All the Kingdoms in Africa is unique in some way, but somehow they are all connected. I was told that People from Dahomey kingdom are the same people in Bafoussam. They are all originally from Nigeria and migrated over there to start their own kingdom. The palaces might look different from the way of building the palaces were so similar. There’s always a main building, an open courtyard for people to gather and some other compounds. The Chefferie(or Palace) in Bafoussam is a place that you cannot miss:)
The roof of most buildings in Bafoussam are shaped like above! This kind of roof used to be unique to the chief’s house(and wives). However, people like it so much they copy this roof everywhere! When I passed by town, almost all the houses have this kind of roof which is really interested to me!
We went to the “Live museum” which the Chief’s Sister told us there’s spirit inside!
They still do ceremony in here and the chief’s sister told me she got 17 fiancée to choose to be her husband!
All the Kings was listed on the wall!
And if you want to the be the wife of the chief, you only need to get through the above door!
You can see the stamp painting of the above wall, it’s unique to the where the chief wife’s live.
I did find all the other paintings and cravings very interesting:)
And once the King Inaugurated, he needed to spend 9 weeks in the Jungle with 7 women to make them pregnant. The jungle is right pass this gate!
This is the African way:)
