Chimamanda Adichie expressed awe for and gratitude to Soyinka describing him as a “guiding light”, as she shared a picture of the pair on her Instagram page.

Sharing the photo, Chimamanda Adichie wrote;

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.
