What really happened on the plane – Wole Soyinka reveals

ADVERTISEMENT

Nobel laureate Professor Wole Soyinka has finally revealed what happened on the airplane when he was asked to vacate a seat by a young man.

Soyinka who reacted to the controversy sparked by the photos shared by Tonye Cole said that he did not speak a word to the young man except inviting him to take his seat.

He said he decided to speak out because someone claiming to be the young man had said that he had a long conversation with the professor and even exchanged contacts.

Soyinka said these claims were not true.

The letter Mo Abudu shared, in which Wole Soyinka revealed what happened on the airplane with the young man, reads;

Good morning beautiful people.
Its 6.30 am here in Los Angeles.
Quite a bit has been said about me making certain comments about the young man that refused to give up his seat for Professor Wole Soyinka.
I will not comment further on this, however as you all know I LOVE and RESPECT Professor Wole Soyinka dearly.  Based on this incident, I did receive an email from Professor Wole Soyinka this morning and with his permission, its below:

Hallo Mo,
Someone sent me Patrick Tonye’s comment on the plane incident, and I saw your brief comment. It was a very minor thing and I’d forgotten all about it. However, after reading the boy’s response, I became curious. First, I never exchanged a word with him throughout beyond inviting him to take his allotted seat. Never spoke a word to him after that. Certainly never exchanged contact. So of course, I wonder if it’s the very individual  who’s posted this or a total fake. The phenomenon of stolen identities takes very strange dimensions and has become a source of worry. I wonder if this is one such. Any way of your finding out. I don’t operate in the social media as you probably recall.
