“Some Western scholars have erroneously associated writing with civilization and literature, ignoring the fact that African oral literature, by the multiplicity of its themes and forms, answers all the demands and attributes of written literature and beyond.” From “‘Once in Abaganaland’: A Folk Story” by Michael C. Mbabuike
