Arugungu is am important Nigerian cultural event, to which thousands of fishermen take part.
The Matan Fada may not be very impressive but it’s full of fish, because people come here to fish only once a year. After the one our time limit is over, the team who caught the largest fish is escorted by the sultans’s guards to present their prize to him. The winners receive a brand new bus as a prize as well as one million Naira (around $7500).

Cool, I'll have to go sometime. As it turns out, I'm the only known heir to the late king of Nigeria. After I cash this six million dollar check and send them ten grand, that river is gonna be mine.
