In Senegal you will hear about bine-bine, in Mali and Guinea, we prefer the term baya. The Congolese will talk about Ziguida while in Niger it is about Tsakia. The appellations are as mysterious as the object itself. How else can one explain that simple pearls tied around the kidneys can have such an effect?
