There was drama at the Angola Hall of Residence in the late hours of Wednesday when a resident swore he could make thirty wraps of fufu disappear down the canals of his throat.
Not the type to shy away from holding a fellow resident at his words, it didn't take long before Angolans made available the required numbers of fufu and a bowl of soup. The challenge thus commenced amidst cheers from a baffled crowd.
After an intense fifteen minutes of swallowing, the young Angolan started showing signs of slowing down on the tenth wrap. His hand to mouth transits slowed to a crawl and he began begging the crowd to reduce the number of fufus from thirty to twenty to which the throng blatantly refused.
Upon a tumultuous struggle to swallow morsels from the eleventh wrap of fufu, the Angolan gave up and called it a day, to the disappointment of the large number of onlookers.
Gradually the crowd dissipated and students retreated to their individual rooms.
