Birago Diop est d’origine wolof, ces contes sont plutôt communs à toutes les ethnies en Afrique Occidentale (même ailleurs dans toute l’Afrique… presque), les seules choses qui ont été » wolofisées » sont principalement les noms donnés aux animaux, sinon l’esprit global des contes n’a guère changé.
Ce conte » Les mauvaises compagnies » en quatre parties, est extrait du livre de Birago DIOP les Contes d’Amadou Koumba, aux Editions Présence Africaine.
