Designing Wole Soyinka

Animation and design studio Dudutoonz (see he company’s work here and here) celebrates Wole Soyinka–the first African to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature–with this stunning piece. (BTW, Albert Camus was the first African born winner, but identified as French. Other African African writers awarded the prize are Naguib Mahfouz, Nadime Gordimer and J M Coetzee. And Doris Lessing was born in Persia–now Iran–but grew up in Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe (H/T: Akin Omotoso).
