Reno stated on his twitter handle:

Between Chinua Achebe and Professor Wole Soyinka, I would gove the @NobelPrize for Literature to Achebe 100 times out of 100 times. I don’t understand how Soyinka got it and Achebe did not. I read their books. Achebe’s works are by far the more superior works of literature.”

While some folks approved of Omokri stance about who deserves the honour between the known novelist and the dramatist, others condemned and argued otherwise.

Here is what went down on Twitter.

You will recall that in 1986, Professor Wole Soyinka was honoured with the Nobel prize award for literature for his works and impact on the world of literature.
