Arts, Culture & Environment - We mourn Prof. Chinua Achebe's passage & Arts Update
On the show today, we were joined by Lonwabo Busakwe - Journalist, Activist and Musician. We were talking
about the late Chinua Achebe and how his writings influenced Lonwabo. Nigerian born Chinua Achebe is one of the most highly
known African authors and many critics saw him as a visionary, while others saw
him as a voice for the Nigerian culture, giving him the reputation as the
“father of the African novel in English.” The world is mourning the passing of Professor Achebe, who died at age 82 last month. For more information about Lonwabo
