Folklore and Origin Stories

Let’s tell our stories here on iD. Tribes, Sub-tribes, Villages, Families, Homesteads, Heroes, Villains, Tribal Wars, Colonialists etc. We have many stories to tell. One of the most pleasing experiences to me is when, each time I visit my uncle, Uloko Aako, in Otobi-Otukpo, I sit for hours listening to origin stories of the Otukpo people. Story telling is an art and my uncle, Uloko, seems to be a strong exponent of that art. His vivid descriptions bring his stories to life. The sounds and songs that accompany his stories transport me into the moment and, before I’d know it, I’d realise that I’d been listening for hours.

I’d be featuring these stories soon and I invite you to tell yours. Call or WhatsApp 07034954511. Email
