As Hamamat continues to explore her ambassador tour in Senegal, she seems to have stumbled upon another act that has social media going crazy.
The African cultural fanatic seemed to have found herself in the Senegalese town names Foudiougne, where she had a chance of meeting a very old elder acknowledged as Queen Mother according to Hamamat.
Senegalese Elder Let’s One Off In Hamamat’s Afro
In a video published by Hamamat, she and others gathered around the Senegalese Elder as she swarmed through Hamamat’s hair. At which point the elder spat into Hamamat’s hair.
The act wasn’t committed with any malicious intent, however Hamamat failed to explain in her caption why she was spat on.
Hamamat captioned the video as below.
I met the Queen mother and oldest woman is the Sippo village – she was a young girl when the first white settlers came to Senegal 🇸🇳
She told us an amazing story of how she helped birth their children and then asked us to bow for blessings in a very interesting way .
It was never easy to fight for her people as a woman but she did and never gave up .
Senegal is a beautiful place with deep rich culture and it was such an honor to meet this woman who has been the Queen mother for generations.
Reason Remains Unclear
The video is not to clear if it was something other than saliva, nor did Hamamat explain the purpose of the act, but you can watch it below here.
Hamamat seems to have devoted a good amount of time on her social media going back and forth with those that don’t understand the cultural merits behind this, especially westerners, why she would allow someone to spit on her.
Hamamat’s trip to Senegal seems to be exciting her followers more than her time in her native country. It was only a week or so ago when she was spotted walking with lions. The video went so viral even American actress Viola Davis published it.
