ADRIAMBAHOMANANAAlso known as ANDRIAMBAHOMANANI
The First Human — and also the God of Bananas
ADRIAMBAHOMANANA (male) and ANDRIAMAHILALA (female) were the first humans. Perpetrated by Sky, their mission was to populate the Earth — and seemingly half the alphabet. This they did with much enthusiasm.After some centuries, Sky thought they had gone on quite long enough and asked them to choose retirement plans. Impressed with its ability to grow new shoots, ADRIAMBAHOMANANA decided to become a banana plant. Which was certainly a bold move.
His wife ANDRIAMAHILALA, on the other hand, opted to become the Moon. Sky breathed a sigh of relief.
