The Sharo Festival of the Fulani…Omenka Online

Fulani Tribe

The Fulani people inhabit West Africa and the Sahel region. They have a tradition called sharo.

Sharo occurs when two men wish to marry the same woman. In order to determine who will marry the lady, the men engage in a battle in which they have to suppress their pain.

The one who shows no signs of “weakness” wins the lady’s hand in marriage.
