In collective cultures, we celebrate the hero among all the men in the village, the one who works the fastest and the best. He is the hero of the day. At home, in the evening, the reward for the hero is the head of the ram that has been killed for the community. The head is handed over to him, and that’s when this song is sung.

The song says:

Rise up, you’re stronger,

Rise up, you are master of the daba

Rise up, you have dominated men!


Konianké version:

Ilawouri wo, Ilawouri, fanga iléléla

Daba toly itama

Ilawouri ilélé fangame lé

Ilawouri, ibé tchèî Igbassi
