Window Seat Saga: “It was a minor thing” Wole Soyinka Finally Replies…

If you read one of our trending stories for yesterday, you’d recall the drama concerning Prof. Wole Soyinka, Tonye Cole, and ‘The Window Seat.

Well, if you can’t remember, let me quickly refresh your memory. Nobel Laureate, Wole Soyinka was on a plane and eventually sat on the wrong seat (The window seat… Who doesn’t like the view from above right?), the rightful passenger of the seat came up and asked him to move off from his seat.

And CEO and billionaire, Patrick Tonye took to Instagram to report the matter as a disrespectful move from the rightful owner of the seat.

With celebrities like Mo Abudu and Kate Henshaw also expressing their criticism of the action.

But most Nigerians were of a contrary opinion and even went ahead to criticize the EbonyLife CEO for tagging the action as “disrespect

Here are the reactions of Nigerians on the matter.

So far, neither Wole Soyinka nor Mo Abudu have spoken on the matter until now.

Some hours ago, the EbonyLife CEO in an Instagram post shared Wole Soyinka’s side of the story as written by the Nobel Laureate himself.

 Hello Mo, 
Someone sent me Patrick Tonye’s comment on the plane incident, and I saw your brief comment. It was a very minor thing and I’d forgotten all about it. However, after reading the boy’s response, I became curious. First, I never exchanged a word with him throughout beyond inviting him to take his allotted seat. Never spoke a word to him after that. Certainly never exchanged contact. So of course, I wonder if it’s the very individual  who‘s posted this or a total fake. The phenomenon of stolen identities takes very strange dimensions and has become a source of worry. I wonder if this is one such. Anyway of your finding out. I don’t operate in the social media as you probably recall
