On a certain occasion, a stranger arrived in the kingdom who little by little gained the confidence of the young woman until he gained her love, a reality that caused great annoyance to the chao who wanted her for himself.
Then the cao in revenge for what happened took all the garments and the gold that was within his reach and hid them, later denouncing the theft of them.
Obatalá did not suspect the bird because in it he had placed all his trust for years pointing out all the accusations to the stranger who was claiming his daughter, taking him prisoner.

After settling accounts with the cao, Obatalá was forced to release his daughter's suitor and publicly offer him an apology for the mistake made against him.
Weeks after this happened, the union of Obatala's daughter and her lover was celebrated in the kingdom.
