This guy has done the same with literature u are just 3 blind to see it.

You have sold urself all out...to the point nothing remains of you.
The whites you rep, practice their culture from pen to paper...
Please learn to applaud your fellow Nigerian, blacks, Africans who remember a bit element of their culture and uphold it.

HE is making lots of sense .You can never be a prolific writer writing in somebody else's language . No British writer would have won any awards writing in any borrowed language .

Here are photos from the formal presentation of the $100,000 (over N36million) NLNG prize for Literature to the erudite poet, Ikeogu Oke at Muson Centre, Lagos on Wednesday. Prolific writer, poet and journalist, Ikeogu Oke, rocked an unusual attire as he was awarded for winning the 2017 edition of the Nigerian Prize for Literature, with his “The Heresiad’’, after an intensive process of adjudication.

Meanwhile, president Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated Ikeogu Oke, for the award.

President Buhari commended Oke’s passion and commitment to lifting the genre of poetry in the country; an art that many shy away from due to the required discipline and focus, reflective thinking and unique style of writing.

So he should just throw away his culture and pretend that he's western? What Are u saying? India and China are leading the world in technology and they speak their language and wear their attire with pride.
What kind of inferiority complex is this?
SoNature:


Shvt that trap! Acquiring knowledge doesn't mean he should discard his culture.

After all the Arabs are doing so well in next-gen technology and architectural designs but they still maintain their culture - both in dressing and laws

Dunno why Africans are their own biggest cultural critics

That guy has a point. Imagine if Europeans or Asians strictly stuck with their old traditions do you think they would have advanced as they have done today? You need to drop the old ways as better ways of doing stuffs come up. There is no need dressing like that when there are modern clothings to make you look more appealing.

Wole Soyinka won the 1986 Nobel Prize in Literature. Whom among your tribesmen has achieved that feat? You see how stupid you are? You even lost at your own cretinous game.

Tribalism is for moröns with diseased souls. Laying claim to the achievement of another person simply because he's from your tribe is pathetic. Shows what sort of a loser you are.

I'm sure you're also eager to identify with the drug pushers among you.

Language is a means of communication. Our culture remains our identity. We should be proud of it.
