This article offers a case-specific examination of the effects of colonialism on a local culture and economy - Aso-oke of South-Western Nigeria. In so doing, it provides more evidence to further the assertion that the economic dependency that resulted from colonialism was not an accident, but rather an intentional outcome. This article serves as an excellent example of how current economic and social circumstances cannot be fully understood without substantial knowledge of the past. Through examination of Aso-oke this article used primary data generated through qualitative techniques, archival records and other secondary data to engage research issues. The article concluded that the development and economic history of Aso-oke, hold the prospect for understanding the complications, complexities, contestations and contextualities of the contemporary development of Africa and beyond.
