Greetings Village! This is #DailyAfricanProverbs, where we explore the wisdom of African cultures. Today, we’re in Nigeria, where we learn the proverb “The river may dry up but she keeps her name.” This proverb reminds us that even though things may change or disappear, our identity and legacy can still live on.
In the case of a river, even if it dries up, its name will still be remembered. This is because the river has left its mark on the land, and its story has been passed down through generations. In the same way, our lives may change and come to an end, but our legacy can live on through our words, our actions, and the people we touch.
Join me on the #AFIAPodcast at 6am PST/4pm EAT on YouTube @okelojavan to discuss this proverb in more detail. Share your thoughts in the comments below!
