Obara &the Merchants

by Koolkidz Television & Publishing, LLC

Obara and the Merchants tells the story of a powerful hunter named Obara who lives in a town experiencing a famine. When he is finally able to eat, a group of hungry merchants appears! Will Obara share, or keep his food to himself? What would you do? Based on a traditional story from the Yoruba people of Nigeria, it is one of a set of stories told to help people develop their iwa, or character, and to give guidance in times of uncertainty. Obara and the Merchants serves both purposes wonderfully, giving today’s generation a reminder from yesterday of the enduring qualities that matter. The rich baritone voice of actor/comedian from Last Comic Standing, Alonzo Bodden narrates the story, and adds a whole new dimension to Obara the hunter.
