Ahọn Dudu's Story (1): Dnayal

...into words with Sola

May 5 2021 • 9 mins

Ahọn Dudu is faced with the challenge of passing on a message that could cost him his life. He is forced to make a decision and navigate his way through disbelief and doubt from his own people- the people of Oke.


This audio is part of my Master of Design thesis project which uses Yorùbá storytelling to speak about my experience with lack of black communal culture here in Vancouver, Canada.

In the story, Ahọn Dudu the main character (who is me) goes round warning everyone in the land he resides in about smoke that is coming up the mountain to destroy it.
