  1. Olatoun Williams and Lesley Lababidi remain two of the strongest voices championing African Literature and Culture on the Planet. Their Altruism is a Blessing. Their work may outlive all the archaeological treasures of the Middle East and Africa.

    • Craig! Your comment touched me deeply, though undeserving, your thought are most appreciative and received with gratitude. I hope your world moves in harmony. Thank you for your most welcome comment. I have sent it to Olatoun, L.

  2. It is, indeed, an appealing interview, particularly to those who want to explore detail about you and your writings. I wish your picture of coronation is included in your memoir, “Paddle”. This beautiful interview of yours encourages me to remind you about the need to embark on writing a ‘Collaborative Life Writing’ of yours or get someone to transcribe your life, in form of Biography. Your LIFE is important in academia.

    • Dear Murtala,
      Your words lift my spirit and encourage me. You don’t know how much your comments mean to me. Just to be clear, I wasn’t a chief during the time period ‘Paddle’ is set which was the 1970s. I became a chief in 1998 so it was not appropriate for me to include this part. I have not written about my chieftancy so I was happy that Olatoun included that question in her interview.
      Thank you, Murtala!
