Arrow of God by Chinua Achebe. Best I've ever read by far.

Someone above mentioned Palm-wine Drinkard by Amos Tutola. Had to read the novel in school, very funny book indeed.

Without a silver spoon and Half of a yellow sun. Although I loved without a silver spoon when I was much younger, the sequel just didn't deliver like I expected.
