Kongi's harvest...I've no idea he has a son..never heard..most children of distinguished men,legend only live in the Shadow of glory of their famous father or mother as the case maybe..but ...


most can never step into the experience-worn shoes of those father.. can never be like them...no matter how hard they try ..the difference ,as the say ,will be there.. and will always be clear!!


ask seun kuti...even with his father dead many years now..he's still no where near fela monumental larger than image..I still listen fela till tomorrow...



ask gani fawehimi'son ..same story


same goes for the renowned late novelist, chinua Achebe...anybody cares to tell me what his children are up to since the iroko fell to the land of the silent ancestors



what abt Ali,Martins Luther king jr..Albert Einstein.. etc..I'm sure all the great men has grown ass children somewhere..but nobody hears a sh*t about em



you know what I think ...I think every man is shaper,the moulder of STRICTLY his own destiny in life
!.....this sort of thing can never be sexually transmitted... that's one



2,whenever I hear parents say ignorantly.. I love my children.. I don't want them to go through what I had been through in my life..l just laugh at their stupidity and naivety!this is exactly why we are saddled with indomie generation, who grew up and was weaned on Nickelodeon ,Zee world ,smuggled phone into examination hall to Google up answers, generation who thinks brandishing a latest iPhone is success status symbol..generation who prefers the route to the least path of resistance, to burning the midnight candle...entering through the backdoor of corner corner school ,acquired mere paper, many with questionable 'distinctions'they obviously cannot defend or withstand serious scrutiny and diligent veracity, and finally exiting ,armed with mediocrity, like medallion, sporting lack of creativity ,like a stripes and garbed in a delusive air of pseudointellectuals.. in an age where kids in other more organized society are making the same iPhone a grown- up ass here be
flaunting up and down like a aster!





see!...no pain no gain..!all we need to do is get our priorities right!

and must be ready to make the necessary sacrifice too!
if you are crazy enough to want to be different, to stand apart,even though the world opinion maybe to the opposite, then you are ready to Stand Out!these people, The like of Wole don't have two heads! they were simply more focused,had a set goal,vision and combined with perseverance, commitment,some suffering,yes,suffering! making do with what they got,today kongis reaping the fruit of his labour.. a citizen of the world.,he once said he doubt whether present day Nigeria, with its largely unfocused, distracted, army of idle youths, could replicate their feat (his and Achebe's) after many decades has gone now...I guess he wasn't all that far from the bitter truth.... the challenge is still very much there..

cingrat Prof ..many happy return on this day ..and to think the young Man married an Igbo...hmmm
it is a good thing ..all the best

Haba!! shocked Kongi has plenty children, nah! grin cheesy His son Olaokun is a medical doctor and was once a Commissioner of Health in Ogun State. Another of his sons called Makin, is a film & TV documentary producer/director. Soyinka also has a daughter called Moremi. Unfortunately, he lost one of his daughters called Iyetade about 4 years ago. cry He has other children as well.

What’s that on the bride’s mum’s head? This is fashion disaster. Compare with the lady beside Soyinka, Soyinka’s partner is elegant and beautiful. Our Igbo women need to dress better.

Brides dad look like Robert Mugabe and the groom look more like a page boy. Somebody tell me this boy isn’t an adolescent and underaged.
