Quote
"There was a young girl named Imola who was preparing to marry her beloved boyfriend. According to custom, before a girl could be married, a pot of walnuts would be cooked overnight and shared with the relatives of the would-be groom. If the walnuts were bad, unhappiness would plague the marriage. The jealous second wife of Imola’s father burned the walnuts in secret overnight; when Imola discovered this, she climbed up toward the heavens in search of good walnuts and became the moon. Her suitor then followed her up into the sky and became the North Star."

Boshongo Bantu Creation Myth 
In the beginning, Bumba was all alone in the water. He got sick and vomited up the sun, moon, stars, and land. He vomited up nine animals: a leopard, an eagle, a crocodile, a fish, a tortoise, lightning, a white heron, a scarab and a goat.  The last thing that he vomited was mankind. The animals and Bumba’s three sons then created plants and the rest of the animals.
