Prof. Akinwumi Isola (NNOM)

A prolific and versatile writer, Professor Isola has shown great distinction as a creative writer, most of his plays involve extensive historical and cultural research. No other Yoruba writer, past or present, has exhibited so much interest in the history of Yoruba women. He is not only unique as a male writer on the theme of Yoruba women’s history, but he is unequalled in the creative presentation of history through the combined genres of verse and drama. His literary works are inspired and are widely regarded in the world of learning as models of literary genius in Yoruba literature.
