African Bedtime Stories

 Repository Of African Folk Stories

In a small town in South-eastern Nigeria, a hard-working mom made a fire between three mud stands stuffed with firewood. A huge clay pot containing yam tubers boiled on top of the fire, while she blended a mixture of local spices, pepper, salt, and red palm oil. Her four children sat in a circle on an old raffia mat, legs folded. Dinner was served; boiled yam with red palm oil. The children ate from the same bowl. Hardly full, they made up with gulps of water fetched from a nearby stream. Their father, who ate from the same bowl with his wife, stretched himself on a long isle chair, as he relaxed over a fresh cup of palm wine and enjoyed the cool, gentle night breeze. 

A shiny full moon soon appeared in the sky surrounded by myriads of heavenly stars. Without the moon you could almost touch the tick darkness that enveloped the compound. Frogs, crickets and owls blended their usual musical rhythm of ‘whip-frog-or-whip owl’. The Children sang along with their mother, as she told moonlight tales; the African bedtime stories. 

Africa is blessed with rich culture that is transmitted from one generation to another through folk tales and songs. Unfortunately, that beautiful culture is gradually getting consumed by modern civilization. 

Grab a copy of ‘African Bedtime Stories’ and bring the fun back to the African family the way it used to be. Teach your children morals, when they grow up, they won’t let you down. 

That is what this publication is about.
