wole soyinka nears 80

Nigeria has been alive with books and writers for many years. One of the giants of Nigerian and African and global literature is Wole Soyinka, who very soon turns 80.

The Nigerian Daily Independent pays attention to this forthcoming event and relates the love of Wole Soyinka for pirates. Yes, pirates!
