The literary experts were pictured together in a photo shared by Adichie on her Instagram page. In her caption, Adichie expressed awe for and gratitude to Soyinka describing him as a “guiding light”.
Read her full caption:
You are, for me, a guiding light:
Your courage. The ease with which you inhabit your skin, speaking your mind, unburdened by apology.
Your kindness and humour.
Your utter coolness.
The urgent, terse poetry of The Man Died, the exuberance of Ake; your faith in possibility, in adventure, in progress.
Yes indeed, ‘the mindless ones are neither the total sum nor the true face of humanity.’
Thank you, Prof.
