WHEN SOYINKA WAS ORDERED OUT OF PLANE SEAT


Professor Wole Soyinka has torched debate in Nigeria after he was ordered out of a seat onboard a flight by a young man over the weekend.

Media mogul Mo Abudu is one of those who leapt to the nobel laureate’s defence. But opinions were divided on the matter.

She has now said, 'good morning beautiful people. Its 6.30 am here in Los Angeles. Quite a bit has been said about me making certain comments about the young man that refused to give up his seat for Professor Wole Soyinka'.

 'I will not comment further on this, however as you all know I LOVE and RESPECT Professor Wole Soyinka dearly. Based on this incident, I did receive an email from Professor Wole Soyinka this morning'.

Hallo Mo,
Someone sent me Patrick Tonye's comment on the plane incident, and I saw your brief comment. It was a very minor thing and I'd forgotten all about it. However, after reading the boy's response, I became curious.

First, I never exchanged a word with him throughout beyond inviting him to take his allotted seat. Never spoke a word to him after that. Certainly never exchanged contact. So of course, I wonder if it's the very individual  who's posted this or a total fake.

 The phenomenon of stolen identities takes very strange dimensions and has become a source of worry. I wonder if this is one such. Any way of your finding out. I don't operate in the social media as you probably recall.
