I Should Not Be Alive Right Now – Prof. Wole Soyinka Makes Shocking Revelation About Himself

Highly respected Nigerian Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, said he ought to have died going by his lifestyle.

This was the shocking response by the 83 year-old professor of literature and political activist to a question by the Financial Times of London, on how long he intends to live.

“By all logic I should not be alive right now because of my lifestyle,” he replied.

“I flout everything they teach at medical school, including the fact that I don’t drink water. I eat only when I want to. I don’t obey the rules of cholesterol,” he added during the conversation with David Pilling, the FT Africa editor, at the Pescatori restaurant in west London.

Soyinka, gulped in between his meal, a bottle of Arneis Langhe wine valued at £45 and two glasses of another wine Montepulciano valued at £27.80.
