Seul Seul

Seul Seul We are at the house of Madame Diego to talk about "Seul Seul" Welcome to you. I'm very comfortable to talk about about this tradition. It's a practice reserved for young girls. So, for young girls who have grown up together, when one of them receives the visit from her suitor she advises her friends. They prepare all kinds of dishes and they assure him all his meals. When everything is ready for the marriage and for the girl to join her husband her friends demand a sum of money as a type of 'reimbursement'. That is the "seul seul". Who should give the money? The husband gives the money to his representatives who must give it to the new bride. For my marriage, I have given my representatives the seul seul money. It can be a waste of time. It's better to be well prepared,

to program everything, down to the vehicles, and do everything as you should, to honor the new bride. And there should be no mistakes, nothing that can slow the process. Representation by the YETAM Group There are conditions to comply with so that you can take the bride. What conditions? You should give 15,000 francs by way of 'seul seul' What else! One hasn't already given enough? The cola, a suitcase, 50,000 francs. What more? It's a tradition and it should continue. If she wants to live in a happy household, she gives the 15,000 francs like the others. What does this sum represent? It's the fixed amount for 'seul seul'. Every new wife should pay before joining her marriage house. For us, it's a tradition. The money will prepare a good dinner for December 31st. Let's not break her feet, she will remain with nothing. Give us our wife! It's getting late. Please! You are wasting your time. Only 15,000 francs? It's not negotiable. It's take it or leave it. Oh come on, listen to me. I can give you 10,000. No. Not possible. Don't even think about it. I'm just the spokesperson here. You, you can't extend me the peace pipe? If you don't want me, there is nothing I can do about it. It's you who says it. Leave me alone. You know that I don't love you. Eh! You and your pretty face. It's over. I'm not questioning you, I'm talking to her. Me, I am just the spokesperson. I'm just doing what they want me to. Please, accept the 10,000. If we are finished, I will go. I will give 10,000 and i will make up the difference with something else. I will not say what. It's a secret. If you agree, I will show you. What is it then? OK give the rhythm.... The die is cast, it's up to you to play! The die is cast, it's up to you to play! The die is cast, it's up to you to play! Do what you will, it's all for your honor. OK, so now what do you say? OK we are satisfied. You can take the bride. OK thank you. It is over, I will not chew any more cola! You have traded me for a present. You're all alone now. I won't fill your water jug, or sweep your room and you will be bored.
