Social Media Reacts To Man Who Refused To Burn In Fire At A Fire Festival In The Northern Region

The Bugum Chugu (Fire Festival) is the first Dagomba festival in the year. It is celebrated in the first month of the Dagomba lunar year, the Bugum Goli (the month of fire), and is celebrated on the ninth day of the month.

We had a story in the Bible about Shadrach, Mershack, and Abednego, three men of God who refused to bow to a deity, and as a result were thrown into but didn't burn --- a similar real-life video of a man dancing, sitting, and sleeping in a wildfire without burning has garnered a lot of attention on social media. The man displayed his supernatural powers and abilities at the popular fire festival in the Northern Region.

Many social media commentators applauded the man for exhibiting such great abilities and showing the black man that there's power in our culture but as a result of the invasion of foreign cultures, we have allowed ourselves to be manipulated to believe that everything of the black man is inferior, not good enough or demonic. 

Whereas another group of social media users was simply perplexed by the display of raw magic. There couldn't simply fathom how the man wasn't burning in the wildfire and joke about how they needed the same ability to conquer hellfire if it truly exists.

The video was shared by abdulazizabdul03 on Tik Tok.
