Nigerian Writer Wins 2012 Caine Prize

A few weeks ago I introduced y’all to Rotimi Babatunde (Read post here), a Nigerian writer whose book ‘Bombay Republic’, which revolves around the experiences of Nigerian soldiers who fought in the Burma campaign during World War II, was short-listed for the Caine’s Prize for African Writing, Africa’s leading literary award.
Well he won! Rotimi Babatunde was presented the award at a dinner held at the Bodleian Library in Oxford yesterday evening.
Attaboy!
