Proverb Monday, #49

Proverb: Wonnim asa a, na wose atwene nyε dε.
Meaning: If you don't know how to dance, you would say the drums (beats) aren't interesting.
Context: Sour grapes
No. 4383 in Bu me Bε by Peggy Appiah et al.


  1. I love this proverb. Our elders were literate in more ways than we are willing to admit!

  2. We hardly give them credit, but theirs is wisdom obtained from keen observation.
