ENGLISH TRANSLATION

In Yoruba Culture stories are told to learn from example or to warn.  Be careful on stepping into the New Year with fear, because fear reduces one’s potential.  Some of the lessons that can be learnt from the Folklore being read in the video showed that everyone created by God is endowed with talents and each have their own unique position on planet earth.  The story depicted the importance of team spirit, lessons learnt on how wild animals live amicably, listening to cautionary saying of the elders, learning from other people’s experience and the consequence of fear and cowardice because it reduces potential as seen in the story of how a Tiger Cub was reduced to a domesticated Cat.
