Professor Sole Soyinka that's not because of his feat( Nobel laureate )but because it is deserving-He writes in like manner with George Orwell,Exposing the ills of African leaders and still making African cultural heritage dynamic even during the racism years of 1960-70's. His use of Imagery and concise literary techniques is worthwhile.

Beverley Ann Scott. She's an incredibly talented Trinidadian author. Her book "Stolen Cascadura" is one of my favorite books.
