Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka, officially launched the Wole Soyinka Foundation on Saturday, October 24th at the Cultural Centre in Kuto, Abeokuta, Ogun State.
The event was attended by numerous public figures including Adams & Iara Oshiomhole, Donald Duke, Rotimi Amaechi, Ibikunle Amosun, and more.
Sahara Reporters describes the foundation as “a retreat haven for writers.”
During the event, Soyinka also launched his new book titled, InterInventions.
Speaking about the book, he stated:
“(InterInventions), it is the nastiest book I have ever written. It is so truthful that it hurts… it is my vengeance against public lies. It is not one of the butterfly books. No, it is not a butterfly book.
I want to draw blood (with it). I’m warning all of you, if you feel vengeful, read this book and you will be alright. It is like homeopathic medicine.”
