Good to see (partially) Free State writing recognised in this book. We know people like Bolaji and lechesa are icons here – Lechesa in particular has done great things, bringing the Eastern Free State into the literary equation
The good – or bad – that we do, lives after us. The world of arts and culture is so difficult and demands a selflessness that many in our locations would associate with being crazy. that is the burden that we writers have to pay; including women becoming disenchanted with us. Writers like Bolaji and Lechesa have overstretched themselves for the cause. But recognition will come one way or the other; like in this book. Actually I was supposed to be in this book but if I remember well I did not make the deadline. But no sour grapes – well done everybody!
