Yusuf lives in a small village in Africa. He was invited to the city by his friends so he decided to ask his parents about it- doubt and all in mind. His parents could not afford it so he got upset and left. He was being greedy, and his greed has made him and his loved ones suffer.

Once upon a time, there was a boy named Yusuf.

Yusuf was born in a small village in Africa.

Unlike majority of his friends, he was poor.

Yusuf was invited to go to the city with his friends.

He knew he couldn´t but he decided to give it a try and ask his parents.

Yusuf´s parents could not afford the fee that came with going to the city,

so he ran out of their little hut and decided on taking a stroll to cool off.

On his way home,

Yusuf found a 500 naira bill and came up with a strategy.

He stepped on it and waited till most of the people in the street had cleared out.

When he thought it was safe, he picked it up and- POOF! -he turned to yam.

Yusuf´s parents and friends searched for him but never heard from him again.

The people of the village thought his disappearance involved witchery, but his parents refused ti believe that.

What they failed to realize was that his greediness led to his downfall.
