“I came here for love. My Dutch wife, Turid, was in Senegal to dance. I am a Griot; a musician born and raised in a musical family. When I saw Turid for the first time I was immediately blown away. She spoke our language and I immediately felt that she understood the Senegalese code. It was only later that we began to have feelings for each other. It was a Friday evening and I was taking her to her home, and that was the first time we kissed. When she went back to the Netherlands we kept in contact and I realised that I had been bitten by the love bug.
