okediran endows literary prize

Nigeria has done it again. Or shoudl I say a Nigerian has done it. The man Wale Okediran has given money for a new literary prize. The prize will be in honour of another writer, the late Abubakar Gimba, who passed away recently. 

The prize money will be Naira 200,00. So, no prize in pounds or dollars, but good old Naira. You have to write a very good short story to get this tall amount of money.

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