Anụ Gbaa Ajọ Egbe (Igbo)

Anụ Gbaa Ajọ Egbe, is a contribution towards the promotion and preservation of folktales as a tradition in Igboland. Let the title which at the first, looks controversial not deter you, for where there’s Tortoise, there are limitless possibilities. Remember, it was he who chose to be addressed as “Unu dum” when he joined a flock of birds to a feast in heaven. You better see why he is the Nkpọnkpọ kpọkịrịkpọ, one of a kind no other animal is capable of begetting but she, Tortoise herself!

Do not be troubled about how this conflict would be resolved unless you are unaware that words are spoken with wit and skills. Have you considered the peaceful coexistence between the tongue and teeth in the mouth at the same time? None purposefully hurts the other – even teeth that is always searching for meat to eat. Ndị Igbo says that “The masquerade that dances at the village square does not dance for itself.” Mbe, the Tortoise – the protagonist – is in the plot and conspiracy with the rest of the members of the animal kingdom. Names are deliberately written in the capital that each may stand out and therefore, be outstanding!

In this fable, full-scale humor is guaranteed, logical thinking expected in quantum dose, and above all, the appreciation of animals as beings worthy of respect is provoked.
