When we were all growing up, our various African parents has led us to believe a lot of myths for different reasons at one point or the other. As we grew, we’ve come to realize the stupidity in believe those myths.
I mean I myself, I can’t still understand why I chose to stupidly believe some of the things my parents told me while I was young.
1. If you see someone sleeping with both legs on the wall. That person is a witch.
2. If you whistle in the night, you’re calling snakes to come and meet you. (Then I used to wonder, where will the snakes come from, there was no single bush around where we were living then).
3. It’s not good to look at mirror in the night.
I still can’t understand why I chose to stupidly believe some of these things.

Lol, I remember that one. If someone is sleeping with their legs on the wall the person is a witch.
I wonder where they got all those dumb beliefs from.
They even told me this one, if you are pounding on an empty mortar, your P-nis would start getting shorter.
