7 Facts You Don’t Know About Professor Wole Soyinka

Today, the African literary giant and Nobel laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka adds another year to his awesome reign on earth. Below are seven beautiful facts we discovered about him, which you might not be aware of.
– He has been married three times and divorced twice
His first marriage was in 1958 to the late British writer, Barbara Dixon, whom he met at the University of Leeds in the 1950s. Barbara was the mother of his first son, Olaokun.
His second marriage was in 1963 to Nigerian librarian Olaide Idowu with whom he had three daughters: Moremi, Iyetade (deceased), Peyibomi and a second son, Ilemakin.

– He lost the Oxford Professor of Poetry
Soyinka lost the race to be Oxford’s Professor of poetry to English poet, playwright and novelist, Simon Armitage after he was betrayed by Melvyn Bragg. What the Nobel Laureate missed out on is the second most prestigious poetry position in the UK.
– He fled Nigeria on a motorcycle hounded by Abacha
During the military reign of General Sani Abacha, Wole Soyinka who spoke out against the junta had to flee via the ‘NADECO’ route. Wole Soyinka fled on a motorcycle to preserve his life. General Abacha pronounced a death sentence on him “in absentia”. With civilian rule restored to Nigeria in 1999, Soyinka returned to the nation.
The National Democratic Coalition (NADECO) was formed on May 15, 1994 by a broad coalition of Nigerian democrats, who called on the military government of Sani Abacha to step down in favour of the winner of the June 12, 1993 election, M. K. O. Abiola. The members mostly came from the southwest of the country. They quickly became the symbol of mass resistance against military rule.
– He wrote poems on tissue paper while in prison
While behind bars despite being denied access to pens and paper, he improvised. Soyinka wrote poetry on tissue paper, which was published in a collection titled Poems from Prison. His experiences in prison are recounted in his 1972 book The Man Died: Prison Notes of Wole Soyinka.
– He was a Professor at Obafemi Awolowo University
From 1975 to 1999, he was a Professor of Comparative Literature at the Obafemi Awolowo University then called the University of Ife. With civilian rule restored to Nigeria in 1999, he was made Professor emeritus. Soyinka has been a Professor of Creative Writing at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
– He has been named Commander of the Federal Republic of Nigeria
This is a Nigerian honor first established in 1964 people who served and benefited Nigeria. Soyinka was awarded in 1986, the same year he won the Nobel Prize for Literature. The medal was awarded in 1986 by General Ibrahim Babangida, a former military ruler.
On Sunday, July 24, 1994, he threw away his ‘national merit’ medal in Tafawa Balewa Square. He got angry that police halted the march he led for the restoration of democracy, end to military rule and release of Chief MKO Abiola.
– He is not religious although his father was an Anglican minister
His father, Samuel Ayodele Soyinka (whom he called S.A. or “Essay”) was an Anglican minister and headmaster of St. Peters School in Abẹokuta. His mother, Grace Eniola Soyinka, owned a market shop, was active in the women’s movement in her community and also was a practicing Anglican. Soyinka, on the other hand, is an atheist.

He went on portray Naira Marley's fans as 'Jackasses of the Year' for supporting a tune that energizes 'masturbation'. His post got a reaction from Naira Marley's partner and partner, Zlatan.

See their trade underneath… .

Nigerians are poor and lost, frantically searching for an option that is greater than themselves to associate with. That is the reason Naira Marley had support with Yahoo; lost, baffled spirits searching for having a place from anything higher than their status. Hurray? Forget about it. .

Presently we have another stain on us with Ijo Soapy. Whoever planned that record, recognized what they were doing. They realize the base they are focusing on. It isn't for you reasonable individual with shock. It is for those equivalent individuals who bolstered him during his self-incurred travails. .

Marlians are an inept pack. A band of dolts in the possibility of absurdity. There is no limit, no fore or bit of hindsight. Simply lost sheep without a pinch of sense or dignity. Marlians represent iranu. They represent junk. Also, they stan for standardization of junk. .

Same way Yahoo was attempting to go standard, Marley is currently pushing for standardization of open masturbation. Developed men making dick proceeds onward move floors isn't advancement. It's degeneration. Jerk off in your homes. "Cleanser" isn't popular culture grub. .

Marlians: Donkey of the Year.
