wole swoleNobel Laureate Prof  Wole Soyinka Is  81 Years Old  Today! Join us in wishing Nigerian playwright and political activist an amazing  birthday!!!! We wish Prof  Wole Soyinka God’s blessings, Success, Happiness and Good Health…

Wole Soyinka wrote his first important play, A Dance of the Forests, in the late 1950s. It satirizes the fledgling nation by showing that the present is no more a golden age than was the past. The Nobel-winning writer sometimes writes of modern West Africa in a satirical style, but his serious intent and his belief in the evils inherent in the exercise of power are usually present in his work….

Soyinka has written over 100 books and has also taught at numerous universities around the world!
