Yes, there’s a saying that it takes a long time to grow young.
Today 13 July 2017, I have decided to select a few birthday quote and wishes by some of the finest writers of our time to celebrate the 83rd birthday of one of the finest sons of the African continent Prof. Wole Soyinka.
The man the gave us the quote saying: “The man dies in all who keep silent in the face of tyranny” is a year older today, and from my besk I say live long and prosper and laud this Nobel Laureate.
Born on the 13th day of July 1934 in Ake, Yorubaland. Akinwande Oluwole “Wole” Babatunde Soyinka is a year older today.
