A Page From allAfrica.com: In memoriam...CYPRIAN EKWENSI


Headline: Cyprian Ekwensi Dies At 86
Link:

I'll always remember Cyprian Ekwensi most especially for one of my favorite childhood books, AKIN, THE DRUMMER BOY, and much later on JAGUA NANA, JAGUA NANA'S DAUGHTER,SURVIVE THE PEACE and THE PASSPORT OF MALLAM ILLIA. Those books as well as the others he wrote were full of realistic characters and situations and will be the legacy he'll leave behind.Ekwensi will be sadly missed and on behalf of Nigerians, I pray for his soul to rest in Perfect Peace. AMIN.
