In front of the Skull Cave, the Phantom and Diana are married by President Lamanda Luaga of Bangalla and President Goranda of Ivory-Lana.

Miss Tagama catch the wedding bouquet as the Phantom and Diana rides off to Keela-Wee, president Luaga wishes her well.

At Keela-Wee, the Phantom and Diana follow the tradition and takes a bath before rolling themselves in the sand and becoming like gold. They end up traditionally in the Jade Hut where Diana declares that she loves her husband's ancestors, his places and him.
