    Its better how you came clean to refute that sir, cause already i in particular is beginning to lose my regard for you, especially, with your write up in 2007 ” Titled the sins of Buhari” which i still used as a yardstick not to vote for Buhari in the last general election.

    • israel amulum

      You have just earned my respect back sir

    • PolyGon2013

      He already did. Can you imagine the mighty Soyinka ever saying things like that? Once you get into the public domain and you are very popular, it makes sense to watch your words. Soyinka is a man of integrity and he will never condescend to that level.

  • Caesar Onejeme

    I told them it was not possible………..not my Noble Laureate…………..and am glad to be vindicated.

  • Wise Head

    Post the “unedited” video online. Do quick, tell us the man who is using your name to fight his own battles as you are alleging. The rebuttal is not enough. It leaves much to be desired.

    • Old No7

      … and u call urself Wise Head?

    • Warwick Onyeama

      Please do not embarrass yourself any further. It is clear that you are one of the vituperative howlers who only believe what they want to believe.

  • Segun

    Come on people, Professor Wole Soyinka was jailed during our unfortunate civil war for siding with BIAFRA.
    That anybody would even suggest this is almost not worth responding to.

    • PolyGon2013

      Don’t mind them. I have met many of these igbos in the USA, and they are now denying that Soyinka sided with them during the Biafra war!

  • Warwick Onyeama

    I for one am very pleased to read this statement as I couldn’t really see Soyinka making that series of crass remarks about the Igbo. It was simply not his style. I am doubly pleased that his denial instantly undercuts the gathering mob and its vituperative howling.

  • PolyGon2013

    Why would Soyinka even ever make such a remark? These people (igbos) just can’t get over Professor Soyinka’s winning the Nobel Prize. It is time that the people making all these statements to denigrate our revered Soyinka should just butt out!

    • Ekene Promise Ahaoma

      Polygon2013 or what do you call yourself, you have a short memory.and you talk as if you dont know the Igbos have produced an erudite and a colosus in the person of Prof Chinua Achebe. people forget good people’s achievement easily when they die, but the truth is that our son did us proud while alive and his legacies will continue to trail the blaze. Are the Igbos contending with prof Wole Soyinka when they have a son who won for them ,awards upon awards even the Americans called him Father of African literature. so shut your mouth up when you are not informed

    • Fuzio

      The Prof is beloved by Ibos. We admire his well merited academic achievements. Admiration is not envy. You are trying to generate attention to your vacuous post.

  • Isack

    I knew it that all these rubbishing the Igbos as commented were all fabricated, The noble Professor WS can never engage himself with such discriminatory comments.

  • Sola Olorunyomi

    By the way, was the reaction to the Havard Lecture in reference to the young man who saw the insanity of a looming civil war and denounced it, travelled to the so-called enemy territory and got imprisoned by the Fed. Govt., narrowly missing being poisoned to death on same account after declaring a Third Force to avoid the unnecessary cannage, blood bath and genocide that followed when all bigots couldn’t listen to a youthful sage, Soyinka? Are all our bigots across board aware that the two eminent men of African letters–Achebe and Soyinka–remained friends until the former departed us? On whose behalf are these modern day clowns speaking? And back to Havard, obviously not on behalf of a WS that the world has come to know as an unrepentant humanist.
