MAJOR SPONSOR OF 2012 WS PRIZE
Glo Nigeria
The next edition of Wole Soyinka Prize for literature in Africa will take place in Lagos, Nigeria on Saturday, May 5, 2014. Due to the fact that it coincides with the eightieth birthday celebration of Prof. Wole Soyinka, the Board of Trustees of the prize unanimously voted for the prestigious prize named after the First African Nobel Laureate in Literature, to take place in his homeland. We do hope that all those who had hoped it would take place in Ghana would understand that this is one year the Prize cannot take place outside` the birthplace of the icon.
