Oscar-winner Whoopi Goldberg humorously retells this bright African folktale about the proud son of a chief who sets out to find his rightful place in the world. Grammy and Oscar-winning composer Herbie Hancock provides the inimitable score.

"Koi and the Kola Nuts" is a story about a chief's son named Koi who goes out and searches for a village that respects him following unfortunate events after his father's death. Along the way, Koi encounters a snake, some ants and an alligator. Koi saves their lives by giving them some of his kola nuts, which are his sole inheritance. As Koi arrives at a village, the village people don't believe he is a son of the chief, therefore, they give him some impossible tasks that he may not perform. The major conflict of the story becomes: can Koi pass all of these tests and prove to the village he is the son of the chief?

This story is a valuable tale friendship (helping others) and determination. When Koi is in grave danger of being eaten by the villagers, the animals that helped along his journey, come back to help him with the impossible tasks.

IF YOU HAVE THE CHANCE to hear Whoopi Goldberg tell this story in the RABBIT EARS production...by all means take advantage of the opportunity. She is MARVELOUS!

Along the way, Koi encounters a snake, some ants and an alligator, who he saves their lives by giving them some of his kola nuts. As Koi arrives at the village, the villages don't believe he is a son of the chief, therefore, they give him some impossible tasks that he may not fullfill. Can Koi pass all of these tests and prove to the village he is the son of the chief?

This story teaches a valuable moral about friendship and determination. When Koi is in grave danger of being eaten by the villagers, the animals that helped along his journey, came and helped him with the impossible tasks. I love this story because the images are extremely breathtaking and I love the way Whoopi Goldberg puts this story together. I especially love the scene where the villagers are saying to Koi,

"He's no son of a chief,

He's merely a thief,

He's nothing more than an azu with a curse,

Let's a great big feast,

Or a little one at least."

I just loved that song!!! This video is enjoyable for everyone who loves an African story done by Whoopi Goldberg!!!
