To an average Nigerian, especially the academicians, Professor Akinwumi Isola is a proven Yoruba lecturer of rare knowledge. He is distinct, most grounded and versed... when it comes to issues relating to Yoruba language. He has authored so many books in the language and still has many in the offing. Meanwhile, as a man of many parts, the retired university don projects differently to the showbiz world. To them, he is a genius playwright, a unique actor who is never deterred by age or status once he is on the screen. In this close up with him by YEMISI ADENIRAN, the 69 year-old culturist unfolds his humble beginning, his dramatic journey into the world of writing, how he coped with women in his youthful years and why the promotion of indigenous languages is mandatory for all parents.
