“Chinua is entitled to better than being escorted to his grave with that monotonous, hypocritical aria of deprivation's lament, orchestrated by those who, as we say in my part of the world, 'dye their mourning weeds a deeper indigo than those of the bereaved'. He deserves his peace. Me too! And right now, not posthumously." - RIP to the great one.”

According to Reno Omokri"Between Chinua Achebe and Professor Wole Soyinka, I would give the Nobel Prize for literature to Achebe 100 times out of 100 times.
I still don't understand how Soyinka got it and Achebe did not.
I read their books. Achebe's works are by far the more superior works of literature.
I have often wondered if it was because of Achebe's strong moral and financial support for Biafra during the Civil War and defiance to Great Britain.
I can't just understand it.
By the way, my mother is from Ogun state.
The same state as Professor Soyinka.
If my opinions were influenced by tribe, I won't look at Achebe twice.
