Chinua Achebe as we all no was one of the best Nigerian novelist, poet and professor that ever lived ,he was known to be the father of Poetry.
Chinua Achebe was popularly known known for his first novel which was a master piece which is the most widely read book in modern Africa literature, known as Things Fall Apart.
He also wrote other books like No Longer at ease, Arrow of God,A man of the people,and lots more.
I actually got to know about Chinua Achebe in my childhood days and then if you actually don't know him or haven't read his books it was like a disgrace to your personality.
Chinua Achebe's books was an instrument to shape young mind to been to a better person, that was why back then it was recommended in every schools novel curriculum
Chinua Achebe books also helped in shaping our culture,cause it speaks most of culture and African tradition, especially the Igbos.
That is why is forever remembered in the history of the Igbo land as an icon, because of his beautiful novels and he was also a spokesman for the Biafran cause in Europe and North America.
And despite his death,he has never been forgotten in the hearts of many.
Thanks for reading,do well to like and follow.
