Having been supported greatly on this amazing platform and still in the spirit of building and strengthen communities, I am starting my first ever fun game theme: African Proverbs Interpretation Exercise/challenge. This is to support and encourage (new) steemians who may be in need of some love (Upvotes).

From Denmark to the United Kingdom, from United States to Russia there exist brilliant proverbs originating from different continents. It would of great pleasure to witness how African proverbs are interpreted in other continents and vice versa!

African proverbs are the pride of African culture and are wise saying from people believed to be gifted with wisdom (the elderly) who pride themselves in the knowledge of these proverbs which are strongly tied to earth and animals conveying experiences of life in very subtle manner.

Review Today’s African Proverb entry (In the green box below) and interpret it based on your level of comprehension, either by writing a statement, sentence, short story or a similar non African proverb in the comment section of this post.

Your efforts will be rewarded with a humble upvote from me and other steemians who may take a liking to your response/interpretation.
