Yoruba Proverb

Yorùbá: Baba jóná ẹ nbèrè irùgbọn, kiló fi se ihá?

English: Father burns and you are asking about the beard; what served as
the catalyst?

Usage: This proverb is used to explain a situation where one has a
big problem, and a sympathizer is asking about a minor problem.

Of course, the small problem is already consumed by the big
problem.
