Ogaga’s painting portrays a dry, dusty easterly or northeasterly wind of Harmattan in a Northern Nigerian town. Ogaga explores the tradition and culture of the Northern pastime of the Durbar. The sport heralds the turban ceremonies of Emirs, Sultans and the elite. Horses and their riders are adorned in brilliant coloured attires and caps in order to show royalty and wealth.  Ogaga uses natural colours here to give emphasis to the topography and the age long architecture of this region. The painting is an impression of a typical Northern Nigerian landscape, which dates back to the 17th century and beyond.
