Kid Approaches Wole Soyinka During Train Ride, Asks For His Autograph (Photos, Video)

A small boy walked up to Nigerian Nobel Laureate Wole Soyinka and gave him a piece of paper to sign an autograph for him, IgbereTV reports.

The kid, his father, and Soyinka were all on the new speed train that plies Lagos, Abeokuta, and Ibadan.

Wole Soyinka signed on the piece of paper, and noted the date and place that the signature was given.

Sharing photos and a video of the event on Twitter, the kid's dad identified as Alli-Balogun H. Lekan wrote:

"My Son braves the odds. He approached Prof. Soyinka for an autograph. Baba obliged him.

Children get away with a lot."

Wao
That is so cool.

Unlike some men who would prefer Wole Soyinka spraying some cash to his autograph.

The child has been exposed and enlightened to the good side of life from childhood. I love the father and son

Lol its obvious the kid is from parents who have good heads on their shoulders. If it was a kid from parents who breed like pigs and produce potential recruits for 1 million boys, you'll hear the kid say "opoor". grin and he'll probably ask prof Soyinka for money.

When you see a grade A student you know..

Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old you know the rest..
