amount is not always much. I think the highest amount I've donated in 1 sitting is 2k or so. Can't remember.

      This amount of money can be paid then or later. All they know is d money must be collected before you enter 6feets. Which is why a clearance form has to be obtained from them before any member can be buried.

      If u r married and not a member till u die, they will only give d family a clearance form after they pay some money. Don't really know d amount. I heard it's BTW 50-100k.

      Some also donate cash voluntarily. ( this is d part some women try to over do and oppress themselves)

      The church has a uniform for d meetings. So no wrapper and blouse oppression whatever.

      For Catholics, it's d usual cwo wrapper and the China white blouse ( the blouse is the same design for everyone). The blouse has to cover your cleavage very well leaving little room for any neck piece u want to show off sef.

      You don't dare wear something else, u'll be fined heavily and embarrassed If u do.

      Even Governor wives who I have seen in some attendance wear the same uniform.

  2. This August Meeting video that came out 7 years ago, you all cant believe it that i have not watched it. Una sure say i dey this country?

    August meeting is all about who wears better blouse, gorge, head tie, get plenty monies, who are on same level with you, who to rub shoulders with. The ones wey no fit buy clothes up to N30,000 get seat for back. They always give them small seat wey carpenter carves.

    Abeg jare, let me go and see if i can eat morning food.

    Someone is making me annoyed this morning and it is just affecting my communication with people, seems am just getting harsh instead of listening to what they are complaining of. May God help me Amen

    1. Who is making my yori yori princess angry?
      A cup of hot tea fall on him or her😁

      You too try and listen to their complaint and may God grant you patience to hear them out. Amen

    2. From my calculation the movie is like 15 years ago.

    3. I've heard this before that it's for show off.

      I maybe wrong though.

    2. No Bloggie. You are not wrong. It's only for married women

    3. But, visitors are also welcome to watch them display their different talents.

  5. I used to be a fan of "August meeting" even though i'm not actually Igbo per say!

    I love it, I used to go to the East with my ex boyfriend and sometimes with my man Igbo girlfriends (most of my friends were/are Igbo). I just flow better with Igbo people.
