Marriage Wrestling


I am Abasiakamauwemowo Patrick Mfonabasi. a mouthful uhn? My first name was given to me by my father Mr. Nsikak-abasi. It means ‘my life is in God’s guard’.

I hail from the south-eastern part of Akwa-ibom state. We are known as the Ibibio tribe.

I’m taking my friends Chinonso and Tomi to my village for a week to have a taste of my village.

We got to my family house at around 9am the day after we took off from UNILAG.

Around 6 am the next day, we heard a town crier crying “the annual marriage wrestling is today by noon, able bodied men should gather at the towns square to fight for the love of our kings daughter, Anwa-nwa”.

“guy, you should go and fight oh and prove the efficiency of all the bruce lee that you watch” Tomi said

“do you think I can’t? I will shock you people” I replied

“Abby my man, that’s why I like you. I hope the naked girls we saw at the stream yesterday morning will be there. I need to get my freak on” Chinonso said

“I pity your life, they will just castrate you?” Tomi said with a smirk on his face.


It was noon already and I fought close to seven guys including one guy with hammer like head and a marvelous body odour. I eventually won I was to claim my asampetempe, my Anwa-nwa. Drums were rolling and the next thing I saw was a midget. A FRIGGING DWARF. I could crush her without knowing. And to think that I fought Nkanta, Inemesit , Etok and others for a midget, with a midget face. We left the next day.

    Haha nice one. I needed a morning laugh. People say princess then you automatically assume she’s beautiful. Blame Bruce Lee for teaching him how to fight now he can never return to the village again lol
