birthday sympathies for wole soyinka

Here is another article on the 80th birthday of Nigerian writer Wole Soyinka. This time written by the Nigerian Togun Ogunlesi. He focuses on the social involvement of Soyinka, but he does not leave out Chinua Achebe. Writers have voiced their opinion of the state of Nigeria and hopefully they will continue to do so. 

There is no end in writing books, but it seems that there is no end either in writing about this man Wole.

I enjoy reading about Africa. New books. Old books. By African writers. By non-African writers. Novel. History. Travel. Biographies. Autobiographies. Politics. Colonialism. Poetry.
