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!
Ilawouri wo, Ilawouri, fanga iléléla
Daba toly itama
Ilawouri ilélé fangame lé
Ilawouri, ibé tchèî Igbassi
