Wanted dead or alive: Happy African Writers!
Mukoma wa Ngugi disagrees with Ikhide Ikheloa on the aesthetic parameters of African literature.
"But that is the weaker principle in his argument. What I am interested in is his assertion that “many writers are skewing their written perspectives to fit what they imagine will sell to the West and the judges of the Caine Prize.”
Does Mukoma have a strong argument, or is he just trying to shoot down Ikhide?
