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.

Maya Angelou because I love her poetic voice. Alice Walker, because her stories are relatable on so many levels. She tells stories about realistic characters and issues that I can relate to.
