Wodaabe's wife stealing marriage dance
As with any other traditional tribe or ethnic group, this particular group of people also has their special festival which they celebrate to mark beauty, love and affection. In this tribe, the ladies are in charge of anything s.ex related.
During the festival which lasts for 10 days, tribesmen from various clans are allowed to steal women from their husband irrespective of their clan. You are only regarded as a winner if the husband does not see you and you are able to steal his wife. After the process, both the man and woman are allowed to spend the whole night together. However, the condition here is that there must be some sort of mutual understanding between the two before proceeding to other things.
The name of the festival is called 'Yikes'. Before the ceremony, tribesmen put on solid makeup to look their outermost best and it is no surprise they claim to be the most beautiful humans on earth.
