Last year Wole Soyinka came to Trinidad and for a couple days they assigned me to follow him around on emancipation day. We talked about everything, or rather I mumbled a bit and he talked and I tried not to drop and roll about on the floor screaming ‘I’m talking to Wole!’ Soon after we took this picture he slipped out of the VIP room and sat by himself watching the proceedings. Anyway time for the speech I’m trying to get him to the stage without the whole of the Savannah stopping him. But he is such an Esu man he escaped on his own and by the time I found him, he was liming with the drummers backstage. #wolesoyinka #80 #happybirthday
