Long May You Reign. The Warri People and Culture were a big part of my childhood. My oldest friend to this day, Omasan; is from Warri. Family gatherings at their house were always memorable, especially whenever her grandmother Sisi (who only spoke Itsekiri to you whether you could understand a word of what she was saying or not), was round. My baptism to the culture and language. I will never forget all the silver at Roli's wedding.
