[…] today we posted about the trending issue involving Wole Soyinka, Tonye Cole and the unknown young man who told Soyinka to vacate his allotted window […]


lol. Nigerians, steady drinking panadol for another person’s headache since 1960. What is Mr Tonye’s own? Did Wole Soyinka complain???


The guy could have respectfully demanded to sit on his seat. Nothing spoil!


[…] Everything except the incident that happened on that plane. […]


I actually read this article twice trying to understand why Toye wrote about this incident. Wole did not contend with the young chap – aware that he was only asking for what rightfully belong to him. But what is Toye’s joy in telling the story only to ridicule Shoyinka – talking about respect for the elderly? At least the boy didn’t tell the whole world that rare minds like Wole’s are covetous too. Papa gave you opportunity to take a pishur you will show to your entire village pipu and this is how you decided to pay back. Diariz God!
