why should I marry a woman I don't know,just bc a stranger told me to?
A long time ago,there was a king named Maghan that ruled the kingdom of Mali
when I go,you will be king.You are destined for greatness,my boy!
One day a hunter came from far away to visit King Maghan,the hunter asked King Maghan to marry a woman called Sogolon
The hunter told him his son will become the greatest king ever to rule the kingdom.Even if Sogolon was ugly,the king married Sogolon and named him Sundiata
As Sundiata kept growing they realized that he couldn't use his legs.King Maghan became very sick,the king called Sundiata by his beside and told him "when I go,you will be king.You are destined for greatness,my boy!
After king Maghan died the king's frist wife,Sassouma had different plans and thought her son Dankaran should be king.She spread tales about Sundiata so that ppl wouldn't accept him.The gossip worked and Dakaran became king.Sundiata was then forced to flee with his mother
