The Secretary General of the Committee For Relevant Art (CORA), Toyin Akinosho on Tuesday recounted the contributions of the late Chinua Achebe to the evolution of African literature. Speaking as a guest on Channels Television’s breakfast programme, Sunrise Daily, Mr Akinosho said the late author used his writings to incorporate Africans into the global discuss.
“That phrase that we’ve all heard about ‘telling our own stories’ is essentially an ‘Achebian’ phrase. We all borrowed it from him,” he said.
