African Folktale Marriage of Tau and Oni.

Ayo had a most beautiful daughter named Oni. She was visited by many wealthy men asking for her hand in marriage. 

However, her father would insist he empties the river with a peanut shell before he would agree to marriage for his only daughter.  

The men always walked away in disappointment, for the task was impossible; they thought Ayo to be a fool until, at last, one suitor Tau, actually tried to empty the river with a peanut shell!  

Tyo won the beautiful Oni's hand in marriage, for the father said: "Kdm ago tsuru baditsia tsido, He who is truly in love agrees to the impossible.”
