March 23, 2013 – Prof. Chinua Achebe Is Not Dead

Pls, stop saying that Prof. Chinua Achebe is dead. He is not! And stop saying that he should “Rest In Peace.” Achebe has just moved to another realm, not dead. He can’t “Rest In Peace” when in Igbo cosmology he would be consulted from time to time. Achebe is a Saint, if I must use that word. Bcs, in Basillica, the clerics still consult their Saints in prayers. Pls, Achebe is not dead, and anybody that is wishing him “Rest In Peace” would be doing the spirit bad.

  1. The great legend, hero, master of literature in d world. The pillar that holds OGIDI…………oh dead you have done your worst! Why do you lay your cold hands on this great man?…….Chinua Achebe. RIP till we meet to part no more

  2. Igbo cosmology or not, truth is he is dead. Meaning he can’t publish anymore. Africans have a way of deceiving themselves. I don’t want to be part of that deception.
