The Nobel Laureate who is currently in New York for an event sponsored by New York University – Institute of African American Affairs delivered a mind blowing lecture titled “Negritude By Any Other Name” yesterday.

Those present at the event revealed that Soyinka was very proud of his Yoruba heritage.

At a point during the lecture, he was quoted to have said:

“I would have preferred to do my lectures in yoruba if only the audience can understand me”.

Here are the first photos from the event…

    We were blessed to have Wole Soyinka visit us in NY. The topic:”Negritude By Any Other Name”. It was a topic Soyinka delivered from the high table.Local people wanted to know what is this topic? And so for them simply put in the language of today (straight out of our neighborhood)Negritude is a case of NWA (negroes with attitudes)..
