Trivia

  • Nyikang's name and character is derived from the divine kingship of the Shilluk People of South Sudan. Nyikang is believed to be the representative of 'the divine kingship'. As each new King ascends to the throne, he must be possessed by Nyikang in ritual conflict. Once possessed, the spirit of Nyikang is thought to rule over the territory of Shillukland as both King and God.[2]
