Doggu is the appellation of Tugu-lana Yemusa. Yemusa is the son of Naa Andani Sigli, and he was born on the same day that Andani killed Kumpatia, king of the Gonjas. Yemusa was made the regent when his father died. In a town called Bagli, there was another person named Yemusa who was also made the regent at his father’s funeral. His drummers told him to use one of Tugu-lana Yemusa’s appellations for himself. When Tugu-lana Yemusa found out that another Yemusa was using his appellation, he became jealous and went to Bagli to challenge him. Tugu-lana injured the other Yemusa in an effort to make him stop using the appellations, but he refused, and eventually Tugu-lana killed him. The drum language for Doggu means “he killed him because of a name.” Today, Doggu is used as an appellation for all regents.
