Saa-Ba Mini-Yang Baa The Mighty Python: Only a perfect man can be my husband
The Mighty Python [Saaba MiniYang Ba] is the title of one of the best known Mandinka Folktale [story]. The story is about a young beautiful princess. The princess was beautiful, highly intelligent, well educated, well-mannered and well-behaved. The young princess not only was truly beautiful, highly intelligent, well educated, as well as well mannered and well behaved, but also highly sophisticated and truly popular throughout the subregions of the black African continent. But the princess was not yet married. All her age-mates were already married and with own family. The parents of the princess were getting worried because they too want their beloved daughter to get married. But the princess had rather an unusual precondition for a husband, for she said that she marry only a perfect man. Thus looking for, and awaiting a perfect man for a husband was the only hard reason why the princess was almost becoming the only spinster in the entire subregions of the continent called black Africa. The story of that princess, not only awaiting but also struggling hard and even harder looking for a perfect man [called Ke-kemperin-ngo in Mandinka] for husband is the core object of this folktale [story].
