mrumanu_elijah: The founder of Cultism in Nigeria 🤦‍♂️. He created what he couldn’t control. More than 10,000 youth have lost their life because of this man.

ojayyy__’: Also referred to as Captain Blood in the Pyrates Confraternity, dropped out of a doctoral program, won a Nobel Prize in literature, so many fracas of mixed personalities. You can like or hate him, you won’t be wrong. Everyone of us, revered this man, his name, whether you did arts in school or not, the popular current affairs figure. He is indeed notable. But at the back of the page of this voluminous piece of character lies jealousy. If Soyinka hates you, he’d hate you with every piece of grey hair on him, same atones for his love. He has played his part in the social sphere of politics, academics and even the multicultural world of his tribe. I don’t know what you make of him. But l’d rather be or not be a Soyinka.
