Since I was fifteen I have always told anyone who cared to listen that professor Wole Soyinka was and still is the ONLY Nigerian public figure I would go out of my way to meet.(working on it) so, you can imagine how I felt not remembering yesterday was his birthday.
I don't think he is going to see this, unless I show him when I eventually meet him. Lol
Happy belated birthday sir, you stole my literary heart when I was only 11 and met Sidi, Lakunle and Baroka in The Lion and The Jewel.
