241-African Folklore: Hippopotamaster

Myths and Legends

Oct 6 2021 • 40 mins

In a story from the folklore of the Sorko people who lived along the Niger river in West Africa, a hippo is causing all sorts of trouble. I mean, hippos are dangerous, but ones that can sprout ovens on their back and shoot fire streams like some kind of final-evolution Pokemon mean this village needs a hero.

The creature is Babamik! She's a deranged murderer who had it all...until her daughter started dating.
