- DescriptionIt is often said among the Yorubas of Nigeria that charity begins at home. Dr. Aina grew up in a village with his parents and grandparents. He was very close to his grandmother so it is surprise that his given name depicts her status in their community. Olaiya, which means the hor, the wealth or the riches of the mother, was a symbol of their closeness. His grandmother and his Dad used to tell stories every night, and especially on moonlit nights. The series of children's stories that he kws best today were mostly told by them. In other words, he grew up with these stories and he is pleased to be able to share one of them with you w, Ijapa, the Lion, and the Boar, the story of a turtle, a lion, and a boar and how they came to be enemies.

This was Ijapa's idea because he was fed up with all the village gossip about him.
