  1. One of d most respectable,prolific writer of our time,Dead?Quiet unbelievable,d man whom after Zik of Africa,I duff my hat for,so harsh wit words,but humble @ heart,ur latest work,”There was a Country”,stil reverberates in my subconscious mind,cuz it a gav me an insight into ur early life,hw u eventually embraced or did wat I attribute as a cross-over,frm core sciences to Arts,which finally shot u into lime light,nominated and given national awards twice,if I’m not mistaken,u turned both down….May ur Indefatigable soul rest in Perfect peace,Amen!!!
