“I got three wives this way.” – Fulani Man


Sharo is a practice where young Fulani men compete for wives. It involves men being flogged to test their endurance. Fulani girls and young women, including would-be-brides attend.

But in recent years, this practice has declined in popularity. Some say it’s too dangerous. Others say it is not allowed in Islam. But many Fulanis want to keep this eye-watering practice alive.
