African culture encourages helping one another and sharing individual’s problems, however, where do we draw the line between encroaching on the individual’s privacy and fulfilling social expectations? Piccolo is summoned by his Kata Kata Village to discuss his bachelorhood, the question is: Have the villagers crossed the border? Watch “Piccolo Answers the Call of His Village” (part 4) and share your views:
After walking out of the meeting with the Kata Kata Villagers, Piccolo’s girlfriend has convinced him to go back and listen to what his villagers want to discuss with him. While the villagers use proverbs to explain to Piccolo why they have invited him back home, Piccolo just wants them to go straight to the point. But in African culture, if one uses a proverb and explains it to the listener as well, the proverb loses its taste. Regardless, Kata Kata villagers have one simple question for Piccolo: Is the barber not good at his work or is the razor not sharp enough”? How would Piccolo react to this question?
Getting tired of Piccolo’s bachelorhood, the elders of his Kata Kata Village have decided to send him an urgent message, requesting him to come back home. The question is: Will Piccolo honour the invitation, having in mind his attitude towards the villagers?
