Seh-Dong-Hong-Be

Seh-Dong-Hong-Beh of the Dahomey Amazon

Her name means God speaks True and as a little girl, a little over ten-years-old, she was chosen to be an Amazon warrior and later was appointed as a leader of the Dahomey amazon and led the all-female army to defeat the Egba people as at just 16. Seh-Dong -Hong-Beh was not only a young strong female warrior, she was also beautiful and there is a mysterious story that revolves around her death. It will not only be amazing to see this young warrior train with an all-female army, but it will also be exciting to watch her lead them into several wins, win the hearts of the people and the king and recruit the next brave warriors before mysteriously vanishing. Aside from Seh-Dong being the lead character, it will also be interesting to follow the set up of the Dahomey Amazon. This will be a compelling story and we already have an amazing soundtrack to it, Beyonce – Run the world!!!
