There are lot strange customs and traditions from different parts of the world but honestly this very one we came across intrigued us a lot.
It demonstrates the importance some tribes place on sekz, with relation to a man’s potency. In an era when several women divorce their men on the grounds of impotency from their male counterparts, this practice could be worthwhile.
We culled the story from face2faceafrica.com. See below for the full report:
How much influence should aunties have on their nieces? In many African cultures, aunties provide counselling to their young nieces as they age from adolescence to adulthood. When it comes to marriage, these aunties prepare their nieces for the challenges that lie ahead.
But for the Banyankole people in Southwestern Uganda, the aunt does more than the above, especially during the marriage.
he primary responsibility of the aunt is to confirm that the groom is potent and that the bride has defended her virginity before the marriage is consummated. As a potency test for the groom, the aunt is sometimes required to have sex with the groom for confirmation of his potency and virility.
She also has to “test” if the bride is still a virgin before they are allowed to consummate their marriage.
In other traditions, the aunt is said to go as far as listening in or watching as the bride and groom have sex in order to prove the couple’s potency.
Inasmuch as this practice may sound weird, it shows how the people of Banyankole, particularly the Bahima tribe hold virginity in high esteem.
As soon as a Banyankole girl is eight, she goes through a lot of restrictions to prepare her for marriage.
When other children her age in other cultures are out having fun and playing, a girl in this part of Uganda is mostly kept indoors, where she is fed beef and millet porridge and forced to drink milk in large quantities so that she becomes fat.
Being fat is synonymous with beauty among the Banyankoles.
When she starts developing breasts, she is also asked by her parents to abstain from sexual activities.
It is the duty of a Banyankole father to find a wife for his son as he pays the bridewealth as well. This consists of some cows, goats and pots of beer, depending on how rich a person is.
Once the bride price is paid, the marriage preparations begin. On the wedding day, there is a lot of feasting at the bride’s home, where the father is expected to slaughter a bull.
At the bridegroom’s home, there is another feast where the marriage is consummated. This is after the bride’s aunt has “tested” her niece’s purity and slept with the groom to also check his potency.
Do You Know Patapaa’s Girlfriend, Pata Pichy?
Patapaa has stated that reports that he was dating a girl called Pata Pichy were false. According to him, the whole idea of Pata Pichy was cooked up by bloggers. Patapaa also told Delay that he is his type of girl
‘One Corner’ hitmaker Patapaa has denied reports that he was in a relationship with a lady named Pata Pichy.
According to Patapaa, he is currently not dating anyone and the reports were fabrications form bloggers.
Reports emerged on social media about a month ago that Patapaa had found himself a very beautiful girlfriend.
The reports which had the photo of a good-looking girl claimed that the lady was called Pata Pichy.
But speaking in an interview on the Delay Show, Patapaa pointed out that the rumour mongers were only using his association with Shatta Wale and his baby mama, Shatta Michy to project the so-called Pata Pichy on him.
“The bloggers always say Shatta Wale is my father, therefore, they try to associate everything about me to him,” he said.
Explaining further, he stated the photo of the girl which were going rounds were from a video shoot for a collaboration he did with a Liberian artiste.
“I went to Liberia for a show….there is this artiste who wanted to feature me on his song so he hooked up immediately he heard I’m in town.
“After our recording then he said we should shoot the video for it because I might not come back again to Liberia when he is ready.
“He organised what will be needed for the shoot including the girls you saw me with on social media. I am not going out with any Pata Pichy,” Patapaa explained.
When Delay insisted that he mentions the girl warming his bed currently, a visibly uncomfortable Patapaa repeated that there is no one but he knows where to turn to when he feels horny.
“As an artiste or a footballer when you are on stage performing, you will definitely get a girl who will be interested to go to bed with you…so once there is a show I will get a girl,” Patapaa stated with excitement.
Patapaa, however, pointed out that considering his ‘tiny body’, it would be better if he got a very well endowed lady for a girlfriend.
And he looked no further than Delay herself saying she was his kind of girl.
Patapaa has been trending on social media since last Saturday’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs).
His inability to win the ‘Most Popular Song of the Year’ award and his outbursts after the event has been one of the highly discussed issues in Ghana this week.
One actress named Xandy Kamel even offered to give Patapaa a good time in bed for him to keep quiet.
But it looks like Patapaa is more interested in ‘bigger’ fishes like Delay than Xandy.
