Agbada styles are among the most popular and interesting traditional attires worn by men in West Africa particularly Nigeria.
The interesting part is that Agbada is just one of the name this attire is called, according to Wikipedia
Agbada is known by various names, depending on the ethnic group wearing them: Agbada (Yoruba , Dagomba), boubou (from the Wolof word mbubb), babban riga (Hausa), mbubb (Wolof), k’sa or gandora (Tuareg), darra’a Maghrebi Arabic, grand boubou (in various Francophone West African countries) and the English term of gown. The Senegalese boubou, a variation on the grand boubou described below, is also known as the Senegalese kaftan.
its origin lies with the clothing worn by Islamic Tukulor, now this explains why it’s mostly associated with the Hausas in Nigera.
