Award winning author, Chimamanda Ngozi-Adichie has showered praises on Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka after the two met one another.
Adichie shared a picture of both of them as she expressed her admiration for the Veteran poet. She shared the photo on her instagram page with the caption of gratitude.
She expressed her admiration for his openness and unapologetic nature for speaking his mind.
You are, for me, a guiding light:
Your courage. The ease with which you inhabit your skin, speaking your mind, unburdened by apology.
Your kindness and humour.
Your utter coolness.
The urgent, terse poetry of The Man Died, the exuberance of Ake; your faith in possibility, in adventure, in progress.
Yes indeed, ‘the mindless ones are neither the total sum nor the true face of humanity.’
Thank you, Prof.
