Not so long ago, we were ignorant kids spreading fictitious and childish stories happening at our various schools. There were so many of such stories but there was this particular one that scared the hell out of every kid not leaving out the hardest ones.
One thing that surprised me most is the fact that, the story was the same everywhere and I recently learnt that the same story and reactions were generated in Nigeria at the same time.
“Madam High Heel” aka “Lady High Heel” aka “Madam Kokoi” aka “Madam Moke” has haunted every single Ghanaian and Nigerian at some point in time in their childhood. We’ve all seen or heard her lurking around somewhere; either in the bathroom, in the empty classroom or just right outside our windows staring in at us and Waiting for her chance.
Her story goes back to the 90’s, and this is the narration I heard. She was a regular school teacher who was always cruel to her students. However in her defense, she always seemed to be paired with the most troublesome students. One day the students decided to play a prank on her. They thought it’d be funny to lock her away, so they dragged her across a classroom, found the smallest cupboard at the back of the classroom, pushed her in, and locked her up. She screamed for a very long time but nobody came to her rescue since school was closed and both students and teachers have left for their various homes. She tried to get out but was not successful.
Unknown to anyone, she was also pregnant for a few months. She envisioned her child not being able to grow up and go to school like regular kids, not have a regular life and have kids of their own. She was trapped and she was slowly dying. Then she noticed she had only one red high heel on, but she always had on a red pair of high heel because those were her favorite, but the other shoe was nowhere to be found. It must have been left behind while she was being dragged to the cupboard. With her last breath, she swore every single student would feel exactly what is was like to be trapped in a cupboard , screaming and clawing away for their dear life and also look for the other missing red heel.
And so she comes back every now and then, with only one red high heel on her foot. They say you hear the click-clack of the high heel before you see her, and the only way to keep her at bay is to shut your eyes quickly and keep them shut until you hear the click-clack fade away...or else you will be the next to end up in the cupboard...locked away...clawing away at the locked door...forgotten forever.
This is the version I heard, feel free to drop your versions for laughs and for old time sake.
Madam High Heel Mbaa eee
