Pix Stories from the Motherland: “Onwero kwa o”

“How much have I sold today? Onwero kwa o


“But it doesn’t matter. I’m just happy I have this spot in the market. It’s a good spot. It’s true today is slow. But some days are fast. God is good.”

Lexicon Analysis: “Onwero kwa o” translates to “Nothing really”.  It is translated from Igbo- a major Sub Saharan African language spoken by over 24m people.

Background info:

Legendary writer Chimamanda Adichie once said, “…the problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue; but that they are incomplete. They make one story become the only story”. 

NoCoolStory is in existence for the purpose of creatively correcting the many unfair and incomplete African stereotypes through the lips of Africans.
