Oral traditions characterise the way Africans do their business. For generations since time immemorial, information and knowledge traversed swamps, forests, valleys, mountains name it, to reach destinations where it was most desired and valued.
Quite rudimentary, but the Africans have stuck to their guns. Songs, riddles, poems, stories, customs, proverbs and sayings as we know them have stood the test of time. Our children recite the same poems as we did and sing the same songs as we sang, although the difference could be in tone, time and language.
