As a writer, most of my role models are Authors.. as an African, i look up to African Authors that have achieved greatness in this field..
One of such people is Chinua Achebe, the Author of most of the books i read during my childhood.. Things fall apart, Arrow of God… and many more. He helped to develop my sense of story telling, he helped construct my imagination.
For that i will always be grateful.
Chinua Achebe died aged 82 in Boston Massachusetts – United States of America on the 21st of March 2013.
We wish his family goodwill and strenght to bear this huge loss.
His life will foerever be celebrated.
If you have read any of his books, do not hesitate to leave a comment.. A legend has left us.. RIP CHINUA!
