about

IN THE OLDEN DAYS, all the stories that people told were stories of Nyankupong and all stories belonged to Nyankupong, the Supreme God. Kweku Ananse, however, wanted to own all stories, so that stories could be told about him.

After all, he often told himself, he was the most clever person alive. His legendary exploits deserved to be told and retold.

So, one day, he went to Nyankupong and asked to buy the stories.

Nyankupong said,

“My price is only four things. ... For these things, I will give you my stories.”

.........................................

Nyankupong's price for his stories was unusual and quite high. Ananse managed to pay it though. How did he do it?
