Good evening my people, happy new year once again , today's story will come rather earlier than usual😊.

I am telling a story about a man who narrowly escaped a taboo and later in life rose to be a name that rings bell

STORY TITLE : ALAJO SOMOLU (Alphaeus Taiwo OLUNAIKE)
Many don't know him by his name, he is widely known as baba alajo Somolu.

He was born at a very dangerous time; a perilous period in history. It was on the 16th of September 1915 in the city of Isan-Oyin (now called Isonyin); close to Ijebu-Musin and Ijebu-Ode in Ogun State
southwestern Nigeria. Within the thick groves of thick forests and the brilliant foliage of green tropical plants, the cries of newly-born babies pierced the calm and peace of the forest.

STORY TITLE : TORTOISE AND THE BIRDS

After series of consultation with the street lords, the story telling can now begin, fall your friends and family

#thestory_teller
Once upon a time, all the birds were invited to a feast in the sky. They were very happy and began to prepare themselves for the great day. They painted their bodies with red cam wood and drew beautiful patterns on them with uli.

#thestory_teller
Tortoise saw all preparations & soon discovered what it all meant. Nothing that happened in the world of the animals ever escaped his notice; he was full of cunning.
As soon as he heard of the great feast in the sky his throat began to itch at the very thought.
