Among the giants

This photograph was sent to me by Maryam Ali Ali, a poet/novelist friend who (like me)is a member of Association of Nigerian Authors. You could see her among some of the leading Nigerian intellectual giants - Prof. Emeka Anyaoku (former general secretary of the Commonwealth), on her right, and Prof. Wole Soyinka (Nobel prize winner). The photo was taken in Ibadan last year during the ANA collequiem in honour of Prof. Soyinka.

I wonder just what she was feeling at that material time. I'd feel like an ant among the poplars!

I want to use this opportunity to thank Mr Charles ANTHONY who finally helped me to become a full member of the Great Illuminati Brotherhood and now i am living my life in happiness. and I was once indigent and live my life in extreme poverty and the standard of living became so poor and low that I even taught of killing myself, and he told me to get ready for my initiation day and that all new members has a certain reward of $ 100000 USD on your initiation day. so i was initiated to the Illuminati world and few days i was awarded a contract worth of Thousands of Dollars, in my business i am doing very well right now, I did exactly what i was ask to do and today the story has change, I am a living testimony, my dream and all the wealth, fame, success and riches, i have ever desired is been made a reality. All the same thanks to Mr Charles Anthony who made my dreams a reality by helping me become a member of the great Illuminati. Hurry up now you can whats-app him on +2348119132137 or email. johndavid2135@gmail.com
