It’s close because they jack all our shit. They have a completely different cultural clothing style ectthe culture seems to be close so Somalis shouldn't freak out when they see something like this.
It’s a big deal because this isn’t just clothing it’s a ceremony, it’s only practiced in south Somalia. When things aren’t protected they are lost. So much of our culture is already lost. I’ve already seen practices that were originally Somali being tossed away because they’re Ethiopian. The few Somalis that still do them being attacked as Oromo. Then you wonder why our culture/language is arabized. Uff !We are neighbors. Why is it such a big deal? Obviously there is going to be cultural overlap, especially the Muslim ones that live near Somalis.
This isn’t clothing. We already know Oromo take Somali clothing. It’s a cultural ceremony.Do west africans and arabs argue about what they wear at their weddings. Wallahi this is really disappointing
